Skill Level Beginner
Well, congratulations! You've completed Windows Live Movie Maker Essential Training. You should now be feeling comfortable enough with the many powerful, yet easy to use features and functions of Movie Maker to start creating your own cinematic masterpieces. Movie Maker won't take long to master, so when you're ready to take your movie making skills to the next level, you might consider upgrading to a more powerful movie-making program, and there are many of them out there. Adobe Premiere Elements offers consumers powerful automated movie-editing tools with professional quality effects, quick and easy sharing options, and more.
Adobe Premiere Pro has even more powerful functionality to help you accelerate production, from script writing to editing, encoding, and final delivery. Now both of these programs are available for the Windows PC or the Macintosh computer, and you'll find plenty of training on each in the lynda.com library. Now if you prefer to do your video editing on a Mac, you might consider iMovie, which is part of the iWorks suite of applications. Or for more professional tools and options, you can take it to the next level with Final Cut Pro, for even more creative options and technical control. And yes, you'll find training at lynda.com for these as well.
For the Windows PC, Sony has a powerful award-winning video editing program called Vegas. And once again, you'll find training for this software application at lynda.com. This is David Rivers, saying thanks for watching and best of luck as you move forward, creating your own cinematic masterpieces.
