If you use a Mac, I would recommend iMovie. It is a easy to use, fairly feature rich, and best of all....FREE. If you are on WIndows, I think that ships with Windows Movie Maker. If you need something more robust, you could go with Final Cut Express for the Mac or Adobe Premier Elements for PC. That's my two cents!
I use Final Cut Pro on my Mac and Premier Pro CS3 on my PC.
I prefer Final Cut - Premier Pro has a few quirks that get on my nerves a bit. It's nothing huge, just a personal observation really.
Both are professional software so there's a bit more to learn but it's not bad. The payoff is in a much better set of features - you won't outgrow or get frustrated by limitations. You'd also be more capable of collaborating with professionals if need be.
If you're looking to edit video on a somewhat regular basis I would highly recommend doing it on a Mac. As Adam said, iMovie is a really great free software that has a lot to offer. I personally edit on Final Cut Pro and absolutely love it, but I realize that type of investment is not for everyone.
Greetings,What are you all doing online with "old" magazine stories? Do you delete issues after so many years? 5 years? 10? I'm torn between keeping all on for historical purposes or keeping just a few years online to simplify the site (ala Gerry McGovern.) Curious as to what you see best practices being.ThanksSara KisseberthBluffton Universitywww.bluffton.eduSee More
