    whats the best that you know of? i am going to make a gameplay video of me playin' Killing Floor...i want to add special affects, credits, some kind of intro video clip? also want to be able to add audio files and the video editing really needs to work...like i want to be able to take 1 second of footage out of the middle of it...any idea's? free, trial, $500.00, anything will work.

    I may get shouted at by people by saying this but windows movie maker is brilliant for making gameplay clips - you can add intros/credits easily, transitional effects, cut up and order audio and video clips and it's free on windows.

    Import the clip, when you reach a part you wat to cut the clip into 2 sections then pause it (if you're playing it through internally to find the point) and there should be a cut button, click it and your imported video is now 2 imported videos. To cut a middle section navigate to the point where you want to start your clip, click cut. Go to the second clip of the original and navigate to where you want it to end and click cut again. You then have 3 mini-clips of the original clip, with the middle clip being the content you wanted.

    Sorry if that isn't too clear, been a while since i used it and i'm very tiered today :(

    That would be Sony Vega 8.0 or 9.0 but that's going to cost you :nutkick:. I believe Movie Studio 9 may also do what you want at a lower price.

    So is Sony Vegas easy to use? Like adding in special effects and cutting up video? I was thinking of grabbing it next time I get paid :toast:

    There is a slight learning curve but it's fairly easy once you get the hang of it. It really add depends on what you want to do though. If you are not sure about something google it using youtube and someone is bound to show you how.
