Pinnacle Studio, Sony Vegas, FCP, kits of video editing programs will do this, but you need the computer to do it with. These programs will run on a laptop and work fine until you press render. At that time, depending on the effects and such in your timeline, could turn that laptop into a brick for several hours or maybe days. A good Video Editing Computer is a Desktop with a 2 GB Graphics Card and a Surround Sound Audio Card added on with Sony Vegas, would render that same video in maybe 5 to 20 minutes and use about 30% of the computers processor power.
I have one of those latter desktops and it cost me in excess of 2000 dollars to get it to what it is today. I runs Widows 7 Pro, Sony Vegas 10 and does a ton of Video Editing.
