"Windows Movie Maker 2.6 also works on W 7 / W 8(?)."

November 17, 2013  |  By jnsturges

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

Similar to the original WMM that came bundled with Windows XP.

Cons

Often confused with Windows Live Movie Maker, which is pure junk, IMHO.

Summary

This downloadable but free App looks and feels like the Entry Level WMM 2.1 that came bundled in XP.

It is a great LEARNING TOOL for first-time users who are unfamiliar with Video Editing Apps in general. And, there are lots of Tutorial videos on YouTube, just make sure that the video's NOT using Windows LIVE Movie Maker.

Updated on Nov 17, 2013

Meant to say:

"Entry Level WMM 2.1 that came bundled in XP" with Service pack 2 and 3.

"Better than most"

July 02, 2013  |  By killgore1223

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

*download more effects
*timeline feature (kinda easy to understand)
*accepts .WMV, .AVI, ETC
*pretty cool effects (default effects)

Cons

*kinda buggy and could be slow
*pretty much just a better update as the old 2.6
*DOESN'T ACCEPT .MOV OR .MP4 D:

Summary

im a 16 year old hope to be filmmaker soon. and so far out of all the movie makers Ive used, and some even better than this movie maker...this, Windows Movie Maker 6.0 is better than most movie makers Ive used. the interface sure ya is a little clunky and some of the features are either hard to use or find. and could be a little buggy, slow, weird, ETC. but you can make your own effects if you know how! plus this has the timeline feature that if you get the hang of it you can use easy! this program also is pretty easy itself, you just have to get the hang of it. it may only seem like its just an update from the infamous Movie Maker 2.6. but this works just a little bit better. I JUST WISH THIS WOULD ACCEPT .MP4 AND .MOV! but other than that, all around this movie maker is the best you can get besides buying a movie maker, or trying one out...OR EVEN using a really good movie maker but its so confusing you end up just uninstalling it cause it gets frustrating. i give this a 4 cause you can also make it your own with the effects and the movie maker IS FREE

"Great program, outshined by Windows Live"

November 08, 2012  |  By JeremyDaw

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

It has some great transitions and effects for beginners, also has some great titles to choose from.

Cons

Unfortunately, it is outshined by Windows Live Movie Maker, Sony Vegas and all those other editors.

Summary

Overall, it's a great program, just nobody realizes it after they have played around with it's competition.

"Good, but this is not the Vista version"

November 02, 2012  |  By Pizzaguy100

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

1. Easy to create quick home movies to upload on You Tube
2. Comes free with every Windows pc. Windows 7 movie maker is bad.
3. Great basic effects such as speed up and slow motion.

Cons

1. Too basic, if you want to make professional videos, get Sony Vegas or After Effects.
2. As this is the Windows XP version, you can not publish in HD.

Summary

This is a good starter video editing software but if you want a more professional movie then get After Effects.

"Not the same movie maker"

January 24, 2012  |  By pokematic

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

It lets me have more controle over image duration than with live movie maker for 7.
It lets me look at audio and video separately.

Cons

This isn't the same version that shiped with my vista on my old computer but rather an updated version of xp
It's preset to separate longer video files into smaller segments, like 2-3 seconds each.
It won't let me load all my video files into 1 place.

Summary

It's ok. I wish that they put all the videos in one spot like they did with the actual version for vista and didn't precut my videos, but I did fix that somehow. If anyone has any idea how to get all the videos in 1 spot please let me know.

"DOES TAKE WIN FILES AND CONVERT THEM TO DVD"

December 30, 2011  |  By sethomas

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

I HAVE CONVERTED OLD VHS AND SUPER 8 FILM TO DVD. I USED WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER TO CAPTURE VIDEO. Then USED FREE MAKE VIDEO CONVERTER TO EDIT AND CONVERT TO WAV FILE. USED WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER TO ADD EFFECTS NEEDED BY DARK VIDEO,SET TITLE PAGE AND MAKE INTO MOVIE FOR WINDOWS DVD MAKER.

Cons

SOMETIME IT HARD TO REMEMBER WHAT FILE TYPE YOU ARE WORKING WITH. EACH PROCESS REQUIRES A DIFFERENT FILE TYPE TO EDIT AND CONVERT.
ALSO DON'T MOVE ANY FILES FROM ONE FILE TO ANOTHER WINDOW MEDIA MAKER ONLY REMEMBERS THE ORIGINAL LOCATION OF FILES.

Summary

TOOK SOME TIME BUT WAS ABLE TO MAKE DVD'S OF ALL MY OLD ANALOG FILM WITH SOME NEAT EFFECTS. Some OF THE FILM WAS VERY OLD AND DARK. WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER WAS ABLE TO BRIGHTEN THE FILM SO IT COULD BE VIEWED USING THE EFFECTS OPTIONS. WORKED GREAT

"As far as Free Video editors This is the best."

December 03, 2011  |  By HgGundamReviews

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

This software unlike it's newer "Live" version is a full software package not a App. It runs well even on Windows 7 and allows you to do a great number of editing tricks. Preinstalled Transitions and Effects also allow for a great many options. Also allows for Title overlays on imported videos as well as creation of scrolling Credits.

Cons

The only real cons I can find are it will only save movies 720X480 resolution (high end settings) And that it only allows you to import video in AVI, MPG, WMA formats. If your video is in another format you need to convert the video to one of those formats. It also seems to have issues with MJPG formatted videos even after conversion. Also it does not contain a Chroma Key to allow green screen composites.

Summary

Over all This is the BEST FREE video editor I have found to date. And in many ways it's superior to many of the editors you have to pay for. All in all this is the best option for anyone wanting to make videos quickly with little difficulty and great final results.

"Expected more."

October 29, 2011  |  By 680international

 |  Version: Windows Movie Maker (Windows Vista) 2.6.4037

Pros

I am dissapointed.

Cons

I expected more.

Summary

It does the job but sometimes when I ex out of it, it says it is still running which is very frustrating. I try to reboot and it still says it when I try to open it. I expect more from Windows. I am dissapointed in this program. I do not reccomend it. I had to put my videos I made on a flash drive to transfer them to another computer. You might be better off getting an off-brand movie maker.
