Windows Live Movie Maker

What is Windows Live Movie Maker?

Windows Live Movie Maker is a video creation and editing software that is part of the Microsoft Live Essentials suite, a collection of free downloads for the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Windows Live Movie Maker is not compatible with any version of Windows other than Windows 7.

Windows Live Movie Maker is built based on the capabilities of its predecessor, Windows Movie Maker, although it has been streamlined for more convenient general use, and some of the latter’s features were removed in favor of it being simplified; some of these features were thought to be too complicated, hence the justification for its removal. This is why Live Movie Maker had drawn criticism, and the reason that some people who were used to doing great projects on Movie Maker had instead adopted the previous versions of Movie Maker, especially Movie Maker 2.6 for Vista which is compatible with Windows 7.

Windows Live Movie Maker retains simpler aspects of Movie Maker’s feature set, and also includes a redesigned ribbon interface. Though these new renovations make creating videos far easier and quicker than before, users have less options to choose from and generally have reduced control over their output.
