Start here: 10 free video editors Keep in mind that free video editors are very simple and do not have many effects. I recommend you to buy inexpensive video editing software, like Sony Movie Studio or Cyberlink PowerDirector. Take a look at this list of consumer video editors

The cheapest tool is to use a desk lamp and light the scene better to begin with and use the white balance setting in the webcam software itself. It's a lot harder after the fact (if sufficient detail is even saved in the video to fix it at all). You could also try DaVinci Resolve Lite, it's a professional color grading and correction package that also ...

Windows Live Movie Maker is a free app that can do both audio and video fades (both in and out). You probably already have this application installed on your computer, and if you need further help I would imagine you can find a number of YouTube tutorial videos. Once you import your video, click on the Edit tab and you'll see the audio fades immediately. ...

Blender, which is free and open-source, can do difference matte keying. I don't know if it's better or worse than After Effects' keyer because I haven't used it before.

A free alternative for After Effects is Jashaka. It runs on every plattform and has some decent features. While it wont have the comfort of after effects for creating such an effect its certainly possible. If you just don't want to spend all that much but still willing to pay a small price you can go for Apple Motion which costs 50$ and is a fairly powerful ...

Quartz Composer is free part of the apple developer kit. this can allow you to create music visualizers. In fact, the music visualizers that are defaulted in itunes are quartz composer files.

Blender's compositor will do exactly what you want, just enter the compositor (on the right of the help button on the menu, change default to compositor) check nodes and backdrop, add your video as input (press shift+A on the the compositing window) you can remove the render node since you are not using 3D, press shift+CTRL+left_mouse_button on the input ...

You can't do much about it. Movie Maker can only export in WMV format - and WMV is created for small video sizes (at the cost of quality). You will need another software package to export in other formats than WMV. Check out Pinnacle products for alternative - they target amateur producers.

There's CamStudio (GNU General Public License): http://camstudio.org/ It has screen and video annotations tools.

Processing can do it, if you're not afraid of Java. There's a demonstration processing sketch that comes included with the application that does a frequency spectrum bar graph. It's relatively easy to save the output of a processing sketch to a video file. And it's free.

Another idea would be to use something like Fraps or some other screen capture or screen casting utility to capture the playback of a visualizer in a music player of your choice. The exact combinations of software to use would likely depend on your choices in music player though. I know Fraps will only work with ones that are DirectX based.

According to the this article, iTunes has a music visualizer. You would still need to get screen recording software (unless you want to point a camera at your monitor!). I'm sure that someone has asked about free screen recording software on this forum somewhere.

Asfbin appears like it might be able to do what you are looking for.

VirtualDub is a very powerful video editor. However, it's not very intuitive to use it and it has a steep learning curve. On the plus side, there's a large internet community that supports it, so lots of online resources are available. For your specific problem I've made a short tutorial below. I've done all steps in Windows XP with two .mov files from a ...

The Youtube Video Editor does the things you list. Here's a screenshot of the editor in action. As you can see you can adjust the color balance and the saturation and, not shown here, it is also possible to combine several clips into one. When you're done editing go to your Video Dashboard, click on the arrow next to Edit on your video and click ...

Without looking into this in too much detail: ffmpeg lists a fade filter which fades in/out video. You might be able to use this in conjunction with the volume change filter to effectively fade in and our the audio/video.

Seems like Cinelerra can. Haven't checked how well it works though, I've been wanting to install it for quite some time but never got around to doing it yet.
