Notes

Please note: Movie Maker 2.6 is for Windows Vista users whose computer cannot run the Vista version of Movie Maker.

To test if your computer can run the Vista version of Movie Maker:

If Movie Maker launches, you should not download version 2.6.

Pros
  • Very easy to use

I wish you could do other things in WMM like cropping the video, and more and better effects and better captions, and transitions.. I would say that it would only be good for simple videos, not professional videos, like I'm still TRYING to do with Windows Live Movie Maker, and I still can't do it, so I really need a better editing software like, well, I can't decide but with my channel on YouTube, I can't do with this... I really need Microsoft to get even a new editing software with a better result of videos, something that the video will look like Adobe Premiere Elements 8 AT LEAST...

Pros
  • Simple editing, not complex, easy to use
Cons
  • Bad effects, don't like captions and transitions, had to move on the Live MM, and I still can't do it, need Microsoft to get even a new editing software with a better result of videos, something that the video will look like Adobe Premiere Elements...
