Just throwing this out their for you all but if you want a good reasonable editor Adobe Premiere Elements works really well and can do a 2 pass render which is great to make videos that extra bit sharp.
Sure, but maybe they just don't realize that there is a better alternative. Same applies to people who use Photoshop Elements when there's the Affinity Photo for about the same price. The only point of using Elements is the simplicity IMO which can be good only at the beginning if we speak about long term youtubing...UncleL - Yep I made a similar point in my thread about editing software.
However it horses for courses and if someone likes elements then far be it for me to tell them they are wrong.
If it works for them, then it's the right product for them!
