I have been looking around for a good video editor for over a month now and I have found it very hard to come to a conclusion on what to buy. So I decided to join these forums and ask.
I am just starting to get into DV stuff and and so I am looking for a good editing program that is reliable and not too expensive, doesn't require a university degree to operate, won't hog all of my computer's resources, has a great sound editor and can do some more technical things such as single frame editing (e.g. like for rotoscoping). I am also after features such as colour grading, green screen/blue screen, reversing of footage, and a good customizable DVD menu system. I doubt that there is any progam that has all of those things. Is there any program (or programs) that you could suggest?
I have looked quite a bit at Pinnacle Studios and Premiere Elements but after reading a lot of reviews there seems to be a few setbacks with both of them. I have downloaded the trial version of Vegas 6 and it seems to be fairly good but it can't do all that I am after.
Has anyone got any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
