After reading teh many pages on DC pertaining to video editing software, I decided to start a new thread.

I am looking for something that offers more than Windows Movie Maker but remains free.  My daughter is well versed in WMM but in her class at school they are using imovie on a Mac which is frustrating for her a windows user.  So tonite I set out to find that proverbial windows FREE software that will do at the very least as much or more than WMM and very similar to imovie.

if possible it should be able to save in .mov format and hopefully it could burn a cd or dvd that any player, computer could read without problems.

I realize I am asking a lot and after spending the last hour searching these forums, google, I don't seem to be getting anywhere.  Surely such a thing exist?  or not?  :tellme:

I anxiously await an answer from the geeks and experts at the DC forums 8)

Not really. No. VirtualDub comes the closest for the "de facto" freeware.
