Windows Live Movie Maker

Break your videos down and compose them into a beautiful symphony using the Windows Live Movie Maker. Microsoft's Windows Live Movie maker opens the producer's chair to professionals and novices alike, allowing users to craft home movies that are of professional quality.

Importing Options

Importing media into Windows Live Move Maker is rather straightforward. Simply drag and drop video files, audio clips or pictures into the application's timeline window. With your project's structure in place, assembly is simply a matter of sorting the order of the files in the timeline window. And if your media is not stored locally, you can follow the steps in the application's import wizard to capture media from a camcorder or DVD.

Effects and Editing

A stop at the "Edit" tab presents you with options for trimming, splitting and pacing your videos. The intuitive controls makes it simple to pass up on tutorials as you select a spot in a video and click the Edit tab's "Split" option to chop the clip in two.

While there is not as wide a selection of editing tools as you would find in a more robust video editing application, you will find a solid selection of transitions and color effects in Windows Live Movie Maker. The application includes transitions like dissolves and zooms, while the cache of color effects range from black and white to cinematic color washes. Windows Live Movie Maker also features text options for crafting captions and title screens.

Pros

With its low learning curve and intuitive interface, Windows Live Movie Maker is a video editor made for the masses. Windows Live Movie Maker also accepts a wide array of audio and video formats, and it provides a healthy selection of output options. The application is cost-free.

Cons

There are no audio editing tools or effects, so you will have to outsource the task of cleaning up bad audio to another application. Windows Live Movie Makers features only the most basic of video editing tools. Support for third-party plugins is restricting, ruling out the option to add more transitions and effects.
