Chapter 28. Capturing Images and Video a... > Using Windows Movie Maker

Using Windows Movie Maker

In the past, it has been necessary to purchase expensive software to create video files called movies in Windows XP. Now you will find that an application called Windows Movie Maker is part of the Accessories included with the operating system, just like WordPad and the Calculator.

Because Windows Movie Maker allows you to work in a graphical user interface (GUI), it is very easy to use. You can make movies that vary in quality, depending on the purpose of the movie. As an example, if you are going to post a movie on a Web site, you will probably choose to create a low or medium quality movie, since bandwidth might keep some users with dial-up modems from being able to download a large file. The higher the quality of movie you produce, the larger the file that is created. You may also want to create a movie and burn it to a CD to send to relatives. In this kind of situation, creating a movie at the highest quality may prove the best choice.
