Looking for a good video editing software


I have a GoPro Hero 2 camera. It comes with a very basic version of CineForm which doesn't allow adding music, stringing together movies, or clipping them among other limitations.

I have tried Windows Movie Maker but the resolutions it saves to are terrible.

I'd like an easy to learn software that won't break the bank.
I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 desktop running 4G of RAM on 32bit XP Pro.

This looks intriguing:
CyberLink PowerDirector 11 Deluxe

This may help. http://www.real.com/resources/free-video-editing-software It reviews free video editing software and explains what features to be looking for. It should help you choose which software will be best for your needs.

5. Free

Take a look at GIMP, it is open source free version akin to Photo Shop.

7. GIMP's good, but it's not video-editing software.

As you stated, it's image-editing software that's comparable to PhotoShop. It's great for editing still images, but I don't think it's good for putting full-motion videos together.

I haven't done much video editing, so I can't give good recommendations here.

6. I use CyberLink PowerDirector 11. I can't praise it enough.

It's the easiest product I've used in a long time.

I love the frame count feature which allows editing to be as easy as copy and paste.
I know it's 49 bucks but well worth it. Makes many other products seem like toys

(No..I have no personal "doings" with Cyberlink)
