Are you sure this must be free?
Being a rookie at this I would like to start with a free version until I at least understand what I am doing.
I am looking to learn how to create teaching videos.
What I need is an editor where I can insert graphic images (JPG, PDF, etc) into the video stream while I continue talking in the background. At some point these might become animated and/or come from a PowerPoint presentation.
I really don't know what I am looking for. I have downloaded several video editors, but it seemed that none of them could do what I was looking for.
I would appreciate some feedback and advice on what I described doing above is called and know if there is a free video editor out there that I can learn on.
This appears to be a Linux program. I should have mentioned that I am on Windows 7.
I would prefer a free version, because I am not sure if I am even going to do this if it becomes too difficult to learn and produce, and therefore don't want to spend money on something that I end up not using, plus money is tight and I don't want to spend money on something that is too complex or doesn't do what I am looking to do, thus end up not using and wasting money.
That is why I was asking if there was a technical term for doing what I mentioned above.
Once I understand what is involved, the terminology, standardized steps involved and done it a few times, then I will be ready to spend money for a more robust program.
So, I will ask again:
1. What is the technical term for adding a graphic or other video image on top of another video while maintaining the existing audio track?
2. Does there exist a FREE Windows 7 video editor that can do that?
3. If there is no free version, what would be the cheapest video editor available that could do this?
