I am going to be a newcomer to editing video on my computer so I want a software that has good flexibility, features and ease of use. I ordered a firewire input for my computer which I'm still waiting to recieve so in the meantime I need some advice on different softwares. I've heard a little about some softwares such as Adobe Premiere and Pinnacle. I've recently discovered that my Windows XP already has Movie Maker video software that came with my computer when I bought it. I didn't know that it had it because I had no reason to use it until now. What I've heard about Adobe is that it's very diffucult to learn how to use, which I would not be interested in because I'm a beginner to this. Is Pinnacle also difficult to learn to use? Does it have more features than the software that I already have? What would be the advantages of Adobe Premiere? I would very much appreciate any advice. Thanks, Tunes Man.
