Windows Movie Maker makes home movies amazingly fun. With Movie Maker, you can create, edit, and share your home movies right on your computer. Build your movie with a few simple drag-and-drops. Delete bad shots and include only the best scenes. Then share your movie via the Web, e-mail, or CD. Using third-party software you can even take movies youve made and turn them into DVDs. You can also save your movie back to the video tape in your camera to play back on a TV or on the camera itself.

Had some issues compiling gameplay videos from multiple different encodecs / formats, but windows movie maker handled it just fine. Granted, it took significantly longer though Tried using FFMPEG...

See why people like Windows Movie Maker 😍

I wish Microsoft would continue development of Movie Maker for Windows 10 and beyond. There are a serious lack of quality, easy-to-use video editing alternatives, most are super simplified...
