Want to create some slideshows for a birthday or a movie or MTV? Well Microsoft Service Pack 3 comes with Windows Movie Maker.
I have used this product for only three times but I am blown away about what it can do. The first time I used this was when our company had a MTV making contest when I was still one of the supervisors. What my team did was just stroll around the mall, eat out in a pizza parlor, ride bump cars and everything is captured in a video cam. We then used Windows Movie Maker to add music and effects as well as incorporate some still images to make sure that the movie will cover the entire song. It was hastily done but the good thing is that thanks to Windows Movie Maker we were able to pass our entry.
The next Movie I made was of my daughter, She was in a hammock enjoying the swings. In the original movie, the swing was too fast but when I edited it using the Windows Movie Maker, I slow down the swinging since you can actually edit your videos by scene, you can also control the phase of the movie. I incorporated a Jawaiian Song which was sung by Pati called Tali Maia, since the scene was on a beach and my daughter in a hammock. I love the song and it fit perfectly with the movie. I also added some still images, effects and transistions. I'll just update this review with the link in youtube, since the video is actually 56mb.
The third one was just for fun, trying out some tricks I learned reading online like adding some titles, credits, more effects and transistions, and the like.
This application is user-friendly, any computer novice will be able to make movie by using this application.
This software though needs to have a liscense. I just covered the liscense in my pic for privacy purposes. But so far I love this software, maybe I'll make another movie as e-gifts to my friends since the movie will be saved as .wmv extension.
