I have windows movie maker, windows life movie maker, and about to have NERO. but all these are to simple i think. Any suggestions for more ADVANCED editing software?

    If you're just filming with a phone then it probably not worth it to put any kind of money into a decent software. Most of the software that is decent cost a lot ($600-$1500) but to answer your question:

    Most people use Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects or Final Cut Pro

    Sony Vegas seems to be what a lot of the up an coming youtubers and vimeo junkies are using. I am currently running Sony Vegas 12 x64 and I must say I am impressed. Also feel free to check out another part of the site here just to get familiar with what's out there. It is a little outdated but should point you in the right direction.

    Windows - premiere pro or sony vegas. Vegas is cheaper by a long shot

    I use Vegas. I've considered and tried switching to Premiere but it's just too much of a different interface for me. Both of them have some exclusive features, but I tend to use Vegas's more often. If I did a lot of work with After Effects, then I would definitely force myself to switch to Premiere. BUT since I do straightforward editing I'd choose Vegas.

    If you're on a Mac, however, you basically have Final Cut Pro X or Premiere. FCPX is a simplified version of FCP 9, which was a lot like Premiere, so it's more user-friendly.

    You are looking for free "advanced" editing software?
    Dude, you can't be serious; but then again, like marley said you are filming with devices that aren't specialized in video capture. So it's not really that worth it for you until you actually get a camera.

    If you want to get advanced editing software, you are going to chock up money for it or you will be stuck with all of the low quality programs like windows movie maker. If it's cheap, it will be really bad.

    When I was cheap all I did was whore around for free trials, once they expired I just re-installed my OS and repeat the process. But it was extremely time consuming.

    Right now I use Sony Vegas 11 pro and I dabble a little bit with adobe after effects cs5.5 now and then. I just need enough so that quality isn't destroyed when importing and exporting... nothing big.

    I started using sony vegas years ago, I think the first version I used was vegas 7. I tried switching to premiere but I just like vegas too much. I'm actually still on vegas 9 because I don't bother to upgrade.

    Not to mention that you are not going to want to put forth the time/effort to learn these programs to just put together iphone footy.

    Yeah man ^^^^^ All of these programs are useless if you don't know the basics. It would be a good idea to look up youtube videos on whatever you choose to go with. If you are going with vegas start with these *******s. They are annoying as **** but they get to the point and give you alot of tips:

    Its also Personal preference but a combination of programs is good to provide variety in editing and ect..
    I personally use currently: Sony Vegas 11, Adobe After FX, Sony Sound forge and sometimes Adobe Photoshop.

    Yes.

    Mess with your computer settings and re-set the system preferences date once your trial almost expires. Worked on my computer. Then, you won't have to re-install every month or whatever time they might give you.
