Video editing software
« on: May 27, 2016, 02:57:44 pm »
Hi guys - forgive my ignorance but I'm a real newbie at the video stuff - got some great video of a recent trip into Namibia and looking to edit.  What software is recommended?

Are you running Windows, Mac or Linux?

I'm no expert... but I use Blender.  It runs on both Windows and Linux.

There are some great tutorial videos on YouTube to get you going!

I use Pinnacle, great software but its a bit pricey though (approx R1,800).

Windows Movie Maker is brilliant and very easy to use.

If you on a Mac iMovie is pretty good, older version were better than the newer dumbed down version.

but for amateur movies both are good options - and best of all both are free.

If you have a GoPro - they have some (free) software that is very easy to use.
Chances are that you don't want to do fancy stuff like multiple angles (cameras) etc.

The Gopro software let you cut out errors, 'dead' footage and other unwanted material and make it very easy to organise the clips into a movie.

I've always used Windows' movie maker 'till I grew out of it.
I now use Magix Movie Edit Pro (Steam edition), but it has the features that I need.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
