How Do I Save a Video From Movie Maker to My Iphone Camera Roll?

Have you ever edited a video on Movie Maker and wanted to save it to your iPhone camera roll? Well, you’re in luck because it’s actually a simple process! In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps on how to do it.

Step 1: Export Your Video

The first step is to export your video from Movie Maker. To do this, click on the “Home” tab and then select “Export” from the dropdown menu.

Choose Your Settings

Once you’ve selected “Export,” a new window will pop up where you can choose your settings. Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • File name: Make sure to give your video a name so that you can easily find it later.
  • Preset: For iPhone compatibility, select “720p” or “1080p” from the dropdown menu.
  • Destination: Choose where you want to save your video. We recommend saving it to your desktop for easy access.

Step 2: Transfer Your Video

Now that your video has been exported from Movie Maker, it’s time to transfer it to your iPhone. Here’s how:

  • iTunes: Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. Select your device, then click on the “File Sharing” option.

    Find the app where you want to save the video (in this case, the camera roll) and drag the exported file into that folder.

  • Airdrop: If you have a Mac and an iPhone that both support Airdrop, simply open Airdrop on both devices and drag the exported file from your computer to your iPhone.
  • Email: If your video file is small enough, you can simply attach it to an email and send it to yourself. Open the email on your iPhone and save the attachment to your camera roll.

Step 3: Save Your Video

Once you’ve transferred your video to your iPhone, it’s time to save it to your camera roll. Here’s how:

  • Photos App: Open the Photos app on your iPhone and find the video in your camera roll. Tap on it to open it, then tap on the “Share” icon (the square with an upward arrow). Select “Save Video” from the options.
  • iCloud: If you have iCloud enabled on both devices, you can simply save the video to iCloud from your computer and then access it on your iPhone through the Photos app.


And there you have it! With these simple steps, you can easily save a video from Movie Maker to your iPhone camera roll.

Whether you’re editing videos for personal or professional use, this is a handy skill to have in your arsenal. Happy editing!
