    Try windows movie maker or if you want to make first class unique video with watermark and sound, try sony vegas. I was making 5 vids for a day - but they were really really good.

    Do you find either tool easier or quicker to use?

    How large are the files that are produced?

    For just a quick porn-vid I use Windows Moviemaker cause it doesn't really needs to be a perfect vid for the traffic to "come".

    For more quality business vids I use Pinnacle.

    I use Sony Vegas Pro 8 to edit videos before I upload them to you tube. It allows you to render the videos in a format that results in 2 versions being created , one standard quality and one higher quality. I use it because I have some fast action scenes filming dog sports and the normal youtube quality sucks when there is lots of motion.

    Check out www.**youtube.com**/watch?v=2e5FZp1b69k remove the ** and click 'watch in high quality' under where it says views and you'll see a significant difference

    Sony Vegas is easy to learn and gives some great results.

    if you have a mac and want to get something up quick i usually record with screenflow and edit in imovie 08. when you are finished editing it is just one button and uploaded to yout*be.

    i will probably upgrade to final expr*ss soon as this editing stuff is getting fun and imovie 08 is limited. but once again very easy to use and great for getting something up fast as hell.

    I prefer vegas over premiere, simply find the interface a little easier to use, it has more effects then premiere (that I want to use) if you're looking to skip some/all of the After Effects work (a big hassle in my opinion).

    Pinnacle looked interesting, but I could not get the trial version to work.

    I have Sony Vegas 7 and it appears to be pretty easy to use.

    I appreciate everyone sharing their experiences with video. :)

    I have used Pinnacle for years from version 9...it was always good but a nasty habit of crashing at inopportune moments causing hissy fits. Now with version 12 I have been using for about 3 months and no problem. It has great libraries of transitions and FX (don't overdo these..beginner mistake no.1)

    V12 Ultimate available on loads of To Rent sites, I'm loaded so I bought it. ;)
