Several years ago, i dabbled in video production (computor). Had a good computor then and was excited about the field. At that time, i had a digital video camera and only wanted to offload the shoots onto computor, edit and produce. No special effects.
Was using a medium-priced software editor which was popular on the market at that time. Have rarely been so frustrated in my life.
My son was using Adobe Premium on his computor and producing videos within the snap of the fingers. Easily.
Sometimes saving a few pennies will cost you an arm and a leg.
Adobe will give you a professionally done, seamless video with less wear-and-tear on your computor.
My two cents worth (not priced to include inflation)!

this is a barnes and noble purchase.
`the ulitimate field guide to digital video`
richard olsenius isbn 978 1 4262 0122 6
it is a national geographic book/ twenty bucks. printed in spain.

i checked the price of the software from adobe/premium
and, it seems that the big difference in the high priced
software is the huge number of formats and process' one
can do. it reminds me of java and websites.
i don't want spinning pots with flames coming from my
website. i just want to teach something.

the big issue will be for me, is finding a few great minutes
of raw material from those sending me pix of their kilns and
sheds. i will have that professionally formatted.
then made into cd production.
