    FREE video editing programs?

    I recently got myself an HD camcorder. Nice infact, I enjoy it alot. But the downside is it only records in .mov quicktime format. Which I cannot edit in windows. My default option here was to try and use Windows Movie Maker. Of course it can't import it.

    I have tried to convert the video files to WMV but this doesn't work either because of a missing format error.
    Is there any Free video editing software for windows that I can edit Quicktime in? I don't want to cash out 50+ for some program. Just a waste of my money if i already spent $270 on a camera.

    Such a pain in the ass. Damn you apple.

    PS: I use Windows XP

    You'll be hard pushed to find a good free video editor.

    I doubt that the camera will record exclusively in .mov format, what camera is it?

    Hmm, seems odd that they ONLY let you record in .mov format, normally you get a choice.
    Ok then, what are you using to convert the videos?

    Nothing at the moment. I couldn't find ONE free converter online that converted .mov except for a website called zamzar. And even then, when i converted the video file, move maker still couldn't edit the video. So I just upload the .mov to youtube. Without being able to edit. Here's one that i uploaded from the direct file.

    But yea, the camera gives no option that i'm aware of. You can record in HD, HD 60 FPS and VGA

    No format options. Records everything in .mov
