Hello, there are a lot of movies I can't watch with my family due to nudity, there is this movie where they show you tits only once in the movie so how can I cut that out? which software can I use?

I personally use Adobe After Effects and it's a beast. It can do pretty much everything you want it to. It just takes a little time to get used to the UI and all that.

easy way is windows move maker live....

not the best but it has always gotten the job down in a very EASY way for my noobish video edits... I've made custom DVD menus and my own videos with my own sound

Windows movie maker will do it for you; but you may have to convert the format back to avi (for example) afterwards.

After Effects is a) expensive b) difficult to use.

I had a go with it to try to do some simple work on a home video. After an hour I was almost in tears trying to understand how it works. I use Photoshop daily, but the knowledge doesn't carry over.

For something as simple as cutting a movie like the OP wants to do is not really "difficult to use". There's tons of videos on YouTube that show you how to cut parts of a movie and it's quite easy to do. If he wants to cut parts of a movie, he will then have to compile the movie afterwards which Windows movie maker is terrible at because it compresses the video so much that it looks awful. AE is good at compiling videos without affecting the quality too much. He can download the trial and play with it.

I'm sure what you've said is true but it feels a little like recommending Photoshop to rotate an image!

Personally I use both Adobe After Effects and Camtasia for all my video edits wink.gif

Again for easiest to use GUI stick with the free Windows movie maker, it's as basic as they come, but still gets results wink.gif

Simply load film file eg: AVI MP4 etc etc .. then find the offending image you wish to move, delete it .. and render film save as ( AVI , MP4, MPEG 4, etc etc .. )
watch and enjoy smile.gif

For best results use custom save settings to really tailor the sound and video reproduction quality for your video.

Watched a movie called Lucky Number Slevin with my family, massive sex scene, full nudity at around 19min FAIL
It was the only sex scene in the entire movie, I don't see why it is necessary and it was Slevin describing the 3 problems he encountered, I mean like it was not necessary at all frown.gif From now on I'll just read parental guidelines on IMDb before watching, to avoid suck awkward moments smile.gif
