Yep, I still use that on occasion. I especially like it for spitting out all the
individual frames from a real-life video, to use as image_maps in a POV-Ray
animation, for whatever purpose.
For video editing and assembly, I've had very good results with AVIDEMUX (for
Windows). It's relatively easy to use, too. But like most free video
editors/assemblers out there, it has its own strange little quirks. I've managed
to work around most of them. When I can't, I load the video in VirtualDub first,
then re-save it with NO compression as a giant-sized .avi file, then import it
into Avidemux for final work (and transcoding to an .mp4 file.) Doing the final
editing this way is a breeze, because VirtualDub outputs its video as all
keyframes (by default, it seems.) So frame-by-frame edits are painless.
Avidemux is great for putting together POV-Ray animations too.
