The Microsoft Windows Movie Maker 2 Fun Pack can be downloaded in three ways – either the 24.83 MB option which includes all of the enhancements available in the release can be downloaded or you can choose from the two smaller downloads of Partial Fun Pack 1: Titles and Credits which is 7.39 MB and Partial Fun Pack 2: Music and Sound Effects which is 18.37 MB.
Splitting the download into two categories is a useful provision by Microsoft – not all users will want the visual options, and not all users will necessary want the audio options. Interestingly the sounds and music in the Microsoft Windows Movie Maker 2 Fun Pack are provided by Sounddogs.com, and Academy Award winning outfit who have delivered sound FX for over 60 movies!
Once downloaded, the sound, music, titles and credits Movie Maker items will be saved in c:\My Documents\My Videos\Creativity Fun Packs – you will need to manually import these into Movie Maker. You can do this in Movie Maker by going to File > Import into Collections... and browsing for the sound and visual effects. Some will need to be imported in groups, others individually.
As soon as they're imported, these new add ons will be available to incorporate into your movies. Music and sound effects in particular are very useful for conversions of old cine films that you might be editing, while any movie or collection of related clips will benefit from titles and credits.
