I go to school for filmmaking, with a focus in editing and sound. We use Apple's Final Cut Pro 4 for our digital projects. We also learn Avid systems for other projects. For a consumer, nothing beats Final Cut for the money. Yes, the program costs $1000, but it is so advanced and user-friendly, you really cant beat it. It rivals most professional non-linear editing systems. Even hollywood is starting to edit with it. (Walter Murch, who edited Apocalypse Now, American Graffiti, Godfather films edited Cold Mountain with Final Cut). I don't work for Aplle or get endorsed, I am just an extremely satisfied user. I also used some Pinnacle products, had had quite a few problems, a frequent one being the audio and video going out of sync. I have no problems with my mac and final cut.

Being a newbie at video editing I got Video Explosion based on the Sonic Factory engine. I do have Premiere but not a clue how to use even a quarter of the utilities it has. Is Final Cut for Mac's only or is their a windows version?

fcchief, Final Cut Pro is for Mac's only. I wish they would have made a version for PC, but what can you do. If you're really into video editing, its worth the price of having to buy a new machine as well as the software.

Final Cut is just amazing, there's no better program. Pinnacle is pretty good too for casual users. Premiere is great, but has a very steep learning curve (as most Adobe products do).

conjuringtom:

are you sure your camera has the capabilty for USB or a firewire?
what i mean is, is there a little slot somewhere on the camcorder where you can plug in a USB or firewire cable.

if so, are you using a firewire? i found with my camcorder (JVC GR-DVM76U) which is a Mini DV camcorder, i needed to get a firewire to transfer the video files.

maybe thats the reason it didn't load properaly (sp).

as Mercury said:
if you are gonna do alot of video editing, like for amateur (sp) movies and what not, it would be an investment to buy a Mac.

as somehting else,
if anyone is looking for actual visual effects,
ex. bullet time, sprays or any kind of effect like that,
i recommend alamdv2, it is SOOOOOO easy and it is pretty cheap for waht you get (about $90). YOu can upload 1,000s of plugins (effects) in about every catagory. it is what im using now for editing my films.

hope this was helpful to you!

i read through all of these posts, but still have a question. When you open a dvd into your computer you see the audio_ts and the video_ts. Even though the audio doesnt have anything, the video files are huge. Is there any programs that i can use to compress whole dvds into like say an avi format or an mpeg file because normally their like 12 or 13 gigs....and my computer gets real muggy when i copy them is there a better way? thanks -pb_05-
