    Video editing software

    Starting my Christmas shopping list, my sister tells me my nephew is wanting video editing software. Since I know nothing about it, what would be a good package for 13 year old? Will be used on a Windows machine.

    thanks in advance

    This is really a how long is a piece of string question. Adobe premier pro is probably the standout for a pc but it is expensive and may be challenging for a 13 year old to learn (although adobe does publish a book called "classroom in a book" that would be more than enough to get him up and running)

    these days however there are plenty of powerful and easy to user tools. I have user pinnacle before and found it ok (but that was several versions ago) It seems like cyberlink's offering is popular. I haven't used it, but I found their dvd creation software ok for basic tasks but overly simplistic with restrictive menus.

    really it depends on how much you can afford, what the pc it will go on can handle and what he wants to achieve out of it (over and above what you can get out of windows movie maker for free)

    I've always liked Vegas which Sony bought a number of years ago. It was my choice until moving to a Mac for all the video processing I do.

    After several years with a Pro lic I got one of the mid level licenses and it's all most people need. Vegas is particularly good for sound and granular control because the product has its roots in professional music production software.

    The Sonic Foundry roots make Vegas great for lots of sound track options and making royalty and copyrights easy.

    I was pleasantly surprised to learn Vegas and Sony creative apps are still developed and supported a mile from my house in the US.

    I use my Canon Camera to capture video files but I failed to play it on my Mobo player it plays the video in black/white and some weird color. I knew it was due to compatibility issues. Then my friend suggested me to use Canon video Converter. With the help of this powerful Video Converter, you can convert and play any camcorder videos on your portable player.

    Re: Video editing software

    Do you need equipment only for making videos? Or do you want to find a quality equipment for watching too? I can recommend you to visit a site where I found useful information about such equipment for me https://www.infomir.eu/eng/products/iptv-stb/mag420/ . I think you can find some information for you there.
