    For some reason, I've been using Virtualdub to deal with the simple task of just cutting, editing and pasting video clips but one thing I never figured out how to do is insert silly random sound effects into a video. Does Virtualdub even have a function hidden somewhere or is there a simple solution that I'm overlooking?

    Windows Movie Maker served me well when I needed it.

    Windows movie maker.

    But if you're ready to take a step up then Vegas Movie Studio 9.0 is really nice [​IMG]

    There is no hidden overdub option to my knowledge.

    There is however "sav WAV" in the file menu and then you can use audacity and dub the lot back in using the "WAV audio..." in the audio pulldown menu.

    Personally I use windows movie maker when I want to torture new encoders, the app is useless and horrible in my opinion.

    Kdenlive, if you have Linux/Mac OS X. Again an wonderful Open-Source App that can do many things...

    If you have Windows, then I would say Movie Maker...although I don't realy like it...

    Slightly off topic but how does Kdenlive stack up against avidemux Blue-K?
    video editing is one of the last things holding back a switch to linux for me and now avisynth works well enough with WINE and a few hacks it might be a good time to look again.
