DVD Flick is another good option. I had very good results with it.

I want to give Corel a try. I use another app by Corel, CorelDraw ! That's a nice program
I would not recommend trying the X3 version of Corel Video Studio as there was a major problem with the authoring module.It was so bad that Corel has now issued an different stand alone authoring program free to all purchasers of the v3 version. Unfortunately this module does not come with the trial version of the x3 program so you can't evaluate it first. If you look at this thread within the Corel Forum it will explain all.
Corel User to User Web Board • View topic - New authoring module for X3
In any case you don't really need this version unless you are talking high definition. I can't find where you can download a trial version of the x2 version, sorry!

You say you are saving it to a MOV. You can't just save a video file to another format without rendering it to that format with a video converter. Given that you have converted it why go for a MOV format. If you want to burn it to a DVD then the native format will be MPEG 2. This will enable you to burn it to a DVD without any loss of quality. With the right DVD authoring software you will have the choice to "Not re-render compliant mpeg files" so avoiding any loss.
I save it as a MOV using the save feature in Quicktime. But the file is huge.

I don't use Quicktime, it's one of my pet hates but do you get the option to save to any other format, if so which ones as I can't see any advantage in saving to a MOV file!

HI Spottedfeather
Had another thought. How about using Windows movie maker to cut, say a 4 minute clip from your video, putting it up on a server, sending me a PM with the URL and I will download and see what I can do with it with my range of video and audio software. If I can find the answer then I will just post my workflow!

In WMM, go to "Clip" and "Split". Then you publish the piece you want to retain. In WLMM, you have to go to "Edit".

I'm seriously close to giving up. I haven't found a free progam that will do what I want. Oh, well.
