Its not cheap, but i bought sony vegas for the media studies suite. Its rock solid and stopped the teachers nearly have a breakdown trying to use movie maker.

What's wrong with movie maker? If you are thinking it isn't on windows 7 you can install it seperately

What version are you using and how stable is it? I've had v2.0 on my computer for a while and just waiting for v8 to arrive.

Still using 2.0 with no issues - will probably look at upgrading in the summer.

Advice on Video Editing SW
Have been reading the posts here, but was wondering about a replacement for Movie Maker (free please!) for our school.
We have just purchased some fantastic new video cams, which use a memory stick to store the video files. But they are MPEG, and Movie maker doesn't like them!
Any ideas on alternatives please....

why is it, that people will pay thousands of pounds for shiny new computers and cameras but refuse to pay for software???

VideoLAN Movie Creator looks like it will be the perfect Windows Movie Maker replacement (once it is released that is) since it will support all the formats that VLC Media Player does and will also be free.
