You can now edit your favorite videos without having to use expensive software by using Windows Movie maker, known as SimpleVideoCutter. If you're familiar with this software, you might think that there is a similar product for Mac operating systems. That's not the case; SimpleVideoCutter is actually a Windows-based program that works with Windows Vista, allowing you to edit and share your favorite videos with your friends and family. So even if you use Windows Vista, you will still be able to edit your videos.
Open a video file that you'd like to edit on the desktop in the program's main window. Select the video format you'd like to use from a list that contains all the commonly used formats, such as AVI and MPG. The video should just start playing normally in the video screen, and you can simply pause it at any time by pressing the space bar or by using the mouse wheel. To share your favorite videos with family and friends, you can use Windows Media Player, a web-based player for Windows-based computers. Once your movie is saved on your hard drive, you can copy it to an iPod, CD-ROM, or USB flash drive and share your video anywhere you go.
If you'd like to edit multiple videos, you will need to open multiple project instances in the SimpleVideoCutter window. Choose a video from one of the projects and drag it into the appropriate location on the timeline. When you are finished editing your video, you should see the changes in real time in the main view. Your video will be saved to your desktop for viewing in real time.
