Thread: same boring question

  1. #1

    Default same boring question

    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.

    Please help.

    I've used Pinnacle and Sony Vegas. I would not use Pinnacle as I found the software to be to "buggy". I like Sony Vegas and currently use it.

    Thank you for the reply Midnight Blue.
    Here's an update. I have downloaded and installed the trial version of Avid. It has just rendered/converted an avchd clip into an avi. This particular clip use to crash Adobe PE7 all the time. However there were some issues.
    My screen kept going blank and then came back on with a warning that my graphics card had shutdown, or something like that.
    Here is a copy of the error report.Capture.jpg

    This might be easier to read. Any ideas on what this means and how to stop this happening?
