The trouble is that the vast majority of youtube videos now feature material edited on software a little bit better than the free stuff. Resolve isn't complicated, it's just rich in features - and most users will scratch the surface with the features they use. BUT, and it's a very important but, they will all be usuing different ones. Exactly the same as DAWs now - what you want to do almost sets the software. While I use Premiere and Photoshop, I really don't like Audition, which for me, is available and I can use it or not use it. I like Sound Forge - it works for me. I don't like Resolve - because I just don't want to put in the effort. If you edit videos a certain way, then you need an editor that fits you. I often have three or four video tracks, and maybe 5 or 6 audio ones - most chopped up into little segments. Premiere makes making space for an insert less easy if you don't want to mess up the sync. Ripple edit sometimes leaves a few orphan clips in the wrong place. There might even me a fix for this I have not yet discovered, but it annoys. I don't know if Resolve does the same things? If your edits build up a clip at a time, then your needs for an editor are different. If you bring in loads of tracks and sync them, and then need to move them about, it gets more tricky. The typical free video editor can edit in and out points in all of them - but it's when you need less common features they fall down. The trouble is also that you don't even know they can't do something till you try to do it. My video needs are different to other people's - so there isn't a one size fits all solution.
