    Default Best LONG form video Editing Software?

    Hi all, I am new to this forum - I was wondering if there is a really good editing program for long form videos? I shoot a lot of church services and events and sometimes the videos can be 40 mins-to an hour in length. I am shooting in HD1080 and with multiple cams. Can someone direct me to a program that can handle this? I am using a PC (very new, with 2gb of video RAM, 12GB RAM, and Intel core I7. I have good specs on my computer, I suspect the editing program I am using just can't handle what I am putting into it. I am currently using Pinnacle 17 ultimate and it stalls and loses sync often with long form vids. Short form no problems. Thanks for any advice!

    Would transcoding for editing be an option for you?

    Your pc seems ok to me

    i would suggest looking at adobe premiere pro in your case - it doesn't crash - excellent multi-cam support - etc

    You mention multiple cameras. What codec do they record? This will play a role unless you don't mind transcoding. But in my opinion the best NLE for long form is Lightworks. It is made for that and has a long and successful history in editing Hollywood films, which are long form. They have a free version so it's easy to check it out. - Filmproduktion und Videoproduktion in Graz und Wien
