Movie Maker Tweaked for Windows 8


Microsoft Windows Movie Maker has been an update to include some vital enhancements. A part of Windows Essentials 2012 available for Windows 7 and Windows 8, these media editing and organizing application had recently gotten a face change when ‘Live’ was crossed off from their names.

Video Stabilization

A video stabilization button has been added that will correct for shake and wobble in videos. This is a darned admirable thing considering the more use of mobile gadgets as a camcorder. Just a look at Microsoft’s demonstration video of stabilizing a mountain biker’s head mounted camera shows how effective the feature can be.

Audio Upgrades and More

There is also a feature to outline text. Meanwhile, the default output file now is MP4 with using H.264 codec instead of WMV. The other improvements are to the audio- now you can view audio waveforms beneath the clips, mixing tools enable you to mix the narration, original video sound, and background score. You can add or record narrations and even use licensed background scores from Vimeo Music Store, Free Music Archive, and AudioMicro.

Windows Photo Gallery has also been tweaked to add an auto-collage feature that rival Google Picasa has had for a long time now. Picasa has geo-tagging maps but here you have an appreciable panorama creator.
