MiniTool MovieMaker 7.1 Improvements Provide Better User Experience
In this update, MiniTool MovieMaker 7.1 comes with two important changes to help you preview and manage media files.
#1. Optimization of Music Resource Preview Window
Music is an essential part of an impressive and professional-looking video. To help you create high-quality videos, MiniTool MovieMaker has a music library that is constantly adding new tracks. Some songs were not added in this update, but the music preview window was changed.
In older versions of MiniTool MovieMaker, each music project contained a white note on a black background. When you hover over the music item to preview the song, it just shows a small black window.
In MiniTool MovieMaker 7.1, the album cover changes to a pink background with a white note. When you preview a song, you can see the music title, thumbnail, waveform, and timecode.
#2. Automatically Jump to My Album After Importing Media
Under the Media tab, you can click on any subcategory (My Album, Videos, Music, Pictures) to import videos, pictures, and audio files. In old versions of MiniTool MovieMaker, you would still be on the same sidebar after importing media.
After importing media in MiniTool MovieMaker 7.1, it will automatically jump to the My Album subcategory and you will see all the imported media files immediately. Then, you can go to the corresponding subcategory to find specific media or directly search for it.
#3. Added a New Trending Category for All Online Resources
Additionally, MiniTool MovieMaker 7.1 added a Trending category of Transition, Effect, Text, Motion, and Elements, which contain some of the most popular options for each resource.
