Effects and criticism
When importing footage into the program, a user can either choose to Capture Video (from camera, scanner or other device) or Import into Collections to import existing video files into the user's collections.
When importing from a DV tape, if the "Make Clips on Completion" option is selected , Windows Movie Maker automatically flags the commencement of each scene.
That is, at each point where the "Record" button was pressed, a new "clip" is generated, although the actual recording on the hard drive is still one continuous file.
After capture, any clip can be dragged and dropped. Clips can be duplicated or split. Right-clicking any clip brings up the range of editing options. An Auto Movie feature offers predefined editing styles (titles, effects and transitions) for quickly creating movies.
Windows Movie Maker can also be used to edit and publish audio tracks. If no video or image is present, then it is possible to simply export the sound clips as a .wma file
The Windows Vista version includes a different set of transitions, effects and title/credits animations while dropping a few older ones. There are in all 49 effects and 63 transitions
They are applied by using a drag and drop interface from the effects or transitions folders. Titles and credits can be added as stand alone titles or overlaying them on the clip by adding them onto the selected clip
