Looking For Simple Video Editing Software

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Dave Kingston, Dec 25, 2004.

  1. Hi

    I have a TV capture card that allows me to record to my hard drive. I would
    like to burn some of the stuff on to DVD, but first I was looking for a very
    simple (preferabley free) piece of software that can help remove the
    commercials. Any recommendations would be appreciated

    If you're using WindowsXP you can use the built-in program called:
    Moviemaker.

    However much depends on what format you're capturing in: dv-avi is the
    most editable (supported by the most programs), mpeg-1and mpeg-2 are
    more difficult but: www.pegasys-inc.com provides a free version of:
    TMPGEnc for mpeg-1and a trial for a number of days for mpeg-2. It is
    an encoder, but has some functionality in editing.

    Capturing in another format (mjpeg etc.) may provide possibilities
    for: VirtualDub to edit. Good luck.
