Digital video editing software problems

by mekanic / March 20, 2004 5:49 AM PST


I am new at using video editing software so please bare with me!
I have used Windows Movie Maker, U-Lead Video Studio, and Video Deluxe. I have found that they all have some shortcomings but for basic editing I guess they are OK. However, I have yet to use an editing program that will let me delete, or edit (crop?) my video one frame at a time! Now maybe my terminology is different than what I understand film to be. Some programs refer to "clips" which I would call a series of frames of film. Regardless is there a program which will enable me to edit each frame of my MiniDV tape?
I think that Windows Movie Maker is probably the closest program which allows users to edit each frame of a clip.
I don't have a DVD burner on my PC but I do have a CD Burner. I tried making a VideoCD and playing it on my Panasonic DVD player but it wouldn't recognize the CD!

Do I need a separate DVD burning program to burn my videos?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

My question is why would you edit one frame at a time (asuuming that you can do it). We are talking about maybe 1/30th of a SECOND here; you think your eyes can tell the difference?

But I do think I know what you are after though, there are time when I like to go into a individual scence and do more editing but my software couldn't do it.

Delete a frame. Absolutely easy.

I use Virtual Dub to do that.

Edit a frame? Well there are ways, but far too many. Start with Virtual Dub to see if that helps you out. Be aware that if you step into the icky mess that is PROPRIETARY FORMATS like what you see with Windows Movie Maker, PLEASE!! don't complain to me. I can't help you since I can't use such things.

There are DVD "burning" programs, but I tend to call them DVD creation software.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
