Open Source Video Importer/Editor?
I run the IT support for an online class in which the primary assignment is for students to upload a series of videos. These students are very computer illiterate, so you can imagine how much time I'm spending with them on the phone walking them through everything from the video import process to uploading to the FTP server.
Anyway, I found FireFTP (thank God), so that totally takes care of that issue. What I really need now is an open source (or freeware) program that runs on Windows XP/Vista AND Apple that can import a video from a camcorder via USB 2.0 or Firewire. I've seen several possibilities doing random google searches, and I can spend the next week testing, but does anyone here have a quick recommendation? I want to get everyone using the same software so I can write a simple tutorial that everyone can use.
Thanks for the help!
