    Hi dudes,

    What do you think is the best home editing software? I like Windows Movie Maker but I find it a bit basic. I remember a few years ago having some software made by Cyberlink I think, which came with my VIVO graphics card, and that was pretty good but that will be well old by now.

    Any suggestions? Reps for any useful posts :)

    If you are looking for open source free software try. its powerful and is comparable to some expensive related software.

    Jahshaka

    Jahshaka is a video and film compositing, editing and special fx system that uses OpenGL & OpenML hardware rendering to give operators real time interactivity. The system is cross platform, and also includes full CG, paint and image processing modules.

    I came across one I really like. Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD or MPEGVCR.

    http://www.womble.com/

    The DVD version costs $99 which is high but it lets you edit a stream (like cutting out commercials) without re-encoding which means minutes instead of hours to clean up a recorded show on 2 hour DVD. It can also re-encode to most formats. Typical to slightly faster than other tools I tried when re-encoding.

    If you do a lot of work with DVDs it is worth the extra cost.
