Its main advantage definitely is accessibility.
Anyone can use this intuitive program and obtain professional-looking videos.
The first step of obtaining a movie in Windows Movie Maker is importing audio, video or music, using the file browser or the drag and drop capability.
The most common formats are supported. Afterwards, you can start editing: add visual effects, video transitions, credits, titles, delete bad scenes etc.
There are so many effects available that an average user won’t feel the need of using a more advanced video editor. The separate files are still available in the Storyboard.
Windows Movie Maker proves to be really up to date since it allows you to share the videos after you have finished creating and editing them, via e-mail or on the Web (Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, OneDrive etc.) Windows Movie Maker also offers you support in case you want to save the movie on a CD, DVD or to a digital camera, so you can play it on a TV or on the camera.
Vista users who cannot run the Vista version of Windows Movie Maker are advised to install Windows Movie Maker 2.6.
This piece of software from Microsoft uses a moderate amount of system resources and it will not affect the performance of your computer while editing your home videos.
Windows Movie Maker is the perfect choice for average users who want to get amazing results without needing to learn how to use a complex tool. This application offers more possibilities than you think.
Many improvements have been made since the first release of Windows Movie Maker, in 2000.
