You might also want to take a look at Ubuntu Studio. These are special repackagings of Ubuntu Linux with multimedia applications included. This might be the easiest starting place, since you can just run the installer from the CD image and get a whole Ubuntu machine with the multimedia apps at once.

My experience with LiVES is that computing horsepower matters a lot. You want to run these applications on the fastest machines you can get.

Under an hour doesn't seem all that "late" to me!

My daughter wanted to make an AMV, and we gave both programs a try. Forget LiVES; use Cinelerra. It's much faster at loading and seems more intuitive as well.

I am confused. Are these OS's like Windows or are they just programs, especially Ubuntu? Also, do these programs allow particle effects? I'm interested in creating what this MAD video has done, all the text disappearing into sparkles, illustrations rotating and zooming in/out, etc.

Both these are "open-source" programs than run in Linux. (Migufuchi asked for "freeware," which both of these are.) They do not, as far as I know, run in Windows or OS X.

Ubuntu is a Linux "distribution," a package of software including the Linux operating system and hundreds of programs that run on Linux. While in the Windows world it's customary to buy additional software beyond the operating system, Linux distributions package together a wide variety of free software written for the Unix platform or specifically for Linux itself. Ubuntu Studio, that I referenced above, is a repackaged version of standard Ubuntu that includes a number of specific programs for graphics and, I think, video work. You can download so-called "live-CD" versions of distributions like Ubuntu or Fedora. You can boot from the CD and try out either of these distributions without altering your current machine.

I haven't used LiVES or Cinelerra hardly at all, myself. I've used LiVES a couple of times but found it slow and clunky. Cinelerra seems much faster for basic tasks. The only way to know what specific effects these programs offer would be to read the documentation at the programs' websites that I referenced above.

Windows Movie Maker while not really the best program out there, it's readily available because it comes with Windows.

Yes I agreee with that, you can only do so much until it drives you insane b/c you want to do more cool stuff. At least that is what happened to me about 3-4 years ago when I started to buy the Adobe and Maya products.

Windows movie maker is a great place to start though, then after awhile it's time to move on

WMM has some basic effects such as fades to white/black, dissolve, and control brightness which can be combined to make effects such as flashing. You can also download other effects that don't come with WMM but is compatible with WMM such as invert, flicker pulsate, and other cool things if you search hard for it.

AviSynth + VDub + Aegisub (+ AE if you need it) does the trick.

hf!

In my case, it drove me insane by crashing every ten to fifteen minutes. After that, I stopped making AMVs since I just couldn't take it anymore.

And well, although I can't say that Video editing is as easy as using Paint ( I mean, come on, how hard can PAINT be? ), Windows Movie Maker does make it simpler for the "everyday" user. If you want to take the next step, then you'll probably want to look into more specialized programs like Premiere, Vegas and etc.

Avisynth to load video, aegisub to make the subtitles, and virtualdub to encode the video.
