Video Editing Software
« on: Jun 27, 2014, 08:43 PM »
So I run a youtube channel that is mostly dedicated to X-Wing Miniatures Game.   I post things about the game, and some actual game videos (Batreps).  I've been using Windows Movie Maker for awhile now, but I'm looking at doing more now, like posting overlays on top of existing video - like for a watermark, or using other videos on top, like the "head" scene from the Brady Bunch. 

  I've been using Adobe Premiere, but it is extremely complex - more complex than I need.  I'm able to do pretty much all of those things that I want it to do, but when compiling the end video it only lets me do AVI format and it is either some ridiculous 200gb file, or it makes it super small, less than 1 gig and the quality BLOWS. 

  What other tools are out there, that are either free or cheap, that anyone might recommend?

File -> Media -> Export

Choose any file type you want. Or use AME, which is what you're kind of supposed to do, especially for flash content. (YouTube)
Happiness is when you play a game so well that people call you a hacker.

There are two types of people in the world, those who can extrapolate from incomplete information.

Hmmm, I'm using an older version from when they basically put all their software out there for free, but I was able to figure it out. 

  Basically I had to go to export --> About Export - and it had the options.   Surprising that the only way to pick a non AVI format is under an About menu - quite bizarre, but it seems to be working now.   Should be done in a half hour so think I'll play some hearthstone or something while I wait!
