Video Editing Software

    I am looking for advice/opinions on the above. I am looking to
    purchase some software for converting/editing my digital camcorder
    recordings to DVD.
    My main requirements are:
    *Compatibility with .MP4 and .MOV formats
    *Ability to create funky DVD menus
    *Quite extensive editing features (beyond trim/crop)
    *Must have more functionality than Windows Live Movie Maker...
    I have looked at Cyberlink and the Adobe Premiere offerings and would value user feedback on them as well as on other options.
    *PC not Mac
    Thank you very much. Please don't let me down, TESsers.

  3. Adobe premier is the software of choice by a lot, but expensive. Premier elements is good but not sure if your can convert to DVD as I'm mac all the way. Final Cut pro is to die for.
     
  4. Expensive? It's really cheap! unless you're referring to premier pro? I use Premier Elements 4 and will be upgrading to 9 very soon. Very unstable on an MSI though if you're not installing locally and you'll need a nas rather than server if planning to have students doing a lot of editing at the same time. If you want to go all pro style, then Adobe after effects is the way to go (Im not sure how much experience you have with editing???), needs a 64 bit OS though and rendering is slow. Other than Sony Vegas is good for all round linear stuff. You can check out some student editing on my website
