On the foothills of vid mountain

I have achieved the first stage of my journey up Big Vid Mountain!

A&E's Technical Guides to All Things Audio and Video almost brought me to tears, but not QUITE. I really hope that I don't actually need to do anything about Highlander's funky mix of Interlaced and Progressive, 'cause I've got no clue what that would be.

I now have a full 23 seconds of video and audio in "Windows Movie Maker" for my very first vid. No effects. No transitions. All the clips are from one episode so far.

But, hey, I still feel pretty good! Baby steps, ya know?

Welcome to the world of vidder!

I have never used Adobe Premiere even it's said to be VERY powerful. Well, I guess it's true if you're an user of Photoshop. Unfortunately, Premiere does have rather high requirement to PC, and uses lots of EMS memory when running. Probably not feasibile if you try to edit TV series.

Ulead is very user-friendly and good to new user. But it also uses lots of EMS memory. Anyway, it's still highly recommended for this really fancy tool!

I'm trying to switch to Vegas, however, since it's also powerful BUT has less requirement to PC. Even it's almost dreadful that you've to set a lot of things when first using it.

Hope you enjoy the fun of Vid maker! ^0^

I was looking into Adobe Premiere Elements 2.0(the $100 version). I can already tell that Windows Movie Maker ain't gonna cut it.

Cut three frames before the beat? Speed up the clip just a tiny bit? Try a cool masking effect? *laughs weakly*

I'll look into Ulead. Thanks for the tips!

Good luck! I can't wait to see the fruits of your labor.
