Hi, I'll be continuing to share my experience with the Windows Live essential Wave 4 that can be download here. Today's post is about Movie Make since it has just received the Pcmag.com Editors' Choice Award.

For those of you that don't yet know Movie Maker, it is the best free tool out-there that enables you to create great eye catching and fun videos in just a few clicks. It still uses the same user interface where you drag and drop do pictures and video on the right pan, and then just select the ones want to get a great video with music.

But there is plenty of new stuff too:

  • You can create a video directly from your webcam.
  • The tab Visual Effect allows you to make cool effect to your video and to your pictures
  • Many new animations have been added to make nice transitions.
  • It is now possible to upload videos directly to Facebook and to SkyDrive.

Go on just give it a try. The installation takes only 5 minutes, creating your video 5 more, and publishing only 2. So in less than 15 minutes you'll be able to create and share your first video.
