Can anyone suggest some free video editing software that handles .mov videos? I'd like to be able to take .mov videos from my digital camera, splice them together, add text in various places, add background audio (music or commentary), that type of thing.

Is there a free, simple program that would do that for me? I barely know anything about video stuff so pardon the newbiness, thanks!

parently, the "free" methodology is to convert the MOV file to MPEG - edit as an MPEG - then convert back to MOV or whatever.

Free

Anyway - it's worth a bump. :)

Thanks for the reply, that'll be good to keep in mind. I was looking some more and downloaded the AvidFreeDV program listed in the freeware post, seems to be able to import my .mov files and be able to do the simple stuff I want. I'm going to make a video of my travels in Europe this summer, this could be fun to play with!
