Unhappy Help choosing editing program, Please

Okay.. So yesterday i bought Sony Vegas 9 at Best Buy. Got home, put it in, didn't work. So today i went back to Best Buy. Traded it in, got home, put my new disk in, didn't work. I'm starting to get annoyed. My camera (even though the best buy people told me it was) is for some reason, not compatible with WMM. So I come to you. Can anyone help me decide on a video editing program (preferably under $100) that will work on my computer. It would also be nice to be able to download it to my computer, rather than having to go to the store and pick it up.. Any advice?

Moderator(s), please move this thread over to JC.

Could you describe a bit more about what you mean by "didn't work" and "not compatible with WMM"? It's very little information to work with, other than possibly your camera is putting out some kind of annoying file format. The answer to what file format might be found in your camera's manual (look for PDFs on the CD, if there is one), but it also might not...

Ooh sorry about that..

Well, when I put the disk in my drive nothing happened. I tried running all kinds of commands and stuff but nothing happened, so I figured there was something wrong with my disk... I guess not because the brand new one isn't working either.. And yeah my camera is putting the clips in MPEG4, and apparently WMM doesn't support that file type.

It's a samsung.. I think that it is supposed to be uploading to a compatible format, but my computer is doing something to it... I'm not sure what to do, this is the second camera that had this problem.

adobe premiere cs3 or cs4. Love cs3 personally.

I'd say those are your best bets. Cs4 is like $1000 easy though i think. Atleast thats what it costs to upgrade from cs3. I wouldnt recomend it, but you could use a torrent and download it ilegally. (ex of websites that supply stuff Piratebay.org. Bitjunkie.org). Then you can use bittorrent and stuff.

DISREGARD MY PREVIOUS POST

Mpeg4 is an unuseable file (for the most part), sorry. Ive had experience with this on my old digital camcorder. Get another camera (like i did), or buy a software that can change the format of the video (like 10-20 dollar software). I used to use demos of software that would do what i was saying, but i'd just go for buying it. I mean, i dont know if many are really that legit, but its your best bet if you dont want another file type.


again, MPEG4 is virtually unuseable with almost ANYTHING, your software isnt the problem, its the video format. Most digitals record to this format, its made for speedy upload straight to youtube and such. It'll take like 3 minutes to go buy the formatting software from the internet, if possible, get the demo, make sure it works, then buy.

out of peer interest, what brand/model is your camera?
