I am trying to find a program (preferably freeware or shareware) that will allow me to do simple work with mpeg movie/video files. I would like to join a few together, eliminate some frames, fade-in and fade-out. I really don't need anything more complex than that. The freeware joiners I've tried (Camel's MPEG Join, CombiMovie) are hit 'n miss, and among other problems they don't properly display the "new" combined total time in the joined file. As to freeware editors I'm not familiar with any although I'm sure there's some out there. Microsoft's MovieMaker is exactly what I'm looking for, but in typical Microsoft fashion while it will open mpegs (and other movie/video formats) it will only save in the Microsoft .wmv format. At lease those guys are consistent.... that is, consistently a pain in the ass. Anyway, does anyone know of a good joiner or simple editor that will open mpegs and save as mpegs. Thanks.
