Windows Movie Maker, which is Microsoft Video editing program that came into existence 19 years ago, did not achieve the success Microsoft would’ve liked, as a result of which the company had to discontinue the support for the program. However, the demise of the 19-year old program paved the way for an alternative solution that comes bundled with Windows 10, and in a new video, Microsoft wants to remind its users that there exists a better alternative to Windows Movie Maker, simply called Video Editor.
In the video, Microsoft also discusses how it created and build movie-making apps. “If I step back and look at how our video editing tools were developed, I see that the process of creating the tools has changed. Back in the day, we didn’t actively look at the feedback. Today, we look at user feedback daily, making changes more frequently. We’re also much more collaborative when developing features. Where we used to have a single designer who is responsible for the look of the app, today we collaborate with multiple designers proactively working to gather feedback from all areas to better understand our users’ needs. As we create new tools, we’re always asking, what users want,” said Nitin Suri, Photos app team.
