I'm very, very new to this site, and I need help with my editing software. Please, I'm begging anyone to give me guidence on what to do.
I have two good editing programs, but both are prone to crashing and are difficult to work with:
Pinnacle Studio 12: will not work with .VOB file extension, which is what I decrypt to; has multiple plug-ins, and is also prone to memory leaking
Adobe Premiere Elements 9: difficult interface, looks like terrible redering quality, complicated effects, and will NOT accept any itunes music
This is very disappointing, since I just got one for Christmas (the other is old).
PLEASE give me your honest opinions of what is the best software to use. I am not looking for anything professional like $500 Sony Vegas, but I am wondering if there is something out there from about $100-$200 that is not so touchy about file extentions and can handle several GB worth of video.
Thank you all SO much
LIVE YOUR ART. LOVE YOUR LIFE.
