Microsoft Movie Maker vs ??
I may not have this posted in the appropriate spot, but here goes. I currently us Movie Maker and have good luck with it, not excellent, especially when rendering a saving. I under stand it is not included in Windows 7 which eventually we will be moving to.
I also use Media Shout 4 with two screens. Does anyone have a suggestion for a different movie maker program that they recommend, easy to self teach and can save files to formats for MS4? I will use songs in the back ground, and occassionally record narrations. Definately will want to be able to burn a DVD and play through DVD player also.
Thanks in advance, Dorothy
Most of the professional editing programs also have cheaper cut down versions, which will be a lot better than movie maker, but more suited to your level of experience also.
Actually Windows Live Movie Maker can be downloaded and used in Windows 7.
I use 3 of the ones mentioned above. They are all pretty good.
Movie Maker is pretty tedious to use in comparison to just about anything else. Once you get the hang of other software, you'll wonder why you waited to make the change. Zactommo has a pretty good list and there is a wealth of online free tutorials for most, if not all, of them.
If you are serious about learning some really nice editing software and have the need for increasing your production capabilities, get a Mac and Final Cut Pro. If don't need/want anything too involved, select something from the aforementioned list.
Hope this helps,
Zactommo list is a good one as you'll get tons of arguements about which one is the "best". Ultimately, you make a decision and then invest time in learning how it works. Play and experiment is the important part. Certain software/operating systems are more common than others, but that does make it a definitive choice. It's your comfort level, workflow, and output that matters, not the system or software it is created on.
I personally use Adobe CS5 line of products on Windows 7 operating environment.
And if Windows Movie Maker is almost what you need, but you need just a bit more, there is alway Adobe Premier Elements, which is a lot more affordable.
