Well I finally got a video camera so it's time to start making some movies. The only problem is that I don't know what to use for them. I have the Windows Movie Maker, but I'm not sure that I really like how it operates. Is there any other suggestions out there for people on a budget? I saw one program that sounds decent,, anyone have any experience?
Also when I put my film into full screen the picture is VERY grainy, is there anyway to fix this? I am using a Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 if that helps

If you've a good budget try Adobe Premiere it's probably the most used one on PC and the most complete and I used it for 3 years.

If you aren't very serious, and you just want to make some cool movies of you, your friends, and family then I would check out Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0. It is basically a watered-down version of Adobe Premiere Pro. Also, Premiere Elements costs $99, and Premiere Pro costs $849. You can also try out either one of these software packages at Adobe's website. Here is the link

I have also been looking for something easy to use just to make some fun movies--so Premiere Elements works pretty well for more of a budget driven software package? Is it much more advanced than using something like Nero?

I have never used Nero for video editing (didn't know they even made that), and I have never used Premiere Elements ofr editing either. I would assume that Premiere Elements would be a better package. I am sure it borrows a lot of the same technology that Premiere Pro uses. Also, if you decide to one day take you editing further, I am sure the move from Elements to Pro would be an easy step, since they most likely use a lot of the same tools.

I am thinking that Premiere Elements looks like a good place to start learning how to do some video editing without spending much money. If anyone has used it, please let me know how well it works...Thanks!

I have used Movie Maker and its a simple program and may be a good way to just get started , I had some problems with quality till I read this guys site and he has info on all kinds of stuff about video good thing to bookmark and use when you need it.
