My brother currently uses Windows Movie Maker to put together video clips and audio. This program is about as simple and easy as it gets to make a “movie”, but my brother is looking to work with something that has more features, but is not too complicated to work with.
Are there any cheap or inexpensive alternatives?
This software website that sells to students, JourneyED, has Avid Express Pro 5.7 for only $295. I know that this is like jumping from a Go-Kart to a Formula One car, but he will be able to grow into this, his willingness to learn is his only barrier. He is 20 years old and looking at majoring in film when he goes to school next year. Does anyone use this software, and is the learning curve going to be too tough for him to produce simple movies?
Are there any alternative that are in between in complexity that you would personally recommend?
Thanks for any suggestions.
