Don't worry, you are excused. To make videos you need some editing software like Adobe Premiere. Most of these programs cost money though... if you want a free alternative then you have to stick with the most hated Windows Movie Maker :P

If you want more info you may try to read the Unofficial AMV FAQ (link below).

if this is the wrong section im so sorry


Well, this probably should go into the Video Software Help forum ;)

My recomendation if you are just starting out is to purchase a pinnacle system. They are the most user friendly. However some of the cheaper ones don't output so well and you can expect to spend at least $200 for a system easily. If you buy a pinnacle system make sure you have a video camera with a DV port or you've just purchased a $200 coaster.

software piracy isn't exactly encouraged here at the .org but as long as you don't tel anyone they'll never know the difference *shifts eyes* of course since your getting it off someone who bought it you will have the access to the manual which to my understanding is a major help. but hey i'm just a pathetic WMM user so what the hell do i know.

Bill Gates attempt to divide and conquor the AMV community. also known ass Windows Movie Maker or that pain in the ass iMovie wannabe. I swear that WMM is like a bare skeleton compared to iMovie. I know a guy who uses an iBook and we used it for a school project.

Just so you know, WMM and Premiere are not the only two editing packages out there, just two ends of the spectrum. (Free vs. Expensive) There are programs that fall in the middle of usibility vs. price, a good place to look is the software reviews off the main page. (http://www.animemusicvideos.org/legacy/software.php) Admation Personal Studio for example is a good program for under $50.

I personally use a combination of programs since each have their plus and minuses. I do a lot of prep work in Virtualdub (free), AVIedit ($25), and I use a MGI Videowave/Dazzle bundle pack that came with my computer to export to tape and capture tape footage. Premiere only comes in late in the project for me.

I don't think starting off with downloaded footage is so heinous either, but if it's Divx Premiere is going to hate it, just to give you a heads up. Take it into Virtualdub and save the portions you need in a friendlier codec like Huffyuv.
