The article is not clear at all about what this is. It is only for Vista users with old video cards that cannot run Vista's version of Movie Maker. This is basically the XP version of Movie Maker for Vista. It's not an update and is not needed if you have a decent video card.

I don't get it, I thought vista already comes with movie maker? I've used it, it's got some excellent features, and then some very unrefined glitches.

Is this an update to it? because the homepage links to an xp movie maker site.

While I found the program easy to use without tuition and editing proved transparent, I was disappointed at the screen result of importing an AVI file created on a MAC. The file plays fine under QT or RP, but the result under VMM whether the AVI or a saved edited MPEG was either fat/short or tall/thin!! And there seems to be no other way of reformatting the screen appearance. Very sad for what could be a very handy little tool.

The MS page says the page content was updated on January 28, 2003. It doesn't say the file was updated. As far as I can see, this is the same file that was released earlier in the month, not a changed file.

I checked the build of my Windows Movie Maker 2 I downloaded when it first released, and the build number is exactly the same. Beware M$ likes to update the DATE of their softwares, without updating the component itself. Though, it's a good program!

I was actually impressed with the program after making a picture slide show with it. There were a few quircks, though:

* One section got totally corrupted. Pictures were either turned upside down or missing. I'm not sure what happened.

* Loading time is a little high.

Other than that the movie turned out great. There were some really nice effects for the credits that I liked.

Just to let everyone know this is not a newer version than the 2.0 that was already released some time back. I don't know why all the sites have gone nuts and posted it again. It's the exact same thing. Anyway...

I like it myself. Much improved over 1.0, and very easy to use. For the price you certainly can't beat it.

Great for people like my mom who isn't real experienced with computers. Now she can make cool home movies with transitions and titles! :) And version 2 is now worthy to even compeat with iMovie. Very good update.

I don't like this program (I use Adobe Premiere), but... trapanator... VirtualDub and Movie Maker are two different kind of program, they are completely unrelated... so, what means that VirtualDub is better?
