    Hi there, I'm Baylze, and I currently use Movie Maker; which has been fine for me up to this point, but I'm looking for an upgrade.

    I'm not looking to make stopframe animations, incredible intro sequences, or visually stunning designs, I just want a video editor that can;
    • Add text/image overlays on top of my videos
    • Access to engaging transitions and pre-existing animations
    • Renders at 1080p
    • Add sound effects on top of my videos (and on top of the soundtrack)
    • Allows me to narrate directly over gameplay (or import pre-recorded narration)
    My knowledge of video editing software is null. I've read through the list YTTalk has stickied, but need some more direct help!

    So yeah, basic stuff, but not stuff that Movie Maker can offer, right? :p

    Thanks for any advice :)

    I would recommend Sony Vegas. It is capable of doing everything you mentioned and more. It's the only editor I use. :smug:

    If you're looking for something that's really good, but also free, I would recommend Hitfilm 4 Express!

    I heard Sony Vegas (that's the one with a grey color scheme right?) has a pretty complex interface. Do you know of anything that has a little more user-friendly interface? :p

    I don't. But it's honestly not that complex at all. Especially if you only want to do what you stated in your first post. Haha

    Well we use Sony Vegas and adobe premiere....simplicity sake Sony Vegas is alot better. Bigger upfront cost as you can do monthly subscriptions to Adobe. Those are really the only video editing software I have any experience with.

    Sony Vegas seems to be a pretty widely used piece of software.

    As long as the interface is simple, I think I'm down to go into some research!

    Hi Baylze, Movie Studio is pretty good! it has a much easier interface than Sony Vegas. I bought Movie Studio for £40 and it works like a dream, i then invested into getting Sony Vegas to push my editing skills.

    I would recommend Sony Movie Studio Platinum. It is essentially the less expensive version of Vegas but with the vast majority of features that you will need to create YT gaming videos at a fraction of the cost. It's what I use. I believe it is around USD $50 where Vegas is $300+. The UI may look a little complicated at first but it is very quick to pick up.

    Hey guys. Movie Studio seems like a much better option. Which edition of this software do you think is the best? (or the one what you use?)
