Welcome to Video-Editing-Software-Tips.com. On this site I hope to provide you with the latest news and updates in the area of home video editing. This is a fast evolving arena so I’ll do my best to keep you posted on the latest and greatest.

The other function of this blog is to provide you with a reasonably jargon-free guide to choosing video editing software. My area of knowledge is with Windows programs so I am not going to pretend I know anything about the Mac ones.

About seven years ago I needed to buy a camcorder. My “tech” guy suggested a DV.avi tape based camcorder. Being totally ignorant of the technology at the time I associated a tape based camcorder with audio cassette tapes from the 80’s! Horrified at the thought I immediately purchased an outrageously over-priced top of the line (at that time) Sony DVD Camcorder.

That was the beginning of a very steep learning curve both in the area of video editing software documented on this blog and DVD disc repair, documented on one of my other sites.

I guess the journey was a little like using Windows. Although you never set out to become an expert on it, eventually if you want to get it to work right…you have to!

Over the years I became a regular seeker of help then contributor to a number of video editing and gathered a good deal of experience in the subject. All of this was from a strictly “home user” point of view so if you are looking for pro tips and advice on the high end of the video editing market then I am afraid you have come to the wrong place!

Throughout the site you will be able to find (hopefully!) solid and sound advice on purchasing your own video editing software as well as help in the basics of home video.

If at any time and for any reason you want to ask a question, make a comment or even submit some of your own ideas or resources please feel free to use the comments boxes and I will get on to it as soon as I can.

I hope you find something to help you while you are here because that’s why I am here!
