I think you need to put a price qualifier in your request. Editing software can be as inexpensive as free and the high end is several thousands of dollars.

My pc came with windows movie maker, and sonic moviemaker bundled in the software. My wife baught me a device DVD Express by ADS, that accepts RCA a/v from my analog (old camcorder,non digital) camcorder, so I can convert them to digital, and then burn dvd's with one of my moviemaker software. hope this helps. I just finished a tribute dvd using old photos with background music/old casset tapes, and comentary, for my sister-in-law about her son that passed away 10 yrs ago. It was really easy, and turned out great.

Nero Vision Express 3, part of Nero 6.6. DVDXMaker was the best until they went belly up. I notice Nero 7 is now out. A little pricey at $80, but a good product.

I use Pinnacle Studio Plus. It's got it's quirks, but it gets the job done. Also includes green screen effects, picture in picture and other effects. I've had a lot of fun with the green screen effect. I've got version 9. Now there's a version 10 out. It's under $100 I pretty sure.

If you have XP, try using Movie Maker. It's free, and you can experiment with it. Nero is a good all around audio/video package. You might find version 6 at a good price since 7 is now out.
