    Question Need some direction

    Hi Guys, I need some advice. I recently took a trip and have about 4 hrs of footage. I am new to video editing but have alot of time invested in audio editing and production. I am looking for a program that is some what user friendly for a nubie. I am looking to cut scenes, slow mo, text on screen and audio scoring. Any suggestion as to what program I can downlaod that will allow me to do this and renderdown with out the word demo on the screen or some other BS. If there is a free trial or something that would be great because wont use it agian for a some time (unless I get hooked). I dont want to spend alot of money for one video. I am proficient in sony acid/sound forge ect. any help would be great. Thanks

    You can download all of the video editing software listed here on the forum from their respective websites, I was going to suggest Windows Movie Maker (free and on your computer if you are using a Windows PC) but when I read you were creative with audio, I would say go for Adobe Premiere Elements 4, it will allow you to work with both video and audio or try Sony Vegas.

    If you are feeling more adventurous and want to jump in at the deep end, then download Adobe Premiere Pro CS3, but be warned it can be scary first time around. These are all 30 day trial applications I am listing (should be long enough to edit your video) but if you find one you like and it runs with no problems on your computer then you may decide to purchase the full version.

    Adobe also do other software that works with audio.

    Question directions again

    Hi,

    There are a lot of softwares that can do the job, namely cutting family videos (e.g. Media 100, Lightworks, Sony Vegas, Avid, Adobe Premiere, Ulead VideoStudio...). But which one is the best considering of course the cost of the software: I do not want to pay hundreds of dollars or euros for features that I never use.
    Thank you for your help in advance:

    piadex2

    ps: when you suggest a product please name it precisely because if we you see sony vegas there are four separate products with this name

    ps2: I want to use the software in at least the next five years
