I have a ton of music videos without onscreen titles and I want to put titles on them, kinda like the Mtv ones in the bottom left corner saying the song title, group title, what album it's from, and what year it's from. Also, I've got some videos where the audio track is for shit, I'd like to delete the audio track and replace it with another one. I'm getting TMPGEnc 3.0 Xpress, but it seems kinda 'not user friendly' if you know what I mean. What program do I use to do this stuff? I'd prefer freeware or shareware but I'm willing to pay for it as long as it doesn't break the bank.
I found one program that looks like it'll do it and it's also for video editing called VEGAS VIDEO but they want over $400 for it.

You could do it in Adobe Premiere, but like Vegas, it isn't cheap.
But it is easy to use and you could probably synch up the audio channels, since you could show the original and eyeball putting on another one since it shows you the highs and lows visually below the video frames.
I would suggest finding a friend who has one of the high end programs and trading favors for a few hours of time to do what you need.
What you want to do isn't that hard, just time consuming, especially if you have to digitize anything.
Honestly I'm not getting a speed difference from it. And judging from the early returns on forums around the web, neither are most users. Not many features, crashes about as often as Firefox. I would say don't waste your time.
