Good video editing software?

Hey everyone, was wondering what video editing software you use? I've been using Windows Movie Maker but it is just very limited, anyone have any free suggestions? Cheers

I use Sony Vegas Pro 12.

If you're looking for something free, VirtualDub is fine if you have no need for non-linear editing (i.e. timeline editing, etc). If you do want non-linear video editing though, there's Lightworks, which I've never tried.

If all you need is a tool that can encode Fraps footage (or others) with the option to trim the start and end time of the video, I highly recommend HandBrake.

Thanks! I use nvidia Shadowplay to record ingame footage.
