View Full Version : Video editor

16-07-2012, 12:39 PM
Hi I have started taking the odd video with my camera and would like to be able to edit the videos and if possible convert the odd frame into a single picture
I am looking for something free (if possible) and easy to use and if it also edited downloadable videos that would be great

Will be run on a laptop with reasonable space but only 2 gb of ram ( Compaq 6710b )

Any ideas

Whats the version of windows? And what format is the video in? XP and up do have an editor. But, it depends on the format of the video. Whether they'll be able to load it

If you have XP with Service Pack 2 you will find Windows Movie Maker 2.1 installed on it. I have Windows Live Movie Maker on my laptop using Windows 8. I have used Windows Movie Maker in the past and was able to download directly from my camera and edit the clips. Windows Movie Maker is also available for Vista. It is easy to use,free and has most of the features a beginner needs.
