  • Lighting is key to getting a good quality imageOne of the key differences between an expensive camera and a inexpensive one is their ability to adjust and take in light its all in the lens

  • TO make your videos look more professional you could pay someone to produce the motion graphicsThis also will give you project a consisting look and feel Titles and credits. You might want to add a title at the beginning of your movie that tells people a little bit about your movie, such as when, where, and what happened. And you can add credits at the end of your movie to tell the world who created and starred in it (just like you see in movie theaters and on DVDs). For more information about adding titles and credits to your movie, see Add movie titles and credits.Transitions. To make your movie look nice when one video or picture ends and another begins to play, add transitions between pictures, videos, and titles on the storyboard. There are more than sixty different transitions in Windows Movie Maker to choose from, so play around and use the transitions that look nice to you.Effects. Finally, you might want to add some special effects to videos and pictures on the storyboard that’ll give your movie the appearance you want. For example, add one of the Film Age effects make it look like an old-time movie. For more information about using transitions and effects in Windows Movie Maker, see Add transitions and effects to pictures and video.
