DVD Editing Software

  Doberman 10:13 17 Oct 2005

I'm a complete beginner to video editing and want to know if anyone can recommend editing software that's relatively inexpensive. Is Windows Moviemaker any good?

Please consider what you want to produce too. Full screen video playback quality is as much down to your hardware as it is the software you choose. If you're happy with low res in a small window while you dabble and learn then many suggestions will be fine. Microsoft's is good and I used Pinnacle for my main prog. Enjoy.

I use Sonic MyDVD Studio which can be downloaded for £43.99 from: click here

But I bought Ulead MovieFactory 4 for someone a week ago, cost £23.89 (inc VAT and postage) from Ebuyer.

Seems to have gone up a bit since then, now appears to be around £33.

"Is Windows Moviemaker any good?" - It really depends what you want to do! I have used MM to make some slideshows but haven't really got into the video side of it yet, although I have dabbled with it bit.

It seems to me that video-editing on a PC is relatively time-consuming as everything is done in realtime, which when you are trying to put together a movie can be frustrating!

I would certainly start with MM and if you find you enjoy it (and have time to pursue it!), then investigate some of the other s/ware available.

MM does have some limitations, but to a certain extent these can be overcome. If you want to use MM have a read thro' click here, which I found very useful before starting with MM (and certainly saved wading through the help files!).

HTH & Good Luck.

Version 7 out now in shops and dowloadable from Oct 26th click here

I have used Nero 6 Reloaded (OEM Suite) availabe for £3.49 inc VAT click here (scroll down the page).

[It took a while, but I have a nice compilation of video and slideshow on on one disc now.]

I also have used Nero version for video but found it dropped too many frames. Consequently the playback was very jerky.

Hopefully Version 7 will overcome that problem.
