Magix Edit Pro 2017 is a good low end program with lots of features to start off with at a very good price, $65 or so. You can upgrade to their premier package later as well. You can trial it for a month for free as well.

thanks. quite informative. have not done video editing since college days. I remember final cut pro back then too. Wonder what changes occurred since.

James Wirth says:

I appreciate your teaching, Derral! My main thing is to try to sync HD audio from a program like Logic or Reason to video either from my Gopro or just a Toshiba camcorder. Difficult to sync the audio! OK, I tried Windows Movie Maker, not easy, hit or miss. Same with IMovie, very difficult! Don’t waste your time. Ditto with Gopro Studio. I had a friend with Final Cut Pro X, it’s a snap! So easy and accurate! On App store its $299.99. I see it on Amazon $99.99! Is it the real deal? Thanks! and please visit my channel: James Lawrence Wirth
