Well I knew the time would come. The time when my budding 12 year old asks me for something computing that I know nothing about. He has asked me , or ordered me as kids today do::bigsmile: that he would like santa to be delivering some video editing software for his PC. Does anyone have any idea what he is talking about? Now I know we have windows movie maker and I think this is great, unfortunately he looks at me and says "parents no idea", so in order for me to baffle him with science, has anyone any suggestions of what I should be looking for. I think he wants to make films, and clips from games like runescape and world of war craft.:Sad:

Check out Adobe Premiere Elements, it will cost you around £65, it's is a cut down version of Adobes professional editing software which costs £650. It easy to use and has lots of hand holding tools. It can make videos for DVD's, You Tube or even your phone. It really is user friendly and the best introduction to editing that their is. And if they want to get really serious later then this software has them heading in the right direction.

There are plenty of reasonably priced editing packages out there, Pinnacle Studio, Adopbe Elements, Ulead's Videostudio to name just three. I use Ulead MediaStudioPro 7 but this is a high end, semi pro level package (currently up to version 8 but its $400:cry:). Ulead do some trial packages of their software and I'd suggesat you have a look at their VideoStudio and DVD factory.

Magix Movie Edit Pro

Can't praise this editing suite highly enough. I've used it in several versions since about 2000 and it just keeps getting better.

It costs £60 (plus £3.00 shipping) for the boxed package and £58 for the downloadable version.

It's pretty intuitive, but there's plenty of help should you need it.
Go >>Here<< if you want to find out more.

Cheers,

It is important to remember, though, to use the cellotape on the inside of the tape. If you put it out the outside then you could damage the video head. :roflmto:

Ive been using editing software for a few years, both professional at work and the packages aimed at the home user.

Personally I wouldn't recommend Pinnacle, I've used Studio from ver 7 through to ver 11 (just for it's auto movie feature) and IMHO it's over-priced for what you get.

Adobe Premier Elements is a very good purchase, it's vey easy to use and it's easy to step up from if you want to advance to Premier Pro or Final Cut (Mac). Check out Adobe's web site, you can download 30 day trials of all their software.
