Windows Live Movie Maker is a considerable step up from its forerunner, Windows Movie Maker, and if you’re a Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 user, then you can download Windows Movie Maker for free. This software’s main aim in life is to make life easier for the home video enthusiast. Because most of us own so much digital equipment these days, we’re overloaded with photos and videos. It can sometimes be a royal pain trying to get them into a useful format to share with friends and family through various social networks. Although this is a fairly straightforward piece of editing kit, to be honest, the interface is a bit fiddly to use. The controls aren’t necessarily in the most user-friendly place and you might need to do some scrolling around which is a tiny pain.
Pro's: The editing suite is pretty user-friendly and uses thumbnails in a handy timeline which makes it easy even for total beginners to edit their home movies.
Con's: The main drawback with this software is that you’re limited to exporting in the WMV Windows format which will frustrate some users.
Conclusion: The interface is not perfect, but it’s a small moan really. Overall, if you can bear to put up with just exporting in WMV, then Windows Movie Maker makes it tons easier to upload films to the likes of You Tube, which is what it’s all about, right? And most of all, it is a free video editing software. Yes, you are free to download and use Microsoft Movie Maker.
