I am currently in a Compotition for CBC, and I was assigned to the task because of the "excelent" job I did on a movie about our trip to Japan (I see to many flaws). http://video.google....460712442157518
Yah and I did that in movie maker. as you all know it crashes to much and is basic. I like it but there is to much on the line with this project I need to use a reliable program. well actualy the prize value is like $31,000 so its alot. Im only in it to win a Grey Cup ticket for my bro. (like over $25000 is for actual showing on the TV)
anyway I need to make a 2-4 minuet movie and I Need a Video editor like a trial even, I need it to work and have some customization uses. Like text placement and such. I run a Win XP, 256MB DDRAM, 3 GHz, Celaron.... yah that is basic, yah integrated video card. so I need it to run smooth

I have tried the Pinnacle 9 software but i find it crashes quite often so i have given up on it. If you can afford it you might look into the Sony Vegas7 software. A friend has this software and it creates fabulous movies from what i have seen. Bad part is it's cost of nearly $530.

Well, i just got lucky and bought Vegas7 + DVD Architect 4.0 for $160 off Ebay. It's my Christmas present to my wife who has been crashing along with pinnacle and windows software.

It always seem to take the software companys some time to develop the technology to where it works without any problems. Microsoft took 3 years to bring out XP then immediately had to make a service upgrade to fix the problems they later found. Same thing applys to video editing software. Its price versus quality so early products will always be buggy until upgrades are installed. I've downloaded 8 pinnacle upgrades and it still crashes. The sony software was done right by programmers that already had some experience and it shows in price and quality.
