    Looking for a recommendation for a basic video editor. Trim and maybe some slow motion control. AVCHD in and HD output.

    Thanks.

    If Windows Movie Maker isn't doing it for you, then Sony Vegas, for sure. Of course, there are many other good options, so if your local store has another program on sale, like Adobe Premiere Elements, Pinnacle, etc. Luckily, you can always download a trial of the program, use it for a week or so, and if you don't like it, do a trial of another.

    Thanks. I downloaded a copy of Movie Maker but it doesn't ingest the native file format. I didn't even think about a trial version. I'm going to give Elements a try.

    Serif Movie Plus seems to be highly regarded by some in my camera club - and you can often pick up older versions (X5 is the current one I think) cheaply on Amazon

    Update: It seems X6 is now the latest - X5 should be available even more cheaply.

    I'm using Elements and Cyberlink's PowerDirector. PowerDirector has support for HW acceleration, which I haven't found in any package at this price point. Previews are real time, and it's very snappy. Elements is more user friendly for putting together short movies with music etc, but editing is much slower.

    Lightroom 4 also has basic editing functions.
