I am interested in cutting down some videos to use in my sequencing and have no software to do it.
What are peoples recommendations for free editing software, I only really want to cut it down and then save a smaller file.
Or maybe make a video from some photos or what have you. Like windows movie maker used to do.
Anyone know of anything?

...Corel VideoStudio for reasonably priced software...
+1 for Corel VideoStudio. It is powerful enough that I use it for MIni video editing, but not so powerful that it has too many menus and buttons to make it confusing. The Pro edition is currently AU$69 with Black Friday 30% off. Ultimate edition is $90 (adds some extra fancy effects and transitions, basically).

Thanks guys, I must admit I am guilty of not even looking at the wiki in some time, I think I must spend some time and look through it again.
I wouldn't mind spending money on something I was going to use a lot, but as I only ever want to cut a videa or fluff around once in a blue moon, I figured there would be something I could get for free.

if you have video and wishing to cut out a segment for playing on a matrix etc then MS movie maker works fine.
Its free and if you are running windows all good.
May need to download it. has been good for me.

I would love too as I used to use it, but it hasn't been available for some time and doesn't work on windows 8 or 10
