The software I use is described here (http://www.billiardsdigest.com/ccboard/showthreaded.php?Cat=&amp;Board=ccb&amp;Number=176909&amp;page =0&amp;view=collapsed&amp;sb=5&amp;o=&amp;vc=1). Pinnacle Studio was very easy to learn and use. It is not as full-featured as a professional package like Abobe Premiere, but it is much less expensive and easier to learn.

if you are using windows xp you have windows movie maker for free. It is easy to use and has most of the features you would need. One thing I missed there was the ability to remove the audio track and replace it with another one.

If you would like that and many more freatures and effects there are 3 widespread options.

Pinnacle studio
Adobe premiere
Ulead video studio

I personally use Adobe premiere but I think any one of these would suit you well
