I am a newbie to video and need some advice on selecting a video editing software.
What I plan to do with the software:
I plan to create videos for YouTube and other internet sites for promote my business. The videos will be everything from product reviews to scenery shoots to movie shorts.
My hardware setup:
To start with I will be using my digital camera, which shoots quite decent quality 640x480 MPEG video. I may graduate to a digital camcorder later. I have a tripod for my camera.
I plan to use my computer and Audacity to record and mix as much of the audio as possible. I don't know how much of the audio I can record (then sync with the video) this way, so I think I may need good audio capabilities (multi-track, noise removal, mixing, etc.) in the video editing software.
My computer specs are:
AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50 (1.6GHz)
Windows XP Media Center
Based on my research, it seems that the best options are:
Corel Ulead VideoStudio 11 Plus
Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 (Not 4.0)
Which of these options would be best? Or, is there another software option that would be better?
I would appreciate any advice of any type.
