I really want to get into making videos, trailers, edit videos, with sounds and special effects, flying texts, etc so I thought of asking here for help from the creative minds of TRF to get started and into it. ;)

What sort of programs do you use ?
Are there any books I can read ? websites I can check ? tutorials ? anything that I could use to start, learn and get better in video editing and making trailers.

I've always used Windows Movie Maker. But that is like a lollipop.

well it really depends on what kind of videos you wanna make/edit.:) there are heaps of tutorials on youtube about text effects and other effects.

I use Sony Vegas...so if you use that too I'd be glad to help:)

Thanks Jacob, I will surely do more search on whats out there and will check out Sony Vegas. :)

Tampi, I know Windows movie maker, and I use it, but I find it rather too simple. I want something where I can add rich colors, animations, texts, borders, etc
but thank you and thailand for your answers and help :)

You could always check out some tutorials on Adobe AfterEffects and see what you can do with it. It's mostly for adding special effects to videos however I wouldn't suggest editing a video with it. For editing as CerebralAssassin suggested you should use Soni Vegas :p You can try downloading a 30 day trial version of it, have to warn you that the full version is quite pricey :o
