Free video editing software

    Hi there!
    I have Adobe video editing software, but find my system is too slow to use it comfortably. Video clips taken with my camcorder in MP4 format are jerky even when just playing them (though not when playing using quicktime player). Can anyone recommend free video editing software that doesn't hog too much memory?


    When you say MP4, do you mean AVCHD or standard definition?

    If AVCHD, you're going to need to update your computer to edit it without slowdown, probably to the highest spec available at the moment. One of the downsides of AVCHD I'm afraid, which is why I stuck with HDV.

    VirtualDub is pretty good and free and a little more powerful than Windows Movie Maker
