Welcome to the Org!

"Best" is subjective, what may be the best for one person might not be the best for you.
The editing programs most people here use are Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas and Magix Movie Edit (and Windows Movie Maker...but I'd wager you're looking for something else). There are more (see this sticky in general video for a more comprehensive list), but those 3 are the main ones.

I'd suggest that you go and get the trial versions of those programs and play around with them a bit to see which one works best for you.

any video editor will get the job done.

. normally, whichever one you choose first AND play-with-the-most
ends-up-being the one you like the most.

. . you should not need a Graphics program that is very expensive
to "go-along-with-your-video-editor" because today, "most Video Editors ARE Graphic Editors"
unless you do not know what "channels" and "layers" are used for!

. . . besides, they're all pretty-much the same anways 8-)

. What you might need is a Video Conversion Program -- to make the files accessible to your editor. :beer:

Well i use Cinema 4D Conbined with after effects cs5 = Some amazing effects i also use premiere pro cs5 and vegas 10 pro but in my opinion Affter erffects is way better than any other editing software also you have Nuke and Avid Media Composer i have them and they are harder to use.

.. interesting little one here; CyberLinks - PowerDirector Ultra

I've kicked this one around, a bit, and I'm becoming impressed with
what it can do!! It's about $29.95 in stores and well worth it for a
beginner thru intermediate editor.

.. Known problems:
DVD builders interface instructions 'Suck! :x

.. overall .. this win's as a New Editor Company for the 2K Software Finals :up: :up: :up: :!: :!:

Doesn't matter, as long as it's frame accurate, non-linear, and plays nice with the UTvideo format. (note: last I checked, WMM fails on the first two).

I still use Magix most of the time.

To tell you the turth all editing programs are the same. But if what you meant was which one has more features then Avid media composer 5 its around 2500$ and is used on the cinema industry really powerfull tool if you ask me its beyond sony vegas, premiere pro and final cut. Also you coould get autodesk smoke which is the one i use but well lets just say that is around 8k. and i dont think they sell it to a reguar person. you have to work for a studio or well that's what they told me since i got it from my studios.

well, if your looking for the best -free- stuff around .. then its a whole new ball game:

PHOTObie = free photo editor w/ layers ( I haven't figured-out how to do Transparancies yet!!! ) :up:

Mini Poster Razor = .. free and it makes these Image :sweat:

Acoustica Mixcraft v5.2 = free DJ Audio Maker ( keep those heads pop'n :asd: ) gotta have a Sound Track! :nose:

DDClipLE v3.6.9 = more audio tracks then you know what to do with & a video window for sync alignment. :amv:

t@b zs4 2005 = free Video Editor with transparancies and roto-scope/cutter. :beer:

.. just because its free doesn't mean that we ( those who have been here a while ) know how to use it! :shark:

I wouldn't say that all editors are the same. Some do things more faster and easier than other editors.

My personal weapon of choice is Premiere Pro CS5. I would pick up test versions of good NLEs like Premiere Pro, MAGIX or Sony Vegas to see which one suites you best.

OK .. then .. lets try this question from a different angle:
Which Is The Easiest Editor To Learn?

Rules are:
1) No FAQ researching ( newbe's never read those things anyways' )
2) No Pop-ups' ( unless your hovering-over a certain section too long! )
3) Easiest to Load and Go.
4) No Project Settings Changes ( everything defaulted and ready for use. )
and finally
5) Easiest to SAVE.

.. Ready ... ... GO!
