Windows Movie Maker comes pre-installed on most windows operating systems so there's no need to go out and buy video editing software when you probably already have it on your computer. You can look under your “Start" menu bottom in your bottom tray and navigating to “Programs" and then Windows Movie Maker.
Once you have the program open you don't even need to have an actual video clip to make videos. Although it does have this option to either hook up your video camera directly to Windows Movie Maker or to simply use the “import video" feature to import a video clip that you may already have on your computer or flash drive.
In either case all you have to do is use the “import video", “import pictures", or the “import audio or music" button links to get started.
Once you import your desired media that you want to appear in your video into the staging area, all you have to do is click on the media and drag and drop each item one at a time into the time line. You can organize the order of which media you want to appear in your video by dragging them around.
Under “edit movie" you can also drag and drop or insert some very professional transitions, titles, text overlays, and credit. It is really that simple.
You can even see exactly what your video will look like when you play it back in the video viewer built into the program.
You do not need expensive equipment to make videos. I've seen some astounding high quality videos produced with Windows Movie Maker that you would of never thought could be done with free video editing software.
When your done creating your videos you can even upload them to video sharing sites like Youtube to share your videos with the world for fun or to get traffic back to your website.
