What do you use for video editing
Looking for a little advice. Need to get some machines for Video Editing. Got the PC's spec'd up but am having trouble settling on the software.
Ordinarily I'd use Mac and iMove HD, but the budget only allows for max three new machines and there are already two PC's in use. We (teacher, head and myself) came to the agreement that five working PC's are better than two top spec Macs :(
But what software to use on Windows? I think I've got the list down to three likely candidates...
Sony Vega Movie Studio 9 Standard
Cyberlink Power Director 7
Adobe Premiere Elements 7
Ideally, I'd like something as close to iMovie HD on the Mac in terms of interface, ease of use, and features. Reading .net reviews currently put Elements in the lead - seems to be the closest to iMovie I can find.
Does anyone have experience with any of these programs or suggest other alternatives that I might like to check out?
