    So Plain and simple i Bought a new Video Cam (Sony CX380, nothing crazy) In the past i did all my editing through windows movie maker and i think its time to upgrade a little. let it be known im no pro.

    Id like something somewhat user friendly, but im not a complete idiot when it comes to computers. I also don't want to spend 50+ bucks on software. $20-40 rage would be nice.

    This software would be for editing family video and Footage of me bali flipping now and then so i don't need anything crazy, im not making a feature length film here :manganr:

    Thanks for the help Devils! :thumbsup:

    It would be a shame to invest any time in a program of this nature if you chose poorly.

    I would suggest going with one used by many of those making movies more elaborate than you see yourself making now.

    Someone makes a program called Smoke they were giving away a while back (what does this program do again?). Final cut pro is nice, but I have done most of my stuff with Adobe Premier. I was using that on a PC for a long time. Now that I have jumped ship to a Mac, I downloaded Smoke but never really tried it(Why? Does it even edit video?). Instead uninstalled it planning to get Final Cut. Then I found out how pricey it was. Maybe Smoke is not even a program.

    Instead, I have been trying my hand at this:

    Either you will really enjoy the process and WANT/NEED to have a powerful computer with the right software...or you will bore of this video editing thing quickly and this whole discussion will be irrelevant.

    I can get Premier through work (just checked because of your thread), so I might go that route after all. Lightworks has been pretty straightforward in the little fiddling I have done thus far.

    If you really just want to cut clips together, and you already have WMM...that is actually not so bad.

    What's wrong with Windows Movie Maker? I use it all the time to edit my um "videos" It's great!! Sometimes it's the content not the editing.

    Final cut here also. A slightly older version is better imo.
