I'd like to set up a handful of posts (or pages, it really doesn't matter) to be editable by specific people. If I have 10 posts, I want to allow 10 different people to each edit "their" page. They should not be able to do anything else, meaning no editing of other pages, no creation of new pages, no deleting their page. Just a login directing them to the edit form of their page. I can't find any sort of plugin to do this. Do you know of one? In the absence of a plugin, any other ideas on how to accomplish this?

Challenging Video Editing question: If I wanted to take video from a multiple number of different sources (off DVD's or maybe Blue-Ray) and produce a single video from those sources (say each video has its own quarter of the screen), which editing tool(s) would be best to perform these tasks? Software must be PC. By best, I mean: * relatively simple to learn, * open source, or relatively inexpensive * produces good quality, quad-screen videos in high enough resolution to look good on typical home televisions, not just computer screens. *Makes it easy to add your own music tracks or soundtrack, or it can use audio from any of the 4 videos as well, preferably both.
