This knowlegeable community surely is able to give advice on the
following semi-off-topic question:
Is there an Audacity-like software for video capture, manipulation and
output/export to various formats? Preferably freeware, of course, but
shareware is ok too.
Specifically, I have a DVD instruction movie showing lots of aikido
techniques (paid for; not pirated). Now, I want to make clips from that
VOB movie of each individual technique and convert them into a suitable
format for my mobile phone (Nokia E65) and/or MP3/video player
(AudioSteno AU822). So I will be able to "practice" each technique by
replaying it over and over again at any idle time even out of the dojo.
Also, there are some similar videos around on the Internet, e.g. on
YouTube and individual home pages.
I have searched the web for programs, but somehow I don't find the right
one. The closest call is the AMV Convert Tool 4.00, but it only produces
"Error" for me, and the support does not reply (maybe summer vacations).
I had hoped it would make clips that I could import into Windows Movie
Maker for further processing and then exporting to the required format
(whatever that is... MPEG4? Nokia uses RealPlayer).
If only I could get it into Windows Movie Maker, I would probably be
able to manage the rest.
Sorry for bothering you, but any help would be highly appreciated!
PS: I'm using Windows XP and Mac OSX 1.3

http://www.doom9.org/ has lots of information about video editing, format
conversion, etc. Look in the "Guides".
