Summary

You can add many kinds of imaging devices to your Windows XP computer. Most of them will be detected by the operating system and installed automatically using Plug and Play. However, as you saw at the start of this chapter, you can also choose from the device drivers that Microsoft supplies, or you can use a disk from the manufacturer to install an imaging device. Most of this chapter, however, concentrated on using the Windows Movie Maker accessory so that you can create your own digital movies.

Windows Movie Maker is ideal for making movies that you want to share with others who use Windows operating systems. You can use Movie Maker to capture both video and audio, edit the clips you record, and produce a final movie file output. If you want to create output files that use a format other than the .WMV format, you will need to use a third-party application to edit a movie. However, for most users, Windows Movie Maker provides all you need to produce quality presentations. You can post movies you make to a Web site, or e-mail them to a friend. You can also use the built-in technology burning CDs.
