Hello all,

I hope I can get some advice re. video editing software.

My plan is to make separate videos performing a song using different instruments, then combining sections from each into one video with suitable transitions etc.
To maintain timing and synch I will use a click track through an earpiece.
I intend to mic the vocals and instruments into a separate recorder so that I can achieve a balanced audio mix to replace the audio tracks from the camera.

Can anyone point me to video editing software that is reasonably idiot proof but can handle the above. Not too expensive and preferably with a 30 day trial to see if I can handle it.

Thanks in advance,

Vintage

On Linux I'd use Openshot video editor, & Audacity sound editor. :)

(Both of which are free - FOSS - Free Open Source Software.)

Keith,

Thanks for the response, will look into Openshot. Free is always a good start point:)
Am already covered for audio editing with Audacity and Reaper.

What computer are you using? Macs come with iMovie, or can be downloaded from the Mac App Store.
