Documentary projects: what software?

Edit your videos. Upload them to the web. Burn blu-rays and DVDs. Colors look odd maybe? Fix'em in post, then!

Documentary projects: what software?

Postby FoxAdriano » 16 Dec 2012 12:39

Hi, I usually use the software for documentary projects about indigenous peoples around the world. I don't need to share my projects. I usually make 30-45 minutes projects with 100GB of clips. I'm looking for a software easy to learn and with very friendly interface. Repeat: very friendly and easy to use. In your opinion is better Edius, Avid or Vegas? Thanks lot for your suggestions.

well really any of software product for editing should be relatively easy to learn. they all tend to work in a similar way, drop i video clips, you have a timeline, add effects, cuts, crossfades, titles, fade in and fade out.

I use Sony Vegas, but the others you mention should be fine too.

you can download i think almost any software for a trial period. why not download 2 or 3 and see which of them just appeals to you most.
