Create home movies with impressive results using a video-editing program
Adobe Premiere Elements 9
Video editing is one of the toughest tasks you can perform on a PC, and the software to do it can be complicated to use.
Premiere Elements, reviewed by Computeractive here, does everything it can to help those starting out, including an ‘Instant Movie’ tool that does almost everything for you.
That’s not to say it’s not capable, though, and experienced users will appreciate the dozens of professional tools and effects.
The alternative: Windows Live Movie Maker
Movie Maker has always been one of Windows’ hidden gems, and the latest version, Live Movie Maker 2011, is one of the best yet.
It can import and create high-definition videos, create DVDs, export videos to online sites or copy them to mobile devices ready to play.
It even has an ‘auto movie’ automatic mode that gives quite impressive results.
Total saving: £80
