    Not free but I use an older version of Movie Studio Platinum, it handles most formats. Sony recently sold the company so older versions show up cheap on Amazon or eBay. I think the current version is around 14 but anything above 9 will work for you. There's a demo version you can try b4 you buy but some features are limited and it may watermark your finished videos when you save them.

    I don't think you'll find any free video editors to be any good - no one wants to wirite that much code and then give it away.

    I agree, if it is free it isn’t likely to be worth your time.

    I use LightworksPro and it isn’t cheap. But the interface is excellent and the output is versatile and great quality.

    I use it as well. VERY powerful programme with some great features (in particular a huge amount of tools for working with colour balance and tints).

    If you want something easy to get into and use, WeVideo is cloud based, pretty cheap, and very easy to use.

    I've been sing the various versions of Vegas. Currently on Vegas Pro 15, which is not cheap. However, there is a basic version at around £40
    Video program for beginners – VEGAS Movie Studio
    You would only need the Platinum version if you wanted to burn Blu Rays and DVDs, otherwise you would be fine with the studio version.

    Many people seem to like DaVinci resolve, although personally I lost patience with the interface (probably more a criticism of me than the prog)
    Why don't you download the 30 day trial of Vegas and compare it with Resolve? Good luck!
