I have the following situation: - I need to create a movie in the format .mov or .mp4 on Windows 8. - As sources I have already 10 .mov files in a format 1600x1200 on Windows8. (originals) - I need to speed up some parts of my video up to 30 from the original. - I need to export the constructed video again as 1600 x 1200 in .mov or .mp4 with the same quality as the originals.

I tried to do this already with my tools I already have, but I did not succeed: My Software: - Microsoft movie maker - Handbrake - Movie Studio Platinum 13.0 - Windows8

I like the simple MovieMaker, but it cannot handle/produce 1600*1200. Also Movie Studio Platinum 13.0 can't produce 1600*1200 and I am not able to speed up the video more then 4x.

Any hints ?


My Speeduf problem is solved, but I am still searching for a performant reliable software to create videos in the format 1600*1200. I have Movie Studio Platinum 13.0 which is unusable. It produces black screens in some parts of the video and it lags. I have a high performant computer with 24GB of ram.

Can someone suggest any software ?

    Do you mean speed it up 30x, or speed it up to 30 fps? What is the original frame rate? – Jim Mack May 21 '16 at 11:43
  • Does Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve support 1600 x 1200 ? – audionuma Mar 13 at 18:50
  • Resolve requires Windows 10. Windows 8 is a strange and unfortunate choice, but, whatever. – Michael Tiemann Jun 13 at 12:55

Two free and open-source video editors are, Kdenlive and OpenShot. They were originally only on Linux but recently got betas for Windows. You will need to install a couple of libraries for the software to run but one should work for you.
