    Windows Movie Maker

    I don't know what the rest of you use, but the past couple of versions of Windows Movie Maker is capable of doing everything I need it to do. Video editing software is so expensive today I just can't justify buying something when you get so much with this program. Comments please

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    I say its okay. Thats all i have at the time but i will be getting CS3 soon which comes with lots of stuff for video editing.
    Download Photostory 3! I really like it. There is only a few things different you can do, like you can make it zoom in on someone's face or your R/C truck. If you have a mic you can add a voice message. For example when your savage shows up you can say "This is my savage with a march .28" etc....I usuall just add my pictures, do the transitions, and skip the option of adding a song and save it. I then go to windows movie maker and add the videos to it, and the music. I then add it to windows DVD maker and put the "cover" or whatever you want to call it, where it shows the start option, and the scene's option.

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    Movie maker is pretty good. I use Adobe Premiere because I need to super-impose copyright info and I don't think MM is capable of super-imposition.

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    Movie Maker is really good. You can lay your camcorder on it's side
    and record ( I use the 'Flip' Ultra ).

    Then Movie Maker can flip it and rotate it back to normal. It's great
    for that and much more.

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    I have enjoyed Microsoft Movie Maker for several years and have edited "almost" all of my Videos with it but, the only thing that I do not like is this program somehow is impeded with the MS OS and depending on what Microsoft OS version your computer is operating it might have different results / options.

    I have an HP Pavilion 760n, model number P6320A (Originally came with 120G HD, 512G RAM) and operating with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition. Somewhere along the line the Microsoft Movie Maker STOPPED working and the video editing software comes up for a few seconds to only give me an error saying there was "An Error Occurred and Program Shutting Down"

    I have tried restoring the computer to an earlier date, nope that did not work, I have since bought new memory a 2700 series 333 / 400 speed 1.0 Giga-Byte DIMM module and that did not help.

    I finally was able to figure out how to create complete "Recovery" CD's all 9 of them and have yet to issue the Recovery process as I like to try several other things.

    When you go to Microsoft Web Site it tells you that you need to install:

    Download Instructions

    Movie Maker 2.1 is available for download with Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2). You can download SP2, Movie Maker 2.1, and all future critical updates automatically by turning on the Automatic Updates feature in Windows XP.

    Well, I have and still nothing!!!!!!![>:]

    I just don't know why MS does this and has MM part of the OS?? I think that I have loaded all the way to Service Pack 3 because my OS is the 32bit running version and anyway there's no SP3 for the 64-bit version of Windows XP. You would think that all these MS Auto Updates would fix my Movie Maker, NOT!!!

    I am considering buying another separate Video capture and editing Software as it has been my experience that MS MM is just too flaky!!

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    Windows Movie Maker is my love/hate affliction. It seems everyone has had some problem with it crashing, being slow, not rendering properly, etc. I also hated how I had to convert my clips. Now that I'm using Ubuntu, I miss Movie Maker, because it has an interface like no other, I guess. It was easy to use and easy to manipulate to get pretty good movies, and in conjunction with Wax 2.o pretty cool effects. 

    Now there was on other thing I meant to say and I now I can't think of it. :/ 

    Oh yeah, WMM limits your outputs! You have no choice to keep the exported movie the same quality as the raw files. The newer WLMM is a bit better but abandons some of the more useful features and the timeline bar...so it's a tossup. 

    Right now I'm using Openshot because Kdenlive bugs out on me every time I try and use it.

    RE: Windows Movie Maker

    I don't use Windows Media Player because I like to have lots of export options and be able to control the video quality very well. With WMM it's very hard to get good quality without getting a huge file. I used to use Ulead Media Studio, until it was discontinued. Now I use Adobe Premiere Pro CS4, which i've come to like very much.

    I don think so jak. I recommend a Sony Movie editor, like so; http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...=REG&A=details
    I use it, and it was easy to learn, nearly bug free, and can render in a number of resolutions.

    Thank you. I will try it and maybe I will also try pinnacle 14,16... So far I used movie maker and in the past pinnacle 9 but it crashed a lot, maybe because of my PC. I don't know if I'm allowed to post videos here. This is made with windows movie maker although not the best resolution. 18 min, a little long I know..
