How to use Windows Movie Maker to cut, paste, edit, add effects to videos - video tutorial

Hi friends, tutorial today will learn together how we can do a slideshow of pictures, how can we put effects on pictures or videos, how can edit or crop the videos, how can we put transition effects (transition from one clip to another is called transition effect or transition effects) or how we can get the sound of a video clip and how we can replace our own audio clip .. When it comes to video editing are a lot of software that do this but many of these are commercial software and not so easy to use! In today's tutorial I chose to show you how to use Windows Movie Maker software that comes pre-installed on the Professional versions of Windows XP and Windows XP Home Edition. Is a software that knows how to juggle quite well with audio, video, photos, effects. All that remains to do is to have new imaginative enough we can achieve a nice clip.
Formats supported by Windows Movie Maker are:

Video files: .asf, .avi, .wmv, .MPEG1, .mpeg, .mpg, .m1v, .mp2
Audio: .wav, .snd, .au, .aif, .aifc, .aiff, .mp3
Windows Media files: .asf, .wm, .wma, .wmv
Image files (pictures): .bmp, .jpg, .jpeg, .jpe, .jfif, .gif

You can save video files, which are final: .wmv, .wma, .avi

It is a soft ideal if you want to make a slideshow with pictures and miniclipuri made vacation if you want to trim the beginning or end of a video that did not like how it came out, you can convert a video or filming a video / film old, you can give them an effect of the films in the years 80
All this tutorial we will learn together today. I say that not much point to a long text so I invite you to follow along video tutorial and if you want a tutorial for Windows Movie Maker in Windows Vista or 7 not hesitate to ask for it in the comments box of this tutorial!
Remember, if you have suggestions, complaints or additions do not hesitate to write in the comments box, de-also if you met the comments box a user has a problem and you can help him, do not hesitate to do it, the only way we can do this place better, see the comments box!
Enjoy !

    Good tutorial I have Windows XP Professional and I have this program, but I've downloaded from the net ..

    • It means that you have a genuine Windows even so, is there any built-in light that the "net".
      There's no problem, good that you downloaded.
      Now you say something not related to the tutorial topic. Try not to take on the "net" Windows kinds of sites, it is preferable to make your get original one, those "light" could contain something other than software "bundle", make sure you install .
      In the case of Windows 7 no longer have to stress, there are "windows 7 to download the trial version," we also have a tutorial, you can use it on that long and hard, with the tutorial to "rearm" made Adrian.

  2. very cool tutorial!

  3. Very good tutorial Adrian, now I've seen and I can do as a tutorial Sony Vegas, you just warmed this Tutorial Windows Movie Maker.

    • Yes, thanks, I'll do with Sony Vegas if people will ask this. For those who want to step into the world or rather the mysteries of video editing I would say this is a good start and from here can learn many basics that are key in professional video editing. If those who want to engage in video editing I do not know what a timeline, transition effect, audio split, merge video, overlay and other terms can not grab Sony Vegas.

  5. Welcome.
    Christ as a Windows you mention it .. Well first 7
    I downloaded it from the Microsoft Windows 7 enterpise but ... cylinder comes the problem
    after I installed it already expired 1 occur, 2 I put ream .. gave
    10 days still functioning .... 3 when I tried to activate the 90 days
    cika version has expired and can not activate the 10 days

    Windows moves as if I awful installed on the PC hard
    newly installed and Windows erea
    I know you're right and you can not swallow dp windowsurile pirated net
    but frankly ... I have a pc 2 years
    msi motherboard .. bla bla .... chipeset level with Medusa
    a gb ram gb hdd odd 160 who knows what kind of pc
    "Perforamt" adika as it is to play crysis no problem I can get in game settings chimba game when it Borba to give "new game" to play adika
    FPS game 0 1 frames per second ie the 5 seconds adika game jocu miss the pictures =))
    but that's not the problem ...

    The 2 years I took windowsuri net dp pirated ... frankly not good very good move ....
    and another thing ..
    after I got windows 7 net dp free version from miscrosoft ....
    and saw that it sprouts ...
    I downloaded Windows 7 dp pirate bay ... containing all versions of Home Premium to Ultimate ...
    To be even more honest works perfectly ... too bad it's in Portuguese ... but I can change the language in settings ... this is not a big problem ...
    I would honestly give 10 eyes closed windows "pirated" and not because it's free!
    and the one from microsoft ... a 4,5 hair pulled ..
    another thing .. ACM to shoulder almost all the tutorials I made for you ... that's just like you to know that I know how to activate the 90 tyel days but nothing cika is expired (I mean enterpise from Microsoft)

    I just want to ask that could damage a pirated Windows system: D?

    for example http://www.youtube.com
    I wish you all the best luck ...

      Me and my partner have all explained over time is not good to have a Windows pirate!
      1. May contain undetectable servers easily realized that the one who can intercept or connect to your PC without even feeling it
      2. You can make very simple and easy your PC into a zombie
      3. most pirated windowsurilor have drivers included (often unnecessary for the system and your PC configuration ... here goes and you keep getting error when installing certain software)
      4. have included software that maybe you do not need
      5. may contain keyloggers or backdate which can be easily intercepted and "listening"
      6. many services have stopped the nonsense that happens to need them very often. That's why we all cry the comments that you made in our tutorials as you too will not come out.
      7. are configured and customized in a manner that he may please him who made and often you ... can not have the same taste with his

      Now let's think a little obvious, do you really think that someone has so much time to customize a Windows to work so he can connect to "unsecured" to your offer it to you for free? Could it be that it's a concern? I say think again before you install a Windows pirate and search logic that someone would make a windows and would provide free on the net. you do it yourself? I'll give you money on a Windows then put it on the net for free download? And if they "pirates" still do that is really the point? lest that of a mask in the "free"? After that the asi lest he job inter? How? Simple ... offers you a windows ready "unsecured" for free, you get it, install it, and he got what he wanted!! make servers and boot your back, steal your data, accounts, email addresses and other important data that would benefit. But back to the subject of the tutorial. these things have been said here jdemii times so it makes sense to debate the subject, at least not in this tutorial. subject of this tutorial is quite another!

    Good tutorial a question of can mam looked think or are sure all the tutorials on site Very good all but I found a tutorial on a program that can make flash banners intro etc but flash you can do one or is sami indicate une

  11. Bulgac said

    Thank you very much, I needed that.
    I knew about this movie maker, but not in too much settings.

  12. egasus08 said

    It is a very simple software. I've used it before. From what I hear (to be honest I have not used yet), Sony Vegas is a really good, compared to Movie Maker. Movie Maker is made for beginners who want to make a video not too professional, but faster, compared to sony vegas is a more complex software.
    A friend told me that he tested both and found they say a problem sony vegas: cica out file size much bigger than movie maker and file size is an issue and you do catch. Especially if you capture screen-15 20 more minutes.
    What must to do when file size is so big? (Preferably without great loss of quality)

  13. pintea said

    very good, but he tired mam i want to try something else, can make tutorialu with Sony Vegas or something, thanks, good ...

  14. I forgot to mention: the FileList account you need if you want to download ... on thepiratebay can without, but there I found only Windows Vista 7 and SP1 (good and SP1, but you have made many updates).

  15. stefbabanu said

    I answer the question

  16. Good tutorial .. however I have a question .. can get something voices dintr'o song and I just stay negative?

    • This can only be done in a studio. The software will not be able to make a negative than that sounds pathetic.

  17. Very cool, thanks, and I look forward to a tutorial in Windows Movie Maker 7

  18. There are good video editing software like Edius Neo (I use, but there are other more professionally, it has a very good support for HD) and is shi Pinnacle Studio (v.14 knows how to work with video 3D) The problem with this software is that that cost money but it is also their trial versions.

So I run a windows received from a neighbor, no code or number, but stay with Automatic Update and Microsoft says it's open to original and updates hard.
