Desktop Video/Creating a video/dvd


Hello Rob

I work for a charity with very limited funds working with disadvantaged youth. We need to make a video for publicity and one of our workers has a good quality camera but we do not have any editing software which works with windows 7. Please could you advise a good piece of software which is fairly easy to use but effective. I am computer literate but do not have much experience in video editing.
Also is there any free software which is advised?
Any help you can give would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks


HI James,

There are a few good 'full service' software apps that would work for you. I recommend looking at these first:

Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate:
Roxio Creator:

Or you can always use Windows Movie Maker:
