I personally use VSDC for editing. It takes a bit to get used to, but is pretty powerful and suits my needs and then some.

Little drawback with DaVinci...seems like my iMac book pro with 16 GB ram is too little for the task. Will find out if that is also the case with Final cut... and adobe product. But i did like Da Vinci till the point when almost nothing happened for a while. It will also need 4K or 5K big screen to be anywhere good in using it. Will get back to it when I have upgraded my computer.

I'd also recommend DaVinci Resolve which is a very comprehensive product, and the free version includes all of the features that you will ever need as an amateur videographer, and much more than that actually.

Just curious ...

Does the Free version of DaVinci Resolve have watermarks on the final video?

Hi,

No it doesn't ! Amazingly enough the free version is a full-fledged video editing tool with heaps of great features .

I was editing video yesterday with Final cut pro, and after DaVinci resolve it felt like why to pay for Pro..? It is not ’that’ much more than iMovie, for what it is. Yes, more filters and developed sound ect things. But that is almost 300€. DaVinci does the same for free. Only thing is that it is optimised automaticaly with my iMac book pro(finalcut). And DaVinci is too heavy. That said, iMovie can do basic things, it is not as fluent as final cut pro, but not that much better either.

I’ll give DaVinci an other go today with little smaller video files. Some how it feels that I’d get more bang for € with DaVinci than final cut. If I decide to buy a program. Ofcourse Adobe is what it is, but in 2-3 yr from now it is also more money. Even Da Vinci free version is great! It needs just a lot of resolving power.. more exploring needs to be done. But it is fun also.

Oh, I hated that watermark in resolve today(while working). Went back to try the final cut after that. Have to learn some more tricks in it. It sure is good to have that trial time to make up your mind. luckily I’m not in hurry of buying stuff.

Thanks for the link. Pretty much sums up what has been going on in this thread
Edit:added comment

Also little note. I do like Final cut. Seems that you can really controll lot of things more than iMovie. Now question is that would it be enough. I have been lusting after Blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4K for a while now. And since you get Resolve full license with it, it kind a lowers the whole paggage prize...I have Pentax -> m4/3 adapter and I could buy couple lenses to use with my Oly when needed/get lenses just for cine. So that kind a gives to me one option(also one more thing to wonder). I like Resolve. Final cut is not too bad either. I have actually enjoyed it. But one problem is lack of proper editing your sound files in program vs resolve. But Final cut is easy to use, really well matches even my book pro. Not sure if I really fancy that trackpad usage, even if it has been optimised. I'd rather have a mouse.

Thanks for the help guys!

oh and one more thing, no premier needed! Saves me a lot of money.
