Hello,
Could you please give a recommendation for the best
software to buy to make a professional looking video ?
Something with scanned pics, video clips, quotes and
special effects.
Also what type of computer specs would be required ?
Would like to use a laptop if possible.
Thank you for your time.
Hi,

Will you be using a PC or a Mac?

Thanks,

Want to buy a new laptop and was all set to buy a Mac, but not that
impressed with my iPad.
Other than the iPad, only have a Chrome Book right now.
So, unless Mac is the best for this, then probably a PC.
This video is the most important thing, so any
recommendations would be great !
Ok, I understand.

If you buy an iMac, it will come bundled with movie creating software which is pretty good.

If you go with a PC, there is pretty much only one software you want to consider.
It is called Pinnacle Studio, and it is the De-Facto standard in video editing.

You can view and get it from:

Thank you !
Which level iMac would be the best?
Any laptop suggestions other than Dell ?
Hi,

If your core business for the laptop is video editing, you want a high-end machine.

One of the newer Macbook Airs will be ok, the Macbook Pro will be better.

If you are looking at a PC, make sure the CPU is at least Intel I7, and the memory is at least at 8GB of RAM.
