View Full Version : Video Editing?

01-20-2012, 11:32 AM
So, I haven't really done much video editing, but I'm working on a small project and need something more versatile than VirtualDub. Most of the systems here are Windows based, but we do have a few macs and Linux systems as well, so platform isn't an issue.
What would be a decent Video Editing suite to allow some basic edits, like splicing in power point slides (or just images), adding intros/outros for the videos, etc...

Lightworks is free. Might be a bit overkill seeing it was used in productions like 'the King's Speech'. ;-)

Still, a very powerful NLE at a ridiculous price.

Sony Vegas is a good program with friendly interface!

Lightworks -- I'd forgotten about that one, but I'll be definitely giving it a try!

It depends for what you need? For some simple things, CyberLink PowerDirector...I think you can download trial.

My current project is pretty basic. I have some video recordings from a conference that I'm needing to redo the footage by adding in an intro and outro to each piece and I want to replace some of the video footage with the actual slides created by the presenters so that the information is more readable.
These will then end up on a youtube channel for others to watch. So, pretty basic beginnings.

Lightworks would handle that easily! :D And its free too.

Yeah looking at the features of LightWorks. Looks interesting indeed. I just noticed it has quite a bit of audio features. Something I enjoy about Vegas. And the video side looks very impressive too. Think I'll give it a go. I wonder how intuitive it really is compared to Vegas.

I haven't found Lightworks to be very intuitive, but its interface is a bit different than say Vegas or FCP. That doesn't mean that once I get used to it I won't go 'oh this makes sense'. But I'm not there yet.
