  • Good, Easy Video Editing Software

    Hi all,

    I'm looking to cut out a few minutes of dead time from a video, and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction in regards to simple editing software.

    I've tried the current Windows offering, along with the Flip Video one, and also Adobe Premiere, but couldn't get them to simply cut a bit out, and then join the cut bits back together - trust me, I tried.

    For some reason, I recall Soundforge being able to do that, but after trying my version (8) it won't import video.... therefore, any help would be much appreciated !

    Sony Vegas Studio

    cheap, easy and powerful
    I've done airshows, music videos, commercial videos and even a 2-hour multi-camera theater production in it.

        REAPER can do it if you load the necessary codecs.

        any video editing program will do this. Windows Movie Maker, Adobe premier. You're probably trying to use it like an audio editing program (soundforge) But it works differently. Watch a tutorial to see what you are doing wrong.

          I would recommend Vegas. It is easy to use and there are lots of tutorials out there. I make machinima and that is what I use. My background is more 2D graphics and coding. I found Vegas very easy to understand and use. Of course that's on Windows. MACs have a built in one.

            I use both Vegas and Final Cut Pro, and Vegas has the edge for combining power and ease, but ski219 is right. Any video editing program will allow you to define two edit points, select the region in between, delete, and join the remaining clips back together (with the option of a cross-fade of any length or a butt-splice).

              Hi there, I work for muvee (the creators of automatic video editing software), and muvee Reveal X will let you cut out clips and join them with a simple click of a thumbs down for the portions you dont want. Depending on file type, we also just released Turbo Video Cutter which is strictly for trimming HD videos and stitching them back together. Both have free trials. Hope that helps! http://www.muvee.com
