Windows Movie Maker has been the go-to software for quick and basic movie editing needs for a long time. Being bundled with Windows, everyone had easy access to it making it convenient. With the coming of Windows 7, Microsoft found it fitting to give Windows Movie Maker a make over. Today Windows Live Movie Maker (the new name) was officially release and is no longer in beta.
Why bother to get this new Movie Maker? Well according to Brian Hall, the big kid on the block for Microsoft’s Windows Live division, this is why you will want this new Movie Maker:
I tried out the new Movie Maker myself and I must say it is an improvement over the old one. The best way to describe it is it has some more features (yes it supports HD now!) and lacks the clumsiness of the old Movie Maker. Is it better than, say, a $300 commercial video editor? No; but it is great for us every day users who need nothing more than basic tools to create movies quickly. Plus the ability to easily share with people via the Web 2.0 is awesome.
Now, unfortunately, this new Movie Maker is only available for Windows Vista and Windows 7 users (XP gets the shaft on this one). However if you have Vista and Win7, in my opinion this new Movie Maker is well worth the download (admittedly downloading the new Movie Maker is annoying since you have to go through Windows Live).
In addition to the download link, here are some interesting and informative links on Windows Movie Maker:
