For example, say I have a 30 second clip, but I'm only interested in saving the part between 6 and 11 seconds. The rest is junk. Is there a free program that can split these video files for me? I would prefer it to be a full program, and not one that leaves some watermark to encourage you to buy the full program. Thank you.
When I'm asking for help, please explain, in detail, every step. Thank you :).
I have nightmares about computer glitches and bugs.

Why not just use Microsoft Movie Maker 2.1. It does exactly what it says on the tin if all you want is a basic edit and the compression is handled reasonably well so storage of files is not a huge issue.

If you are on Mac I'm pretty sure you can still get iMovie as a free download if you look around.

No problem, just be aware that it IS basic. For example, if you've got a decent camcorder that uses Dolby 2.1 or even surround it may give you some problems, including no sound, dodgy sound or even image problems for some reason - including playing them upside down. If it turns into a 'mare and you want a low-cost solution go for a Dazzle converter, the primary reason being you get some fairly good edit software and you can capture the vid at various speeds including slow playback by simply pausing the capture and starting it at the lower speed. Overall this avoids having to buy upgrade plug-ins and so on to do pretty much the same thing.
