Default Looking For The Most User-Friendly Video Editing App

Hello.

As said in title, I have a couple of family MPG videos I want to edit. I'm not really into something fancy, all I want is a good control of editing chapters, adding some titles with some nice effects, and video-quality and color control

Since I'm new in this business, I'm looking for a for a simplistic, user-friendly app, yet useful and thorough.

Thanks in advance.

Good day

I assume you're using Windows? I haven't really done any movie editting on a PC...so I can't really answer you there. But iMovie for the MAC is amazing easy. Pretty sure my mom (who knows nothing about movie editting) could use it.

for windows xp -- windows movie maker is very simple with some pretty good features, decent rendering options, and its free.

for simple stuff i often times use it instead of opening up adobe after effects.

Thanks everyone. As long as you can add titles, subtitles, some effects, music and render options - I'm settled with WMM.

Yeah, I'd say that's your best bet.
