Hi there, I realise that this has been asked plenty of times before (a quick search proves this) and the answer is very much dependent on personal taste and budget etc, but..... (here goes nothing).
My camera is a Canon hf100
My computer specs are as follows;
OS; Windows 7 Ultimate
CPU; iNTEL cORE i7-920 2.67 GHz
Motherboard; Asus P6T Deluxe V2
Memory; Corsair XMS3 6GB
Graphics Card; Sapphire ATI HD5870
Hard Drive; 2 times Western Digital 1TB
PSU; Corsair ATX 850W
Case; Cooler Master 690 II
Cooling; Zalman CNPS9900 LED
So the question is, what video editing software would be the best to run on my pc given the above specifications?
I had a copy of Adobe PE7 before I built this computer and I am using it although it is not Windows 7 compatible. However it keeps crashing. I have read poor reviews of PE9 and so I am hesitant to purchase this.
Some companies do allow a 30 day trial but how will it affect my machine installing/uninstalling various video editors?
I have narrowed my choice down to Pinnacle, Avid, Sony or Correl.
