Windows Movie Maker
Windows Movie Maker is the all-time favourite application for creating exceptional DIY videosby Chloe Slye
Windows Movie Maker is a useful multimedia editor that will let you create incredible videos in the simplest way.
With an excellent user interface, simply make a movie by importing audiovisual elements into the applications window. You can do this by navigating to the top bar and selecting 'Import,' or by quickly dragging anything into the suite. When you have all of the clips, images and sounds imported into the program, arrange them to your liking in the program’s timeline. In a matter of minutes you can perfect your sequencing by sliding different frames across one another, shortening clips and applying sensational over 50 transitions and 25 effects. What's more is that you can monitor any changes you make to your content in real-time with the built-in previewer.
Windows Movie Maker also lets you record if you have a webcam. Anything you capture can be instantly inserted into your work. Once you are finished you’ll have the option to export your video in Windows Media Video, save it on a DVD, share it via email or YouTube and even upload it to Windows SkyDrive.
All-in-all Windows Movie Maker is a great download to have on your computer if you love to get creative with video content.
