    I want to purchase a really good video editing program for a pc with windows xp media center. I don't want something that costs as much as Final Cut Pro any suggestions?

    well if you want an actual professional full-blown editing system, you're not going to find that in the editing apps that cost $100. Go with either Adobe Premiere Pro (~$400) or Avid XPress DV (~$750) if you want to seriously get into editing. but if you are just editing your home movies, then its way overkill.

    what kind of editing do you want to do? if you want to do photoshop work, you can export the video from premiere as a film strip, open it in photoshop then edit each frame separately, if you need to use photoshop

    Ulead MediaStudio Pro It's a great video editing suite. Doesn't cost as much as Adobe products.

    However what's impotent for me when I chose Ulead was that it support XVID that Premier doesn't. I know it's unwise to use compressed video for video editing but as a non professional video editor, I prefer to convert DV into XVID and save gigz of space. So, Ulead Video Editor is the thing for me.

    premiere does support xvid and many other codecs, you just have to install the plugins for them

    Hey djscoop,
    I searched whether there are any plug-ins that help to import XVID into Premiere... but found none.
    Could you pls post the links to relevant plug-ins that you use to do that here pls...
    Thanks...

    this is what my buddy uses. I personally haven't tried it (I use premiere for DVD mastering and whatnot, not exporting to comressed video files) but he says this programs is a color balancer and has built in codecs for xvid.

    choosing a video editing app really depends on what you want to do with it. Adobe Premiere Pro is almost $500 because it is a full-blown editing system. For many users that just want to do basic editing functions, its probably overkill, so apps like Ulead or Pinnacle or Vegas Video might be easier to use, as premiere is also pretty complex so it takes a while to get the hang of it...
