Does anyone know of a free
- and I mean not a red cent -
effortlessly downloadable video editor
AND HERE'S THE CATCH:
...that lets you export finished video files?
WMV, MOV, etc...anything uploadable to
the bloody youtube?
Aaah, 0-budget life...
Anyone coming up with a quick solution for me,
gets 5 stars on every thread, political support etc
for a good while...
My advice is to use a free/dedicated video editing program such as Avidemux (which I used the last time I had to cut video files up) for cutting and splicing and then find free/dedicated programs for the other stuff. I also used Freemake for the last video I had to convert but since it was only one file I can't say it really is great, but at least it was fairly easy when I used it. To be honest I'm new at it myself so I can't really say what is good and what is not.
All you need to do is be able to verbalize what function you are looking for, use Google, Youtube, etc to search for a site that offers free software on that topic, and then download it on a machine at home that doesn't have anything too critical on it.
Playing $100+ for a professional video editing program (that tries to be like a Swiss army knife of functions) when you are just starting is crazy. I imagine you could find a torrent, and maybe get it for free, if you wanted to but what help would that be if it is difficult to use and clunky because 98%+ of the program are things you don't need or want to use.
While it sounds like a hassle to download and install maybe a half a dozen to a dozen free apps (like video converter, video cutter, video splicer, video down loader, etc) for each thing you need to do, the job often goes faster and smoother when a smaller ap has to crunch numbers (the 'Pro' aps assume you are using a machine where resources are never supposed to an issue, and if it is then it is your problem) and sometimes the learning curve is a little easier as well; at least for the newbie user.
