Video Sequence Editor

"In addition to modelling and animation, Blender has a fully functional Video Sequence Editor as well as an advanced node-based editor that also manipulates a video stream." (Quoted from wiki)

This means a video editing software, which allows your to cut films from your animations, or cut your blender animations into other film material. (!)

Read the old documentation wiki page(interim) for a written introduction to the Video Sequence Editor.

Overlay of Two Video Clips, Title Slide (Gimp), Audio

See Jonathan Williamson's tut "Video Sequence Editor - Title Slide and Callout Video " on blendercookie

"In this tutorial, I import a video clip into the Video Sequence Editor as a “base” clip. Then I import a second video, which I show how to overlay onto the first one by using a “Transform” strip effect, resizing and positioning with the controls in the Properties Panel. Next I go into Gimp and create a title slide png, and import that back into Blender, and superimpose it on top of the first two video clips. Finally I bring in an audio clip, and export out to mpg." (Jonathan Williamson's description on blendercookie)
