Looking for guidance from the folks who shoot video. Some months back I bought a video editing software called "VideoPad Video Editor" from NCH software http://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/index.html
. While it works for me, I am looking for other options. I do not do any professional stuff - mostly "documenting" stuff like storytelling sessions or the once in a blue moon hawk fight etc. Nothing that gets me money. But that is not the point. I'd like to know what you guys use on the windows platform. Yup! My name is rpt and I am a windowsaholic!
OK, to the serious stuff. What am I looking for:
- What kind of video shooting do you do? Wedding, Sports, News, BIF, Cheeta sprints - etc.
- What video editing software do you use?
- Why you like your video editing software?
- What are the cons for that software?
I have been using Audacity http://audacity.sourceforge.net/
for sound editing - have converted many LP records (over 50 with another may be 75 or so to go) to digital form using this open source software. I think it is great! It is free and guess what? It never crashed on me! Ever! And mind you I am on the Windows platform! OK, so the question:
Is there any decent open source program for video editing?
I guess this is it. Look forward to your informative responses. I have got many for my questions on this forum.
Thanks in advance
