I saw this question
, but I think I might need something more. I have a Kodak DX (something) camera, and it has a video mode, which is OK for what I want - taking video of martial art stuff, and posting on youtube. But I want to do more - edit them down, maybe add audio, effects, etc. I'm a little unsure exactly what I want to do. I'll probably find out as I start. So feel free to ask if something is not clear.
Also, I want to be able to work with different formats as needed. For example, a friend gave me a DVD that he took, but the format was something I hadn't seen before.
So, what is a good package to use? From some brief reading, I thought about Adobe Premiere, but have not seen very favorable reviews. All recommendations are welcome, as is general information I might have overlooked ("You do realize, you'll need a new Fractus Bi-modulating Polymerating card, of course!"). Thanks!
