    Default Video Editing Software

    Whatís the best? Like most here, we donít have a money tree growing out back, so whatís the most cost effective software for a PC that will cut, splice, add effects like an arrow pointing to a specific player, etc?

    Just tried Openshot. EXACTLY what I've been looking for. For years I used Adobe Premiere and it's not cheap. All I needed was something to piece together all the files from a complete game, or to scroll through video I took and look at it frame by frame or cut out bits before uploading. I couldn't ask for more, and free is awesome! Thanks for posting this.

    This couldn't have been better timing... I literally just bought a HD video camera 15 min ago, and was about to look for some editing software...LOL
    I'm going to take a crack at making my students skills videos. One of my girls just paid $250 for a video...that is in my opinion crap, and doesn't showcase her real skills. For that much money, there's certain level of expectations... right?

    Freemake works well. But as you want more features you will have to pay a little for them. Free for basic stuff.
    A change up should be kept low so that if the hitter does time it, they have to make the secondary adjustment of going down to hit the ball also. 2 movements in the hitter doubles their chance of a bad swing. The combo of being able to read the pitcher's change up early and doing a backflip to keep it up in the zone is a deadly combo. - Bill Hillhouse

    I've watched a lot of these skill videos, and like you, am kinda sickened that families pay for some of that junk. I paid around 400 bucks for my HD Camcorder and it has paid off 10 fold just between me and my DD, being able to analyze her swings and throws. I'll be glad to help out any teammate to my DD and make her a high quality video. It doesn't take a lot of effort as long as you have basic computer skills.

    I've been using Movavi. It wasn't free, however.

    EDIT: OpenShot looks interesting. I might give it a try.

    Interesting. Anyone still use Windows Moviemaker? Are Lightsource or OpenShot better? More difficult to figure out? What? TKS!
