I want to start a Web Show! Help with programs and software to get me started?

Asked by Chongalicious (2759 points ) March 13th, 2012

Here’s where you and your lovely, ever-helpful advice comes in!

I will be looking to install video editing software on my laptop. Please advise me on which ones are the best for making short films more interesting! (Background music, sound effects, editing scenes, etc.) I would definitely prefer free ones but of course if you know of one that’s worth paying for, I’m all ears!

I’m also in need of learning to use whatever software I choose to install. SO: if you have a suggestion for me, more lurve for an attached educational video from youtube, etc. that accompanies your answer!

Thank you thank you!

Much Lurve,

Desi. (=

Most laptops do not have anywhere near enough speed or RAM to handle Video production along with not having a speedy Graphics card.

You need a PC that is set-up for Video editing and production. Like this one which is desk top.

I already ordered the laptop, a little too late to go and change that, but I’m not trying to make major movie productions here. I’m looking to just make my videos look a litter less home-made. For example: in my old laptop I had picture editing software called Gimp…a free, less advanced form of Photoshop. That’s what I’m looking for. It doesn’t have to be Hollywood worthy but I want it to be better than average.
