I hate to take attention away from the fantastic conversation going on below, but I wanted to reach out to you for some insight.
Please recognize that I am a complete novice with most computer items, particularly items of the multimedia genre. So, you may need to be a tad more simplistic and detailed in your replies — can you offer ANY advice related to digital video editing?
Basically, I have multiple digital video files from various sources and I would like to take a stab at EASILY cutting and editting it into videos for the internet. Additionally, I would like to be able to easily overlay voice/audio into the final files. Can you share anything about software packages that could help with this?
Of course, there is a preference for FREE (basic) programs…but, I would be willing to pay for the right package if it is worth it. Any little tips or advice would also be very much appreciated.
Thanks so much for your time!
