    Default Ultra Newbie Question on Editing

    Hi All,

    I'm hoping to learn two super basic things about video editing of large video files such as movies.

    1) Is there free software that will do allow cut and trim functions? and -

    2) Assuming Q1 is yes, is there any free software that can more or less instantly save the resulting piece without effecting quality?

    I have tried MS Movie Maker, and CyberLink Power Director. Neither seems to satisfy the above, and particularly look as though they would take an eternity to do a large movie file. I'm looking for a free and quick cut and snip program.

    Is there such a thing?

    Thanks in advance!

    OK may be there is no such thing for free...

    How about ANY editor that allows for a real quick edit and save to remove unwanted chunks of the film.

    For example, I just tried IBN Video Splitter (demo version). It opens the movie quickly, and saves fairly fast, but it increased the size of the output file by over 1000%.

    So, eliminating the "free" part of the question - is there any editing software that can more or less instantly do an edit and save the original without changing it or adding compression?

    Thanks
