In the $50 range are two really good options. Both are geared toward the novice. Adobe Premiere Elements, and Sony Movie Studio Platinum. I have used both of these in the past, I went with Sony. Both are excelent and provide lots of tools and stuff for editing and posting to Youtube.Alright, windows 10 came with garbage video editing capability. What is a decent video editing software for around $50 that I can use for my youtube channels?
+1 on this. I have VideoPad and eventually paid for the full version because I liked it so much. My 10 year old son was able to use it himself after a little bit of instruction. I absolutely love how it works and have made a half dozen movies with it.I am a big fan of the VideoPad suite. Try it for free. The personal use upgrade is worth the small cost to me.
Sony Vegas is a nice product. I do want to check out the Davinci deal. It is all about doing what you need, but having more capability is not a bad thing.I have created over 100 videos using Microsoft Movie maker, and then W10 (ala W8) came along, and all of those files no longer will pull up. The readable content are the text boxes I added, the rest of the video, including the scene change effects were wiped 'black.' So now, I am starting a new channel, one geared more for trucking, and I need a nice editor with a decent selection of effects and music capabilities...
I will be looking closely at the Sony editor listed above. My daughter wants Sony Vegas, and she says that the Sony Movie Studio was pretty good too! Thanks all for the suggestions!
Now go download Dashware; https://www.dashware.net/ for free so you can add telemetry data from your altimeters to you video. Once you time that right in dashware, you can then pull the resulting video back into movie studio and add all the effects, music, etc so on.I picked up a copy of Sony Movie Studio Platinum 13, and so far it is pretty easy to use... but then, I am using a beginners guide video I found on youtube. Otherwise, yeah! Love it so far. No videos yet, but I'm working on it.
