Sure, this could've been in the Help forum, but whatevs...

What is the easiest/quickest/best video editing software for PC?

I have Nero and Adobe After Effects, but have yet to try anything.

Thanks in advance.

a-all the "not upgradable" nonsense hasn't been true for years. the design inside a mac is super straightforward and easy to pull and switch out components.

b-some people are willing to spend extra money for quality components and a more streamlined design.

c-HACKINTOSH. CHEAP, AND IT SHITS IN YOUR PC'S MOUTH WITH A SUPERIOR OS.

but i'll admit that the ipad and the macbook air are two of the stupidest things ever.

a - nowhere near as straightforward and easy as a PC, AND there is nowhere near as much free information about upgrading a Mac on the internet.
b - I'm glad you can afford to waste your extra money on overpriced hipster shit.
c - Still takes over $800 to build a "Hackintosh". I can buy almost every upgrade or replacement part for an Acer or Asus for less than $30, so I could buy a shittier computer for, say $300 and upgrade it with about $200 worth of parts and still be in the chips $300.

I'll give it to you, slightly better hardware, slightly better looks. Big waste of money. 

I'll agree with you on the last part, but the tablets are gonna rip shit up for me once they can handle a real version of Photoshop.

Forget about expensive computer editing programs.  Low quality, processed footage is way more interesting.  Plug your camera into your TV, put a blank tape in the VCR, record the clips you want in the order you want onto the tape.  Rewind that edit, get your camera out, play the edit back on your TV and film it.  For an extra special vibe, play the music you want in the background while you are filming the edit, preferrably on a boom-box or tinny computer speakers.  Then plug into your PC and use Nero to export the filmed edit and add music if you didn't already.  Instant classic.

yeah, and fuck urethane wheels, too. just use clay. and all those store-bought skateboards are a waste. just get some wood, cut some rollerskates apart and you're set.


and heffy, thanks for calling me a 1% hipster. that felt really good. i learned to edit in final cut. it's not available for pc's, and premier flat-out sucks, so i saved up and got a mac. but i'm glad my choice of computer hardware dictates my politics and social standing. thanks for putting me in my place, you genius, you.

I'll freely admit that my bias towards Windows is somewhat unfounded, but it comes mostly from my friends spending what I think is too much on Macs that have way too much computing power for what they're doing.
The hipster/1% comments were more of a calling a fat guy "Flaco" thing. I know our political ideologies are mostly in line with each other.

I'm still editing in Final Cut on my Power Mac G5 from 2004.  Yes Macs are more expensive but I'll gladly pay more for the OS and longevity.  Windows is better for the office work environment (excel, word, databases, etc) and OSX is better for home use.  Think my next purchase will be a mac mini and hook it up to my big screen.
