Movie Editing Software...
We, for many years now, have been using windows movie maker in order to do all video editing in school. However all of our cameras now record in mp4 format onto SD cards. This means that all the pupils/staff have to run their files through a converter first which is time consuming and also causes space wasting on the network.
We also have problems with movie maker - we find that it will regularly crash if a user has got files in their collection that have long, complicated files or a file name with symbols such as underscores in it (regularly found on the net).
we need to find some software that is stable to run on both xp and vista and also is relatively cheap. Ideally we wouldnt want less functionality than movie maker (shouldnt be difficult). We would like it to have the ease of movie maker with the possibility of slightly more advanced stuff for the more ambitious kids and staff.
What are you guys using? What do you recommend?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
