Movie Making Software Similar to Windows Movie Maker XP but for 7?

  1. Jun 16, 2014 #1
    Does anyone know of a movie maker program that`s similar to the one on windows XP but that can work for Windows 7 and on a netbook?

    I tried making movies with the new windows movie maker, but it trims in seconds and it`s to much of a hassle to make more then one using it.

    I`ve downloaded some recommended ones but can`t get on with them,or they`ve been detected as a threat by my anti virus program.

    I preferable want it to either let you trim it manually or allow you to specify how long the video is in minutes not seconds.

    Thanks for any recommendations.

    P.S:Would the XP one work in compatibility mode for 7?

    Try Adobe After Effects. You can do whatever you want with movies. It offers much more than what Movie Maker can offer!

    Thanks, but no good for my little netbook.My CPU is N570 @ 1.66GHz, way to low to run After Effects.
    Thanks tho.

    1 minute=60 seconds. What's so unsatisfying about that?

    1)Takes to long to figure out for anything that isn`t whole i.e i can`t always think clearly,and get muddled up.
    2)When i found the correct time,and entered it in WMM it didn`t do the specified time,it when over,and when i tried to trim the film,it deleted it.
