Does anyone have a recommendation on good video (DVD) editing software?

I have need to eliminate the static, or interference I happened to get during a record.
I would like to crop, as KY3 took it upon them selves to scroll the weather report during my recording session.
I would like to do fade in and fade outs on existing data.
I would like to also edit sound.

Jim,
One good video editing program is Adobe Premier Elements. It has excellent sound editing capabilities and good visual transitions. As for cropping capabilities, they are limited to slightly resizing the video frame. Re. static - are you referring to video noise or to audio noise or something else?

I'm refering to video noise.

Will adobe run under XP Home?
How do I try before buy?

Will adobe allow an edit of a DVD (Video ts.bup, Video ts.ifo, Video ts.vob files) or do I need a file converter?

Jim,
Video noise is often caused by 60 hertz pickup in your method of capture. Go to http://www.cinemasource.com/articles/gnd_loop.pdf
for some info about the problem. To pin down the exact source of the interference might take some doing...
Adobe Premier Elements will run on XP and there is a 30 day trial available at http://www.adobe.com/products/premiereel/tryout.html
Most file conversions are built into Adobe Premier Elements.
