Hi, I haven't really done much editing before. I'm looking into doing special effects on my video. I'm a graphic designer with some interest and undeveloped skill in animation, so I was wondering if anybody could reccomend a program, or simply a way of ripping frames from a video for editing. I know that such a barbaric way of editing could return redicoulos results. But I just want it to explore my skills in realistic animation.
I can't find anything like this on google or anything, so help would be much appreciated.
Also, if anyone can recommend some good freeware (if there is any) program(s) that can help with special effects and editing.
