    Hi There,

    I'm downloading certain videos from Youtube for PPD Marketing. So which software is best to use?

    I don't want to compromise with Video Quality and Sound Quality.

    I will be using Torrent to download Premium Software.

    Thanks

    Any video software that works is sufficient. I use a mix between Camtasia and Pinnacle Studio (I know, shitty programs) on my main computer, and OpenShot Video Editor on my laptop.

    The best available should probably be overkill for your needs.
    I suppose you need easy to use but with minimal quality degradation.
    I'm using Sony Vegas and AVS Video Editor for simple stuff.

    Sounds like you need quite basic VE software.

    I personally use Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. Easy to navigate and if you learn this (which should not take long) Then you will 'always' know how to edit. It's slowly becoming globally recognised as the best industry standard video editing software after Final Cut made some bad decisions and messed up their reputable software.

    But if you are after something basic, very simple to use - vegas. I only used up to V9 before I moved to premiere but it was a grrat simplistic powerful tool.

    The best video editing software which I am using is Sony Vegas and Adobe Photoshop CS6. Try it, surely you will get amazing results.

    Agree with the others, Sony Vegas for power and ease of use with Camtasia and a sprinkling of Adobe Premiere. It's amazing what you can do with these programs. If you are Mac based then Final Cut Pro is a good way to go.

    You should also check out Avid which has powerful features as standard.

    +1 for AVS Video Editor.

    It is simple enough to use, even if you have no previous experience in video editing. Other complex softwares do require a lot of time to drive on the learning curve. With AVS Video Editor you will produce your first video in minutes and, last but not least, it is quite cheap.

    Hope this helps :)
