Microsoft is set to launch Windows Live Movie Maker 14 today. This latest version will allow HD video editing (16:9), apart from standard definition videos (4:3).
With the latest version you can edit the movies and upload them straight to either YouTube or Facebook(with the help of a plugin), burn them to DVD, and save them in either 480, 720, or 1080 HD video. There is also an option to play videos directly on your HDTV. The whole interface has been revamped and looks different from its old counterparts.
There is a new feature called Auto Movie targeted towards less-technical users. With it you can create a videos under one minute, just select the images, give it a caption, choose the soundtracks and you are good to go. Microsoft has removed the classic timeline from the the main interface, instead you will find a brand new storyboard that makes quick video and audio editing possible.
Windows Movie Maker comes as part of Microsoft Live Essentials. It works on Windows Vista and Windows 7 only. Enjoy!
