Free Avid Xpress Video Editor and proTools Audio Mixer Engine
I had posted this in reply to another thread, but I thought I would put it out there for all to see. These could be useful items to anyone who wants to get a little more serious with their home editing, and audio mixing.
By profession, I am a broadcast engineer, (TV), specializing in video servers and high end graphic and editing systems. I keep up with with the latest stuff, and will happily post any freebies or good deals I come across.
If you go to AVID.com, there is a Professional/Broadcast quality digital editor available for free.
This is totally legitimate.
It is a fully functional (no Shareware or expiration timeout) , but is a streamlined version of the full blown Television or Post House suites.
For home video editing it is perfect, and it is much more versatile then Windows.
Avid is trying to get "branded" with Home Consumers, so they make this available for free.
Check it out.
I also recommend getting a large (120gb minimum), fast, second hard drive. The second drive will be your designated "library" drive, where all of the videos, audio, pics, etc., get captured to.
This way, you can start your capture, then move on to others programs at full speed without having any slow downs due to the capture process to the hard drive.
PS, also go to ProTools.com, and find the link for ProTools Free. It is a link for you to get a 17mb download of ProTools Audio Mixer. Another fully functional program with minimal plug-ins, but way more than the average home user would need. The hope is that you will download the Free engine, and then end up buying a few thousand dollars worth of plug-ins..
