    I have had 30 Super 8 film reels tranferred to a DVD; but there was no editing done. I want to delete certain footage and also ad titles and chapters, but I can't figure how to use the software. Windows Movie Maker is a default program on my PC.

    To do any editing, at the minimum you'll have to browse the DVDs and find the .vob files. Those are the video files and you need to copy them to your hard drive for easy editing access. In order to see and import the video files into Windows movie maker, you'll need to change the extension from .vob to .mpg.
    Then it should just be a matter of editing out the footage you don't want and rendering it as a new file you can make a DVD with again or whatever.

    I like VideoSpin 2.0 from Pinnacle, it free and as it imports, it analyzes the video and automatically breaks it up into scenes quite accurately, which makes it much easier to edit. Its a free program but if you use the MPEG codecs for more than 15 days they require $15. You could get around that by converting the video to AVI and importing and exporting that but it would add that much processing.

    Titles and Chapters would be the job of whatever DVD making program you use on the resulting video. The free ones will be quite simplistic. For complete all-in-one packages that may be able to import directly from the DVD, edit and add chapters and burn a DVD, look and see if you can get trial versions of Vegas or Pinnacle Studio or Premiere Elements or Cyberlink PowerDirector.
