Topic: Video Maker
Movie Maker is software that allows you to create and edit videos. This
program is manufactured by Microsoft Windows and is available for
free. Movie Maker is non-linear editing software, which means that the
original file that was placed on your hard drive will not be modified in
any way. Movie Maker creates its own distinct video file while you are
editing, so that if you want, you can create several different movies
using the same footage. Various features of Movie Maker include time
line narration, effects, audio track, transitions, titles and credits.
