I have the D3100 and assume the D3200 is almost identical apart from the Mpa.
Set your camera to Manual exposure, your ISO to Manual and a suitable value for conditions along with Aperture and Shutter speed.
Take a stills photo of the area you are going to video as a check for sufficient light. If image comes out ok, go into video mode without changing any settings.
Set Picture Control
F # ISO
1.4-2.8 200
4-5.6 400-640
8-11 800-1200
16-32 1600+
J. Dennis Thomas in his book recommends using Manual or Aperature Priority and set the Aperature using the command dial. The shutter in video is electronic and is operated by the camera alone not user.
He recommends using the Exposure Compensation and command dial to alter exposure during filming. The camera chooses the ISO settings for you.
You can also use the AE-L and lock it,to set the Exposure before going to Live View.
Using a smaller aperture will slow down the shutter speed and give a smoother video. Pan slowly.
Hope this helped.
Don't give up on Nikon yet, but find out how to use the camera in video mode.
If you use the camera in Portrait you need free downloadable software to turn your video images, called VIDEOSOFT.
To change to DVD or .WMV from Quicktime use CONVERTALITE free downloadable. Do it in this order.

Good luck.
