Being fairly new to video editing, I found this software to be easy to use. There are a variety of different tutorials online/Youtube that can help you accomplish what you need. I tested out the Trial version before buying, and checked all the features I felt I needed to produce Let's Plays/game video content. It is by no means a Professional Level video editor, but it also isn't their basic software either, and that should be expected for it's price point.

I was fortunate that when Movie Studio 13 Platinum was released on Steam, I was conveniently in the market for software to accomplish what I needed to do. On top of that, on release it was 25% off, which made the purchase all the more enticing.

Before you disregard this program, take a close look at the features it provides that you will need and whether you'll actually need the professional level. See here for more details: Sony Product comparison[www.sonycreativesoftware.com]

While others have complained that the UI elements are larger and that it is geared towards tablets and other touchscreen devices, this hasn't been an issue for me from my own experience. As I have a dual monitor setup, I can spread my workspace out, so this isn't an issue for me. What matters is if I can be productive with it.

If you need a Professional Level editing software for what you do, you're going to have to pay a Professional Level price. For my needs, I need something that allows me to make cuts, transitions, title cards, outros, etc, and it does everything I need it to do.

Edit: Over the last 2 years of use I have edited and rendered close to 1600 videos for my Youtube gaming Channel, and for my needs, I haven't found a feature I've needed that wasn't available in the software.
