    Windows Movie Maker is free and simple.

    I use Imovie on Mac, and now FinalCutPro.

    Two really good software, very complete and efficient. But need a little practice.
    They also have sony vegas but i didn't like how it works.

    The Gopro app is fine too, but specific to sport camera and a little bit too much simple to my use.
    English isn't my mother tongue so pliz correct me if i'm wrong, thx !

    I'm experienced with Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer & Final Cut Pro on a professional level. I've used many others non professionally. Currently I use FCPX as my NLE (Non Linear Editor) of choice.

    A good edit can be done on pretty much any NLE. But if you want something fully professionally featured, either now or at a later date, that is free but will require a bit of a learning curve I can recommend Black Magic Davinci Resolve Lite https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/uk/...davinciresolve Another option being Lightworks https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...oad&Itemid=206

    Both used to be massively expensive pieces of software that are still used in the Hollywood film industry, but now free versions are available and there are a good number of free video tutorials online for both.

    I am no expert but I think all of the software/apps out there with reasonable feedback will be up to the job - my lil niece did some really professional looking vids with a free iPhone app. Try a few see which you are comfortable with, I use iMovie sure the Windows software is just fine.

    Movie Maker is fine for basic stuff, Sony Vegas won't break the bank and has a lot more features.

    Like Jacob I have never been a fan of Sony Vegas and it has never been taken seriously in the professional world. But it does have a massive fan base among a good number of serious amateurs. Part of the reason is it's starting price, which then takes you in, and I've seen some great edits done on it.

    It is a good idea to try lots of different free, or free trial, NLE's and find what you like to work with. It is an even better idea to search for online tutorials for any you find first, many of which are free, before even trying one. That way you can take a look at how it works and see what you think before waisting time. Also, you will find out if there is an abundance, or next to nothing, available in the way of learning material for future advancements on what you are using.
