    I wanted to make some really cool vids when the game comes out. Is there any software anyone knows about for purchase that is really easy to use and has good features? I know there are free ones around, however im looking for higher quality programs. I want to be able to make little cartoons and add special affects to darkfall vids etc.

    I think Adobe Premiere And Sony Vegas are the top two for video making.

    As far as them being easy to use that kind of depends on you.

    I've only used Vegas myself so I don't know how Adobe Premiere really stands in the lineup. You'll probably want to check out tutorials for both if you get one or the other.

    Ultra Combo, please make topics in their respective subforums. Questions about recording software are more fit for the Darkfall Online Video Section. Topics about computer parts and builds belong in the offtopic section.

    sorry I just thought general discussion ment... generally discuss things about gaming like video software and computers. Seemed like the right place to discuss my topics.

    When I was busy playing around with video editing I really loved Sony Vegas.
    It's not the easiest to use right away if you compare it to software like Windows Movie Maker but you'll have a lot more options.

    Ya while researching this looked like a good one. Is it a good program for adding special effects? like taking a picture adding flames to it or explosions etc?

    If you want to add lots of effects After Effects might be the software you want. But it can be quite complicated i think.

    Premier or Vegas. I am going to suggest vegas because there are seemingly moving parts, and a smaller learning curve. Both are powerful tools. You could make a hollywood production out of either of those. Go with vegas first. You'll be glad you did.

    For special effects you should look into After Effects.
    I suggest that you look into Vegas first though, you can do a lot of things with it and you're going to need it for video editing in general.
    The special effects is more like a specialization. You can do many simplistic effects with Sony Vegas so you don't need any other software for that. Good luck!

    This makes me feel like I won't want to watch your videos.

    Don't overdue it with special effects, they can make or break videos.

    I want special effects to be able to make funny intros to my videos. SHort movies that have humor or in some way relate to whatever in game footage I am able to capture. Last but not least... I wanna use Andrews likeness in some of my movie intro's. He is after all the new Tasos.

    Adobe is harder to use than Sony Vegas but can give better results, I definitely suggest Vegas if you don't want to get too involved with learning how to edit. It's easier to learn independently.
