Hi everyone, who could share some valuable knowledge with me please. I am interested to get into video editing, I play piano and study composition, I have a digital camera and I would like to make videos for my compositions. The thing is that I have no idea at where we are in the capabilities of the technology. I have seen Hollywood can make films like star wars which is mostly video effect based, and Dr Who etc. But I imagine the technology here is not for the home hobby/pro user. I'd like to perhaps use my camera to take a video back drop of the white cliffs of Dover and add to it, PIP I think the terminology is, how capable is this? Is it possible to superimpose another real person in live video motion, into another live video etc., or is it just animations etc.?
So I have the trial versions of Corel video studio, Cyberlink Power Director, Sony Vegas Pro 13.
I only have a regular Windows laptop (NOT APPLE) fairly high spec, running Sibelius 7.5, Cubase 7.5, Finale 2014.
Could any one give me some advice please, some links to webpages for info, what software is the most capable at all price ranges, what to avoid etc.
Please help me your my only hope!
