Simple tools with a recognizable interface
Movie Maker & Video Editor : Slideshow Maker Pro allows you to edit your home movies with a series of simple tools and a frame-by-frame timeline running along the bottom. This program is not meant for high-resolution movies or professional movie because it doesn't have the functions or power to generate good productions. This tool is for amateurs and not semi-professional movie editors. Oddly enough, it may have been viewed as a passable slideshow maker when it was released, but these days its slideshow functionalities are mostly obsolete; especially with programs such as PowerPoint competing with it. If you are looking for a piece of software to help you write on your videos because you cannot do it on YouTube (since YouTube disabled that feature), then this program will allow you to, but most of the text graphics look very old-fashioned, (like 1996 website graphics).
Learn how to edit with this tool
Movie Maker & Video Editor : Slideshow Maker Pro isn't a teaching tool, but its use of a frame timeline at the bottom of the screen may help newbies understand how frame-by-frame editing works. It is a step up from a GIF animator when it comes to frame editing. Despite the fact that cutting is time-consuming, the fact that previews are pre-loaded means you can cut and check right away before continuing or pressing undo. Such a tool will help an amateur learn more efficiently, especially since an amateur can see result right away without the lag of having to wait for sections of movie to render before previewing.
