Avidemux is a freeware video editor that packs a very nice editing suite at the right price.
Avidemux is a cross-platform video editing app that is a step up from VirtualDub. I find it has more capabilities and easier to use. I also found very good on-line help:
The opening screen shows the various functions which become active after loading a file into the program:
In addition to the editing functions, there is an extensive filter set available:
You can also effects such as logos and animated menus:
