Windows Movie Maker Alternative

On my pc which upgraded from Win 8 to 8.1 then 10, I still have Movie Maker, but it is in the conservatory which is far too hot. On my new lappy, W10 was installed from the beginning, thus no WMM :angry: I have looked online at all the ways to make WMM compatible with W10, but none work for me. I don't edit videos very often and the Microsoft offering did all I needed. I am trying to find something similar, but am drawing a blank. 

Any suggestions at all please?

Mark

I personally use Final Cut Pro although that’d mean you’d need to invest in a Mac (Assuming you don’t have one already). For Windows there’s Adobe Premiere Pro although as far as I’m aware it doesn’t come cheap.

@Marksfish  If you just want to chop up bits of a video.... and save them .... Have a look at AVIDEMUX  its FREE... and simple to use.

You can then use Any Video Converter, to change the format, AND join all those bits back into one video. ( there is a little thing at the bottom of the screen that you need to tick  " join all "  or something... (been a while since I used it ) .. but it works well..

For windows the best NLE editor is Vegas Pro but that sounds like overkill for your needs.

 

Of the free editors Lightworks gets good reviews. There's also HitFilm Express. There are others listed here but a lot depends on your level of experience and what you want to achieve with the end product.

Persistence won over :smiley:. I found a good download of Windows Essentials and tried to install Movie Maker, it failed :angry:. I tried again and ran the programme in compatibility mode for Win 8 and it installed and works :thumbsup:
