Video editing software?

Journal Entry: Wed May 21, 2008, 12:12 PM
Hello everyone,

I hope all is well on your side of the screen! Due to my lack of any activity I thought to do everyone a little surprise (which I am right now spoiling, so it won't be any surprise at all, but I need your help). And so, can any of you guys advise me on:

1. The best screen recording software
2. The best video editing software (that would allow me to add captions to selected parts of the video etc.)

(those would be preferably easy to use and free ;P)

Any (prompt) help would be greatly appreciated. :heart:

Camtasia Studio 5 works the best, IMO. You do need to have a pretty decent computer if you're planning to use it in full screen, however.

Now get on recording, and teach us how to make those rich skin tones :D

I know this entry is kinda old, but I thought I would put my two cents in.

For editing software I use Final Cut Pro or Express, or even Adobe Premier. Professional studio style programs, kinda pricey but if you are in school you can get a pretty big discount on them.

If you are using a Mac, iMovie is like the baby Final Cut, and it has an option for titles, logos, and credits.

Hope this helps! Miss your updates!

Pinnacle Studio is easy to use for video editing... I think the latest version is about $100, but you can get earlier versions (like 9 or 10) for under $20 or $30 on ebay and I've used both and they are great for editing and adding captions, music, etc. Better than Windows Movie Maker, but not free! :(

I bet this is a bit late but I just discovered your page and saw this. For anysort of hight quality titles or movie editing in general if you have a Mac you should get Final Cut Pro.

Marta, come baaaaaaack :cries:

Miss you.

Did you manage to find a good screen capture video? I'd love to try it, but I guess it would only block my computer :ohmygod:

Oh well. :glomp:

Hey dear <3

Yeah i got the software. I'm just very silent since I am currently working full time (not art related though) and barely have time for anything else than work + sleep :(

I absolutely promise to show something soon. In fact, I have some stuff sitting and waiting, but I wanted to do an artwork with video recordings first :) I'll try to complete it within a month :( I miss you guys!

I understand you, hon :(

My fulltime job also gets to my nerves, since I have lack of personal/social life now because of it (well, most of my social life exists only here at deviantart =p) and not much time to do the things I like.

But not everything is bad, right? :D

Hope, and I'm sure, you'll handle this new rotine :glomp:
