I am very new but i do have quite a few programs. I used my tv tuner to dload that episode of Star Trek where capt Picard gets captured by the borg and they get him back and blow up the borg ship. I got it in 4 parts to avoid some of the advertising. But being new I messed up a bit so there is still some material to edit out. Its in avi format. Plays back nicely in winamp and looks pretty good. I have a P4 2.4 gig rig w win xp pro sp1 and a dvd burner. The total sum of the 5 files i captured is only 3 gigs.
So my question is.Since i have access to just about any program but i dont need professional results, only standard, What video editing programs could i use? Good, better, and best programs would be helpful for now and in future. And any advice would be helpful since i am a real newbie at this. An example of advice might be to leave it in avi format or change it to another format?
Thanks in advance for all kindly advice given.
