Video Editing Software Recommendations Needed

Q: Video Editing Software Recommendations Needed

I know almost nothing about editing videos and get confused when I see the menus and controls in editing software. I don't even understand the terms. For instance, I don't see anything that looks straight forward to me as to how to open a video for editing. Instead, I see something that says "Open a Project" and I don't quite understand what to do with a video even if I do figure out how to open it in a "Project".

So, I'm kinda lost.

Here are some of the things I would like to do:

Join two videos together
Take out uninteresting segments that may be several seconds or several minutes long
Compress time, meaning in an instructional how-to-disasemble/reassemble video speed up time through repetitive identical processes, like maybe the removal of several screws.
Convert a larger MTS file to something much smaller so it can be easily downloaded and viewed, or attached to an e-mail
Remove a single frame from a video file to save as a still image
Brighten a darken a video
Color corrections

These are some of what I would like to do and if I am going to buy a software that will do these things and then learn how to use it, what would be a good one under $150? I've read a little about Adobe Premiere Elements and it looks okay; but, for someone who understands little about what he reads, I would like to have some advice from those who actually do this work regularly.

To be clear, I am not asking for instructions on how to do these things; I am asking which program(s) might be best and why one or the other might me better or undesirable. Once I settle on one, then I can start learning how to use it.

Thanks for reading.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If you have Windows 7, I'd suggest starting with Windows Movie Maker .. and Windows DVD maker.
Lots of YouTube tutorials available.
I just open WMM ... and Drag n Drop my vids

Most videos are too large to Email ... I use YouTube and Email the link.
Still frames from a video are usually poor quality ... (depends on what quality you need) ... I usually use a ScreenShot .. It's the same as WMM's Snapshot view

Other than these restrictions ... WMM is easy to use (and understand) and will probably do what you want to do .. (for free)
I do this regularly .. and WMM and WDVDM is all I use

Can anyone recommend a video editing software program that will allow students to edit and burn a DVD? I have a school setting which uses Windows XP in a Domain enviroment and the students have only restricted user rights. Currently we are using several copies of Pinnacle Studio which does not support MS "restricted user rights" policies (ie, can't burn a DVD!!!!) only the administrator can burn a DVD (that's me). I have been round and round with Pinnacle and they finally admitted their software won't work. What a waste of taxpayer money!

Any suggestions?

I have a Panasonic MiniDV camcorder (tape) and am looking for a good program to import and edit video. The camera comes with MotionDV Studio which basically works to import the video, but it's not very useful beyond that. I've used the latest Windows Movie Maker, which works fine but it's pretty basic. I've also tried Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD - it has many good features but it doesn't import properly from the camera (sync problems). Can you suggest anything? It's for personal not professional use and I don't want to drop too much $$ on it. Thanks!

Hello
I use Win Movie Maker presently as that was already installed, and I dont prefer that as it changes the video specifications or quality of the clip & doesnt give enough options to match the original specifications. Result is cubes on the screen, etc.
My only need is to trim, cut-short & in very few cases combine the clips. No effects or anything else is required. I mostly work with .mpeg, .wmv, .flv, .mp3

Can somebody please tell me what would be the best software for this purpose.

Thanks in advance

So I've just bought a TV card for my PC and 10 hours later I have finally worked out how to hook my old VHS player to it, to capture all my old VHS tapes to disk. It saves the file as MPEG, is this the best format?

The other problem I now seemed to be faced with is the file is superb on it's own but as soon as I drop into Windows Movie Maker, to add an intro pic to each video, the final cut is badly degraded. It goes a bit pixlelated and the sound has gone crap. Is Windows Movie Maker an OK tool, if so, any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong or would you recommend using something else? Is this a normal thing for the movie to lose some of it's quality? Anything good out there for free that you use that will not effect the quality of the original movie, other than that something cheap to buy instead.

EDIT: I'VE NOW SOLVED IT
Several hours later I learnt to use Windows Movie Maker directly to capture the VHS video and not to use the software that came with the TV card. The quality suffers a bit but is fine for YouTube using Windows Movie Maker but am now saving it twice. One file for YouTube and another file hi-quality for myself.

recently I have wanted to get into video editing and I decided to try out a few different video editing software tools. I tried windows movie maker 2.6 first and it kept skipping when I would preview clips and freezing. The same thing is happening with the trial version of adobe's premiere elements 9 trial version. For adobe, it told me to download the latest video driver that was compatible so i did and it allowed me to see my videos and use it a little bit but it would not be able to keep up and would freeze occasionally. Does this have to do with my graphics card? This is what I could find of my computers information (i typed dxdiag in run):

System:


Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit (6.1, Build 7600)
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System model: Satellite A505
BIOS: InsydeH20 Version 1.20
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU Q 720 @ 1.60GHz (8 CPUs), ~1.6GHz

Chip Type: Geforce 310M

If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

Hello.
I've got kind of a problem. Me and my friend are doing a school project about computers, their history etc. First, we wanted to do a presentation about this in PowerPoint, but because of compatibility issues (MSO vs. LibreOffice in school) we'd rather like to do a simple video about it, kinda replacing the standard presentation.
My first idea was to do things like this in Sony Vegas, or Camtasia - you know, just copy some text, add some images, simple effects, music, etc. But it's really not optimised for doing things like this - it's slow and even simple text formatting takes high amount of time.
My question is, is there any software that could help me in this situation? Maybe some plugins for programs like Vegas?
Thanks in advance.

I have what I think should be a simple editing need. However after two days of trying this and scouring the web, I'm still at point one. Which brings me here.

I have a sports skills video and at a certain frame I'd like to stop (pause) the video for about two seconds. During those couple seconds I'd like to place a semi-transparent box over a particular player. After the pause the video will resume as normal and the semi-transparent box will disappear.

I've had success, to an extent, using Flash to edit my flv (adding box on an additional layer), but I can not for the life of me figure out how to pause the embedded video.

Would anyone have any idea how I could easily go about doing this? I am not very skilled with actionscript which is making this difficult to accomplish with Flash. Speaking of which, I am completely open to any editor for any format of video out there. Whatever can get the job done. Oh, and preferably an open source software.

I'm looking for a good piece of software that costs no more than around £35-40, all I have at the moment is Windows Movie Maker and it sucks lol. So, any suggestions?

At the moment I'm looking at Ulead VideoStudio 10, but before I decide I was wondering if there were any other pieces of software better (but not more than £35-40 of course, lol).
 

A:Best video editing software?

Ulead Video studio is a good user friendly programme. Version 10 doesn't have the additions that 10plus has though so I would question whether you gain much over version 9available at Amazon for £20.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ulead-Video...sr_1_2/202-5987038-1191015?ie=UTF8&s=software
I am using version 9 and have downloaded the 10plus free trial to have a play with. Unless you want to edit HD video and want 7 overlay tracks as opposed to version 9's 1, then version 10plus doesn't really offer much more. (Version 10 has 1 overlay track as 9). Version 9 is also a lot faster at rendering completed projects than 10.
I'm going to stick with 9. I could be tempted in the future for 10plus, but the straight 10 version isn't worth the extra in my opinion.
You can compare all versions at Ulead's site to form your own opinion.

p.s.
Just found 10plus for £40 at Amazon.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss...-keywords=ulead+video+studio+10&Go.x=7&Go.y=9
It's in your price bracket. Would advise to make the choice between 9 or 10plus now both are within reach. Forget 10 which is only £16.97 on the same link.

Hey everyone,

Just wondering if you would be able to offer any help. I've been using Adobe Premiere 6.0 for video editing for the past 5 years now and I've finally decided it's time for an upgrade in video editing software. After initially looking at the latest version of Adobe Premiere I've decided it's far too expensive for me to justify purchasing. So I was wondering if you could offer any other suggestions?

I really want something similar to Adobe Premiere but I also want it to allow me to do fancy text effects and everything. iMovie looks good but as I'm using Windows XP that isn't a possibility. I want something more advanced that Windows Movie Maker and I've looked at Serif MoviePlus but didn't want to purchase without asking your expert opinions.

Movie Maker is probably the best free editing software. Anything else is mediocre IMO. I like After Effects/Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas but those are very expensive. If you just want compression software, use Handbrake. If you want Video Editing Software, look into Lightworks or VideoDub.

Hello all,

I ve been looking for a software that will allow me to parse parts of videos and place them in other videos.

For example, I have The Tow Towers on DVD, and there is a beautiful scenic view that is simply awsome. I want to parse my moving image from a video and place it in the scenic scene. So lets say I have a video of me walking, I want to make it look like im walking in that scenic scene of the Tow Towers. Anyway you get the point.

Do any of you know of any software that is capable of these tasks?

Thanks

Ulead Media Studio can, and I believe Adobe Premiere probably can....the difficult part is going to be achieving it....what it sounds like you want to do is "blue screen"....can be done, but if you have existing video of you, you will have to figure out a way to blue screen that in order to insert it into the other one....

I was using Cyberlink Power Director 13 on my PC, but its so power hungry it's unbealivable. It has more crashes then a deranged car, and freezes more times then the North Pole, even Polar bears and Penguins would be shocked.

I have my eyes on Sony Movie Studio 13 Suite or, Corel VideoStudio Pro X7. I would like to put it on my i5 laptop which runs windows 10 and has 8gb and 64 bit processor.

Which is the better one to go for?

I'm not really looking for all the bells and whistle's (although it would be nice) stabalisation is a must, and a story board where you drag and drop.

 

A:Which video editing software please?

Hi guys. I'm new to this forum, so excuse me if i break any common etiquette you may have. I'll keep it short:

I'm looking for an intermediate level video editing program. I want to make sure I can relatively easily do three things with this program:
put text anywhere on the screen at any time in the video.
Add an explosion anywhere on the video
make the video play backwards (and stay that way- as in an effect)
In fact, if i can get a program that does only these three things, I'll be set. Can you help me out?
(Price isn't an issue- I'm willing to pay for it)
 

A:Looking for video editing software

Playback speed and direction are typical features of mid-range consumer editors. Corel Videostudio12, Pinnacle Studio 12 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3 and up handle that with just a slider for speed and a tic box for direction.

Text position and duration is also fairly easy as all three have one or more overlay tracks which you can use to superimpose anything onto the video.

Explosions are a little different matter. Most editors come with some special effects but the bulk are sold as part of seperate add-on effect packs, especially Pinnacle. I didn't see any explosion effects in the basic ones I have and I can't say for sure but surely somewhere in one of the FX packs there must be such.

Maybe someone will know about that or another editor that I don't use which comes with explosions. I see I have fire as one of the effects in Pinnacle--good for before and/or after the explosion....
