There seems to be only one which will do the basic stuff for HD, by Avidemux http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/
. There is also Video Thang but I can't find much on that.
Like a lot of video shooters I suspect, I just want something simple to do the basic editing stuff. I don't have a problem paying for things but in the circumstances I'd rather learn the basics first, by actually editing clips, before deciding if more would be good.
So rather than download a demo I'd rather get a freebie, get some editing done, learn as I go and then decide if something with more features and more complications is the go.
So, will Avidemux do the basics? Does it have any serious gaps in its file handling abilities? I have a DigiLife DDV-1080HD, file formats MOV, JPEG and WAV.
