Anyone recommend a good piece of freeware that will allow me to do very basic video editing?

Pinnacle Studio V9 or onwards. You need a good PC as it takes ages to convert to a DVD format. By the way its more than a few hours to get into it the subject. Studio is not free, there are no really good free progs. Other not free progs Ulead, Adode Elements are supposed to be good. David

Windows Movie Maker will certainly do basic editing.

If you subsequently wish to burn a DVD from the movie, then DVD Flick will do the job.

Both are free.

You could also try "VLC Media Player" which has a wizard to transcode VOB,MPEG and AVI files.
"Prism" is another encoder.
"Media Coder" transcodes to MPEG 1 so that you can then edit the files in "Virtualdub" frame by frame and then save to AVI or MPG files.
"CDCheck" will repair faulty files
"Mediajoin" will join AVI files together.
"CombiMovie" will join MPG files together.
"Sothink Movie Maker" and "DVD Flick" will convert the AVI or MPEG files to a DVD format.
Virtualdub can also correct any sound which is out of sync with the film.
"GSpot.exe" is good for checking bad joints or faults in a file.
All the above programs are FREE.
Hope this helps.
