Editing Movies with Movie Maker

Although Microsoft introduced Movie Maker in Windows 98, it wasn't until the second version, Movie Maker 2, that Movie Maker began to be noticed as an excellent video editing tool. Although nobody argues that Movie Maker lacks features found in other more expensive editing packages, Movie Maker certainly contains all the basic features that you'll need to get started.

TIP

If you plan to perform fairly advanced video editing on your computer, you should master Movie Maker before moving to a more comprehensive package, such as Adobe's Premiere Pro, which costs a few hundred dollars (see 110 About Editing Professionally with Adobe Premiere Pro). Movie Maker is a great launching pad that introduces you to video-editing skills. Although Movie Maker works with virtually any video card, you might find that upgrading to a more powerful software package also requires that you upgrade your video card, too.
