Video Editing Software

Postby Stevie_W » Fri, 15 Nov 2013 7:36 pm

Can anyone recommend a good one that's easy to use and preferably free :)
If i have to pay, so be it, but would be good to get some advice.
Cheers

Try avidemux, if it works for you. Not the easiest to use, but free.

OK. Will give that a try.

Also, to add. There were a few other supposedlt free ones but only with limited features unless you buy the whole package

I have used both Videopad and Cyberlink Power Director. Each is USD 50. Videopad is probably easier to use but I had a couple of quirky events trying to sync music to video clips.

Googled and got this: http://www.techradar.com/us/news/softwa ... ad-1136264

I've seen this already. Most of the ones i tried were as i mentioned earlier; limited functionality until you pay for the full version. Some of these i didn't find that great, but maybe it was just because i was using the trial version.

I don't mind paying, but i don't want something crap, hence asking what people here recommends. But then if someone has a good free one, i'll gladly take that.

Have you tried anything of Sony Movie Studio? This is the best inexpensive video editing software I managed to find but it may not be that easy for a beginner and Sony's customer service sucks.

Movie Studio is a little brother of Vegas software so sort of relation Like Adobe Photoshop Elements to full Adobe Photoshop.

for simple videos, Microsoft Movie maker does a good job .. just make sure you are on 64 Bit OS and 4 GB or more RAM, for faster churning of the video ..

Adobe Premier is the one I hear recommended by my semi-pro casual friends that refuse to use a Mac.

Free trials on their site, and probably pretty simple to get a keygen or crack. Not that I normally endorse illegal activity, but Adobe was criminally negligent with their customer's data this past month so f-ck them.

Yup Windows Movie Maker by Microsoft is good enough.
