Microsoft offers a number of “creative extras” for use with Windows Movie Maker. At the beginning and the end of our iSchool Lab movie, we inserted countdown and end windows that are available by downloading (for free) Windows Movie Maker 2 Creative Fun Pack. Although Windows Movie Maker 2 does not include what is called the ‘Ken Burns Effect” in Macintosh’s iMovie, you can also download (for free) Photo Story 3 for Windows. With this simplified program, photographs can be manipulated using panning and zooming effects, which can then be saved as Windows Media Video (wmv) files and imported as video into Windows Movie Maker. We used Photo Story 3 to create the stills montage at the end of our lab movie.
