Video Editor

Me and my friend are planning to record and (online) publish video lectures. We are going to buy a handy cam for this purpose. As we know that after recording, it requires to edit the video like:
1. Removal of some part of video (having mistakes) with splitting it into parts
2. Insert of banners (showing email/facebook/twitter addresses)
3. Insert of video ads (if require)

So, my question is that which video software/editor will perform the above mentioned (and other video editting) functions?

Isn't blender more a 3d graphics creation tool than a video editor?

You may like to check out OpenShot.

I use kdenlive quite a bit. I will occasionally use openshot as well (and in conjunction with kdenlive) because openshot has some built in integration with blender to make simple title animations. But I like the timeline editor in kdenlive better.

kdenlive is part of KDE.
openshot is a gtk (gnome~ish) application.

Both will work on whatever system you are using. I use kdenlive on gtk (xfce) systems. It just installs more libraries.

I would bet that either one would satisfy your needs.

I am currently trying to play with kdenlive. However, its a bit tricky software. GUI is not much friendly
I will also give openshot a shot
