Video/Movie Editing Software!

Postby JereFuzz » Sat Aug 19, 2017 9:39 pm

Hey folks,

What video editing software do you guys use for your videos (music or other types)? I downloaded the free VSDC and am super impressed with the workflow. Previous video editors I've used (and another I downloaded) were not nearly as intuitive. In about 5-10 minutes I uploaded 2 videos from two different sources (nothing I filmed just mp4s and avis) and a separate audio file I created. I added some fx and did some cropping on one video and left the other one alone. Everything was stretched to sync with each other. Super easy and I didn't use any tutorials. What do you guys use? Any recommendations? I'm going to see if WAX FX can be plugged into VSDC.

Here's an example of what someone did for VSDC:

So, this sort of thing is my day job.

For free software that is incredibly full featured you should be checking out Davinci Resolve. For years it has been the world's most widely used color grading system, but a few years back it was acquired by Black Magic design and they have turned it into a full blown NLE and Color System. FOR FREE (up to 4k output). And what's even crazier that have just built in a huge DAW for audio and they offer a free and fully compatible composting package called Fusion - which has been used on tons of major hollywood features. Seriously, if you are interested in making things, this software is too good to pass up.
Resolve here: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/produc ... ciresolve/
Fusion here: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/fusion

It's got it all. Editing, Color, VFX and Audio.

Go get it.

And commercials.

Let me know if you need any help navigating Resolve. I have been using it for a few years.
I am just now trying to get my head around Fusion.

So horseblanket, what kind of video projects are you working on? Any interest in the upcoming Kodak Super 8?

You know, super 8 is cool and all and I used to shoot a lot of it but it took me a while to realize I like big cinematic pictures so my tastes in cameras has gone in the other direction where I want full frame and nicer glass. Super 8 can be a great effect but I really love 35mm. Pm'd you about my projects.

I use iMovie and I always have problems with the audio drifting. I can't really recommend that at all.

I did this for a bit in high school/college but the only programs I've used were Final Cut and Avid Media Composer which are both pricy and difficult to learn. Resolve seems to offer quite a bit for a free program though so I'll second that suggestion.
