I'm looking for an easy to use video converter and some video editing software. Something cheap (inexpensive) and easy.
Any suggestions?

If you're not using Super then what are you using ?

I use Pinnacle Studio. It's fine. Others exist, including this for nothing.

Oh.... Windows, naturally.

Actually I'm not using any converter at the moment.
The Windows option isn't an option since I'm still running XP.
I'll have a look @ Pinnacle Studio.

Thanks Mike.

Yep Super for converting, free and handles almost every format with a confusing number of options. Even change bit rates, frame size and aspect ratio's during conversion.

No help on the editor, M$ Movie Maker has made the few cuts, splices and a  title frame that I've ever ventured into.

There's a M$ Movie Maker for XP, came with Service Pack 2, they just don't tell you.

 Usually right here "C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\moviemk.exe" if not do a search for "moviemk.exe"

Live is just the new free M$ version of Movie Maker, I haven't played with it so I don't know if they've added anything or taken away from it

before you lay your money down, try some trial versions and/or "trial versions" to find one with a workflow design you like and has the output formats you want. i was surprised, at least last time i was looking around, how few would output 720p and above in mpeg 4.

because of the output options i used ulead products for a while but after bumping up against their limitations in other areas moved over to sony vegas.

because it's not a task i enjoy, i don't do much of it so i'm not making any recommendation other than try them out before you buy if at all possible because they're all fairly limited in a different way even though at first glance can appear similar.

maybe not much help after all, lol. sorry about that.

Maybe this does not apply, cause I haven't used Windows for the last 10+ years, but I understand that the video converter most popular in the GNU/Linux world, ffmpeg, is also available to Windows users, as a matter of fact, if I remember correctly, "super" is a GUI frontend for ffmpeg. I guess most Windows users would find a command-line utility like ffmpeg something too difficult to use.... Anyway, ffmpeg is what I use after rendering my videos.
The video editing software I use is cinelerra-cv, very powerful, open-source, but as far as I know, only available for GNU/Linux users.
Another interesting, simpler than cinelerra editor available to GNU/Linux users is openshot, a relatively new product, but definitely a very capable NLE.
By the way, are there more open-source believers in the kiting community?

Sony Vegas Movie Studio - get the platinum version if you can afford the extra.

Thanks Roy. I found Fox Tab Video Converter and Video Pad Video Editor for free. The editing windows are kind of small but it'll do.
