Movie Moments

We’ve been playing with Microsoft’s video editing app, Movie Moments, and we think many of you are going to like it. You’re going to need Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers or a Windows 8.1 PC/tablet if you want to check it out. In just a few steps, it turns your video clips into short movies with captions and music.

Head past the break to watch our hands-on video with Movie Moments on the Nokia Lumia Icon.

Movie Moments lets you record video from within the app or select an existing one from the camera roll. You’re allowed to have up to 60 seconds of video, so you might have to do some trimming. Simply drag the beginning and end points.

The second step lets you add fun, colorful captions in a range of styles. Drag the playback button to the position you want and then click the caption button above it. Type the caption and swipe round to see which style you like. Each caption has animation, so make sure to browse through them.

The third step lets you add background music to your movie. Microsoft has included a few songs for different moods, or you can use songs from your collection.

Once you’ve edited your mini-movie, you can save it to your phone or share it via OneDrive or Facebook.

Capturing video footage with our phones is so easy, that we end up having many of these clips sitting dormant on our devices. With just a few quick edits on Movie Moments, you can have a shareable story on video with animated captions and background music.

Movie Moments is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. It is also available for Windows 8.1 from the Windows Store. Go download it now for your device and let us know what you think!
