    It's that bit of string time again......

    How much can you spend ?
    If the answer is pence rather than ponds then MM (v.2) is probably the way
    to go.

    Then how 'deep' do you want your hobby to get ?
    If it's just editing holiday films and your kids growing up you probably
    don't and won't need anything more complex than MM - but if you are a
    budding Hollywood film maker then you probably should be thinking of
    something like EditStudio or Vegas.

  5. I'm absolutely not an expert - just family videos. I've bought Ulead's
    VideoStudio Version 7 and I'm delighted with it. Very easy to use. See
    http://www.ulead.com/vs/features.htm

    Another bigger seller is Pinnacle's Studio Version 8. See
    http://www.pinnaclesys.com/ProductPage_n.asp?Product_ID=577&Langue_ID=2
    I tried both and preferred the feel of Ulead's VideoStudio but it's
    obviously down to personal preference.

    I'm using Windows ME so apparently I could only use Microsoft Movie Maker
    version 1. I didn't like it the feel of it. I've never used it but I
    understand that version 2 is very good.

    If you are new to video I suggest you try trial versions from magazine
    cover CD's. The magazine called Digital Video Made Easy is good for
    starters. And ask all your questions in this newsgroup as there are a
    whole host of friendly and knowledgeable people here - I'm friendly but
    not knowledgeable!!
