  1. Hey all,

    I was looking into getting some video editing software beyond the likes of simple programs such as windows movie maker. I would mostly be using this video editing software to edit gaming content I've recorded.

    Also along the lines of video editing software, after I'm done recording a video, the file sizes can easily exceed 2gb. Does anyone have any recommendations for video compressing software?

    My friend uses Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12 for all of his video editing needs but this program is $100 which of course isn't too bad compared to other software but is still pretty expensive for just video game content.

    Let me know guys.

    Movie Maker is probably the best free editing software. Anything else is mediocre IMO. I like After Effects/Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas but those are very expensive. If you just want compression software, use Handbrake. If you want Video Editing Software, look into Lightworks or VideoDub.

    Handbrake should only be used if Movie Maker or other doesn't let you specify the output parameters enough. Adobe Premiere allow you to do this.

    Is Handbrake bad or something? Lol.

    Well, you're re-encoding, so there will always be some loss in quality. Also, Handbrake is pointless to "shrink video file" if you have Adobe Premiere and you can specify all aspects of file output - including bitrate.

    In the past I had use ULEAD Video Studio and today they're merged into Now Corel VideoStudio Ultimate X6. But the current Movie Maker from MS free works okay not that fancy but it's free.
