Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
If you own a computer that runs Windows Me, you own Windows Movie Maker -- and you have all the software you need to make spiffy digital movies for your friends, family, and anyone else who'll tolerate them. Of course, to actually use Windows Movie Maker, you've got a lot to learn -- and here's the book to learn it from.

Keith Underdahl walks you through getting your computer ready to run Windows Movie Maker (you thought it already was, silly you) -- and getting your "talent" ready to be captured on video (don't let 'em wear stripes). You'll learn how to import video into your computer (if you have a swanky new digital camcorder, super, but you can use output from one of those $50 USB webcams that fit on top of your monitor, and there's always the trusty 'ol Web for downloadable source material.)

You'll walk step-by-step through editing your source material, working with the Storyboard and Timeline, and the simple transitions Windows Movie Maker provides. (Sorry, no wipes here: It's straight cuts or crossfades, period.) Underdahl shows how to organize your video clip library, add titles and an audio track, create an online screening room where folks can watch your movies online, even record your movies to VHS or CD-ROM. There's also a chapter full of handy tips from a guest professional: a videographer with credits ranging from Starship Troopers to Austin Powers. (Bill Camarda)

Bill Camarda is a consultant and writer with nearly 20 years' experience in helping technology companies deploy and market advanced software, computing, and networking products and services. His 15 books include Special Edition Using Word 2000 and Upgrading & Fixing Networks For Dummies®, Second Edition.
