Video editing software under £100 recommendations

Feb 10, 2012
On behalf of my contact they are kindly looking for an all-round video editing software package after their old one got corrupted where they were unable to get a free replacement license.

Basically it will be used for a mixture of importing footage from camera but as well doing video game playthroughs taken from PVR and from a gaming computer. It needs to have good wide range functions for video but as well good for doing some audio editing and possibly multicam.

The issue is that they only have £100 to spend and they are currently trying out the trial downloads on numerous them.

However they are kindly asking if any racedepartment users what under £100 video editing software do they recommend and suggest trying out?

Feel free to highlight the pros and cons and what makes one particular software better than the other to at least paint a picture.

I suppose most people (like me) rate Sony Vegas pretty highly, but it's pretty expensive.

They do cut down versions (Movie Studio) which are pretty fairly priced. So much depends on what you are doing with you video, but Sony do have Trial versions available. The Movie Studio 13 Suite has an audio editing module(s)




I have and older Vegas Pro, so you may class me as biased, but I find it pretty easy to use, and there are absolutely tons of you-tube tutorial videos out there. I like the multi-track time line editing. This is probably the most commonly used editing method for all the software out there.

I haven't tried Pinnacle Studio, but that's another possibility. I don't think they have Trial versions though.
