Best software for video editing

For anyone who is poking around in search of a good editing program for video, Andy Dickinson has done your homework for you. In Part 3 of his series on video editing software, he covers super-cheap or free software for Windows, Mac and Linux. Educators, take note! Do-it-yourselfers too!

His conclusion:

I have to say there isn’t much out there that can beat iMovie or Windows Movie Maker as a flexible free editor. There certainly isn’t anything out there that can beat Avid Free DV, for all its problems.

Earlier, Dickinson wrote Part 1 about video editing basics (VERY informative) and the big names in the business and Part 2 about less-famous software that will get the job done.

If you’re wondering who Andy Dickinson is to tell you the real deal, well, he edits TV programs when he’s not busy teaching digital and online journalism at the University of Central Lancashire, in England.

Thanks, Andy — this is a very nice package of posts.

Thanks for the links. I’ve been thinking of upgrading my video capabilities, and these posts helped out quite a bit.
