Windows 7: Video editing software recommendations

Video editing software recommendations

I have a Panasonic MiniDV camcorder (tape) and am looking for a good program to import and edit video. The camera comes with MotionDV Studio which basically works to import the video, but it's not very useful beyond that. I've used the latest Windows Movie Maker, which works fine but it's pretty basic. I've also tried Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD - it has many good features but it doesn't import properly from the camera (sync problems). Can you suggest anything? It's for personal not professional use and I don't want to drop too much $$ on it. Thanks!

i'm not 100% sure you can trust sites like this though - how much of it is marketing? anyway, they have a few reviews of several lo-cost products, hopefully there are free trials available so you can try-before-buy.

i've always been a vegas fan, so i haven't tried any of the above i'm afraid.

Thanks for the link. Since you're a Vegas user perhaps you can offer advice? When I import video from the camcorder Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD automatically saves it as AVI. That's fine, but the problem is the video and audio are out of sync. This doesn't happen with the panasonic app so I know it's not a hardware problem. If I could solve this I would probably go with SVMS.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm going to download the 30 trial and see how it goes. By the way, do they post prices anywhere?

sorry, i've never used it with a camera

i used to play with fraps clips a lot, that had already been captured. i used vegas to string them together, along with titling, fx and transitions.

They used to have the prices on the site, but I guess they removed them.
Current price for NEO 2 is $144 at B&H Photo and they have no listing yet for NEO 3.
