    Looking to do some more video editing and my vegas trial has ran out and dont really trust keygens... Sounds to much like key LOG :)

    Any alternatives people could suggest?

    Il have a look into the benefits of the PRO version over the normal, definetley think I could just use the standard version.

    Light works looks pretty good may give it a try tonight.

    It's quite basic, but Videopad Video Editor is okay for basic editing tasks (had to use it at college to edit down a 30+ minute clip to half a minute). An added bonus is that you can export it in a range of formats (iPod, MPEG 4, AVI and Stereoscopic 3D just to name a few)

    If your worried about dodgy files jut run them in a safe environment like sandboxie. Anything it drops into the safe area can be seen and cleared at the click of a button removing any virus's or nasty stuff that decides to plant itself.

    Lightworks was used in the production of Pulp Fiction, The King's Speech, Mission Impossible and a few other big movies.
    It used to be an expensive, paid-for app competing with the likes of Vegas and Final Cut Pro, but they've decided to open-source it and foster a large user-community around it with the hopes of benefiting their professional users through community-driven improvements.

    The source code isn't released yet (due later this year, I think) but I would consider Lightworks to be reasonably safe. :p
    I'm teaching a University module on Multimedia this semester that focused on Final Cut Pro in the past but I'm considering using Lightworks as well to give some variety.
