    Video editing software recommendations?

    Any thoughts?

    No, not super expensive professional stuff.

    Just basic, but decent.

    For mac.

    Your recommendations welcome.

    Thanks.

    been using iMovie cuz it was on my iMac. this model has firewire so it was a journey getting the right gear to import from my mini dv video cameras, and full size vhs. for that I got a new gizmo that converts from analog and outputs digital to firewire. very happy about that. of course iMovie accepts .mov files from my polaroid sport cam. doesn't accept avi files so one video camera content doesn't get used on the mac - that stuff gets edited on my netbook. I don't do a lot just little bits here and there.

    I've been making videos for Youtube and DVD for about a decade. I first bought what was then the latest-greatest in PC and video card power along with a mini-fortune in pinnacle editing software.

    But now-a-days the software that comes with your OS (or available free as a add-on download) can do all but the most sophisticated of editing. And whereas it was once difficult to get the video to the editing PC.... now everything moves through the cloud.

    Creating something worthwhile will always be time consuming. But this is no longer an expensive hobby.

    If was a PC would recommend Corel's video, but not Mac compatible. Another, (holding my nose) is Adobe Premiere Elements which is still sold independent of a subscription plan and buried in Adobe's site as they push the subscription plans which includes the very high end Premiere. It is available both PC and Mac, usually on sale about $50-70, not $99 regular price.

    Frankly, with a Mac, iMovie does everything basic. If it doesn't meet your needs then, like me, bite the bullet with Final Cut Pro. Like virtually all high end (and even lower end) video procssors, it does take a relatively robust computer. I use it on my MacBook Pro, but wouldn't even consider it on a MacBook Air.

    I don't live in Mac land, so I can't advise for that platform. I use Sony Movie Studio on a PC and I like it a lot. Very stable and robust.

    I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio, too. Love it. Don't know if it's on the Mac platform, though!

    There's always Final Cut Pro. It's the standard.

    And there's Splice, a freebie.

    Thanks for the recommendations.


    Yeah, iMovie seems very badly rated.
    Final Cut Pro too expensive for my needs.
    I'll check out this Splice thing you mentioned.

    Cheers.
