Windows Movie Maker sux

Postby Agent_Two » Tue Jul 09, 2002 12:17 pm

Hey there people, I am a new member, but I wish to know if there is a free downloadable program which I can get to make music videos. I currently use WMM which makes the picture quality kinda bad with WMP. You can e-mail me at: agent_two2@hotmail.com with any suggestions and ideas, thanks!!! :D

Go buy Adobe Premiere 6... or borrow it from one of your "friends". Well derr, of course WMM sucks. It's one of those flashy quickmake programs. The flashy "do-it-yourself-easy-pushbutton" programs usually do suck.

oops... (forgot to add this)

AP6 isn't free, but it's a good program to use. I don't know any free ones that are good, sorry! Buying is the best way out--and don't pirate programs! (If you do) Bad, pirate, bad! *eats your polly*

yeah WMM used to piss me off. But apparently there is some kinda error that i didn't know about.


The little progress bar when you render will not move but it is still rendering. Damn me and my N00bness. I'm going to check this out tommorrow when i have a little more time.

WMM isn't that bad a program. It can be a tough woman to please though.

Go get Adobe or Pinnacle something or other. Freeware editing never makes good videos.

well what do expect to get from something that's free??? :?

i mean, if actual good things were free, then this would be one screwed up world wouldn't it?

just save up your money if you want Premiere that badly. if you don't want to pursue AMV making that bad, then i dont know what to tell you other than "too bad for you, get over it". 8)

If it wasn't for the output quality issues WMM has, I don't see why people slam it so much. It does most of what you need - albeit I suspect it has trouble opening AVISynth files but I've never tried.

People who think they need Premiere to do everything are just plain wrong. Sh1t, Hsien used to use Ulead Media Studio Pro for everything, and he made some really really kickass videos. Half of my videos could be made using WMM or Ulead or Pinnacle Studio 7. You don't need Premiere for everything... in fact I think sometimes it'd be better if everyone wasn't given the options that Premiere gives them because 97% of the options in Premiere shouldn't be used in a music video (read: snazzy transitions, stupid filters, etc).

Things like the replicate filter. I _hate_ that filter. The only time I've EVER seen it used right is in Shameless Rock Video, every other time I've seen it used it's been trite and detracted from the video.

Premiere is a very very powerful tool, and many of the things it does are truly technically impressive, but most of the time you don't need them. If you gave me a video editing tool that could do multiple tracks with transparency, had only the Crossfade filter, and could work with my DV500 in realtime like Premiere, then I would use it, because it would pretty much do everything I needed. WMM comes close to having what everyone needs, it's just held back by some video quality shortcomings from what I've seen.
