i know of windows movie maker which ive used and with nero to burn to dvd
works great, but i want to go beyond this with more a pro type software...
can anyone recommend a decent video editing software....

i want to edit out lengths of video and also make a theme like for DVD so i can use it like movie maker but
on top of that i want to have changing pictures under the playing video..

so its playing background music and showing a muted video and then showing images under that ?
anything that might do this ???

    No need to ask a question twice...

    Check out Premiere Elements. It provides much of the power of the $700 Premiere Pro, but it's easier to learn and doesn't have the hefty price tag (it's $100, or you can get it bundled with Photoshop Elements for $150)

    You also have the option for Ulead video studio  or pinnacle studio. (comes in similar price ranges.  50 - 100 bucks.

    premiere is good, so are these others, just make sure it captures the video at 720 x 480.

    avid has a free suite for editing now:

    sony's vegas video has some great qualities. , might be easier than premiere elements.

    if you are wanting to get into audio too, this is a good package

    or try this:
