Windows Movie Maker

If you are looking for Windows Movie Maker, you have come to the right place. We explain what Windows Movie Maker is and point you to the official download.

What is Windows Movie Maker?

Windows Movie Maker was a video creation and editing software bundled in all Windows operating systems since Windows ME, but was later discontinued after Vista. A stripped-down version replaced it, Windows Live Movie Maker for Windows 7, which had features thought by Microsoft to be superfluous and too "complicated" for general users removed.

Although critics and reviewers disparaged the initial roll-out of the Windows Movie Maker for ME because of its "woeful" lack of features and extremely bare-bones feature set – which only saves to Windows-native ASF files – the succeeding versions were well-received. The last version of Movie Maker to be made for Windows Vista was Movie Maker 6.

Windows Movie Maker (at least, for its latest version before it was discontinued) included features such as effects, video transitions, titles and credits, timeline narration and even an Auto Movie capability where you can simply put a video track and an audio track and the movie wizard will automatically create a simple movie for you. Movie Maker also features a robust audio editing capability that allows users to put basic audio effects on the track (such as fade in and fade out) and export it in an audio file output instead of a video.
