Video editing software

Hey just looking a doing some video for my box. Having trouble as i am using windows live movie maker which is really easy to use, though i need to convert my files which are .mov into .wmv files and i am losing a fair bit of quality.

Just wondering what people recommend using...

google avs4you, this is what i use. has a lot of options as far as video type and quality, and anything else you would need for simple or complex video edits

Re: Video editing software

I'm using Pinnacle Ultimate Studio and I hate it. It's as unstable as Courtney Love on a 3 day bender. According to the reviews it's not just my copy either. It's got a rep for crashing at the most inopportune moments, like the 20th minute of when you're trying to compile a video.

I'm getting Adobe Premiere. Soon.

Re: Video editing software

This is a massive overkill for most people, but Lightworks just began the process of Opensourcing their video editor.
The closed source beta is available now at http://lightworksbeta.com/ (wfs). It's Wintel only for now with Linux and OSX coming late next year and some people are reporting stability issues.

It is however a heavy duty full bore professional video editor.
The list of feature film and TV productions that it has been used on (with no way of knowing if and to what degree other editors were also used) is very impressive http://lightworksbeta.com/index.php?...107&Itemid=260 (wfs)

If that's the type of video editor you're after the price is good.
And you don't need an expensive Mac to run it.

You're after a quicktime movie editor. Google turns up quite a few, with many free options. I haven't had to work through this particular issue before so I can't comment on what would work best.

But, I have converted more then a few .mov files to other formats and you don't have to lose resolution.
What are you you using for the conversion?
And you have to convert to a .wmv? That's because your editor only accepts them?
What editor are you using?
