How Can You Use It?

Whether you’re an amateur interested in family videos or a future professional getting your first taste of film editing, Windows Movie Maker has been an essential video editing program. Coming free with most versions of Windows, it has allowed millions to do some basic editing of video. The useful reign of Movie Maker ended as of the beginning of January 2017, when the program was discontinued. However, its replacement, Windows Story Remix, is a vast improvement.

What is Windows Story Remix?

While Movie Maker was an excellent program for basic video editing needs, it had a number of failings that Story Remix has fixed. Unlike Movie Maker, for instance, Story Remix is available on all your platforms. As a cloud- based program, you can do your editing on your tablet, your phone, or your computer, or all three, depending on which is most convenient at the time.

Story Remix also has far more advanced editing abilities. You can now import 3D models into your movies. Similar to Snapchat, you can use these options to follow people around in your videos. You also have the ability to add soundtracks to your videos using Microsoft’s Groove service. While the program is still meant for only basic editing, it is an excellent introduction to the process with far more features than its predecessor.
