Overview

You've seen your friends' camcorder-shot, digitally edited home movies-and you're pretty sure you can do better! However, that doesn't mean you want to spend days (or even weeks) learning everything there is to know about the free video editing software at the heart of your Windows XP OS. You learn by doing-and this guide delivers. In these pages, veteran author Jan Ozer gets right to the point, using simple project-based instruction and big, colorful screen shots to guide you through the process of editing your very first video project with Movie Maker. By focusing on a single goal (making that first movie) rather than exploring every option and feature, Jan demonstrates the quickest, easiest, smartest route to cinematic success. Each short lesson builds on the last as you learn how to create transitions, titles, wipes, dissolves, freeze frames, and more in the process of editing your video into a finished film that you can then post on the Web or copy to CD or DVD.

This book is great. It teaches you exactly what you want - nothing more & nothing less. I was able to finish studying this book in 5 days but if you really want you can finish it off in 2 or 3 days. After all, it only has 134 pages and most of it are illustrations. I got exactly what I wanted from this book. I don't think this book misses anything. It explains in good detail everything you need to make your movie - video, audio, images, equipment, everything. However, if you need to know more, this author has a more advanced book on the same subject - Movie Maker 2 for Windows. I will not buy the advanced book because I think this book covered everything.
