movie making software

    Or whatever it's officially called.

    I'm still getting used to my new Canon Powershot s100 and I LOVE it; but I'm disappointed that I can't edit the video with Windows Live Movie Maker because it isn't compatible.

    However I enjoy making movies so much, I probably should invest in more sophisticated software anyway.

    Can anyone recommend software that is relatively easy to use/figure out that would be compatible with my new camera?

    I use 'Picasa' for movies and editing. I also have a Sony Cyber-shot G, so I would think that would be compatible for yours as well.

    Thank you, I will check it out! Does it let you add music from your computer into the videos?

    Off to google!

    I checked out Picasa and it's not clear that it let's you edit video; I think it just let's you use photos to make a slideshow type video... :dunno:

    I use windows live movie maker or videopad for my movies. I'd love to use a better program, but not until I obtain a better camera.

    As far as I can tell; in my very non-technology oriented psyche - w.live doesn't support the video files. It won't open them. I can open them w/ quick time; but w.live says the files are either corrupted or non-supported.

    Windows live will open the files from my Kodak easy share and I can even edit video from my flipshare with it.

    Thanks Jim!

    I'm in research mode!!!

    First order of business, trying to figure out why I suddenly cannot find anywhere exactly which file format it is that my camera does use. :ohshit:

    If you find software that interests you but have specific questions such as add songs ... support Canon Powershot s100 etc ... I would not hesitate to contact the vendors support for direct answers.

    Some of the "money" video editors also have freeware versions (with limitations). Here's one for instance (I have no idea if it supports your format or not). It would give you some idea of what the full version might offer and what type of user interface to expect ...
    Free Video Editing Software MoviePlus Starter Edition from Serif

    I do know that Avidemux (freeware) that I use on my Linux operating system computer, supports my Canon powershot ... BUT ... Avidemux has to convert the video to a "safe mode" because it doesn't directly support the file format. Perhaps others perform that feature as well. I'm not recommending Avidemux to you though, because ALL I use it for is setting the starting and stopping point of a video. It MAY NOT have the features you're looking for.

    OH ... and my Canon Powershot ELPH 300HS came with video editing software which I haven't used because it only works in Windows (maybe Mac too) and I don't have Windows or a MAC ... I use Linux. Maybe your camera came with a CD/DVD and includes video editing software too, dunno. If you no longer have the CD that came with the camera ... you should be able to download the software from the Canon website.

    THAT is awesome!!! Thank you so much! You are an internet, googling genius!! And I appreciate your taking the time; I had no idea youtube had a movie maker program. And I did a general google search.

    Thanks again Jim!

    I decided to give it a try.

    There is a free version if anyone is interested...but the free version doesn't let you upload HD...so I bought the platinum version...only $50.

    There is another version below platinum for $30 and the only difference is your videos have to be < 10 minutes.
