    As a long time STILL photographer – I can talk f/stops all day, shutter speed, exposure, fast lenses, high iso, etc . . . . .  I know my way around a STILL camera.

    I've generally avoided video – just never really had an interest in it.  Until I started messing with air rifles.    I just picked up a sideshot bracket with gopro mount and a firefly cam and am – frankly – kinda lost.  ( lol )

    My go to s/w tools – lightoom and photoshop – I *thought* lightroom could do video.  Turns out it doesn't.  {sigh}

    So — the question up there in the subject ↑

    Premiere Pro. Never used anything else and it almost never disappointed me.

    Thanks @antoni.  I just fired up my adobe creative cloud thing – apparently 'Premier Rush' is available to me as part of my subscription ( photographers package @$10.00 a month ).  I'm downloading it to check it out – I don't need fancy – just something to get me started.  *If* it turns out that I get jazzed by video stuff (lol) – then maybe I'll ante up some bucks for the full on Pro.  Appreciate the tip!

    @impactx – thanks.  I'll check that one out.  And yes – free is good.  😉

    The adobe "rush" thing is basically a friggin' bait & switch.  Grrrrrrr.  Uninstalled.

    Never used premiere rush, but I really like Premire Pro. It takes some time to learn (a lot of time), but once you get it editing is a breeze.

    LumaFusion is surprisingly good if you have a current model iPad.  I'm mainly a PC user and while I DO have access to both Premiere Pro and Rush through CC, I find myself liking Premiere Elements best for the simple projects I work on.  I think this is a functional demo still:

    Yeah — holy crap — they all do!  ( " . . . does far more than I'm capable of understanding." )  I can sooooooo relate to that!!  Holy crap – ALL I want to do is flip the damned video so that it's not backwards.

    I've found a stupid simple way of doing this now – so stupid that even *I* can do it.  ( lol!! )

    AND — because it's cross platform – you can use it (VLC Media Player) on windows, mac, linux.  So there's a plus.

    The info at the link above is "good enough" for my very simple needs at the present.

    I use two tools mainly to do all of my video editing.

    The first is DAVINCI RESOLVE 16

    DaVinci generally markets itself to high-end production professionals, which means they can afford to pack a lot of features into a free software. So when you download the free version of DaVinci Resolve, you are not downloading a trial; there is no expiration date or watermark on your export! You will have the tools to start creating professional-grade projects at your fingertips from the get-go. This includes not only editing software but also world-class color grading tools, a compositing program (DaVinci Fusion), and an audio editing program (DaVinci Fairlight).

    The second which is my workhorse is Vegas Pro 17 Edit

    You can get this editing software for a very very good price when the Humble Bundle deals come along. I have shared links to this deal in the pas like in #244384.
    VEGAS Pro 17 is here to make your video production more efficient than ever before. Explore multiple nested timelines, industry-leading HDR editing tools, and an easy-to-use, yet powerful color grading workflow. In combination with over 30 new features, VEGAS Pro 17 provides comprehensive workflow improvements that will supercharge your video production.

    I’ve been using VideoLeap. Free and works great for editing on your iPhone or iPad.
