Davinci Resolve, its free and its very very powerful, you can color grade way more in depth than you can with premier pro which is the golden standard.

I use CyberLink and find it super easy to use. They also have a suite you can purchase that will cover everything you need for editing both photos and videos

I completely agree. The best video editing package depends upon how powerful your computer is, how much you are prepared to spend, and most importantly, how much time you are prepared to invest in learning how the editor works. While my choice is Resolve, I have the paid for version, a very powerful computer and the benefit of learning many editing packages over the years, beginning with the very first computer editor.

I understand that there is no "best". I was just looking for opinions. I think this is helpful for anyone who reads this thread. I am a newb and looking for something cheap and simple to start. Thanks for all your input and I hope this thread continues for a while. Like I said I think it is a valuable topic.
Fly safe everyone.

Ii used to use Windows Movie Maker. It was very easy and had many features. But, they stopped making it. You can't get it for download anymore. If you do it's a bogus version. Can't risk it on my work computer.

Got a link?

I tried finding the Microsoft version online and was never able to track it down. As far as I know, all of the versions posted online are not the official Microsoft application (as @1Eagle explained above).

Worth giving it a try - not the best but the fact it's free makes it a good option.

Note there are basically TWO versions of Windows Movie Maker ...

The simple version which I use ... Windows  Live Movie Maker ...

and ...

the more advanced time line / framed version ...  Windows Movie Maker 2.6 (search for this one as its basically free !!) and later updated versions which are no longer officially free.

If you search online program resources such as Softonic etc. - you can download NCH Suite in parts .. free and very powerful - you just select the programs you want and confirm you are a non commercial user. It has very similar style to all the framed based editors and like them - takes a little effort to learn.

You can of course also download highlight based editors from many sources ... DJI ... Soloshot ... GoPro etc.  These basically analyse your video and auto create a highlighted version but still with editable properties.

It all depends on whether you want simple or willing to learn to extract more effects ..

Wow, thanks for all the great suggestions. As I am just getting started with video editing I will keep it simple to start with. Also this is for the company I work for and IT is a real B_tch. I can't just download stuff on my computer. Don't have admin privileges. ARRRRRRR

I've used Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Creator, and Sony Vegas, and each one has its features.

I find that I use Adobe the most, simply because it's what I trained on, and it does everything I need it to do (for better or for worse). It's expensive, there's a ton of resources online to learn features...I simply have to go to Youtube if I have trouble figuring out something.

Avid is amazing, especially if you have a ton of footage. It really makes organization easier, but it's a lot different from Adobe, at least in my opinion. I still haven't learned it as well as I should, and since I video edit as part of my day job, I usually don't have the time necessary to play around with a new system with looming deadlines.

Vegas is great, nice and simple and pretty affordable.

I really don't think there is a "best" per se...I think it's more about how much money you want to spend, how much effort you want to put in. If you are just wanting to edit video, all of them will do the job. So will DaVinci, and that's free...but just keep in mind, no software product is going to be perfect. Before you spend any money though, make sure you take advantage of free trials...and if you are in school, take advantage of education pricing. I work at a university and was able to get Avid and Adobe significantly cheaper.
