Default Looking for software

Until now I'm basically a still shooter but want to dabble in a little video and time lapse stuff. What kind of software will do for short videos for a Windows system? Would appreciate any feedback.

I don't have the current version, but the full version of PaintShopPro includes both a still photography module and a video module. They are both quite competent and priced well below the Adobe alternative. If you only want the video module, each module is sold unbundled, too. FWIW

paniolo,

Before you spend money on something make sure that the free Windows Live Moviemaker doesn't meet your needs. If your needs are very basic it might. I don't know what kind of movies you're making.

I purchased Pinnacle Studio software for ~$40 or so when I outgrew moviemaker and it does what I need it to do up to this point.

Here's somewhat of a comparison of the cheaper suites. None of these will get you to the level of Adobe Premier but most of them are way more powerful than the free options.
