Windows 10 Does Not Support Windows Movie Maker

Hi folks. I know it has been a while. I'm working on other projects that are not video related. Most of the consumer video world has switch to mobile. What I had to offer was no longer relevant for contemporary smartphone video production. 

That being said, a lot of folks still use some form of Windows Movie Maker. If you are upgrading from Windows 7 or 8.1 and have an existing copy of Movie Maker there shouldn't be any problems. But there could be and since Microsoft doesn't support Movie Maker 12 for Windows 10 you have to figure out what is wrong and how to make it right.

If you are doing a clean install of Windows 10 and you don't have Movie Maker 12 the bad news is that Windows 10 doesn't support it. The good news is that you can still get it from Microsoft's web site; it is part of Windows essentials.

But if there is a problem you are on your own when it comes to making it work.

You do have options:
  • Adobe Premier Essentials
  • Corel VideoStudio
  • Serif Movie Plus
  • Sony Movie Studio
Yes, you will have to pay for it. I know that can be a problem for some folks. The only other free option I know about it GoPro Studio; it is quirky and designed for that line of cameras but that rascal saved my butt a few times.

Otherwise, you could check out DIY Video Editor blog or Mobile Video DIY for mobile video tips and resources.

I'll keep an eye out for items of interest but for now,

Vlog on...
