Windows Movie Maker is still one of the best free video editing programs you can download. It's easy to combine and edit your own video clips to create professional-looking movies. Cut, edit, or set your digital films to music, and put your own stamp on your films with the transitions and effects available at your fingertips. 

Windows Movie Maker can export your films in HD and upload them to YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook with a single click.

If you need a soundtrack for your video, Windows Movie Maker lets you search the AudioMicro portal or the Free Music Archive to find the perfect background music. All the tracks here are free to use without copyright restrictions, so you don't need to worry about infringing on anyone's intellectual property rights.

Windows Movie Maker also includes a new image stabilizer, which is only available for Windows 8 and 10, as well as distortion correction to ensure your video clips are as sharp and crisp as possible.


Why you need Windows Movie Maker

Windows Move Maker's drag-and-drop interface makes importing video clips, still photos and audio files simplicity itself. You can also record footage directly from a webcam, record narration and take screen grabs to incorporate into your project without any additional software.

Videos can be stabilized or rotated with a single click in Windows Movie Maker, and connected using various transitions and wipes. Trimming videos is a simple matter of pausing the video and pressing I to set the start point, or O to set the end point.

Audio and video can be edited independently and unlike many video editors, Windows Movie Maker doesn't require you to split the file into two channels then ensure they sync. Instead, it handles the task automatically, ensuring music and narration play in time with your clips and stills.

Windows Movie Maker's built-in export tools let you publish your finished video directly to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo or Flickr. There are also export presets for a wide range of playback devices and other sites, including DailyMotion and Blip.TV.


Latest updates

The latest version of Windows Movie Maker enables you to find appropriate music for your creation using the Vimeo video service. You can also use the AudioMicro music archives to find appropriate music that's free to use without infringing on IP rights.

You can also select music from your PC if you prefer.

The new Windows Movie Maker also offers autoamtic image stabilization to ensure your shots look crisp, even if your camera was a little unsteady. There are several intensity levels to choose from.

Windows Movie Maker is part of the Windows Essentials toolkit. The installer should pick up the language settings from your PC, but if not, type langselector into the search bar once he program is installed, run the command and select the right language from the drop-down list.
