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

Does anyone know of a movie maker program thats 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 its to much of a hassle to make more then one using it.

Ive downloaded some recommended ones but cant get on with them,or theyve 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 isnt whole i.e i cant always think clearly,and get muddled up.
2)When i found the correct time,and entered it in WMM it didnt do the specified time,it when over,and when i tried to trim the film,it deleted it.
