Looking for opinions on video editing software. I don't mind buying a good package, but I'm looking at less than $100 - not making the next Avengers movie. I just want to take some old home movies that I had converted to digital and make some modern versions (with all the overexposed pieces deleted). Windows or Mac recommendations are fine - I have both available.

I am using adobe premiere elements. Just fine for consumer use. Has some nice features found in the higher end packages with a simpler interface. I have the Mac version but it is available for both platforms. Just recently used it for the same purpose - digitized a bunch of mini rv camcorder recordings from back in the day.

Movie Maker comes with most computers these days. I have professional equipment that I used in a business and Movie Maker is close to as good as what I paid $10,000 for 20 years ago. I use it now for wedding videos, etc. Free.

If you have a Mac you already you have a pretty good editing software in iMovie. Before you go buy anything give it a try and see if it does what you need.

Sony "VEGAS".

The trick to VEGAS is to buy an OLDER VERSION while it is still available.

You can get Vegas Movie Studio 12 for $40 on Amazon..

HERE

Version 12 works with Win7, 8, 8.1 and according to the questions on Amazon also works with Win10.

It is a full fledged video editing suit for SD and HD video and also includes audio editing.

It will present some learning curves but there is a lot of help out on the wobbly web that should get you up and running quickly.
