What are you guys using to edit your MP4 movie?

Once the MP4 file is created and I add my music and other editing stuff to the file my software I'm using to merge all that into the mp4 is taking some of the quality out of the original movie.  I need to see what you guys are using to add music and other effects that you may add to your Lumion mp4 movie.

Thanks

First I used Windows Live Movie Maker, but as you said, it reduces the quality.

Now I use Corel Video Studio Pro. Almost no quality loss, and it's cheap. Just make sure to use max bitrate when exporting.

I always export to image files so if yomething crashes I have the frames saved. After bringing my frames together in After Effects I use it also to include my music there. You can use Audition too for editing the music first. Its pretty nice interoperates with AE too. :)

After-Effects with custom export templates so I have various bitrates handy at all time.
I don't really like the Audio integration into AE right now but it's ok for simple track adding.

I use Windows Live Movie Maker. Just make sure you create your own custom 'Save Movie' setting and increase the bitrate to about 10 or 15 Mbps. Seems to work OK. See 'Apartment Development' movie I posted a few weeks ago.

AVS Video Editor (part of a set of tools) as its lightweight and has heaps of options for different formats and settings and ability to store own settings, other than that Cyberlink PowerDirector.
