I used to do media production for a living, but for my home use I tried to find a decent editor that was free. The best one was movie maker. (Not live movie maker... movie maker.) If it isn't already on your computer, look on If you want some more interesting effects, look into Cyberlink PowerDirector. It's pretty straight forward, and has some fun stuff.

Have fun!

ty, is Gimp also a good substitue? strangely i cant use my movie maker when i launch it, it says 'general access denied'
No... Gimp is a photo editing suite. My guess is that you are using a computer that you don't have admin access on. If you do, try reinstalling movie maker. You can search for it on

There is some information for you on wikipedia. Also, older versions of Windows come with Windows Movie Maker already installed. It really depends on what OS you are using and what you're trying to accomplish.
