I need some help with options for our wedding video. We didn't have a professional videographer tape our wedding as we were spending a large amount on our photographer. We received a video camera as a gift so had a friend tape our wedding. Now I'm home and don't know how to make it into a nice video...I have uploaded all the files, combined them together and there's about 35 minutes worth of footage. We had the volume turned up and so there's some background static that I don't know how to get rid of and I would like to turn this "home movie" into a more professional looking video.


I know that Adobe sells a software package, Adobe Premiere Elements 8, but I had bought Adobe Elements 8 for creating digital scrapbooks and I haven't even begun to learn how to use it. I heard there is a steap learning curve and I'm not so savy with this type of stuff so I'm wondering if it's easier to hire someone. I just don't want to spend a lot of money as that's what we were trying to avoid in the first place.


Any advice?

hey Karen,


it might be worth your time to inquire about pro editing. The learning curve isn't too bad. You can use a program like iMovie but it just takes a lot of time and patience. There is an art to editing and telling the story.


Good luck!!
