Default Reasonably Priced Video Editing Software?

Hey all,

I really haven't done much video to this point, and thus have never needed video editing software.

Now that I have my Olympus EPL1 which does 720p video with full manual controls I am looking to delve into it a little bit.

What kind of reasonably priced editing software should I look for. I originally thought to get Premier Elements since it should be reasonably intuitive since I used to Photoshop. However, I have heard that it isn't stable.

Anyone have any suggestions or alternatives, or know that Premier Elements has become more stable with patches/fixes? I use Windows.

Thanks!
-Dustin

I'm glad I was sitting down when I read this, Dustin wanting to edit video LOL.

I have Premeiere Elements and it does thow a wobberly from time to time which is a pain. I also have Corel Video Studio 12 which does an OK job.

Sony Vagas is one that I would probably go for if buying again or Pinnacle's option but I don't know as much about the latter.

I think they pretty much all have trial options.

So the Sony Vegas Movie Studio 9 is their "light version" like Premier Elements?

That is probably the one I would go for then, as I know the Vegas Pro version is the one my wedding video friends all swear by. I just wasn't aware they had a light version.

Yep, give the trial a bash.
