    Video editing software (freeware or next best)
    Hi there

    I have some videos of myself that are on DVD in some weird format.
    The videos are very long... 2 hours.
    I would like to pick and choose content and put them into 5 minute clips
    so that I can post them on youtube.

    What software should I get? I was looking for freeware but did not find anything good. I am running intel and not universal.

    I am also a student. Can I get a copy from the school lab or what should I do?
    Thanks!
    Dianne

    its great for editing for youtube, quite popular I've found. I use it myself as well.
    She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
    and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
    Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

    Correction. Universal simply means that the application has been coded in such a way as to run natively on either Intel or PowerPC. So, if it's labeled "Universal", you're good to go regardless of what kind of Mac you use.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    yes, but for beginners it really is, universal = intel...

    also i posted a very similar post about universal and intel in their other post...

    sorry for not being clear

    One more vote for iMovie. For what you want to do it sounds like the perfect application and the price is right as it comes with your Mac!
