View Video Effects (XP)/Effects (Vista)

Movie Maker in XP includes 28 video effects, and the Vista version includes 49 effects. You drag these effects on top of clips to change the video’s appearance. Drag the Sepia Tone effect on top of one of your clips, and your video adopts a brown hue and old-timey look. Drag File Age, Oldest, and your clip turns black and white, jitters about, and adopts dust and scratches.

You can add multiple video effects to a clip just by dragging one effect after another on top of it. If you find that you’ve gone too far, right-click the clip, and choose Video Effects (XP) or Effects (Vista) from the contextual menu. In the Add or Remove Video Effects dialog box that appears, select the effects you don’t want in the Displayed Effects list, and click the Remove button (Figure 5.5).
