    Best program for editing video?

    I have videos from my son's basketball season, and want to edit 8 games down to one highlight dvd for the grandparents. My video camera is a Sony with a hard drive. What's the easiest program to use for this? Thanks!

    Adobe Premiere is one. I don't know if its good or not- It's the only one I've used.

    Final Cut Pro is the best.

    iMovie is the best for simple family videos.

    Only for Macs though...

    Adobe Premiere is what I find the best.
    Sony Vegas isn't bad either.

    Comparison of video editing software - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Might be a place to start - look for GPL software for Windows and you might find something useful.

    Nero is what I use. It will take some learning, the navigation and help that come with the program is less than most people expect. I just google any questions I had and found the answers that way. Once you get the hang of it it is really pretty easy to use. In other words you second editing job will be much quicker than your first.
