Subject: Tech: Free Video Editing Software Advice

We have a video that is in need of color correction and we're looking for some (hopefully) free software that will do the job. It's an HD file and we also have it in MP4 format. We're using Windows 7.

We used Windows Live Movie Maker to trim the video and to add a title and fade in/out. However, it won't do color correction.

We tried Avidemux and we can't get it to work. Also tried AVDC (might have that misspelled). It has color correction but it doesn't work. There's an online software called FileLab which has color correction and we can't get it to work either.

What's wrong here?

I can't give advice on the the color correction, but clarification might help someone who knows about that for the three you say "don't work."

Do you mean they run but don't do the color correction you want, or that they won't run on your computer?

If it's the latter, the OS you're using may be needed for someone to be very helpful.

Well, John, it's like this. Avidemux won't load the type of video files we have. AVDC loads the files and appears to do color correction but when we actually try to correct the color as shown in the tutorial, nothing happens.

FileLab loads the files and we can apply the "standard" color correction but the result is not very good. There's a custom color correction but the window in which it's done is not properly displayed in Firefox. When we switched to IE, the software wouldn't open because we have a 64-bit browser. When we tried it with the 32-bit version, it opened and actually allowed some color correction but the rest was improperly displayed in the window so it wouldn't work. In any event, FileLab won't let us save the file unless we give it permission to get into our Facebook page or Gmail account and we won't do that.

hi

I don't know what files you are trying to process and if you wish to use it for all your future recordings?

If it is just for the files you have now in your situation I would download the Photoshop Premiere Elements 11 0r earlier versions if you wish. I have done this several times. They allow you to try it out for -I think a month- free.

You should be able to do what you want and then just uninstall the program when yoy free time runs out.

Hope this helps.

Cheers

MikeL2

Thanks for the tips. We have tried some of these suggestions and they don't do color correction but others are new to us so we'll give them a shot.

And special thanks to Gargoyle for that link to Wikipedia. The tables don't address color correction but we can check out the free software and try them if they look suitable.

We'll be gone for a week so the project is on hold for now.

Bev and Jerry
