Posted:Hi folks
Just curious if anyone knows of any good video editing freeware/shareware?

I've got some digital video footage which I want to piece together and edit whilst also setting it to some music - nothing fancy.

Any ideas? Or is this something you have to pay for?

Posted:Yep yep - had a play in the garden today, pranced around in front of the camera for a bit then saw what could be done with it.
It all seems nice and squeezy, although stupidly tried to film tails in the wind so alot were just clips of me swearing... Also a bit annoying that I can only take up to 30 second clips, but I'm only trying to put together a quick "montage" (sp?) of stuff - a sort of mini showcase for BT.

I'll bring the camera on Thursday and get some fire/beamer/glow stuff.

Posted:There is one site you can try called download.com where you can find free software and music. When it lists up the type of software your looking for there a search filter at the bottom of the screen which will allow you to list the free software. You will see what I mean when you use it. I recently downloaded some free music editing software and an music converter. Would have cost me about 50 if I'd had to buy. biggrin
The address is http://www.download.com/
br>Hope this helps. biggrin

Posted:www.videohelp.com has hundreds of tools for transcoding and editing, many are free (you can manke it a search criteria). Virtual Dub should do what you want as long as there is a direct show filter you can use to decode the quicktimes. It's pretty straight forward. It will do the transcode to DV video which you can then edit on almost anything, Even Windows movie maker if you have to.... infact check that out it might do QT files (.mov), on XP it's under the start/programs/accessories
