What is Movie Maker?
Movie Maker is software from Microsoft for Windows systems. Previously called Windows Live Movie Maker, the software provides the user with three main features: add and edit video clips, apply sounds and themes to the movie project, and share the finished home movie project via the Internet.
Users can add video clips from their computers or digital video-recording devices to the Movie Maker project window, and then edit these to create a home movie. Video-editing tools allow the user remove parts of the video, so only those parts that they want shown will be included in the final movie output. Users can likewise split the video into several clips, and speed up or slow down video play.
Adding an audio background is likewise a feature of the software. Users can add an audio file into the project, and then apply fade-in or fade-out effects. Users may also trim the audio file so that it starts or ends at the exact point that the user prefers.
When the movie project is done, users can share the file online through Facebook or YouTube. Movie Maker is free software that can be downloaded from the Microsoft website.
