Video Editing Software

Hello One and All

I am juat about ready to tear my hair out trying to find some software for video editing software that actually works. We now have a camcorder, but the software that came with it is 5 year out of date and NOT user friendly ie:Ulead VideoStudeo 5 and cannot be upgraded as it is out of date, plus it is crap.
Have tried various others, to no avail. These editing tasks take up a lot of time which I don't have. The one proggie that I have had the most success with is Windows Movie Maker.... there is always a but, when I have tried to add audio wav files, on playback I am continuously getting a beep beep beep sound continuously from beginning to end, plus it does not burn to DVD, only CD which is not recognised by our DVD player, which is new. Any suggestions would be appreciated, before I have no hair left,

Can I suggest you type "Video editing software" into Google. You'll get a whole load of reviews starting with video editing review 2006

These will give you an idea of what does what, but I would say that you don't need to spend a fortune and the very latest version at the highest price is not necessarily the best

Perhaps I may suggest that the first thing to do is sort out the problem with your sound from the Windows Movie Maker. This free software is probably one of the easiest to use and while you may need another programme to record the results onto dvd you should get the sound ok. If you don't it is probably because of a wrong setting on the computer and you may well find another programme will produce the same failure on the sound side

I've used ULead Videostudio 7 (now out of date I'm sure) and found it worked well. However, the best thing to do is to download trial versions of these programmes, and see which you find easy to work with before you buy

Some of them are pretty complicated to get your head round, and I came to the conclusion that Windows Movie Maker is easy, followed by a dvd burning programme to get the result onto a disk

A few months ago PC Advisor had Ulead video studio 7 as a freebie. I have tried it and it is OK You can use it make DVDs of your epic.

Thanks everyone for your support. I have looked on Google and found one or two and tried, but so far have not found one that is user friendly enough to do a good job. So very complex, but shall take a look at the recommended software.

Many thanks
