Hello. I've been a video journalist for years editing on Avid and sometimes Edius (and even front-panel editing on tape before that!). So I've become accustomed to editing very quickly on a timeline, using mostly shortcut keys to make basic in/out/cuts to slightly more fancy things like freeze frames, slow-mos, titles, audio mixes, rippling edits, etc.
I'm now on a sabbatical and looking to do a few personal editing projects from home using a mix of video (avi, mp4, wmv). I've searched for hours but can't seem to find a reasonably priced (under 100 or even better, free) video editing software programme that can do the above mentioned basics, which isn't heavily dependent on drag/drop mouse editing (which I find frustratingly slow and RSI-inducing).
Any suggestions from you experts and enthusiasts out there would be much, much appreciated!
