video editing software

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I'm just starting out on Youtube and wondering what are some good options for video editing software.  I'm new to editing and am looking for a simple to use program that is not overly expensive.

I use PowerDirector by Cyberlink.  It's around $80 USD can be purchased on Amazon (download) or direct from the Cyberlink website.  Does all I need it to do.  Of course there are many other options which I'm sure others will share and provide feedback  But I started with PowerDirector and have not had a need to change.

I've made nearly 900 videos with windows movie maker and a few with Shotcut and Hitfilm express. The vast bulk of my videos are made in WMM as I don't tend to do a lot of overlay or complex transitions. It's simple and pretty much point and shoot. When I do feel a need to get "fancy" I'll use Shotcut which is free and open source and very powerful once you learn it. There are a lot of tutorials and a pretty good community.

As I mentioned in the stream the other day I use Adobe Premier Pro Creative Cloud edition which is software rental at $19/mo.  I am sure I use like 1% of the software's features.  With help of @Eustace Pharmer I was able to get the basics down of what i wanted to do and kind of just learned as I needed to/wanted to new features.
