    Default Pinnacle

    I just picked up a copy of Pinnacle Ultimate to go along with my new GoPro camera. Here is a link to the tutorials for Pinnalce so you can get a sample of what it is capable of. Best of luck.

    I just used Windows Movie Maker to do this video.
    It's easy to use and does a pretty decent job.

    If it's not on your computer already it is available as a free down load.

    Once you try a Mac, you will never go back. iMovie is very intuitive and all the software needed is included. The final product can be quite polished if you do your part. If you have access to a Mac you should take advantage of it.

    Yep, Windows Movie Maker....
    I know there is better movie making software, but this is what I've used mostly.

    Default corel videostudio x2 pro

    been using using it for the last year after an upgrade from videostudio 9. will do everything you want and is very stable software. I have used pinnacle and it locks up quite a bit. I think I paid about 50$ off of amazon.

    If you're attempting to watch a video on the net (such as YouTube), it could be because of your connection. YouTube has the Red thermometer that shows how far in advanced the video has loaded, as well as the current playback position.
    If the playback icon and the red line are catching up to each other; hit pause and sit back a minute. This is especially prevalent on High Def videos with slower internet connections (slower = 1-2mb/s)

    If the video is choppy with a video on your computer (something you created, downloaded, or imported from your video camera). This is almost surely associated with computer speed and/or memory.
    The most economical solution is to max out your memory in the computer. This will almost always speed up the system, and can usually be done for a 'reasonable' expense. I say 'reasonable' because the alternative is a new computer.

    Good luck!

    I'm not a great movie maker by any stretch; but I do enjoy piecing together pictures or clips. I've had the pleasure of using both Windows Movie Maker and Apples iMovie.

    They are both simple, fairly intuitive and make quality movies. Since they are included with their respective OS (in most cases), I would HIGHLY recommend FREE, play with it, see what you like what you dislike, then pay for a 'higher' end release if either should not meet your needs.

    Good luck!
