Hi,

Is there anyone that can reccommend software for adding pictures or filmclips to a song? to make into some sort of 'video' to go alone with one's own song?

I only used windows media maker, and i am tired of that

Now I'm not sure if this will help
I don't use Windows or Mac. I'm an open source advocate and am currently using Linux "Fedora-12 CCRMA RT Kernel" for all my audio recording. The learning curve is steep but as the software is free.......... ;D
For video I've played with a program called 'Kdenlive' which is a basic real time video editor.
I have neither the talent or the time to delve deep into the weird world of video but here is an area to explore if you're bored, have lots of time to spare and want to experiment.  ;)   http://www.kdenlive.org/

Leave the evil empire  and join the rebel alliance.  ::)

Mihkay!

Good man for advocating the dark side. I've been a linux user for the last 5 years or so (Although I have to confess I do my music recording on my old mac...)

I've had no luck with video editing on linux though - youtube rejected all my videos... :(

What distro? I've been through loads of them! Ubuntu, puppy, zenwalk, slackware, mint and back to ubuntu again!

I understand. As I typed 'distrowatch' into by browser I didn't realise that I would be lost in Linux land forever.... ::)

But having tried almost everything, I use Fedora, basically because it was the one my girlfriend used so my dumb newbie questions could be sorted easily and I've stuck with it. But the Stanford University version comes complete with a huge collection of music software. Hours of fun. For details, follow this link.  http://ccrma.stanford.edu/planetccrma/software/

thanks for the detailed advice, Mikhay! :)

very good, but I am afraid that my computer skills are to limited to go this road, the Linux way, and the "steep learning" curve you mention is holding me back

but I am sure the option you suggest is good

thanks  8)

Not always the case. But the option is free.   ;D
