The test I do is mostlee demo ver of MPEG Editor or I take clips to a frined that own a Video Store. One major problem I have found is some of the MPEG Editors out there re-render the entire movie and you get some quality loss, or will not read MPEG1 or 2 files half of time. I have found Womble's Mpeg2VCR, PEGASYS TMPGEnc MPEG Editor and VideoReDo MPEG Editor to be the best editor, it doesn't re-render the whole movie like all the other MPEG editors do as long you not try resize the clip it self. Some of MPEG Editor here have a problem with Ligos Plug-in.
