I know it is at least criminally insane to use a whole 3D animation suite just for basic video editing, but, if everything else fails miserably, here are some notes and a screencast explaining the basics of using Blender for video editing. Well, not exactly what a n00b and hobbyist like me had in mind, but, hey… I gave it a quick shot and it seems to work. Any other resources on this topic are extremely welcome!
