I am going to start doing some video with my 7D, not really sure where I am going to take it. I may just play with it, doing shorts with friends and what not, but I am going to need the ability to process/edit/compile it of course. I would love to have top notch software, but that is not currently an option since this is just fun stuff and not making me any money.
What software would you guys recommend for under $200, preferably $150, that will give me some decent capabilities for this? I am not going to be doing huge special effects or anything like that. Just want to compile my HD video and work in music and have it come out looking nice.
I have been looking at Pinnacle's Ultimate Studio collection, Adobe Premier Pro, and Vegas.
Of these, I have only used Pinnacle (about 10 years ago) It did alright, but just wondering what you guys think of my options?
ETA: I use a PC
Thanks you guys!
