Hi all!

Just a quick question about which video editors you use. I allready have a few converters, but no editors, (which means i can’t cut the ads out of the stargate atlantis I taped……Wink)

My Criteria:

MUST!!!!! be compatable with win 7 64-bit

Resource hunger isn’t a problem, I can (and have) run 3 converters side by side on my 4GB RAM system

Hopefully an option to join segments also

And free hopefully Cool

 

Thanks in advance everyone :)

I don’t really do much video editing, but some converters include some basic video editing.  Since it seems like you mainly want to crop out ads and stuff, try iWisoft Free Video Converter.  I don’t remember where I got my copy though.  I’d try searching this site first before googling for it.

thanks for that locutus, but i’ve been having problems with format factory. When I convert to a supported .mp4 to put on my ipod, mu ipod complaines about not being able to play it. Where do you find the option to convert to ipod automaticly, as the artical claims? I can’t find it, but that might just be me.

 

Karen, thanks for that, i’ll definately have a look at it.

 

At the moment, I have winX DVD ripper, and format factory. another, rather annoying thing with format factory, is that when I convert the .vob files, there is a 2 second lag between something on screen, and the sound. Currently only winX DVD ripper has fixed this for me.

 

Anyway, i’m not saying format factory is bad in any way, i’m just saying i’ve had a couple of teething problems.

 

EDIT: is there anyway to include subtitles? does recording from a TV even capture them?

Under Video, click “All to Mobile Device”.  It’s the first thing in the list. 

Select your mobile device from the list.  For instance, my phone is a 320×240 resolution screen (I believe) so I would select that.  It has presets for iPods about halfway down the window on the left.  Select either 640×480 or 320×240 and see if it works.  If it doesn’t, try the other one.

I think you’re looking for something more like Avidemux.

Hi! Smile

I haven’t needed to do much video editing so haven’t used these. Cnet lists only 3 video editors which work with Win7. They are iWisoft Video Converter, SolveigMM Avi Trimmer 1.6.912.18 & VideoPad Video Editor Basic 2.06.

Avidemux 2.5.2 does not work with Win7. Try to avoid FormatFactory since Secunia Personal Software Inspector 1.5.0.0 shows it as “end of life”.

I really love Sony Vegas Pro.  There is a 64-bit version of that, and it almost certainly works on Windows 7.

Any comments? Questions? Outbursts?

thanks for the tip pwnana, byt Avidemux 2.5.2 broke my video! :o (well, actually it plays the sound in the end version at 2X speed)

Also Avidemux 2.5.2 doesn’t let me convert to ipod format, it breaks it, and I have to re-convert.

I like WinX converter/dvd ripper, but the converter playes the sound at a 1.5 second delay, unacceptable for close up shots!

Locutus, how do you cut video segments out in format factory? I select the segment, and press ok, but it does nothing. Would you be able to help me out?

Ramesh, thanks for that list, i’ll be having a look at thoose, and i’ll report back what they are like.

Refpunk, i’ll have a look at that too :)

Thanks for all the help guys :)

 

PS: as a side note I love that secunia is shortened to PSI XD (it stands for planetary security inteligence in HALO ;P)

Video Editors is a category where free can’t really match commercial. Frown

@Pwnana:  Odd thing is I have old versions of two of those video editors from the second link.  Which ones?  The #1 and the #2.  Corel Somethingerother Pro X2 and Cyberlink PowerDirector 7 Pro.  Or maybe 8.

Oh, the site that was :(

Sorry about that. I went as per the html link of Cnet which said Windows 2000/XP/Vista

If your looking for just a video splitter, I’d recommend the trial version of Allok Video Splitter.  http://www.alloksoft.com/splitter.htm

 

And is supposed to work on Win 7.

 

I needed a video splitter for a job I was doing for a client, but didn’t want to spend the $$$ for a one time use.  I tried about 3 or 4 (including FF) which didn’t do a proper job, mostly the problem came in with re-encoding the part I wanted to cut.  The rencoding messed up the audio sync with the video.

 

Then I found Allok Vision Splitter.  The trail version will allow you to cut the first 50% of your selection.   So what I did was double my selection to get what I wanted cut.

 

And it didn’t re-encode the selection.  You may not need to worry about the re-encode part since you want to get rid of the ads.

You probably got them from freebies then.  There was also a Magix Movie Edit freebie posted a while ago.

Finding a free video editor will be a challange. You may easily have to settle for something that comes close and has some after effects that you might not like so much. Like bad cuts in and out, or an audible click, or something like that.

Yeah, I got the PowerDirector as a freebie.  Never liked the Corel… but it was on major sale so no worries there :D

I have used PowerDirector for a long time. It may be more than what sean is looking for in performance, the amount of work it would take to do the task, and in cost.

It is a very good program for editing though.

Haha, that’s for sure. i got the audio synced perfectly, then realise both ends were out of sync XD

 

I’ll have a look at that. thanks :)
