    I've recently adopted DaVinci Resolve, which is the Blackmagic product that Rob mentioned above. Having used Vegas/Sony/Magix Movie Studio Platinum and Adobe Premiere Elements 15 (which each sell for about $100), I'm really in love with Resolve (which sells for $0).

    It's not simple, and there's definitely a learning curve. But it's solid and stable, makes great use of GPU acceleration for both display AND rendering into H.264, and wraps all of the tools you need into one workflow in a single application. Magix and PE, on the other hand, were unstable, made no use of GPU for rendering (despite Magix advertising that it can...but it can't), and were constant irritations to me for a host of reasons. Resolve has been a breath of fresh air for me as a total amateur video editor.

    Hello, Iím very new to video editing and pretty new to this forum (I lurk but have rarely posted). I did some googling and eventually settled on Lightworks as my editor. Itís totally free and, whilst tricky to get the hang of, incredibly powerful. Surprised not to see it mentioned here so felt compelled to post lol.

    It depends on how "fully functional" you mean. In addition to the ones mentioned in the thread, if you get XSplit Broadcaster (20 USD for 3 months), it comes with a bare-bones video editor that you can use.

    In addition, I just stumbled upon an Android App called "Legend" that you build Texts in and it will store them as video. That is free, if you have an Android Phone of course. There are uses for that kinda thing, and Free is a pretty good deal.

    Have you tried looking in "Sourceforge"? They have many Open Source things that are built by the community -- all free, too.

    Edit: Here is a link to many... Video Editor free download - SourceForge (note: it is just a copy of a link after I searched for "Video Editor" at The text of the link reads like you are going to be downloading something, but you aren't. There are 40 results of "some sort".)
