FREE video editing software

Hi All,

I would like to know if anyone has a place where I can get a good FREE video editing program.  Prefered options/file supports include: MPG, AVI, MOV, WMV, MP3, WAV, WMA, JPG, BMP, and GIF.

I would prefer it to be able to edit the movie and be able to insert picture file and sound clips.

I know its not likely to find something this good and technically advanced for free, but I would appreciate any suggestions!!  Thanks,

BD

You may try for free virtualdub (www.virtualdub.org), but it's not what you want. It can do some multiplexing, demuliplexing, splitting and joining video file, but it's not an editor. I'm afraid you wont find anything for free in video editing for Windows. There is a video editor for Linux, if you're interested: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lvempeg/

Looks like Windows Movie Maker supports all these file types

you will also find that 'windows movie maker' (suggested by Yukele above) will do a pretty fine job of inserting your images and audio clips too, its a really nice feature for a FREE program (providing you own windows XP) and once you insert your image or audio or both you have control of all the usualls, such as semi transparency, fadeing in/out, desiered lengh etc. And if you are on SP2 then your built in copy of Movie Maker will have been updated too.
you will find movie maker under 'accessories' in all 'programs' so if you havent all ready its well worth trying it out.


BUT.....You will most likely given time find it a bit restricting and fairly bland and if you do decide to purchase a movie editing suite in the future I would recomend The Sony Vegas Range, or Adobe Premier Pro.
Windows Movie Maker though is a great starting point for video editing and I never understood why Microsoft never really made its existance clear at the begining (of XP that is)
