This is my first post here, so be gentle...
I have been trying to find a simple piece of software to edit together some game-videos that I make on my computer (using FRAPS - www.fraps.com).
I'm looking for a prog that lets me:
- Edit the videos I make in full size (512x384x30fps - half resolution and half fps of my monitor), and outputs them in the same size. I'm not interested in showing these vids on a TV etc, so the resolution should remain 512x384x30fps.
- Must have a timeline so that I can trim each clip to match the soundtrack.
- Have some very basic transition effects (mainly fade in/out, dissolve and "dip-to-black").
I have tried about a dozen programs, and all have failed me...
One of my friends tried to show me Adobe Premier Pro 1.5, but it's total overkill for my purposes (and it seems to dislike XviD as output codec - crashes XviD every time I try to use it), plus it's too geared towards TV/DVD.
Roxio VideoWave 7 Pro is also overkill, plus it's too limited in the output department, it lacks the dip-to-black transition, and the dissolve-effect created nasty artifacts on the final output.
I looked at VirtualDubMod in desperation (I already use it for all my other video encoding), but it is useless for this type of editing.
The closest I've come is HonesTech VideoEditor v6.1 which does all that I want, only problem is that it crashes every time I try to alter transition settings, preview or render...
Anyone out there that know of a program that might fit my needs?
I'm going nuts here, not being able to get these videos done.
