Hi. I'm a complete beginner with video editing. I've recently recorded a 7 minute video clip using a 1080p camera. It records in .MOV file format. There are various parts of the video which are boring but rather than cutting them out completely, I'd like to be able to speed up those bits like a time lapse. I'm not sure if the software will soften the speed transition from normal to fast or if it just switches, I think a slight acceleration and deceleration of speed will make it look nicer but hopefully the software can do that for me. I don't mind what format at the video is saved in as long as it's a reasonably common format and preserves the video quality.
Can anyone recommend such video editing software to do this? I don't expect to be doing much video editing software in future and currently only need it for this one video. However, if I do end up doing more in future then it won't be much more advance than this so really probably is just basic software I'm after.
