Editing Video?

I am in the process of transferring a bunch of home movies to DVD and needed some recommendations on editing software.

I have already transferred a bunch of digital video from a camcorder and now I just bought a Dazzle to transfer analog.

What's the best software for trimming the video of dead parts?

What's the best for re-encoding to DVD?

Right now the digital video I have is excellent quality and I want to retain as much quality as I can when I transfer it to DVD.

If you have a Mac: Final Cut

If you have a PC: Sony Vegas or Adobe After Effects (which is pretty complicated). For a simpler editing program, try Ulead or Pinnacle.

After Effects is not a editor but a compositing program. You're thinking of Premiere Pro. Adobe Premiere Elements is good entry-level editor.
