What possible advantages could there be to editing in the .asf container? And on what platform (windows, I presume) and in what editor?

Really, the difference isn't in the container, but in the codec. Working with avi is fine, as long as the codecs in it are the right ones for editing (huffyuv or lagarith). Editing with lossy codecs is what causes issues.

Download the AMVapp available for download in the AMV front page under useful files, install everything then open vdub import your footage by clicking "open video file"

and do this

Remember when saving to avi lagrith losseless codec to render in bits thus i'm showing you how to cut in to little pieces

After you have your desired scene choice selected you go to the "file" tab then go to save as, name your file and select the codec by clicking the "Change" option highlighted below and after that your done.
