Video Editing Software

#1 Post by Highplains_Sailor » Tue Dec 17, 2019 3:37 pm

Hello,

Currently I use the Video Editor software that comes with Win 10, and I also have Windows Movie Maker. I've noticed that Movie Maker occasionally makes my monitor black out for a split second, which I've read is most likely related to drivers being incompatible as Movie Maker is no longer supported by Microsoft. The Video Editor is okay but I've been thinking about getting a third-party video editing program and was just wondering what programs you guys may use for your scope videos.

Thank you for your input.

Joe

Hi Joe,
I'm no expert here, but I asked some colleagues at work and the reply was Magix, deluxe edition, not necessarily the newest version. This is what i use not and I think it is quite good and not too difficult to learn. There are also a lot of tutorials on youtube. The simpler versions have some severe limitations and are not recommended.

I use shotcut, It's free. It can be downloaded from here: https://shotcut.org/. Nice instruction video's on YouTube as well.

Hello,
also try Virtualdub at http://www.virtualdub.org/index
Its free and quite powerful, quite a learning curve though.

Gave Shotcut a try and for what I want it is perfect with lots of file formats supported. I have old version of Adobe Premiere Pro which also does the job but does not support the newer versions of movie files.

Many thanks for the heads up.

I was wondering the same thing. I use W10 and have colour accuracy issues plus I can only save in jpeg (that I can find, anyway). Just want to capture camera images and vids accurately with little editing required. Will have a look at those couple mentioned.

I second the Davinci resolve free option-it’s ability to adjust colours is excellent-its a deep program but you can use it simply as well for editing and rendering and go as deep as you want-hey KD Arvidsson-just be glad you don’t have the non free version that came with my camera-I went back to the free version-don’t think I need 3-D motion tracking and blue screen tools just to film microbes!

I make use of Joyoshare Media Cutter to edit audio and video files. It not only looks at editing but also focuses on cutting, converting, and merging. It's professional yet easy-to-use. What's more, a free trial version is given by it.

I use Corel VideoStudio. I bought the program when it was discounted. I also use Paintshop Pro, which is the Corel photo editing product. By the way there is an excellent free screen grabber program called FastStone capture. I use it to save and early process my images that are generated by Camera in Windows. You can also grab frames from your videos to make them into stills.

I use FFmpeg. Its free and many of the video editors you know are based on it. You can do pretty much anything with it, its really good but has a bit of a steep learning curve.
