The folks over at Windows Live enthusiast LiveSide web site managed to get a hold of some of the major improvements that are coming in the next update to the new Windows Live Movie Maker first introduced with this years release of Windows Live Essentials. Persons have complained about the lack in functionality and some favorites missing from its predecessor Windows Movie Maker 6. The Windows Live Movie Maker Team seem to have listened and I am seeing some lovely engineering take place:
Enhanced Live Movie Maker with more visual effects.
- “AutoMovie” – which will automatically “add titles, credits, transitions, and effects, and fits it all together for you.
- Contextual Video and Music Tabs.
- Dozens of new animations, transitions and visual effects will also be available.
- Direct upload to YouTube instead, built-in right out-of-the-box.
New AutoMovie for creating quick movies on the fly
There is still no timeline, but the Live Movie Maker folks are said to be working on something like it. I’m interested to see how this will substitute such a reliable feature. But I am so far impressed with what I am seeing in these early screenshots. Can’t wait to try it out!
