create, edit and export your videos in movie maker. This is a beginner level tutorial which will
help you start with basics of video editing. If you like this video please subscribe and
hit that bell icon to know when the new tutorial is out. Thank you! So, let’s start. In this quick guide you will learn the following
things: How to cut, copy paste in movie maker
How to add titles, credits, transitions effects And of course, how to export highest quality
video First, go to the project tab and make sure
that you set it to no emphasis and that widescreen is selected. This way you will have all things prepared. Just set it and forget it 🙂 Ok, I prepared one folder with videos for you
to practice with me, so you can download it from the link in the description. Import your media by clicking on the right
here, select all your media with ctrl+a and click open. Or just drag and drop directly from the folder. Wait for a few moments for movie maker to
prepare files. Don’t skip this preparation process as it
will make your editing easier and faster. Feel free to arrange videos by clicking and
dragging video where you want. Before you start to add effects, transitions
let’s add title and credits to your video first. To do that click add title and it will ad
a black empty clip. Double click on the enter text here and enter
a title for your clip. Delete what’s inside and add your title. Play with this little dots to make it in the
middle. The easiest way is to stretch it like this
and set paragraph to be in the middle. Easy right? Let’s see the result. Move this slider to the beginning and hit
play. It’s a bit slow start, so to speed it up
just select it, go to edit tab and set the duration to be 4 seconds. It will now be a bit faster. Nice. Now go to the home tab and click add credits,
and add some credits at the end just like you did in the beginning. You can add starring, director and so on if
you want, it’s up to you. Ok! Nice! Now you have your basic video ready. But, it’s far from over. Now you going to learn how to cut, split,
copy, or paste videos and add transitions to it. Let’s say that this butterfly clip is a
bit long. Let’s cut it in half for now. Just position marker in the middle of the
video, make sure your video is selected go to edit and hit split over here or hit right
mouse button and select split. You just split your video in half, nice. Let’s say we don’t need this second half. Just select it and hit delete on your keyboard
or right click and select remove. If you mess something up just go ctrl+z to
undo stuff. Now select those flamingos and cut them in
three sections. Select first part and change speed of the
clip by going edit and select speed to be 8 times faster. Same with the third part. Hit play and you can see that you have this
nice slow effect. You can also do this by reducing the speed
of the middle part. It’s the same, just play with it and you
will do it fine. OK, now it’s time to add some transitions
to spice up the video. Select your first video and go to the animation
pane and over here click on the drop-down menu and hover over with your mouse to find
the effect that you like. I’ll choose this circle effect. Now choose all other videos and add some effects
to it. Edit durations, cut unwanted parts and so
on… If you have a video with music already present,
just select it and go to edit tab and set volume all the way to the left. Now it’s without music. Great! Let’s add some visual effects to your video. Go to visual effects select your video and
choose the desired effect. It’s the same as you did with animation. The big part is over! Now let’s add some music to make a video
more alive! If you want to publish video on the youtube
and monetize it, I recommend to go to your youtube dashboard, click create and click
audio libraries. Over here you will find free music without
you need to worry about license. Just select attribution not required and you
will get all the music you need for free. I’ll cover more about music and licencing
in some other video about youtube music and policies so stay sharp and subscribe to know
more about it. Download your favorite song and click this
blue note to add music. Find your music and add it to the video. You can cut it just like you did with the
video. Ok, let’s remove that silence at the beginning. Position your marker go to music tools, this
green tab over her and hit split. After that just drag and reposition it. My recommendation is to add fast fade in and
out effects to create more subtle audio transitions. This is it. You can preview your video and make some fine
adjustments, and you are ready for export. To do this go to file, save movie, and save
for high definition display. This way you’ll always have highest possible
quality for your video. This is it, guys! it’s just a basic tutorial

maker playlist or just click the link in the description and you will find 24 videos to

  1. i have a problem when i pause the video and i press play again the audio skips back a few seconds but the video doesnt and then the video and audio are not synced at all and i couldnt find anything online on how to fix it! its impossible to edit like this

  2. I am using Movie Maker 2012 (Build 16.3528.0331) on Windows 7. My Movie Maker is forcing whole numbers. I enter a duration of 0.6 and it becomes 0. A duration of 1.2 becomes 1. Any number I enter automatically drops to the lower whole number. It's like the decimal is just being ignored. I really need the duration in decimals for my videos can someone tell me how do I solve this problem please?
