Hoping that the fine people of ES could point me to some software.
What I'd like is something I can use to modify video files. (Like avi, wmv, and rm files.) Mostly, the ability to cut portions out of the files. Ideally this would be free software, although something that would allow me some trialware would be OK (I'm not allergic to paying for shareware, for example), but I have to confess to being reluctant to plunk down Big Bucks for something and then finding out if it will work or not.
And I have to admit, I don't know if software like that is common, or if it's expensive, or if it the various media copyright people have succeeded in simply making it impossible.
