Video Editing Software
These programs allow you to edit your videos by extracting, arranging, and combining video and audio segments and still images with a variety of effects and transitions. They typically also offer chroma-key background (“green screen”) replacement, color correction, and image stabilization among various other features. See the vendors’ pages for specific details.
They also typically come with a 30-day free trial so that you can “test drive” the program before you buy. Different user interfaces appeal to different people, so the exercising the try-before-you-buy option is highly recommended.
