ok when i meant nothing too advanced i didn't mean to imply that im a retard and cant use complex programs. i just haven't got the money to buy an expensive video editing suite. i briefly used movie maker and hated it because of the obvious limitations.
if you know of anything in between that and adobe premiere i'd appreciate that thanks?
I use Studio v9, although its 80% good it does freeze occassionally, and sometimes you get "lip sync". I have not yet decided whether Ulead 10 or Adobe premiere Elements would be better. I edit non commercial DVDs up to 2 hours long and its difficult to decide without a trial which would be better. The only way I suppose is try them out. This type of editing is very time consuming both to renender and to get into, and playing around to understand how these progs work is also very time consuming, hence my hesitation. David
