Which program for me? [split]

Postby eyzi » Wed Aug 10, 2011 5:43 pm

Hi. I want to make my first AMV but I don't know what program to use. Can anyone recommend me a good software?
As much as possible, I want a software that supports FLAC and MKVs, a software where I can put the whole season in it then I'll just cut clips afterwards, and not much laggy.

Thanks. :)

There isn't an editing program that I know that can do all of what you want there. Also, it's worth mentioning the site code of ethics when it comes to downloaded source. That aside, it's also a bad idea to try to edit with x264 encoded files unless you/the encoder used some very specific settings when compressing the video. You can lose your work in the middle of editing otherwise.

There's a decent list of editing programs over in General Video. The general recommendation is to try the trial versions of a few different programs to see which one works best for you. If you can't find a FLAC plugin for your program of choice you'll probably end up turning your audio into a .wav file.

Program lag is more a problem with your computer's hardware than it is with the editing software.
