Movie Maker for Windows 10

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 (dumbed-down) and stripped of features (Movie Moments must be a terrible joke). Or AviSynth -based GUI's which require too much time to learn for many people, especially for more complicated effects. Movie Maker was a great balance of features and ease of use. It's a shame it has not been updated in years.

A good video editor that can run on low spec PC's.


Classic Movie Maker

Windows Movie Maker was included in Windows XP. But Windows 7 lacks it for some reason and we're forced in download Windows LIVE Movie Maker which is completely different and worse IMO. Luckily, it's still possible to download the classic Movie Maker: Download from Microsoft Download Center

(It says it's for Vista, but it also works on newer Windows.)


Easy to use movie maker

The windows movie maker is good for small and simple home videos.. It is easy to use and have some nice basic features, but it can only export to Windows Media Video (wmv-files) which is quite annoying.

If anyone wants free full pledge video editing suite for Windows do not go any further. Windows Movie Maker is I think the only available, useable free non-linear video editing program for Windows. Further most, those having Windows XP will surely be blessed with this piece of freebee .

This application is not Free Software. It is not even open source software and it is not gratis, because you have to buy a Windows license.
