my brother got his first laptop recently and yesterday i attempted to teach him a little about video editing with windows movie maker
problem is the program its self, previous versions of windows movie maker although very basic are intuitive and great for total newbies (imo) the latest version for Windows 7 is a total nightmare.
in my experience video editing software (vegas, premier, pinnacle etc etc) or rather the basic editing methods run in a more or less similar vein. Windows movie maker for Windows 7 is like no other time line editor i have ever experienced.
After earlier versions of Movie maker it would have been a logical step up to say, Premier Elements but after MM but not anymore i gave up trying to show my brother the basics i was starting to confuse him ...... and myself..... i think hes going to get PE
