    Hi all.
    I currently use Windows Movie Maker for my videos.
    But I am in need of getting one more video maker since Windows Movie Maker is just way too slow.
    Which one do you recommend?
    Please share your wisdom.
    Any input would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks!

    I use Animoto but I'm a YT noob just learning the ropes. I like it because you can make high quality videos in about 5-10 minutes. Of course, I haven't really made much $ on YT yet so there are other guys who probably know better.

    well when I was new, I used AVS video editor. After some time, I started using Adobe Premiere Pro. It all depends on you and what kind of videos you want to create. If you want basic functionality and easy to use interface, then go with AVS video editor. If you are thinking about creating more stunning videos, need more features then I'd suggest you to learn Sony Vegas Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects :) hope it helps narrow down your search :)

    Another vote for Camtasia. You can get it for free at a lot of places. Just do a youtube search for it.

    Thank you so much guys for your insights.
    I have decided to give it a try on the trial version of Sony Movie Studio 11.
    It is only 14 bucks at Amazon so if I like it, I'll buy it.
    Again, thanks everyone for sharing your knowledge.
    Cheers.

    Another vote for Camtasia. It is by far the best video production software I have used so far.

    I use a free program called camstudio. The output is always over a gig so I load it in windows movie maker and shrink it down to a few kb........ 1.5 gig video will become about 4-5kb

    There is no doubt that Camtasia is a good choice. If you want some more specialized software then you can check toonboom.

    I would use camtasia. Realistically Adobe premiere pro would be best, but camtasia is better for beginners. Free trial I think. Its also comes down to your hardware, as far as slowness.

    I use wideo.co for my projects. Their templates were easy to edit and it really captures my audience. This is perfect for presentations, demo or teaching lessons
