The Most Popular Video Editing Software Packages
About Editing Video
So, you have shot some fantastic video and are pleased with
what you managed to capture and the depth and quality of your
subject matter. Whether you realize it or not, you have only
completed half of your video project. Now you need to edit
the video you shot to cut out anything that does not have
an impact on the scope and direction of the video. There was
a time where only professional video editors could afford
(or knew how to use) expensive video editing equipment. These
days all you need is a computer with enough memory and storage
to house the video you are editing.
Video Editing Software
Some of the most popular video editing software packages
Adobe Premier. This suite is popular because it integrates
so seamlessly with the other Adobe software so well including
Photoshop, GoLive and Illustrator. The software works
on any Mac or PC computer and creates a professionally-edited
video with myriad title templates. It also allows users
to burn their edited video directly to a DVD if they are
using a Mac.
Avid Express. Probably the second most popular and respected
video-editing program available to professionals and consumers
alike, Avid Express is the real deal. It is Avid's only
video-editing software and creates extremely high-quality
video cuts. With video, audio and color correction capabilities,
Avid Express is one of the most comprehensive programs
of its kind.
Final Cut Pro. Arguably the top dog in video-editing
software, Final Cut Pro is aptly name as it is the top
choice for both consumers and pros alike. Though it has
a fairly steep learning curve, consumers will find no
better tool for pushing the envelope with their video
editing. Mac users can purchase Final Cut Pro HD to edit
high-definition video for the ultimate professional look.
Pinnacle Studio. Unlike Avid Express or Final Cut Pro,
Pinnacle Studio is fairly intuitive and easy to use for
those familiar with typical computer functions. A user-friendly
interface allows anyone who can drag and drop to edit
video. Users can also jazz things up with dozens of scene
transitions and title effects. It also allows for the
addition of music and basic correcting.
Sony Vegas Movie Studio. The folks at Sony know consumer
video and they know consumers. This software allows for
basic editing including adding music and title and scene
transitions. It is not for professional editors and generally
good for those with only simple editing needs.
Cheaper Video Editing Options
If you are strapped for cash and do not need a really robust
suite of editing capabilities, you may also want to check
out some of the open-source video editing software increasingly
available online. These are frequently free or cost very little
and may give you what you need while you look for the software
you need for more complex video editing.
All the software mentioned here can produce great, professional
standard results. All of them will easily import audio and
