  • need software help

    Does anyone know where I can find free or cheap video editing software for windows platform?
    I have been transferring old VHS to DVD and I need a way to trim the clips for posting. The microsoft movie maker doesn't work good at all. Thank you in advance...

    Have you google searched? Scott has been wrestling with this too, using a klunky old handheld video recorder with a line plugged into the computer so he can record to DVD while it plays, a real drag when you've got a stack of family recordings that go back 20+ years.

    For anyone wanting to convert without necessarily editing, here you go.

      If your just talking about a few clips, to transfer, you can try aiming your cell phone at the tv while the vhs player is playing. With a tripod and a quite room, you can get surprisingly good results this way. Pirates do entire movies in a movie theater this way. Kind of a "Low Tech" Solution.

      Once the video has already been converted to MPEG or some other format, I have used womble DVD wizard myself to trim out commercials or cut out parts unwanted for some TV shows that I have recorded, I may be able to help in this area, please feel free to send me a PM.

          So I was doing my semi annual Klout check and ran into this, click to go to that cool video editing site.

            I will since I went with the free VSDC video editor and have had to learn a whole new lexicon to decipher its use, (its not for dummies) its taking me awhile but I'm getting it. Thanks again for all the help!
