Thread: new her and I need some help

  1. #1

    Default new here and I need some help

    Hi guys new here. I just bought a new digital camer that also takes hd video. I dont want to do anything fancy just some video clips mixed with pictures and some music in the background. I started to use window movie maker but it does not want to hadle the hd. So I downloaded version 2.6 and get this message(The collection of files is not valid or corrupted. A new empty collection files has been created.) I guess I can use regcure to fix it but it cost 30 bucks. I bought avs video editor 4 and it has issues to. I started to make a movie and when I preview it it played fine once then the second time when the first vid clip is done playing the cuser on the story board keeps going but the screen stays blank. Then I will move the cusor to any point on the storyboard and it will show nothing. And there are more issues. I have emailed them back and forth sevaral times and am still not happy with there solutions or the results. I requested my money back. Is there anything cheep out there that you guys have used that you know works well with hd? Please help I have asked eveywhere and have had no luck.

    The normal advice is to try out demo versions of the more well known software - Adobe Premiere Elements, Sony Vegas Movie Studio (platinum), Pinnacle Studio and see what takes your fancy.

    Just as a matter of interest, what camera are you using, and what format is the video file in?

    It's like they say it's best to try them all, I personally use Video Studio Pro X2 for HD, and have no problems with it.

( and while I am on this subject I hade the avs ad on the top of this page it doesnt handle mpeg4 very well I am getting my money back from them) Sorry about my whining guys.

    I currently have three trial video editing programmes on my PC: Sony Vegas, Cyberlink Power Director and Edit Studio. Personally I like Edit Studio, but my wife, who has a HD cam and runs a local news video website, likes Power Director so she's bought that.
    I'll probably get Edit Studio at some point.
    I wonder whether a pretty interface influences these decisions; Vegas has a pretty colourless interface.
    My advice is to get a few trial versions on your PC and run the same piece of footage through them all.
