Video Editing Software?

Any suggestions for a user friendly video editing software? I want something for creating vacation videos from pics and videos and music added in. Also, want something for making cool videos for YouTube. I would love a lot of features but not sure if I want something so professional as Adobe Premiere. Thanks!

    MovieMaker or iMovie is good enough to get started with if you don't have a budget.

    Or take a look at DaVinci Resolve. It's impressive.

    If you're willing to spend, then Sony Vegas served me well for a long time before I switched to ScreenFlow (for screen recordings).

    If you're on a PC and want to screen recordings then Camtasia is your best bet.

    I'm sure Kurt will have suggestions too.

      I just downloaded it and I agree.

      I look forward to playing with it.

    You can even do it using PowerPoint if you have all resources already edited. Or.. Magix software that has an options for beginner at reasonable price.

    Or, as Jason so wisely suggested, you can search the forum for the hundreds of previous responses to this same exact question. Do us all a favor, would you???

    Then again, most of us would never have heard of DaVinci Resolve. Looks interesting, though I must say it's the first program of this kind that I've run into that doesn't show sample videos as part of its introductory invitation.

    I've been using Shotcut and VSDC Free Video Editor. I think they have less of a learning curve than Devinci Resolve. If you have an iPad Lumafusion is great, though it is not free. It cost around $20.

    Magix Movie Edit Pro is an absolute bargain and will do all you need. Also check out Wondershare Filmora, again excellent value.

    For a long time I used to use Windows Movie Maker. Then I needed to put a video on another video and I couldn't do it on WMM. So I purchased Camtasia Studio 8. It's quite expensive but it is very good software. I am pretty sure it will do what you ask.

    Camtasia for me.
    Has many great options in one place and not a steep learning curve which make it a great solution for different experience levels.

    I have in the past used Camtasia for how to videos, and I regularly use Vegas Movie Studio for my professional DVDs.

    I've used both of these programs for years now, and have found that they have a ton of great features, with very easy learning curves.

    Hi there,
    I am not sure that you are looking for desktop software or online software. I have been using for an online video editor. It is a paid tool to edit or create the video with amazing effects. Hope that you would like to try it.
