"Many thanks for all your replies. I've so far been persevering with Windows Movie Maker as it is quite simple to use, although I'm finding my attempts at lip syncing from the existing footage kind of hard, which isn't helped by the…"

"Based on what you described, I strongly recommend you buy Dragonframe first. Maybe get the remote control too. After that, you can try editing your videos for free with Filmora or VSDC Video Editor. In the future, maybe get the 50$…"

"HI, I would recommend the following workflow: 1.Capture in any SW you like but DF seems to be the choice of many animators here. 2. Scale your SW in Blender or Fusion 8. Blender is entirely Open Source while Fusion is Closed Source but free( as long…"
