Windows Live Movie Maker is a great tool designed by Microsoft that aims to help amateur users or even more advanced persons to create various types of movies using personal files and different templates. The tool is offered for free and it can be downloaded as an extension for the operating system. Lately, the app has become part of the Windows Live Essential bundle installer, but users that do not need the various applications that are featured in the package can only choose to install the movie maker along with the basic dependencies that allow it to run properly.
Even if the tool lacks certain advanced features that users might enjoy, the basic options should still be enough to create standard videos that can be intended for personal use or even in terms of presentations. Videos and images can be easily added into the tool by dragging and dropping them onto the interface, and from there on they can be added onto the timeline in order to be actually part of a future movie. The timeline is located in the lower area of the screen and users can zoom in and out in order to fine tune the details that they want to.
Social media is now an important part of the tool and the developers have not neglected the advantages that are offered by these features. With a small plugin, a user can easily upload a created video to either YouTube or Facebook, or he can send it through an email, if the size is suited for this task. Furthermore, videos can be now created using high definition standards and Full HD is a good option that works flawlessly. However, a larger resource usage will be noticed when creating such a video, but the result will definitely be admired by viewers.
