I am just getting into video/audio editing and am a bit confused as to what editing software I need.
I have a 6' x 6' treated sound room in which I plan to record video with voice-over quality audio. I have recently purchased a high-quality Equitek condenser mic which will plug into a Tascam DR-60 on which my Panasonic HDC-TM90 consumer level HD video camera will mount. I will then transfer video and sound files to my workstation using a card reader and then sync the audio and video tracks using Plural Eyes by Red Giant. And this is where I am now stuck.
I am not sure what is a good video editor (I know of Adode Premier and Cyberlink Power Director) and separately what is a good audio editor (I know about Audacity).
The video will be simple, mostly a static head shot of me or me at a blackboard. It is the audio which needs to be voice-over quality and so I am not sure about using two stand-alone programs (audio and video) and their ability to work together. I see the Power Director Suite has an Audio editor, but not sure if Audacity is better. I'm very familiar with computers, but no editing experience. What's got me a bit concerned is I paid $79 for Plural Eyes which only syncs audio files with the video track and it seems that any good video editor should be able to do that or am I wrong?
All suggestions and comments very much appreciated!
