A/V Resources

WOW! I can't wait to dive into that list. Indulge me a minute if you will. Have you used any of the sources yourself. Do you have personal recomendations. This reason I ask. My computer time is usually limted (too many other obligations). I am a itermediate level PC user, not a programer. My skills dealing with video are limited, although pretty good with music and photo files, and of course PSG.
I have an interest in a moderate video editor, but one that I can grow with.
If anyone has suggestions please forward.
Thanks for the leads.

Thanks for sharing this list. I'm already having a blast with Atmosphere Lite. Two more freeware tools that I'd recommend:

GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program.


WAX - A video compositing and special effects software.
