Chapter sixteen. Playing and Editing Dig... > Introducing Windows Movie Maker

Introducing Windows Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker really isn't a part of the operating system, in spite of what Microsoft says. It's a utility included with the OS, much the way Microsoft Calculator or Microsoft Paint have always been included with Windows. I don't think anyone could argue that video editing is a key operating system function, but because Apple started to include the iMovie video editor with all its iMacs, I'm sure Microsoft saw a competitive reason to add Windows Movie Maker to its Windows package.

In any case, if you use your camcorder a lot, you'll appreciate the fact that you have a free video-editing program sitting right on your Windows desktop. And, although it isn't the most full-featured video editor around, it has all the basic functions. For most users, it's more than good enough.
