Hello fellow board members and moderators!

I am a teacher who is trying to edit a documentary I recorded using a DVD recorder for presentation in my class. The DVD-R disk plays fine in my PC, but I need to edit the commercials from the recorded program.

Does anyone have recommendations to an easy to use video editing program, and if so, could someone briefly outline the steps on how to perform this task? I consider myself to be digitally savvy when it comes to understanding new applications, I just need a jump start of sorts in the right direction.

I certainly appreciate any help or suggestions the board community might be able to share with me.

Assuming that this falls under "Fair use" (Title 17)

I can tell you how I do it using Nero 6 Ultra Edition, and Screenblast Movie Studio. (Neither are free)

I use Nero Startsmart, > "Photo & video" >" Make Your Own DVD Video" > "Import Disc". Choose the drive that your DVD is in. Nero will now rip audio/video files from the DVD.
When it's finished, You should be able to choose titles from the "Import titles from Disc" feature. (If you set the chapters ahead of time)
Highlight the desired titles and click OK. This will rip the audio/video from the DVD to your hard drive. They should be an MPEG-2 format

If you don't get audio when you open the file in your editor, use Nero to export the file,

In NeroVision Express, highlight the video and click the "Edit Movie" icon.
At the bottom, click the "Export" button. Choose the "output file" (destination) for your video.
Click "configure" > "DVD Video" tab. Change the audio format from "automatic" to
"LPCM" click OK. Then click the "Export" button.

I open the video files in Screenblast Movie Studio to split the events and delete the unwanted footage. Tho, I suppose you could do the same thing in Nero.
Using the "Edit Movie" feature.

Then re burn the edited version to DVD.

I don't know of any free video editing software. Sorry.
