Windows: If you’re using Vista or Windows 7 and miss some of the features and transitions that were in earlier versions of Windows Movie Maker, this portable version brings them back.
Windows Movie Maker has changed with each release of Windows. Unfortunately, some of the best features, like the ability to capture video from external devices such as DV camcorders and web cams, hit the cutting room floor starting with the Vista version.
Based on version 2.1 of Windows Movie Maker, Portable Windows Movie Maker not only lets you use the missing features on Vista and Windows 7 systems, but it includes the missing transitions and effects from Windows XP, as well as several additional features to boot. Portable and stand-alone, you can use it when you need removed features, like analogue capture, without messing with your current version of Windows Movie Maker. Portable Windows Movie Maker is freeware, Windows only. Portable Windows Movie Maker [via Download Squad]
