Assuming you have Windows, you can use Windows Movie Maker to edit stuff. I don't know exactly what you're looking for, but it's free.

Adobe Premiere / Adobe After Effects / Adobe Photoshop for editting (can also burn dvd's...)

Macromedia Director for building DVD's and interactivity.

If you're feeling a bit pro-ish, go with Discreet's Combustion, been experimenting with that, and I'm starting to like it.

Ahh cheers mate, i've looked at the windows movie maker recommended above but its very slow at loadign fiels in, even a 10mb took almost 10mins, that was with a hardware profile i've been advised to create specifically for making/editting Movies.

wil give the others a look, will have to try gettign a demo from CNet or sumamt liek that.

Adobe offers 30 day trials.. not sure if macromedia does or not (i'm asuming they do).. and I know Autodesk offers 30 day trial for 3dsMax.. not sure about Combustion though.

Combustion is pretty sweet... however, unless you have a video editting / animation specific computer, I wouldn't recommend it at all (even my computer has problems with it.. and I have a video editting / animation computer, heh).

The good thing about the Adobe products, is that you don't actually fully import the movie file into the project, so it makes it alot faster loading up your project.
When you "import" the movie file, it is basically just "linking a shortcut" to the movie file in the project.

It all depends on what you want to do.
