Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

First effort below using Windows Movie maker - I wish I hadn't used the "fade" transitions now, but otherwise very simple to use and good enough for my amateur efforts. Selfie stick footage is much better than helmet mounted in my opinion!

What about relics like me, who still have a stash of unedited Hi8 and DV tapes stretching back to the early 90s? Will any free software work for me please? Or would I need to set aside a whole room and invest in specialist studio equipment to edit it? Advice much appreciated!

Power Director Ultimate Suite is powerful for the money. About 18 months ago. My son and I set up a video production company (which he now runs). We started off with Power Director. However, as the business and demands grew we moved to the Adobe Premier Pro and After Effects.

+1 for Adobe. I use Adobe premiere elements. Never crashes and can cope with huge input files. Only £60 or so. Well worth it.

Both the big OS's free video editors should work just fine, the ballache will be in getting the footage off the tapes and onto your computer to get started. I'm not familiar with Hi8, but transferring DV required real time playback on camcorder (or whatever plays it) while capturing it on computer via firewire back when i was using it. I suspect there will be plenty of modern video capture doodads to do the job if you have something to play the tapes and output the signal to something one of 'em can take as an input.

For tapes, I would google methods to get those transferred - there's plenty of information out there on how to go about it.

Editing is a different deal. Reasonable modern desktop hardware is easily up to the job of 4k editing; old nasty computers may be painfully slow to use with modern footage, but fine with low-resolution old stuff. For modest resolutions you can edit it on a mobile phone using a free app if you like (that's not my recommendation!).

Software-wise, there's a lot of free stuff about, and I'd start with that until you know what you want. And never alter the original files, as you may want to re-edit once you get better at it. Personally I use Premiere Pro, because it does everything and I know how Adobe's stuff works. I keep an eye on free/ open source stuff though as I like free stuff.

Thanks all for the advice and I'll explore those options. I can feel a long running retirement project coming on, for winter months when I'm not away skiing. snowHead

One lesser known fact is that you can get Black Magic Design's Da Vinci Resolve for free, by getting their 'free version'. The features which make the paid version paid are irrelevant to most people doing amateur stuff - so it's by far the most powerful free video software you can get for home video editing.

What do people use on their Macs? I'm running a 27" with an i5 and 24GB of RAM so should have a decent bit of horsepower.

haha, if you only want to do some basic editing such as cutting, trimming, removing the unwanted parts, add subtitles, etc. Joyoshare Media Cutter that I'm using now would be the best video editing software for PC and Mac. Easy to operate and it won't encode videos and thus no data loss. Very Happy
