This week in the MindBite Insight, we offer a counterpart to last week’s lesson on Editing Basics for Macs. We would be remiss if we did not provide a similar instructional for our PC patrons, so we now present to you EDITING BASICS (for Windows). Loaded with all the glorious goodies of last week’s Insight, this lesson explores the elements of Window’s Movie Maker, the free editing program that comes installed with all recent versions of Microsoft Windows.

Keith, in a bumbling yet mildly coherent manner, walks you through the steps of getting your footage into the computer, organizing it, editing it, and finally exporting the finished sequence into a format that is ready for its debut on the MindBites website. Geared toward novices, this tutorial is a quick introduction designed to throw you into the throes of editing with all the essentials, yet little of the fluff. We strongly encourage all beginners to spend an hour or two after watching this lesson perusing the program’s many intricacies and features. It doesn’t take much to get the hang of these highly intuitive programs, just the mindset and some determination and you’ll be MindBiting your heart out in no time. Enjoy!

I am but a mindful haberdasher. My words are stifled and whimsical whilst my thoughts run plenty and strong. I'll give you a hearty handshake if you look me in the eye. Please teach me thorough for I am slow of study. I've shared all I've ever learned, and learned everything from the act of sharing. But please, keep your words small, for I am but a mindful haberdasher...

I liked the author's overview of how to use Windows Movie Maker to edit video but I'm more concerned with how to edit a the audio of my project. I want to reduce the noise in the background. Is there an easy way to do this with a free Windows operating program?
