    I voted virtualdub, but I generally use it in combination with AVISynth.
    If in doubt, Google it.

  6. I love Vegas and VirtualDub though I wouldn't say VirtualDub was an editor.

  7. But you can EDIT video with VirtualDub, so it IS an editor

  8. Sony vegas i use for menu's and transitions stuff, and for the odd home video, i spend most time at it getting it just right. But virtualdub mod and avisynth are my next best friends.

    and virtualdub is an editor. heheh

    I guess that's what was meant by "Movie Studio" in the "Ulead Video Studio/Movie Studio" selection.

    I selected "Other" because I can be vaguely mysterious, too!

    Now this all depends on how advanced you actually mean by "advanced", before i cast my vote .... cuz for certain values of advanced i might not even have a vote to cast if'n you see what i mean.

    advanced =..............
    1/ reencoding a video just with certain unwanted "credits" removed from the start and finish, perhaps at a different size
    2/ redoing it with basic filters such as colour, contrast, maybe cropping off borders etc (<< limit of what could be achieved e.g. with TMPGEnc)
    3/ more advanced filterage (noise reduction, etc), adding subs, maybe cutting a small section out of the middle for whatever reason
    4/ replacing the soundtrack or extracting and altering (filtering, playing around with, re-encoding) the existing one
    5/ hacking together a very basic anime music video or other low-level cut-up work with heavy handed and time consuming syncing that might not always work (<< limit of what you could achieve with Virtualdub, an external sound editor, and far too much time... everything else on is Premier / similar territory)
    6/ a more advanced type of music video or basic backroom re-editing of a home movie, crossfades, that sort of thing, with easy and precise soundtrack syncing
    7/ professional and broadcast quality processing (an NHMK AMV, or your own indie digicorder film) with good quality special FX, fades, dissolves etc
    8/ full blown studio quality stuff that you'd be happy to put on celluloid, or at least a shrink wrapped dvd

    hm?
    personally im somewhere between 4 and 5 right now.....

    AviSynth is so freaking powerful. One could spend years using this app and barely touch the available functions inside.

    TMPGEnc - all the editing & transcoding goodness one would ever need (without paying $$$$).

    I'm surprised VirtualDub is on this poll and not TMPGEnc. Having used both (and still do) I consider 'T' the more advanced of the two editors. Then again, 'T' is also commercial and 'V' is not.

    yep, it should say mediastudio.

    and tmpgenc is listed... = other. .

  16. I usually use VirtualDub et.al. in combination with Avisynth. But I occasionally use Ulead Videostudio for some of the transitions.

  18. vdubmod, generally, then frameserve.
    Vegas MS4 otherwise. It does enough for me, without the need for 5.

    Vegas is my choice and the "hot off the pressess" Vegas 6.0 paired with DVD Architect 3 is even better. I started off using Premiere Pro, but I got curious and downloaded the demo of Vegas 5.0. After hopping back and forth on different projects between the two, I finally decided that both are versatile video editors, but Vegas just seemed more intuitive to me and hence easier to use. I do also like Virtualdub for its simplicity (and you can't beat the price).
