    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.
