Video Editing Software
You can't just connect your video camera into a computer and start editing your videos. You need video editing software to enable you to do it. Video editing software consists of application programs which can handle the editing of video sequences on your computer. Most programs are able to import and export your video images along with cutting and pasting portions of video clips. They also let you add special effects and transitions to your video.
Some programs can encode the video, allowing you to create a DVD. Many programs have the ability to let you edit the audio that accompanies your video or will be able to synchronize the sound with the picture. When you are buying video editing software you must be aware of your own technical skill. Some are easy to use and some are increasingly technical. If you are new to the process you should purchase a lower end one for now until you increase your knowledge base.
Some video editing software programs come free with your camera or editing card, while other programs can cost over $1,000.
