    Video Editing

    Post  Pky6471 on Fri Feb 15, 2013 8:36 pm

    Any of you guys/ girls/ AC-DC do video editing for fun... I know big Dave has a lot of knowledge about this. What is the easiest software to use for non-pro. I watch some Utube clips using Sony Vegas, very impressive. The bottom link recommends Cyberlink Powerdirector, for the price and home use , maybe that's more than enough. I just bought a Sony HD camcorder PJ260V, very impressive quality , true HD 1080i using AVCHD format (quality of Blu-ray), the problem is even the most advanced TV won't recornize that format...yet, so you have to play AVCHD videos thru a HD media player or play on your computer (Windows 7 supports this format) and hard-wired your computer to a HD TV...

    Any more I only know apple stuff. Avchd is easy to convert in Mac pro stuff but I just don't know pc stuff at all. That said, Sony Vegas is tops, lots of pros use it.

    Thanks BIG Dave. Sony software that I downloaded from the Sony website can easily convert AVCHD to other lower quality video format via Windows-7 based computer. No doubt that Sony Vegas and Adobe Element are tops for video editing, but I found that CyberLink Powerdirector also has more that enough features for me to use. Just like everything else, we just have to get used to the software... Game on....
