Windows Movie Maker icon Turn your videos and photos into movies and share them with your friends and family by relying on this easy to use and very versatile application


Windows Movie Maker (Windows Live Movie Maker) is a video editing application that enables you to transform images, audio files, and short clips into full blown movies. It accepts all types of media, including photos from digital cameras, flash cards, mobile phones, and DVDs.

Enhance videos with a variety of effects

Windows Movie Maker lets you choose between AutoMovie themes (which are very nicely designed), transitions (which can be slightly configured), visual effects (you can choose from categories such as Cinematic, Mirror, Motion and Fades), and text for title, captions, and credits.

Accommodation is a walk in the park since the application follows the modern design of Microsoft applications, with the Ribbon menu providing quick and comfortable access to most functions you work with.

Professional video editing can be achieved via fade effects, adjusting the speed, split and trim functions. Your movies gain a plus of the unique factor if you add transitions and animations (for which you can customize the duration).

Include audio layers and export

Music can be attached to the entire movie or just to a portion of it. The movie itself can be "expanded" (i.e. a caption remains on screen longer before switching to another one) to fit the music if the audio track has a larger length.

The whole project can be then saved to various formats (including the ones specific to Android or iPhone devices), even for high-definition display or burnt directly to DVD discs. You can also publish your new movie online, on social media websites such as Facebook, Youtube or OneDrive.

There’s a built-in timeline editor to carefully manage the video layer. Unfortunately, you can’t switch it to an advanced mode for multiple slots or layers on the timeline.

All in all, Windows Movie Maker sports all the necessary elements for creating a standard yet professional-looking video file. It turns your computer into your own movie studio and you into a real-life director.
