    Yes its on the Video Editing Software Reviews Free for Windows 2012 – Part Two of the article, Windows Movie Maker is good for basic video editing and it is already a predefined software in some computers when you are using a PC, like the Imovie on a MAC computer. Putting up movie slide-shows, merging two videos, adding transitions, etc. But, for extra video editing task like, splitting multiple frames, extracting, rendering frames, and so on. windows movie maker is lacking some extra features on the that side. With that said, video editing is a time consuming work to tackle so choosing whats the best is up to you and what you are good at using that kind of software.

    Also, added the windows live essentials, I rate the software’s depending on the first-hand, its an amateurs way of rating.
