"Why would they remove features from previous versions"
The answers vary from it didn't work in the new version or OS to a license that expired. Many are unaware that Microsoft licenses bits and pieces of apps so when those expire or they can't agree with the author, that vanishes.
You find that editing video ranges from simple snipping the ends off to full blown special effects. To wit I propose that you can't ask for video editing suggestions without a long shopping list and even then no one may want to do your research at that point. I use simple tools like Virtual Dub and about photo's of a frame, that's supported with a tap of the printscreen so that's what I use. And yes I am shortchanging you on why printscreen may not work and how to deal with that.
Reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_editing_software I see you have your research to do.
Hi CNET Folks:
Hope the weekend is going well.
Two questions please. The first regards Windows Live Movie Maker for Windows 7. Why would they remove features from previous versions (when called Windows Movie Maker) such as the ability to take a photo of any part of the video you are editing? Since the program had previously been written why not keep the same options but make it compatible for all operating systems?
The second one please. Any recommendations of free video editing programs for Windows 7 that enable you to take a photo of any parts of the video you are editing?
Thank you as always for your help and enjoy the day,
