About the Product

Windows® Movie Maker BASICS teaches readers how to create professional-looking movies and slide shows, complete with design elements such as transitions and sound. The text includes all of the information needed to master skills from importing media from various sources to publishing content to a variety of channels, and everything in between. The BASICS series suits many learning styles and provides several projects for a hands-on learning experience. Although introductory in nature, this text is comprehensive enough to cover the most important features of Windows Movie Maker 6.0.


  • Projects allow readers to demonstrate their creativity while learning how to apply their recently acquired skills.

  • Step-by-step instruction reinforces valuable movie-making concepts and helps readers follow along easily with each topic.

  • Screen shots provide visual support for the step-by-step instructions.

  • End-of-lesson review exercises, including Web Projects and true or false questions, emphasize the skills and concepts covered in that chapter.
