Video editing apps

Recommended Posts

Okay.....I currently use Windows Movie Maker (WMM) to edit my videos.  It works fine, and it's simple + FREE.

However, with getting a new GoPro at Christmas, I would like to use something that will save the video at high quality.  WMM kinda does, but it's old.

What do you use for editing?  I'd like something that has the feel of WMM with a viewing pane and a slider for easy editing.  Easy learning curve - I'm no professional and don't have a desire to be one.  Finally, as low cost as possible.  Again, not a pro video editor.  I only use it for editing my game footage.

Oh yes, I use a PC.

TIA

I’d say Final Cut Pro because that’s what I prefer but if you’re stuck with Windows then I’d go Adobe Premiere.

I 2nd that question is Final Cut Pro better than iMovie? 

I have been filming both ends of games at home games and wondering if it would be possible to have the two sets of raw footages side by side to edit down

It’s absolutely better than iMovie because it’s WAY more powerful. That said, the interface is almost identical to iMovie so it’s not a bad idea to start with that because it’s free and move to FCPX once you hit a point where you need the advanced features (you very well may never need FCPX depending on what you’re trying to do). 

As for two sources at the same time, yes. “Multi cam” is the google term you’re looking for.
