Currently I’m pretty good about importing video from my new Sony into the software they provided, but I also have boxes of VHS and Hi-8 tapes just waiting for some attention. “Cumbersome, problem-riddled task” is EXACTLY how I’ve seen video editing. :) I’ll check into these free tools. Luckily open source software is the one exception to my grandfather’s saying, “You might not always get what you pay for, but you’ll sure as hell pay for what you get!”
