Get Pinnacle Studio9.0, it's the easiest program out their to work with. Check it out.
The current video editing/reformatting software I have is Video Impression 1.7 . Which does alright and all, but only on small scale. I use it to take a video in any various format and convert it to MPEG/VCD in NTSC mode. Which is the format that works on my portable media player. Anyways, the problem is on a larger scale say a video of 700 MB or so it freezes up. So I was wondering what my fellow software/video alumni would recommend for purely reformatting video of this size. I don't need to edit so I don't need pinnacle or PowerDirector or anything just something to reformat. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thank you.
