Ok,

List of video editing software.

I use Ubuntu which ships with PiTiVi, I often use OpenShot for video editing (including chorma key/green screen stuff).

If you don't mind using a command line interface on windows the ffmpeg tool is very powerful and very quick. I've yet to try using VLMC from the people who make VLC, though I've heard positive things about it.

Great! I will give it a go.
Many thanks for taking the time to look into that for me

I used handbrake to digitise all DVD's to ipad and PS3 suitable formats. Not used it for a while, but will be sure to download and play with this latest version.

No problem, if you go down the ffmpeg route let me know if you need a hand.

Cheers
