I started doing real Home Video Tours about 6 years ago and the biggest problem, and still to a degree, was finding a web host to upload the video to. The next biggest problem was finding a Video Program to edit the raw video shot to add some flair. After using a complicated program for about 2 years I finally went to CompUSA and asked the advise of the "experts" and they suggested a program that costs about $230 that was so damn complicated to use that I had to make notes on how I did things because the next time I tried to duplicate an edit I couldn't figure out how I did it. I fought this program for years until one day my 14 year old daughter (should have been the first one to ask) was making Home Movies from video clips and still pics on her computer with her friends and she had all kinds of fancy twists from one scene to the next, blending music and voice overlay, adding cool distortions to pics with zoom in and out features and when I saw her first one I was like WOW...how in the world did you accomplish that. She said she was using Microsoft Windows Movie Maker...a FREE program on her computer.
Folks...I'm here to tell you that I now use Windows Movie Maker and couldn't be happier. It is sooooo simple to use and has more features, whistles and bells than I care to use. It's amazing at just how easy it is to use and the learning curve wasn't but a couple of days. I highly recommend it. I'm still looking for a good quality video host though.
Here's my latest home video movie made with Movie Maker:
