Windows Live Movie Maker
Full user review
"Vista was way better"
Can rotate video for when someone takes video in portrait mode on a digital camera.
Title editing a little easier to access.
Haven't had much trouble with it crashing like older movie makers.
No timeline. I'm a simple guy, with simple needs from a video editing software. I don't need to do all that I can with adobe premier pro or other proffessional software, but I need a timeline with a section for media to be used at a leter time, like with the vista version. Sure, this would work for my aunt who just makes slideshows, but I make low budget online videos, where I need a time-line.
Trimming, increadibly hard. Sure trimming in vista wasn't perfect, but this is just horrible.
I can't really edit the audio like I could with vista, and in order for an audio file to play, I need a video, still immage, or title to be over it.
No more narating timelines. How am I supposed to voice my stop motion videos?
This should be called "windows live slideshow maker," because anyone who wants to actually make a video will be unable to. I tried getting the vista version of movie maker, but it is definately not the vista movie maker I'm used to. It's more like the xp version of movie maker, and then it doesn't want to work either. I have 7 so I feel like I'm tied with no decent free available video editing software.
