Well now - why didn't someone tell me sooner about XP having Windows movie maker!
Another time waster -
I tried making a movie with my camera and playing a cd so they both recorded but that didn't go too well, I couldn't synchronize the music with the end of the movie so it just stopped cold
then I did another movie using some old scans from a travel journal I made a few years ago for my daughter to take on her first trip overseas, this time I added the music and discovered I could fade it in and out, so it's a slight improvement on the first.
I can see why people get hooked on these things - and done properly they can be a great way of showing your art - I've been looking on YouTube for dollmaking and textile work and there isn't half enough there to satisfy my new cravings.
