While I have a few minutes with the PC powered up and the video card with the burned out cooling fan, with the help of a floor fan keeping it from not burning up until the new card arrives, I have a question.

I'm in need of some video editing and DVD production software. I've been using Windows Video Maker and Windows DVD Maker and they work great....but are pretty basic and limited.

A project I'm working on, I'd like to do some things I can't with the other. I'm looking at reviews and finding for < $100 I can get some decent stuff.

I'd like to be able to edit video, reverse, change speed etc., have flexibility in chapter creation, customize menu's, easily manage credits (import text would be great but at least allow be to manipulate it in the SW vs. what you have to do in Windows Video Maker) include photo slide show with audio on the DVD as an extra as well as a directory where people can pull the pictures off.

I have raw video from 3 different same performances and may need to edit in pieces of each one so whatever it takes to make that easier.

I don't think what I'm looking for is all that complex but there are several packages out there and thought maybe some of you have used some and have opinions.

Thanks in advance....

Sony Vegas and Vegas Pro is the best stuff I've found. Once you get the hang of it (just takes a little trial and error), it is pretty easy to use, but it gives you a ton of capability.

Bump.

Does anyone have recommendations for video frame capture software, preferably freeware?
