Where can I find special effects?
All I have is movie maker..... I want adobe effects, but it is expensive. Are their any plug ins for movie maker that would do remotely cool stuff like adobe. Is their any alternative programs I can use?
Here is a link to the effects I am talking about.

There aren't that many programs around that can do what After Effects can do. Here's some I know about - the ones mentioned at http://tv.isg.si/site/?q=node/873 are good but the list is a little old now.
Wax - http://www.debugmode.com/wax/ - is good, but can be tricky to use.
Zwei-Stein - http://www.thugsatbay.com/tab/?q=zs4-video-editing... - I've tried this several times but just cannot get on with the interface.
Lightworks - http://www.lightworksbeta.com/ - is good.
Take a look at the tutorials for WMM, it may be all you need - http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Tutorials/

Unfortunately, free or inexpensive video fx software is rare. The least expensive but still good programs are the Hitfilm series:Standard, Ultimate and Studio.
For freebies, there's WAX which is older but worked on Vista and seems to work on my Windows 7 machine (even though I'm having a hard time learning how to use it;-(
The freebie with the most potential, Cinefx/Jahshaka, is supposed to have a new version in development but there's no release date. The old version is still available for download. I don't know if it works with Windows 7.
There are Wax and Jahshaka tutorials on YouTube.
