hmm why did the developers of windows movie maker strip down this new one sooo much? i know its probably for useability or something but if im honest it doesnt really make any sense at all. Seems like the idea of “editing” videos has sort of been thrown out the window with the scrapping of the timeline. I’m sure its much easier for people who just want to make videos complimations and are happy to just stick them together but im not a fan at all, which is why im happy to say yey for the fact it still exists here, thank you Sarah Perez for your post that lead me there!
Seems to me the Windows movie maker live version should have a “easy” and “advanced” view, so that you can effectively switch between the two versions, the 2.6 version i put ^ up there seems snazzy enough, just make the top bit light blue and it will fit with the new theme and keep both sides happy.
I do wish the little video player it has played it in good quality, i know this is probably to do with the fact that editing at high quality/res would probably result in you feeling like a tortoise painting the mona lisa but surely some computers can handly a bit higher res these days. What would be great is if they could put a little quality shifter bar in the settings so you could adjust it for higher/lower end computers. What would also be great is if you could have a sneak peak renderer, that renders a small section of your video, with a quality shifter so you can have a sneak peak of what it will look like in different rendered out qualities, so you dont have to wait for the whole video to render out before you know if you picked the right settings for it.
Knowing Microsoft products theres a good chance all the functionality i want is actually in there, just not easy to find…..
