    I've been using Corel Visual Studio for some time (last three versions), but used Adobe Premier before that... Corel is much simpler, and there are a lot of other programs similar that are pretty simple.

    Is it subscription or one time charge?

    Final cut pro x is easy and good. I would recommend a plug in that lets you load luts and makes the colour grading process more intuitive if you go that way though.

    Search on-line for a guy called Larry Jordan - he does a lot of good stuff with Final Cut Pro X. I have a complete set of his videos which are very useful. The only thing when you're getting started is that he concentrates early on on setting up the Libraries / projects / events - which, while important later on, can be very boring and seemingly unimportant. But when you have worked through the course, you'll understand why he does this.

    You might be lucky enough to be able to torrent the whole course, but I wouldn't know anything about that.

    Top tip - store all of your media in a separate hard drive or you'll fill your computer quickly and when importing to FCPX, select the option to leave files in place or you will also fill the hard drive too! Export using H.264 and the file size won't be huge.

    Depends on the platform and end purpose. Everything I do is non-pro. I use iMovie on a MacBook Air and love it. Simple, cheap and does great stuff.

    I tried Corel a few years back, pretty decent and no "Adobe Tax." I am dropping the few Adobe items I have as the monthly model does not work well for my future lifestyle.

    I have a bunch of apps on both the iPad and iPhone for photos, a number of green screen, text overlay and editing apps like Camera + and Touch Retouch.

    I've not tried video editing on the IOS devices, just not had the time as I tend to run yachtnet type applications on those.

    Corel is a one time purchase.... look for online coupons, often you can save $25% or more...
