This tutorial is designed as a basic introduction to Microsoft's digital video editing program, Windows Movie Maker 2 (MM2). The goal of this tutorial is to provide students in the iSchool Lab, and at other locations, with a guide for completing projects in MM2.

This tutorial will:

  • Provide you with a general overview of MM2 functions, settings, and tools.
  • Show you how to capture or import video, pictures, audio or music into MM2.
  • Show you how to edit a movie, add effects/transitions, title/credits, and narration.
  • Show you how and in what formats to save your movie.

In order to provide a sample of what can be produced using basic digital video editing software, staff in the iSchool Lab filmed a short promotional movie and then edited the project using MM2 for PCs and iMovie for Macs. To view the movies, either select the image of Chet (below) or select Movies on the navigation bar. The examples used in this tutorial will be taken from this project.
