I recommand something that has full Pro functions like Adobe products, Avid, Ulead etc

if the editor takes time to learn the program, it can be just as powerful as premiere. and for the price, it's a no brainer. magix=win for any budget editor

There are reasons why Pro programs are expansive. I doubt any of us here actually uses all the functions inside Premiere.
Magix is great for beginners I guess, steping away from Win movie maker and stuff, and actually uses a time line.
Magix doesn't have many simple "click and go" effects. Most things that you want to do you have to create yourself, which takes some time and patience. It's only "half-assed" if that's too much work for you.
Magix is simple and easy to use. And not too much of a drain on your resources. I'll open it sometimes and leave it open for a week or so, with no ill effects. From what I've heard (though I've never tried it myself) that's a big NO in Premiere.
For the price, you will not find a better program. My version, Magix Movie Edit Pro 11 cost me $25. Go look at the prices of Premiere, Avid, Ulead, etc. And having those doesn't guarantee you a good video. Your video quality will ultimately be based on YOU and not the program.

sagarajack wrote:This is one of my Observation: Most of the videos here are the "clip+sync" type projects, the music does 90% of the work, the editing does 10%. there are exception, and I have seen them, Ileia's burst Angel vid was a good one.

So, I assume that if you do not pirate professional soft, you will have a lower chance of being a successful AMV maker.

Kalium wrote:You'll find that most of us place far less emphasis on effects. We generally find that the meat is what matters, not the icing over it. We don't find effects inherently good in an aesthetic manner. Rather, we find that composition is a subtle art, and one that is apparently over your head.

Kalium wrote:You have one farking strange aesthetic, pal. It's at odds with 90+% of the site. We happen to think that composition matters a lot more than where one places a lens flare, and that it takes more skill and ability to get right. Limitations on the form are what bring creativity out. There's a reason Shakespeare wrote sonnets instead of blank verse.
Kalium wrote:Actually, I'm fairly certain the former is wrong. However, in absence of any good definition of "successful" and any hard numbers, there's no way to tell. Your assumptions about motivations generally do not seem to apply. Most of use aren't here with some strange ideas about being famous or similar.
