    What kind of price range are you looking at? Software can get pricey.

    Hmmm... I'm used to using an Apple for editing; but I did use Adobe Premier for a brief stint.

    You should be able to download a free trial of Premier of their website (it's an $8-900 program). Otherwise, Premier Elements it about $100 IIRC.

    There's always eBay too. You can always find older versions of software for a LOT less.

    Adobe Premiere and/or After Effects. I use those everyday.

    If you want to go crazy, check out Autodesk's Combustion.
