If you are willing to go Macintosh their consumer video editing app is called iMovie. It's very easy to use and also very powerful for consumer software. For the PC one of the most popular programs is called Pinnacle Studio. It's available at many stores like Best Buy and Office Depot. Adobe Premiere is even better but pricier.
I totally refuse to go with a Mac. I am strictly Android...lol. I have looked at some of the ones you mentioned and used the demos and I think I am going to get the Pinnacle Studio. That seemed to work best for me. Thanks for your input.
You bet. Pinnacle Studio worked well for me until I added a Mac and a Mac-specific editing program. Best of luck.
