Benefits over i-movie
- True multiple editing
- PAL support
- Audio Mixer
- Advanced Titles
- Colour correction
- Keyframe animation
Basic desktop software
These basic software options are pretty straight forward and intuitive to pick up and use and better still the two options below are both free.
After the removal of Windows Movie maker, this gives rise to other free software packages:
- Excellent file format support
- Fully customizable filters
- Clear, well designed interface
- No ready-made export profiles for different devices 
- 4K video support
- Importing/Exporting of 1080p at 60fps
- Very inexpensive
- Media organization
- A good tool for novice and intermediate editors
- Wrapping Timeline was removed
- Although in our basic editing software category, imovie is pretty much on par with the likes of the intermediate software options.
Intermediate/multiple channel editing
If you are looking for something that’s a bit more advanced than drag and drop and allows you to add in additional transitions and multiple video and audio tracks.
Let’s you add additional layers, but may take a bit of time to get your head around it. However, I would recommend this if you are recording separate audio and video so that you can sync them together.
Although these options aren’t free I thought I would include them to give you an example of what the professionals pay.
These bits of software are amazing once you have learnt how to use them. They may require additional tutorials, however, to get to grips with how they work.
