Why would they remove features from previous versions
"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.
Thanks for the info on th evideo questions
Thanks for the information.
May you and family have a superlative day,
You can find video editing software downloads from CNET...
http://download.cnet.com/windows/video-editing-software/. There are many to choose from, so I suggest doing some research on the ones with the most downloads (and highest ratings), make sure they are supported by your system, and then choose which is right for you.
Windows Live Movie Maker, thanks and solution!
Thanks for the reply.
For anyone that is frustrated to learn the Windows Live Movie Maker took out the options to create a photo of any portion of the video and forward/reverse by frame to better edit, there is a nice solution- AVS Video Editor 4.
Thanks and everyone have a great week,
Your Welcome, glad you found a solution that works for you!
Does the Vista version work with Windows 7?
The movie maker software was a major lose in Windows 7 along with Windows Mail I'm not sure the addition of the taskbar features were worth those two loses. Seem like a two for one swoop to me with the customer getting shorted. It's simple really, I think most customer would agree, we would expect more, not less, from a new OS.
Hi Dango 517:
There was some postings on the internet that there would be a way of having Vista versions be compatible with Windows 7 with some downloads but not in all cases.
I hope you are able to find the best options. For basic editing the old Windows Movie Maker did nicely.
Enjoy the weekend,
Pics from Movie maker
On my Windows live Movie maker which is windows 7 Pre, I have the play button and frame forward and reverse under the main video window. By pausing the video and then clicking the forward or reverse button the video advances one frame at a time, and the marker in the time line also moves to correspond. The key board keys J for back frame, L for advance frame and K for pause also work.
When I want a photo from the video I first expand the video display size by sliding the line between video and thumbs to the right then going to full screen. I then use the windows quick tool called the Snipping tool and frame any or all of the paused frame. Then save to desktop and bingo.
