    Hi all, I sure hope I am in the right place...
    I am working on some little videos and have been using the Movie Maker that is in windows. Not bad, easy to use, but am wondering if there is anything else that is easy, but more feature rich in terms of the effects that can be done in the video?

    I figured someone here might know. Any links to software companies worth looking at would be greatly appreciate. If it is a free tool, so much the better, but I know it might not be.....

    Thanks in advance. :)

    For video editing it would be the one a couple below this one 'Video Authoring and Editing,' but I dont think anyone will mind.

    I normaly use Vdub, Stoik Video Converter, and Pinnacle Studios.

    Vdub is a really good free video editing program.

    Stoik easily converts almost any video file into .avi or .wmv it too is free.

    Pinnacle Studios is a lot more pwerful video editor than Windows, with an easy to use interface, its about $50.

    Well I'm a student filmaker, and last week I went down to London to see post-production film houses.

    For the Home-movie maker, something like Premier is good, but pricey, I use it as well as Finalcut Pro for the mac. The major film houses use Avids, with various plugins such as 'particle' and 'flame'

    Windows Movie Maker is ok if you want to whip something up, and are not to bothered about quality or control. Personally I love FinalCut pro, but that is only for the mac. Close to that is Adobe Premiere (pc or mac) but again, they are pricey

    here are some links to cheaper options that might interest you:

    Edit Studio from Pure Motion might be your best $100 pure video editor

    Movie Edit Pro from Magix is geared toward home 'DV camcorder editing and burning to DVD' market.

    hope it helps
