Windows Movie Maker Alternatives

We encountered a student who had fallen victim to some deceptive marketing in video editing software. Windows Movie Maker, Microsoft’s free video editing software, has been discontinued and is no longer available. Some companies are capitalizing on this gap and offering software that runs right up till the point students need to export their video, and then asks them to pay.


We’re getting up to speed on alternative, free software for windows users and for now agree with the #1 recommendation from Tech Radar as a decent choice


As a reminder, students can always use the PML in Dimond 237 to complete their video projects without need for their own computer.
