I did a little bit of video editing at uni and used Adobe Premier. Was pretty good but had a tendency to crash at the most inappropriate times if you gave it too much to render.

There's also Sony Vegas which seems fairly similar but I've not used it much so can't really comment.

I used to use Premier, but haven't done any editing for ages.

Final Cut Pro.

Power Director - Really good but Memory hungry
Pinnacle Studio - Not as good as PD, but still a gd program, yet again memory Hungry
Windows Movie Maker - Really good basic program

SONY VEGAS... but set a side about 10 hours to perfectly edit a half hours vid.

I use Premier Pro and Final Cut Pro combined with After Effects.

Prepare to lose a lot of your harddrive, 1gb is about 3 minutes.

Being an avid editor for years ...................edited load of avids .
Used loads of editing programs and there are some good un's .
I have Sony Vegas 4/5/6 and the Movie Studio Platinum Edition [Amazon £24.99] , Serif Movie Plus 4/5 and the new X3 version which is very poor . Versions 4 & 5 are really good and easy to use with a good intrface . They dont print directly to DVD . No big deal though ,there shipped with Sonic DVDit which is really good and again easy to use .For capture I use Pinnacle 9 , never had one bit of trouble with it and it captures first time , every time with no dropped frames .Theres one other I have started to use .........Win something or other because of the special effects which are stunning . It will only render to a file ie ,avi /mpeg ,but there easily converted for DVD's .hth.

Kinda video editing, any of you ppl know of any good free chromakey programs?
Thanks.

I use pinnacle studio but i wish i hadn't. Converted loads of old 8mm camcorder stuff to 50gig files onto pc, edited them, now crashes when trying to convert to any format. Hate it, lost motivation to finish my stuff off now!

Do you use the same PC on the internet ??

I use 3 PC's for editing ................not connected to the internet ..........NO anti-virus ,No anti-spyware ............and nothing to slow the processor down or use up system resources.
If your capturing footage and you've got anti- this & that working in the background , I think you will get problems ............I did and that's why I'm using stand-alones .
