Corp. will add a videoediting feature to its Windows XP operating system
with a new program that automates and simplifies home movie making, the
world's largest software maker said on Friday.
Maker 2, whose beta, or test version, which will be available for download
on Microsoft's Web site from Friday, is meant to dispel the notion that
home video editing takes hours and requires a lot of learning, said
Michael Aldridge, lead product manager at Microsoft's digital media
new program, which will be available for free as part of the Windows XP
license, automatically pulls video from a camcorder, analyses clips and
assembles a short movie set to music with titles and credits. As growth in
personal computers slows, software and hardware makers have been turning
their attention to the needs of the red-hot market for digital devices
such as digital cameras, digital camcorders and digital music players.
