Hi Folks,

Any recommendations for a simple, cheap, video-editing program. I will be using an iPAD to make the video. iPAD has iMOVIE, but only seems to be able to trim ends of the video. My Mac also uses this, but it's (I'm?) so clumsy and non-intuitive that I can't get it to perform my simple tasks. I would like to:

trim ends

sync sound with outside recording

move some segments to another file

Your suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

on I movie you can do such things and many more... if you look for tutorials on youtube I'm sure you can work it out...

If you're serious about editing, use the Mac and iMovie (which is free).

Or try the demo version of Final Cut Pro.

Many, MANY tutorials on YouTube for both apps...

iMovie can definitely do all that. You can have multiple audio tracks, cut and slice audio and video in many different ways. Final Cut Pro is a very high-powered tool, and it has a steep learning curve.

I use final cut, to do my videos and it is top! but I movie is somehow the little brother... you can do a lot of things..

I'll try it iMovie again.
Thanks for your thoughts.

For Mac, Final Cut Pro is my favorite, and probably the best. iMovie is a stripped down free version of that, that actually has a lot of functionality. For your iPad, Luma Fusion is really the only decent option. The iPad iMovie is really limited.

Although I have FCPx (Final Cut Pro x), I use Adobe Premiere Elements for over 90% of the video editing I do (4–10 songs per week for online worship services). It's easy and saves time. Also cross-platform Mac/Windows.

Premiere and Photoshop Elements 2021 are $99 if bundled together ($69 each separately). $79 if you ask for the Education discount. To qualify, you enter your email address and qualification. I type in Private Instructor and that is accepted. Been using it for years. There's no upgrade path but @ $79, I'm not complaining (much) and purchase every 3 years or so. Just bought my copy of 2021 just last week and was running 2018 till then.

For Mac users, there's a way to get FCPx @ $100 off bundled with Compressor and Motion (video), Logic Pro x and Main Stage (audio).
