For basic editing there is Virtualdub. For effects, I'd go with ZS4 or Jahshaka (the latter is my preference).

blender is able to load, edit (as in cut and blend different streams, and mix with sound) videos. see here:

  operators and mixers including Chroma Key, Blur, RGB Curves, Z Combine,

  happens on this part
