For most people, the main constraint to choose a video editing software is the money. Good editing software is expensive and often requires a high-priced computer to run effectively. Obviously the more money you can spend the better, but you can achieve reasonable results with software costing for less money. Based on this princeple, choosing a video editing software is not easy. There is a huge range available, from very basic applications such as Windows Movie Maker, SmartPixel Producer to professional packages such as Final Cut Pro, ULead MediaStudio and Adobe Premiere etc..

Most general-purpose of the video editing software does three things, capture, edit and output. Which means the software controls the capturing (recording) of the footage, provides a way to edit the footage, and allows the finished product to be output to a recording device such as a VCR or DVD or the online video sharing sites.

Very cheap or free software (e.g. Windows Movie Maker) tends to be very limited and somewhat impractical. If you are at all serious you will need to spend some money. Make sure that many capture devices and cameras come with their own editing software, or perhaps a limited version of a professional package. This can be a cost-effective way to get started.

To choose a video editing software, there should base on certain rules:

1.Make sure it is compatible with your hardware and operating system.

2.Check the capture, import and export options. Make sure it can handle the formats and resolution you want to use.

3.Does the software allow for layering and effects? What other advanced features does it have?

4.Is there any other software bundled with the package (e.g. audio editing)?

5.Is it compatible with other common software (e.g. Adobe Photoshop)?

Although the terminology may vary, non-linear video editing is founded on the concept of a project. An editing project is a collection of elements which are used to create the finished product. Elements can include video clips, audio clips, titles, graphics, effects etc.

Finally, you can decide who video editing software suite for you the most. If you are still unsure about how to choose the video editing software, may give you a hint.
