Question

Video Editing

I took my mom's 8mm film to Costco & had it transferred to DVD's which I now have almost 3 hours of video. The videos are all short & in know particular order. I want to save each video individually in my computers video library so I can put them in some order by guessing what year they are from & also want to be able to send video to relatives of only video that they are in. What is the easiest software for me to use? I have Windows 7 & have already saved the DVD's to my computer. Thank you for your help!

I've yet to find "easy" video editors.

There are video editors in a group at Amazon but I find folk that well, how to put this, upset at the learning curve. While you have the DVDs and files, sometimes I have to convert these videos (I use Handbrake) prior to editing in the editor. Such work is not always in a book. But I think it's on the web.

That said there are good enough editors under 99 bucks on Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Best-Sellers-Software-Video-Editing/zgbs/software/567572 in the #2 slot is a Free editor for 30 days. Worth trying.
