Video Editing Software

  ribo 10:15 17 Feb 2005

I burnt my first DVD using Nero (with the help I received from dadassa. However I am unable to edit the videos using Nero and am now lokking to buy a video editing prog.

I downloaded the free trial of Ulead Video Studio but found it very complicated and there did not appear to be any help available.

I have had a go with Windows Movie Maker.Can anyone suggest an easy to use Prog. I realize this is subjective,but when advising me,bear in mind That I found Ulead complicated. I am very new to this. Thanks.

I was given a Sony Video editing package which I've found easy to use and flexible

Have you got the user manuals for Ulead, which can be downloaded from click here ? I think if you persevere you'll find it as easy as the other packages which have been recommended.

I have been using Pinnacle Studio 9 and have found it very easy to use

I have downloaded and printed the manual. (204 pages!) I will give it another go.

easyrider- I would have liked to download a trial before buying as it is quite expensive, But we shall see. It is one I thought of.

All the video editing software that I have come across seems complex when you first use it. After a time, though, it comes sort of second nature and you will be zooming through your editing like a pro.

One thing I would suggest, though, is find a program you get on with (nothing wrong with the Ulead) and stick with it, at least until you are thoroughly familiar with it. With such large and involved programs it is easy to get confused - even more so if you have two or more on the go.

I've just spotted this thread - if you are still trying with Moviemaker have a look at these sites which i have found quite useful click here click here

Moviemaker does take a bit of getting used to but with some perseverance I have managed to make some quite reasonable movies.

Good Luck!

Ps - just seen your other thread - You are using Moviemaker2 (not 1 - which was/is very basic) aren't you?
