Unless you're happy just livestreaming and never touching your footage again, you need a good bit of video editing software if you're making video content. That applies to everyone, from streamer-first creators who just want to clip their highlights and chuck them on YouTube to YouTubers who've built a brand on premium production values.
There's a range of solutions out there - both free and paid, with varying levels of capability and complexity - and we want you to help your fellow creators navigate their options. So what's the best video editor overall? The best for different budgets? The best for technical wizards who learn software by sniffing it, and the best if you need something simple?
Feel free to tackle any or all of the above, but when it comes to the awards and the content, we'll be looking to cover the whole topic, so do fill in the blanks to increase your chances of winning. We also want a clear explanation of what makes each piece of software worthwhile, so do justify your answer with at least 100 words or 60 seconds of video! The best answers across the whole topic will get $5 apiece.
