Dead product and no way to get a registration key so it dies quickly.
AIST Movie Explorer
Dead. Can't seem to find it.
Little documentation. Download is currently disabled (I have version 4.0 build 8327, the German site reports there is a 4.5 version) Supposed to be some free transitions but you have to register (broken). How do plug-ins work? Horrible purple color scheme though. Bleech! Wish it could be changed to brushed metal.
(ed. download is available; see the first entry in this topic)
Avid Free DV
Avid will be releasing Free DV sometime in mid-2003 for both PC and Mac. Sign up for an email notification when it is available.
Axogon Composer 0.93.1
This is the "before" version of MainConcept's MainVision program. There's also quite a following among the guys who do all those Lego movies.
CyberLink PowerDirector 1.1
CyberLink PowerProducer 1.0 VE (VCD Only)
For a limited time in April (?) 2003 CyberLink gave these away free on their website. Copies may be floating around the web. They're fairly large (12M and 22M) and required a registration number. The numbers were the same for everyone.
(ed. deleted keys)
Free version won't work on Win2K with >2G available space in the install partition. Author won't update it. WTF?!?! That's about as useless as the free Pro Tools 5.01 that won't run on Win2K.
Digital Origin freeDV
http://www.dvchannel.com/ (free registration)
Dead product. 3 minute limit.
Heroine Warrior Cinelerra
Linux-only unless someone cares to get into the source and make a Windows version (boy, wouldn't THAT be nice, especially if they included full VST, DX, AviSynth, VirtualDub, Premiere, and After Effects plug-in support.)
(Is there a free way to run Linux in a window? That might be a solution.)
pure motion EditStudio
Some of the British magazines have included a complete, older version on their CD. We don't get those here (I'm in North Carolina) and can't find a way to download. Does anyone have a good URL for this?
Windows Movie Maker 2
Appears to only be for Windows XP.
Zwei-Stein Video Editor
I've sent email a number of times but never get a response. Nice program but without source or a plug-in architecture there's no way to integrate it with AviSynth/VirtualDub.
Basically, I'm looking for a free NLE that will (preferably) support the DebugMode PluginPac FrameServer (http://www.debugmode.com/pluginpac/frameserver.php)
The best options right now seem to be Axogon Composer, CyberLink PowerDirector 1.1 (if you can find it) and Zwei-Stein. Avid Free DV looks promising, too.
There's also a "shootout" between some of the leading PC NLE's:
Really wish the authors of Zwei-Stein would release the source...
