    Video editing software suggestions

    Hi Guys and Gals,

    Just wanted to get your suggestions on video editing software. Basically looking maybe into getting the kids to do light editing for (Junior school children).

    We have CC3 windows XP network.

    Since the Specs of the machines vary(Pentium 4's and core 2 duos with a mixture of 1gb and 2gb RAM) in the ICT suite something light would be better suited to maybe start out on editing.

    That or i have suggested to maybe purchase in the new financial year some media editing capable machines.

    All your guys and gals input would be greatly appreciated.

    you could try videopad its not free but does a good job and is basic enough for the kids
    free trial available and also it works after the trial but with nag screens

    Video Editing Software. Download Free Video Movie Editor

    they also have some free stuff for you to use
    check the downloads section

    It's practically unusable though and certainly not suited to primary kids! This was mentioned about 2yrs here but unfortunately barely any progress has been made and it's still a very buggy, crashy alpha product.

    To be honest, i'd just stick with movie maker initially until/unless they get more proficient.

    Just to give you an update.

    In the end I deployed, Movie maker and Photostory. I also bought the serif suite with some licensing for Movie plus. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    If you're into some serious video editing than go for either Adobe Premier Pro or Sony Vegas. Else search google for easy to use video editors.

    Yes, Movie maker is the best option for the starters as it gives all the features required at the basic level, most important is that it is available free of cost. For windows 7 it is not built-in but you can install it free.
    VCD cutter is also a very easy & useful software just for cutting and merging the videos.

    I had gone through the post. There are many free video editing software's on the Internet. Video editing software is application software which handles the post-production video editing of digital video sequences on a computer non-linear editing system.
