Chapter 11. Windows Movie Maker

11. Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker lets you transfer audio and video to your computer from a video camera, VCR, web camera, or other video source and use that as raw material for your own movies. You can combine footage, still photos, music tracks, videos, voice-over narratives, and other media files. Then you can edit; add titles, video transitions, and special effects; and save the result as a stand-alone file in Windows Media Audio/Video (.wmv) format. Your movie is ready to play or to share with friends and enemies via email, web, or disk.

✓ Tips

  • Video editing is a computer-intensive activity that requires at least a 2 GHz processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a fast hard disk (7200 rpm or better) with a lot of free space.

  • Many Windows XP installations include Movie Maker 1 or 2. Microsoft released Movie Maker 2.1 as part of Service Pack 2, but you can download it independently via Windows Update or at www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/moviemaker.
