    Nothing is wrong with Windows Movie Maker but it is a basic editor. Emmanuel wants something BETTER than Pinnacle studio. WMM doesn't fall into that catigory.

    ...apart from the instability! On testing WMV produced the best quality at low file sizes, and is very easy to use, used to be you needed a degree in premiere - the learning curve was steep on the full ver.

    Re: What to buy for a video editing computer

    i didint bring up ilife (dr_dos did i think) , as i stated in an earlier post i didnt want to get into a discussion over mav vs PC no ones a winner, im stressing like urself to buy what the user needs and just highlighting some of the problems with it!

    go for mac if thats what you want! but ill highlight we dont have much fun using macs for video, well users dont anyway! but there pc people with macs being dumped on them from the powers that be!

    if you know the mac platform id agree but if your a windows person stay windows, purely for ease.

    You can also buy a Sun workstation for that money with dual-core opteron processor and a shed-load of RAM

    Run Windows on it and say, "look at my bautiful Sun workstation," to your friends!

    If you are going to ferret the machine away and use it as your everyday machine as well as for video editting you should really go for a machine you're comfortable with and can perform your daily duties on. I have a PC at work but I have a iBook too. My network is Windows based buy I want to add Macs. I couldn't operate as easily on a Mac... I'd have to have even more terminal server sessions open than I already do (average about 4 at once but I've had 8 or more before now!).

    BTW - The rumblings out there say that Bootcamp is a bit of a con... not all the drivers work correctly and therefore you only have limited device functionality - forcing you to use OS X more! A clever ploy to ween people off Windows. If you are going toi buy a Mac... use OS X since it's better anyway (this is being written on Firefox in MacOS X Tiger on a 12" iBook G4).

    My recommendation would be to use a free cloud editing site like Memplai.com. Its free and easy to use. Best of all it has a collaborative feature that allows you to invite others to participate in your video project. You don't have to download anything, there is no storage as its all on the cloud. They have a mobile upload feature so participants can upload directly from their iphone's right into the video project.
