Basically, I have a video in .mp4 format that I need to edit. I've never really did any video editing before so I am looking for a basic program that is easy to use that I can cut some stuff out from the video with, and maybe shrink the video down.

Can anyone help me out with some program suggestions?

Yeah.. virtual dub wouldn't work because that is what I tried first.

I'll look into Sony Vegas though.
