What is Windows Movie Maker?: 

What is Windows Movie Maker? Movie Maker is video creating/editing software that is included in recent versions of Microsoft Windows. It contains features such as effects, transitions, titles/credits, audio track, timeline narration and others.

Brief Information: 

Brief Information Windows Movie Maker was introduced in 2000 with Windows Me, but suffered from poor reviews due to its modest feature set in comparison with the year-old iMovie product on the Apple Macintosh. Version 1.1 was included in Windows XP a year later, and included support for creating AVI and WMV 8 files, as well as DV support. Version 2.0 was released as a free update in November 2002, which added a number of new features. Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 introduced a new version of Windows Movie Maker, 2.5, with more transitions and support for DVD burning.

Brief Information: 

Brief Information In Windows Vista, Windows Movie Maker has been upgraded to version 6 to match the version number of the operating system, the SDK however refers to it as version 3.0. It is included in all editions with the exception of Windows Vista Starter. A high-definition version is included in Home Premium and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista.

Brief Information: 

Brief Information The Windows Vista version includes about 20 new effects, a few new transitions, and support for the DVR-MS file format which Windows Media Center records television in. The HD version in Premium and Ultimate editions of Windows Vista adds support for capturing from HDV camcorders. The capture wizard will create DVR-MS type files from HDV tapes.


In this guide I am going to be using Windows Movie Maker 2.5 because it is the version I got. It is basicly the same with all the other versions of Movie Maker. They make it simple for the user to understand.


This is how it looks like when you open Movie Maker

First Step: 

First Step First thing to do when editing is to Import the video or videos that you will need to make a video. Select Import Video


Then locate were you left the video, select the video and click Import


How long is importing the video it all depends on how fast is your PC


The end result of this will show the video you selected all chopped in to a lot of segments depending on how long is the video, the duration. This way will help you to easily manage your video.


Then select the segment that you want on your video, Drag and Drop it on the Timeline at the video area.

Second Step: 

Second Step This step is to show how to Import a audio or Music to your video Select Import Audio or Music


Same process from the video. Select the audio you need an Import it.


When it is done it will show up with an icon of a music note to difference it from the video and also to help the user know witch is audio and video.


And same goes to the audio. If you want it in your video simply select and Drag and Drop in the Timeline in the Audio area.

Audio Levels: 

Audio Levels The audio levels are for selecting what audio you prefer to hear on your video, or you want to hear only the audio of the video segment or the music you imported or both. For this guide I am going to select the audio only that I imported to make it look like a music video.

Third Step: 

Third Step Once you are done with putting some videos in the timeline you may want to edit your video with some effects. This step is to show you how to implement Video effects, Video Transitions and Text

Video Effects: 

Video Effects First off to find the video effects you need to select Collections Button Then select Video Effects on the left side And there it is


Drag and Drop the video effect you like most and place that on the video segment that you want to have that effect.

Video Transitions: 

Video Transitions Select Video Transitions and see all the different types.


You place the transition you want in between the two video segments that you want that effect


Now this automatically fits and adjust. If you want to make that transition longer you simply drag the right segment over the other video. Dragging it to the left. If you want it shorter it is the opposite.


Text In Edit Movie select Make Titles or Credits


There are various selections but for this presentation I’m going to select “Title on the selected clip”. Meaning the text I am going to place it on the video segment itself.


Here you write in the text box the message you want to place on the selected segment.


Then after you can select Title animation. What this does is animate the text.


And the other thing you can do is edit the text meaning change the font, color, size and others.


Once you are done with the text you select Done, add title to movie then it will automatically send the text to the selected segment.

Final Step: 

Final Step Once you finally done with the video you make it is time to finish the job by saving it and you can show it off to your friends to other computers.


Click on Finish Movie and select Save to my computer


Put a Name for your finished project and also select the place were you want the finished video to be sent. Then select Next.


Then you can select the type of video you want it to be. An AVI file or WMA. Which ever for this presentation I am going to select High quality video (large)


Once you hit next the video will be changed to that format that you selected. This process takes a wile also depending on the duration of your video.

And you are done!: 

And you are done!


Here is a short video that I made that shows some of these steps so you can understand it better


FIN And you are done making your own video. Practice makes perfect. Keep experimenting with this until you get it.
