I don't like Youtubes editing software, can anyone recommend another free or cheap video editing program that's easy to learn, use and effective?

I'm wanting to edit some of my footage into short demo videos for my website and promos

Have you seen that video I did on the crb? We did that with a 10 buck app on a iPad in about an hour.

Torrey, I don't have an i phone, i pad or i anything, so that's why I started this thread.

Steve, I really don't want to drop $100 on video editing software right now, my slow season is kicking in, so I'm trying to prepare for that.

You're in the US, and in JUNE your slow season is kicking in?

$100 is extremely cheap for video editing software. The real stuff is thousands. I spent $600 on my iPad, and it's one of the best investments I've ever made.

Think about this. HARD.

I made this video with movie maker in about 25 minutes. I think it is good enough

I was looking at an iMovie tutorial the other day. I don't have time to get into the learning mentality right now, way too much is happening. This winter it might be nice to play with some. In the meantime, I'm getting as much video and pics as I can.

Adobe Elements is the basic version of their more advanced creative suite. Most of the functionality, at a fraction of the price.

Martin, that's pretty decent. Will Movie Maker let you lay some music over top of it?
Yes, it does I don't know how to use it yet i just used the functions that are no brainer and came up with it. Like you, when i have the time to play with it, I will be able to do better transitions, music, voice over and what have you. I mean I'm not a Videographer I just want people to see my real world results in a decent video

I can get it for free, but I was told it's complicated to learn, and I'm not up to learning new tchnology now.

Martin, I think I have Movie Maker on my computer, is it ez to learn?

My county loses 50-60% of our population in May every year.
I don't need to think hard, doing video's is not a big priority right now, just something I'd like to do.
For every $100 I have, there are about 10 different places I would sooner put it, most of them being marketing avenues.

I have windows movie maker and it was very easy to learn and use. There are several videos on youtube that can help you figure it out and learn how to use it. Thats how i learned how to use mine.

Good call, I'm playing with it now, if I can figure out a few more functions, it's going to be perfect for what I need.

Thanks to all who posted here!!
