Bellingham, WA, January 24, 2011 -- Pixelan Software, celebrating its 15th year as a popular provider of video effects plugins, released today the 6.0 version of its SpiceFX for Movie Maker effects software. Microsoft's Windows Movie Maker, which is included in nearly every PC worldwide, is a long-time free popular editing tool for making movies. Users love its simple interface, which makes it very popular for home users as well as many businesses, churches, schools, and non-profits. The only problem is Movie Maker has many limitations compared to more powerful/expensive video editing programs. SpiceFX 6 for Movie Maker plugins solve that, affordably turning Windows Movie Maker into much more versatile (but still easy to use) video editing software.
The new SpiceFX 6 release includes 15 pre-made Packs that add more than 650+ useful drag-and-drop effects and transitions to Windows Movie Maker. Packs include "Ken Burns" pan zoom effects, animation effects to convert video into cartoon or abstract looks instantly, various film looks, accents and highlights, time effects, soft/organic transitions, 3D particle transitions and page turns, and more. SpiceFX 6 also includes 10 powerful Wizards to make custom titles, overlays, pan zooms, film looks, and many other video effects and transitions for Windows Movie Maker -- all in one easy, visual tool. With the Wizards, users can create the exact look they want, then one-click export it into Movie Maker as a built-in effect.
Michael Feerer, Founder and President of Pixelan, says "With SpiceFX 6, users can customize and adjust color, contrast, brightness, blur, sharpness, pan zooms, crops, text position/animation, logo/graphic overlays, and more -- easily and visually. These are all important, everyday editing and effects needs that Movie Maker simply cannot do at all (or very well) on its own."
Michael also noted that Windows 7 users with Windows Live Movie Maker can take advantage of a simple workaround to also utilize SpiceFX 6, even though Windows Live Movie Maker does not yet officially support any advanced plugins. Details are at the Pixelan web site.For more information, a demo download (which include some fully-functional free effects for Movie Maker demo users can keep even if they don't buy SpiceFX), and cool example movies made with SpiceFX 6, please visit http://www.pixelan.com/movie-maker/spicefx-intro.htm Upgrade specials for existing Movie Maker users and bundle savings for new users are both available there. Individual Packs and Wizards are priced as low as $8 and $12, respectively, and bundles range from $24 to $49. SpiceFX 6 is available for purchase directly from Pixelan's web site.
