rpreiss,

If you're on WinXP or Vista, I am going to recommend Windows Movie Maker. It's free, it's fully functional and simple to use, and if you have XP SP2 or Vista, you already have it installed. You can select your sections, merge them into a single timeline, create transitions and fades, add text, etc.

It's rare for M$ to put out something solid and worthwhile, but in this case they created something I can recommend.

If you'd prefer a non-Microsoft solution, one of these should work.

Hey lherrou, I'm thinking, Word, PowerPoint, Outlook/Express...then it gets a bit thin. You know I'm not a WMM fan, but the truth is I'm still not sure whether there's a bug in mine or if WMM is just generally buggy. But well worth a try especially for wmv files.
By the way, rpreiss, 'merge' is not a cool word (I'm not too sure whether cool is even a cool word) -- but the word is 'edit'.

Get down dog,

The Shovel

Hey FredShovel,

I don't use Outlook/Express, due to the many years of extreme vulnerability to every nasty that came along. Excel, Powerpoint, yes... (Word wasn't better than Word Perfect, just more dominant). But I do use WMM, I've created presentations for clients in the legislature, video clips for websites, etc. Haven't run into any major bugs along the way.
