Windows Movie Maker

I thought it would be useful to start a thread about using Movie Maker so we can teach each other how to get the most out of the program.
Movie Maker is already on your computer if you have Windows XP. I found it pretty easy to start using without reading how to do it. Now I'm trying to learn how to do more advanced stuff. I'll look for a good description to post about getting started.
This is what I made on my first attempt. It was much easier than I expected.

This is my video after I downloaded new zoom & panning techniques.
Video of Engagement 5 - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I just found out a way to zoom in on specific things & to pan across the picture. I had to download an addition to the program from here to do that. Rehan Pan Zoom Effects
You can try it free for 15 days. After that its $8. It was really easy to download & use. The new effects are available in the "effects" menu.
My current project is finding out how to overlay pictures where the one on top is transparent. I'll post if I figure out how to do it.
UPDATE Use this for hosting your video Vimeo, Video Sharing For You
UPDATE I've been told photostory is much easier to use to make slideshows. I haven't used it. it should be a free download if you have windows.

Here is the website to get you started on how to use Movie Maker. Its pretty user friendly so you might be able to figure it out just by clicking around. Depends on how much you use a computer.
I'm starting to explore this page to find cool effects to add to my program.

I'm finding some great stuff on Movie Maker about movie maker. I feel like I'm close to being able to make the transparent image on another picture. I will share it once I do it.

I thought I had the picture overlay thing figured out, but it just looked like picture in picture on a TV.

I've made several slideshows, and am starting to edit my wedding video as well. Here are two that I've uploaded...both of these are on this forum in other threads:

Microsoft Photo Story 3 for Windows: make show-n-tell cool again
I haven't used it, but I think it's for pictures only. It sounds like you can use it with movie maker to enhance your photos.

I've played around a bit with Movie Maker but I'm finding that when I view it full screen that the pictures look blurry (Pixelated). Are you having that same problem? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong? Thanks!
I really like using Movie Maker b/c it's so easy. but the pictures don't look that great. I tried it through Powerpoint and my pictures look fine full screen...
