I liked CineWorks, when I first bought it. But after playing with it for about a day, its limitations (especially when it comes to importing industry standard format material) showed. Plus it is quite buggy and crashes a lot on post-RO3.7 systems. If someone would take up its development, it could be turned into quite a nice application for hobby use. With the currently available software, I can not really recommend RISC OS for video editing.

As for your analogue equipment: If you don't have a professional 3-chip camera (like a Sony BetaSP camcorder), then you should really get a miniDV camera, as even the cheap consumer camcorders will be far better. And a good digitiser PCI card will cost more than a miniDV camcorder. For the camcorder you won't need any specialist hardware in the computer, only a firewire interface (wich most PC mainboards and Macs have as standard).
