I want to create video clip with merged time-lapse short videos and a soundtrack accompanying it. I would prefer as short a learning curve as possible and a rapid way to accomplish this. Adobe Premiere, but it seems too expensive for something I will barely use.
My upload speed is too slow for online video editing (1Mb/s - 120 KB/s), so I prefer to do everything on my local 2.6 Ghz dual core Intel processor based laptop with 8GB of RAM. I already have 2 5-7 second time lapse videos, 30 short videos and over 500 photos to choose from and only need to glue everything into over 4 minutes of soundtrack playback. I could use more soundtracks if needed of course but I want there to be transition between soundtracks. Videos were shot in 3GP and MOV formats.
I appreciate your help and guidance as well as information on software (I very much prefer free or open source) I should use to accomplish this project.
