good work. I learned a few things I didn't know even though I've used Movie Maker many times!

The only problem I have with Windows Live Movie Maker is the noticeable quality loss when the final movie has been published. Tried both the Vimeo setting and the full HD settings (similar settings to the camera raw file); still the video doesn't look as sharp as that of the original file.

I use movie maker because my laptop can't run big softwares like premiere however I have made quite a few reasonable movies! I hope to start making better movies soon and movie maker does restrict me. I really need to get some money to buy a new laptop or lens.

I truly enjoyed this training. I will deferentially us Video movie maker. This is the best explanation and presentation.
