I have a potential client who wants to do a series of YouTube videos. I'm thinking I'd like to create a template for him and then teach him how to drop his footage into the bookends. I'd create the intro/outro, put a backing track down and a lower third, then show him how to do the rest as he goes. I thought Davinci Resolve might be a good solution for him to use since it's free, but after toying around with it, I see it won't import avi files and that's how I always export my lower thirds from AE so I can utilize the alpha channel.
Anyone have any experience with Premiere Elements? It's relatively cheap and I'm wondering if it would work.
