I would like to edit/produce better videos. Not professional level. Just better than what comes off the camera in MP4 format. Any recommendations?

BTW, Movie Maker is on my PC but its kind of crap plus it does not understand MP4 so its not a great option.

X2 on the Adobe Elements, I paid something like $100 at Best Buy for the program. Im still tinkering around with it to figure it out.

Thanks for all the pointers!

I will be using a PC because my work provides me a nice DELL notebook that they maintain.

Adobe Elements sounds like a winner. Hmm, should I get it combined with PhotoShop? I am thinking I could use that too.

Photoshop plus Premiere Elements: $110.

Premiere Elements: $75.

not sure how you got from my posts above that i'm a "mac hater" but i'm not a "mac hater" at all! i just find it funny that when someone asks a pc specific question, and a fanboi says, "get a mac!" i guess it's like that in wake. someone asks about an lf board and someone posts, "get a slingshot!"

I just bought pinnacle studio 14. Easy as hell to use and you can do just about anything without ever cracking the manual. 75 bucks.

Nice work duramat. What camera are you using for the water shots?

Here's some work I did with my Sony Vegas (non-pro) where I incorporated some green screen.

THANKS AKA! That whole vid was with my GoPro HD, Ive had a blast with it. Infact I use it pretty much all the time on the boat instead of the camcorder

Ive heard good things about Vegas, cool vid!

For windows a cheap alternative is AVS video editor. Under $50 I think, and it will handle most any video codec you throw at it and also has all sorts of output options. Easy to use too.

For a "free" alternative you could always set up a Linux dual boot machine and use something like kdenlive.

Been wanting a helmet cam for quite some time. I simply can't have every toy I want! ugh! The vid of your kid holding the camera while he jumped is priceless!

Vegas is pretty powerful. Maybe too powerful for the average user. I am hardly tapping it's potential. I do admit that I do not care much for the title builder though. It's cool but cumbersome. Movie maker's is better and way more simple.

I'll check out your vid when I get home Jarrod. I like to steal.... uh hum... see other's style!

Here's a deal on Adobe. I think it's the same you guys talked about above.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6&SID=FW9jh7ht

$69.99 after the mail-in rebate.

Can anyone suggest any sort of training or "how-to" book for premier elements? I am looking at getting it and just don't want to go in and spend a lot of time messing around with it. I am going to use it for my gopro, and my imovie software from mac won't support the 60 fps that I want to use.

you can find a lot of tutorials on youtube. otherwise, look on adobe's site.

Thanks Joe, will the Adobe be all I need to handle the 60 fps, and if i'm just looking to make fun videos for myself and friends?

Might be a little late for this thread, but someone was recently telling me and swearing by photodex. Anyone use that before? Comparison with Adobe?

http://www.photodex.com/

I plan on learning one of these soon, and just want to spend my time learning the one that's best/easiest and that I'll continue using for awhile.
