A friend recently bought a new all in one with Win 7 after their XP PC died. In XP they used Windows Movie Maker a lot and really does not like live movie maker and wants to find a different app that's more like XPs Windows Movie Maker, any suggestions?

This friends technical ability is very very low, so it will need to be a lot like using WMM. I don't do movie editing, so I can't give them any advice.

Thanks

Have them download Windows Live Essentials from Microsoft, and it will come with Windows Live Movie Maker.

Thanks for the quick response, cryptodan. I believe I had already said that they didn't like Live Movie Maker. They want third party software that's similar to XPs Windows Movie Maker.

I doubt that that kind of software exists as WMM was free. Whats the issues with Windows Live Movie Maker?

CNET would be the best place to look for freeware.

If you want really good editing options, you would have to purchase a program from either Nero or Roxio which is designed for making and editing home made movies.

Hello AWG,


Just something to try.

I know someone the same way with windows movie maker.
He would not use Windows Live Movie maker, as he says "its just not the same".


What we have found is if you download the

Windows Movie Maker v. 6.2 for VISTA
it actually instails and runs good on Windows 7

Give it a try and let me know how it goes :)

AWG, I understand your friend's pain.  I went from Vista to 7 and I have WLMM myself.  I recommend downloading Windows Movie Maker 2.6, it's the XP version I do believe.    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=34

 

 

Also, If your friend would like to check out WMM 6.0 (the vista version): http://movies.blainesville.com/2010/05/installing-windows-movie-maker-60-on.html

 

 

I do hope this helps :)

 

xoxo, Jen

This link is for a free movie maker software, the pro "paid" version is used by many movie producers.

Hope this helps!
