I want to get a video editor, it doesn’t matter how costly it is because I want to shift my video editing skill from Windows Movie Maker to a professional program. Tell me which one to go for. I want the easiest yet feature rich product.
Lightworks is a easyish, professional and best of all open source video editing app. http://www.lightworksbeta.com/
I honestly think you should go with CyberLink PowerDirector 9. I have no video editing skills... except for something simple like on windows movie maker. But, ive created two videos so far of my friend dry firing a bb gun(one of a rifle, and another of a pistol), and the videos look nice with just the special effects i put into them. http://www.cyberlink.com/products/powerdirector/overview_en_US.html
Hello, TMPGenc is pretty good. Now it has a new name TMPGEnc Master works. Here is the link:
Any thoughts on CyberLink's PowerDirector? As suggested by ezuk, Corel VideoStudio Pro X4 is also pretty well recommended by some review sites.
Corel released VideoStudio X4 a short while ago, and it's a lovely app really. I can't say if it's the very best one, but it's what I currently use.
Also, Avid have some interesting options -- there's Avid Studio that is supposed to be very good:
They're pretty much the industry leader, so they might be a good option.
iMovie is the best value, consumer ready video editing package around for 99% of peoples needs. Of course, you'll need a Mac.
Honestly you won't find any professional program that qualifies as "easy"...
The only options I know of are Adobe Premiere Pro or one of the Avid Products.
Adobe Premiere Pro
Avid Home Video Editing Products (2nd link is a feature comparison)
Avid Media Composer (the profession version)
