No,  C64's were too limited (8-bit) to do anything video related.

However,  video production was actually possible with the Amiga 1000 as 
you could  get the Amiga 1300 Genlock, and the Amiga itself always 
natively produced  composite video ....real true non-linear editing with 
the computer itself  however was really only done with the Toaster Flyer 
unit (the Video  Toaster itself just produced video effects/titling and 
came bundled with  LightWave 3D).

I used to be a Commodore dealer, and the NewTek (Video  Toaster) 
distributor in Canada, so if you need any info hit me  up!
