Simple animations with Moviemaker and still images

Stop animation seems to become a more and more popular feature and there is a wide range of special software available. However it is very straight forward to make your own basic animations with software such as moviemaker.
Just create a series of low resolution still images (something like 1024/768 or 800/600) and import them to Moviemaker. You need to set the duration for the still images in the "Tools- Options - Advanced" menu to 0,125 seconds to make sure that you don't need to change the length of each image. Then just import you images and add titles and sound.
