What programs do you use in the creation of your AMV's?

My programs:
AllToAVI - my video converting software.
AVIDemux - I use this to cut video from the .avi files I get out of AllToAVI.
VirtualDub - I use this in my final encoding of my creation and I use it to convert cut clips to uncompressed .avi so they can be used in anything.
Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 - this is my video editing/compiling software. I am still a noob at AMV creation so I dont know much of its features yet.
Super DVD Ripper - I think this is what it is called, use it to rip things from DVD's so I can use them in AMV's.
Audacity - I use this to cut clips out of audio if necessary.
Tunebite - used to remove the protection from iTunes bought audio files. Also converts said audio files to .mp3. Tis pretty nice to have.

Right now all I use are...

Xvid4PSP - convert my videos.

MS Paint - Anything that needs to be drawn I use MS Paint because I can't be bothered to learn how to use Photoshop.

VirtualDubMod - I use this in my final encoding of my creation when I convert my uncompressed .avi vids to Xvid, DviX, etc.

Sony Vegas Pro 8.0 - For the actual video editing and in the 2 months that I've been using it I've become a bit of a pro.

Particle Illusion 3.0 - Used to add particle effects like snow & explosions but it's a very dodgy program to work with.

Blender 2.48 - Once I get used to the program I'll use it for 3D modeling and rendering.

That's all for now but someday I would love to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects. More information can be found Here. ^_^

I originally used Windows Movie Maker, but then I moved onto Sony Vegas 8.0 Professional, and have used that ever since. =3
For DVD Ripping and such, I use DVDFab 5, and for converting eps (in rare cases) I use AnyVideoConverter.

My YouTube account that I used to upload AMVs is closed now, but I'll mention the applications that I used, and still possess. All, not in order of preference or current usage, nor importance:

  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS4
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS3
  • Adobe Premiere Pro CS2
  • Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended
  • Adobe Photoshop CS4
  • Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended
  • Adobe Illustrator CS4
  • Adobe Illustrator CS3
  • Adobe Soundbooth CS4
  • Aimersoft HD Video Converter
  • Acoustica Mixcraft 4.5
  • Acoustica Mixcraft 4.1
  • Acoustica Mixcraft 3.0
  • Sony Vegas Pro 9.0
  • Sony Vegas Platinum 9.0
  • Sony Vegas Pro 8.0

I haven't produced an AMV in a while now. I should get back into the swing it. Yeah, I prefer the interface of Sony Vegas more than Adobe Premiere, especially for the final output. Premiere has an uncomfortable-laced interface with a dreary look, not too far off Sony Vegas 9, which now adapted the grey-ish Adobe Premiere look. Still, Premiere contains features that Vegas does not have and vice-versa. I recommend people to have both.

I am pretty amateurish so i used to use a free based movie maker called avs4you which was alright until i paid for it and it soundly went bad on me since then I checked out all the movie makers on free trails and in the end i opted for Cyberlink Powerdirector 9 mainly because it allowed me to work with 95% of the anime that i had "downloaded" lol

AnyDVDHD and HandBrake for ripping DVDs and Blu-rays. OnlineVideoConverter for when I want to use something from YouTube. Vegas Pro 13 for the main editing. And Photoshop CS6 for certain voice syncing techniques that I can't do with just Vegas, putting together video thumbnails for YouTube and to advertise on other sites, and for other visual effects that I can create alongside Vegas' filters and video track options.

I use for music and getting clips from YouTube. For editing and effects, I normally use Sony Vegas Pro 13. There are times I want to use After Effects CC 2017, so in those cases, I use SVP13 for cutting clips and AE CC 2017 for effects.
