Re: Movie Editing
*raises hand* I'm a video editor
Video card? I think you mean capture card... Assuming you have one...on to editing software.
Windows movie maker would probably work for you fine. I used it a LONG time ago and I think it divides it up for you. Sometimes too much from what I remember, but it might be good for a beginner.
I used Ulead Video Studio when I first got started editing. It's not quite as easy just to clip out commercials, or the version I had wasn't, but that's an alternative. I got mine for a while $10 back then!
Are you wanting to just export to view on your computer or what? there are hundreds upon thousands of codecs and such you can use. Figure out how you wish to view the videos before you start compressiong or you'll loose most of your quality(compressing more than once is a no-no :P )
