I'm using a couple of video editing software's that I really like. I was wondering what everyone else was using. I am using DaVinci Resolve mostly now. and HitFilm Express. Both are very similar but DaVinci allows me to shoot in raw format and do the color grading after. Both are free. Not sure if you are that into the video editing side or not. What are you using? and why?

Premiere Pro CC, because I pay for the whole lineup anyway due to my profession and hobbies. Also because it's good in general.

I started out using iMovie and am now using Premiere Pro CC. Steep learning curve between the two, but once you get into a good workflow its pretty easy to use.
I have thought about switching to an older version or a different editing software that isnt subscription based.

I went from VSDC to Vegas pro 14 last December. Vegas is so much easier to use, and it was only like $20 IRC

Filmora Wondershare is what I use. I paid for it, and I love it. There are a few things I'd like to change but for the most part its been great. I tried the gopro thing but didn't like it at all...

Do you use that coral x10 to blur moving objects? i wish Filmora would just make this part of their software...
yup, it has object tracking which now I have worked out how to use it more effectively is pretty good. X10 doesn't seem to support 2.7k though so I have to upscale my 2.7k videos to 4k if I need to blur objects.

Filmora Wondershare is my go to editing program. I use Coral X10 (I think that is what it is called) if I need to blur numberplates or speedos though.
I am curious where they put the watermark in the free version. About to test it out though.
I am using HitFilm Express right now but I find that it takes way too long to import sections of video.

That should be a kind of secondary question here - I cut video IN TO my projects instead of cutting out of a whole video. Is that what everyone else does? Seems so slow to me.

I am not sure I quite understand, what do you mean, with cutting in to projects vs cutting out a video. Maybe you can explain the difference?

I never used the free version so can't say, I think it is limited on resolutions available too so less useful for me than the full paid for version.
Am not quite sure what you mean by cutting in rather than cutting out?
I use multiple cameras, I put them on the timeline to sync up the audio, and then split them all when I want to change camera angle. I keep the primary video as that has my audio (I mute all the other cameras) on it and then PIP the second camera angles at full screen as required. Once I have my timeline compiled I then delete all the unused bits of my secondary cameras footage before rendering the edit. Generally from around 1 hour of recording on my primary I will edit it down to around 10 minutes (or at least aim to).

Adobe Premiere CC, Phootoshop CC, After Effects CC and yes iMovie on the go! I use Adobe everything for work so I just go with that but I highly recommend DaVinci Resolve if you only need editing and color grading. I actually have been learning Resolve for grading as it is much more versitle for that than Premiere.

I meant that in most software there is a section where you load the raw (original) video and you can play it from there and cut from there INTO your final output video.
Or you could load the whole video into your timeline and CUT OUT and splice from there what you want to keep.

I see. I do it both ways, depending of the lenght of the source clip, and how much of it, I need in the project. Which ever way it is more convenient. I don't necessarily prefer one way over the other.

True, as long as you need longer bits or several bits, from one file. But when you need something like one 20-30 second clip, from a 10 minute file, then it will be easier to import those seconds, via in-out markers. So it still depends.
