    Video editing software

    There are tons of programs out there. From free to rediculous $$
    Free: Windows Movie Maker, Apple iMovie, Avid FreeDV, Wax, Zwei-Stein
    Paid: (for "beginers") Ulead VideoStudio, Pinnacle Studio Plus, Adobe Premier Elements (the one I use), Roxio VideoWave pro.
    If you want to get really crazy you can get off into offerings like Adobe Premier Pro, Ulead VideoStudio 9 and others. Just Google it.

    Look at: your budget, ability to work with the formats you need, special effects if needed, and ease of use.

    Have fun, it's a lot of fun to do but there is a learning curve.

    I got crazy years ago. I've been using Vegas Video, now Sony Vegas Pro, since Christ was a small boy in short pants. I also bought Adobe Premier Pro v1, buggiest software I've ever owned, and I refuse to PAY for their upgrades, so it sits unused. Vegas updates (within versions) are free, as is true with most reputable companies.

    But Vegas has arguably the best feature set for the money in a professional level editor, and it's danged near intuitive. Unless you want to make broadcast-quality stuff, which it is also capable of, you can throw your own little videos together in no time with very little learning curve.

    I can guarantee that if you decide to delve into creating your own videos and editing them, you'll very soon want to do a lot more than just whacking off the beginnings and ends of them. Adding your own soundtrack, background music, adding special filters and effects to that, like reverb or echo, etc, and then creating your scenes with professional fades, wipes and special effects transistions between them......playing with 3D track motion, using parent/child tracks for special effects, ..........like the man said, you can get crazy with it, and it's just a lot of fun.:)

    Just for grins, download (15 minutes) this little 180MB video I made to see some of the things you can do. It starts with a black screen.

    I mean an editing tool that I can use on the Droid itself without having to first load the video onto a PC.
    Thanks!

    **Bumping** Was wondering this myself. Capture some video yest, and was funny as hell! Wanted to upload it but I need to edit. I know I can do it at home, but would like one on the droid. Something similar to Ringdroid, but for video.

    Thanks

    I tried to use Windows Movie Maker, and was told the file format was not supported. Do I need to do something different than just grab ("import") the file off my SD card?

    The software you use really depends on the format of the video itself.

    If it was an MPEG file, for example, I'd look at using the $20 Womble MPEG-VCR.
    If it was an AVI file, it depends.

    Understand that an "AVI" file is not a format. That's a container. If all you know is "AVI", then you don't know the format of your video. You'll need to run it through an analysis program like Gspot.

    Saying you have an "AVI" is like telling the mechanic you have a "car". It's very generic info.

    You don't need a big NLE like Avid, FCP or Premiere just to trim off the ends of video.

    VirtualDub would actually trim many formats in an AVI container, as can AviDemux. Just load the video, mark the in and out points, tell it to do the "stream copy" video output in the options (so it does not needlessly re-encode), and save the new AVI.

    If you grabbed an FLV or MP4 off Youtube, it's not really possible to just trim the file, it has to be re-encoded.

    Phones are far too wimpy to handle video processing. Even cutting edge phones now can barely handle photo processing. Video is dozens of photos per second.

    Good luck.
