looking for some advice. I'm looking for a (ideally) free editor that gives similar functionality as offered by Windows Movie Maker (I find it quite easy to use and it meets my needs) but that can cope with AVCHD (M2TS) and MP4 files in the same piece of edited footage with no issues publishing to the most common formats. as I say I don't require anything fancy, basic cropping, fades, text/audio insertion etc.

ideally looking for something that's completely free i.e. not 30 day trial with some features limited.
