Video Editing Software Recommendations?  
I've been looking for video editing software for processing camcorder recordings (AVCHD video *.MTS files). In the short term, I'm looking for basic functions like clipping, 90-degree rotations, format conversion, and the like; ideally, it should also support more advanced projects like placing a new soundtrack over video clips.

So far, I've been playing with a trial edition of Corel VideoStudio, which looks like it has all the functionality I'd need (but behind an interface apparently written by programmers who hate the end users). There's a good deal on the full version at the moment, but I'm also looking into free (as in beer and/or as in speech) alternatives.

Any useful advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think my camcorder shipped with a copy of MGI VideoWave III. It was OK software; it got the job done.

I think the program I used for video conversion was "Super".

Just a minor warning. The web page is adverising supported by a commercial program.
