Ok, so reviving this thread might serve little purpose, but then again...

well, anyway, BDJ has an offer for MPEG Video Wizard DVD on 3rd September. The price is only $20 so pretty good offer (if the software is good that is!).

So I'm wondering if anyone's using this application regularly and if so, how happy you are with it? patteo..? I've used the trial for a few minutes and except from the interface (why not just go with regular windows GUI?!?) I must say that I really like this one. It seems quite simple, but looks to have all the features I need, so I might well go for it. Any opinions?

Well, I can't say I'm using it, not because it is not good but because I have not been doing any video editing for quite a long period of time.

I did have a question for the author at that point in time which is that I did not find any support for mov, the native format used in my Nikon Digital camera for which I wanted to do some editing.

So that was a hurdle for me then when I wanted to do some of that. And that was wow, maybe 3 years ago. Maybe things have changed for the better, then maybe not (change is not necessarily good).

So I would say, do check out what type of videos you need to edit and make sure it supports it - don't assume and of  course, download a trial and see how intuitive it is for you.

If you are not sure of anything else, do email the author. If I remember correctly, he was quite responsive.

And if you do decide to buy, let us know the outcome of that decision.

Thanks for your reply, patteo! Btw, there is a forum there now actually. And as you've said, the author seems very quick to respond and active, which is good. I'll just go on with the trial and see... :)

AviDemux along with ffmpeg or mencoder is an excellent, free, solution.

I use ProjectX for Mpeg2-editing. This prog has some really nice features like batch processing via collections, it´s free and open-source. Here you can find an enhanced version with langue files for english. The best feature is it´s ultra-fast 1:1 PID-cutting (only turn it on in the settings and raise the cachesizes).

Kate's Free beta VSplitter & beta Joiner & beta Converter are worth checking out. 

I looked long & hard for a free simple joiner app after Vista made my previous softwares unusable--& finally  found Kate.
 
Don't mind the name of the website: (page for the beta software:)
http://www.fakewebcam.com/vfcTK.asp

Main page.
http://www.fakewebcam.com/

They have several shareware products (like Kates' all in one Video Toolkit ($20)

The page says the beta software are trial & also free.  (They may be moving to share-basis?)
    Note the 'free' indicator by the 'buy baskets'. 


Chet
PS - Before finding Kate's (via a post at Lifehacker?) I purchased Replay Media Splitter (I have all their software).  It works fine too.

I second Ehtyar! Avidemux is not only free, but open-source as well.

MuldeR has a Windows build, screenshots, links to guides/tutorials, and this info:

Quote
Avidemux supports a great number of file types, including AVI, MPEG, MP4/MOV, OGM, ASF/WMV, MKV and FLV.
It also provides a great number of video filters, e.g. resize, deinterlace, IVTC, sharpen and denoise.
Furthermore Avidemux ships with various encoders built-in, such as x264, Xvid, LAME, TwoLAME and Aften.

Avidemux is currently my preferred editor for simple things, (I use an old version of Vegas for more complex things, eg. video/audio resyncing).

I think you'll find that most of the codecs in Avidemux are based on ffmpeg, (as is mencoder IIRC), via libavcodec.

About the only really annoying big bug, (which has been mentioned in the forums by myself and others), I find with Avidemux is it's complete inability to create an AVI file bigger than 4GB that works.

I use AviDemux quite a bit myself.  For just saving mpeg clips you can also use the Mpeg Tools that come in TMPGEnc free version.  It has nice simple mpeg muxing and demuxing and save selected range to a clip.  The original TMPGEnc is a bit outdated these days but the Mpeg Tools are easy to use and fast for some things.

MPC is playback only, apart from applying some on-the-fly video effects it can't do any video editing.

Strange spam - referring to a free program that's not able to do what the thread's about.  :D

If you are interested in Womble software you can download the full version from their website and the GAotD includes a serial code which works with the version from the website. Good news is that you aren't restricted to installing this for 24 hours!
