    Wow, you must have spent a lot there

    Try Adobe Premiere Elements. It's full of features to mess around with, and it's reasonably cheap and easy to use.

    I'm guessing you mean synchronising the music to the beat? So the scene changes along the time of the beat? Practise. That's all I can say!

    3). i have a analog camercorder that uses USB not DV (Firware) and i tried to make a video but it turned out really crappy the quality and i have money to get a new camcorder is there anything i can do? and i have video making in a month my sis's wedding
    What model camcorder is it? USB footage is usually rubbish, and unless you have firewire (also known as i-Link or IEE1394), you're going to be extremely disappointed with the quality. Sorry.

    4). How do pro video editors like when u go to party's and the dj play the music it sounds soo RICH in the cameracorder... ?
    Is that even English?

    We're mostly from the UK, but thanks for the greeting anyway :-P

    You have to understand that video editing (or viditing as I call it) isn't something you can just pick up in a few minutes. You need to put hard work into it if you're going to get anything remotely decent. . Try messing around with Windows Movie Maker first and see what you get. But in all honesty, unless you've got a camera that can output DV, your quality will be a load of rubbish, and you won't be able to do a thing about it. Unless you invest in a decent quality analog convertor.

    Anyway, have a good presidential weekend yourself (whatever the hell that means :-P)

    You have a lot to learn, my young padawan

    Right, before you start learning how to get the music to sync together to the video, you're gona have to learn the basics.

    Have a read through this:

    http://desktopvideo.about.com/od/editing/a/whatitis.htm

    And don't skip any sections. If you rush through them, you won't understand it. Set aside some time to do it. Like I said, it's not (usually) something that people can pick up on straight away.

    sorry, i didn't read ur post properly...so pinnacle studio didn't work but adobe premiere pro did...

    well if u can't get pinnacle working try something like vegas, avid xpress pro ($$$pricey) but if u don't have a lot to spend there is a free editing software on the avid website thats supposed to be real good.......

    sorry i haven't been much help

    We can only help you so much. It's not a case of "oh you need to do this, here you go".

    Pick a software package you want to use, then have a look for books about it. We're more than happy to help, but we're not full time tutors! Help with little things and bits of advice yeah, but we can't tell you everything there is to know.
