Is there a good free video editor out on the internet that is free and isn't a DEMO? Something that is easy to use, can edit video footage of a cell phone file 3GP. and MOV.? I can use Windows Movie Maker but i have to convert the file to a AVI. file so it Windows Movie Maker can edited it.

Thanks for the link! It has some great information. Its kind of hard to find information on Google now since they just give million of links and you don't know which ones are safe.

For Windows I've found that Windows Live Movie maker is almost the best free one you are going to get.

If you are willing to venture over to Linux then Kdenlive is IMO almost as good as the $300 programs for Windows or Mac.

I really like Windows and can't switch my primary OS, but I just have not been able to find any feature-full non-linear video editors for Windows. So I dual boot with Windows and Slackware.

I've heard great things about Lightworks. I don't know much about it but apparently it's been around for a while as a professional editing program, but it just recently went open source. It's been used to edit a lot of big movies. This is probably the most high-end professional editor you'll find for free. It's still in beta but you should give it a try (I would if I had Windows). The site says the Mac and Linux versions are coming Fall 2011.

Lightworks is now out of beta and there is a free version. There is also a pro version for not much (I think it's a subscription) but the free version has a very nice set of features and is still a professional style editor.

The only free video editor on windows i've ever used other than Movie Maker (NEVER use Movie Maker for ANYTHING) is VideoPad. Just google it. EDIT Sorry, i forgot, you have a 30 day free trial. Nope, Sorry there is no good free editors for Windows. Get Sony Vegas.

Sadly, there are not any quality video editors for Windows, the quality free video editor is iMovie. If you want to really get into video, and just edit gameplay videos, save some money up and buy Sony Vegas 8 for $300 on eBay.
