    Yes, I've seen your previous movies. I've been using an old but simple program, Serif Movie Plus. It's gone out of production and was made for Windows XP but I now have it working on Windows 10. I tried that Power Director, before, and didn't like it because video clips could not be separated with a gap or other material, nor could they be made to slightly overlap to create a slow transition from one clip to the next. When I removed it from the computer, a window popped up, asking me why I was removing it. I told them about the problem and they responded that they would work on that for a future edition. I see they have now updated it.

    Anyway I downloaded a trial copy and see they fixed that problem. I gave it a try and it looks like an excellent program. I don't care to take videos, myself, so I only use my Movie Plus to help a friend. She goes bottle digging and metal detecting. She uploads her clips to YouTube, unlisted, for me to download and fit the clips together and put a polish to it. Then I upload the finished video to her account. It does all I need but I do like the Power Director. Shelling out nearly $70 for it, seems a waste to me because I won't be using it for anything else. Slide shows suit me but Movie Plus will do that, too.

    Ah yes, I used a Serif editing program for my pics couple years back. Did for a long time but got a new comp last year then it wouldn't work so I got Gimp. Then discovered lightroom. Both are nice programs.

    Same with windows movie maker, not on new computer so I just bought powerdirector so I'd have everything I need.

    Now I just need to make more videos. :D

    One I did last year. I like the structural stuff. I need to get to downtown Los Angeles for a few pics. 30 miles from here but crappy traffic, not sure if it's worth the drive. :D

    This is Claremont Ca.
