DaVinci Resolve is arguably the most advanced video editor on the list. While it has many professional video features, its interfaces remain intuitive. Alongside video slicing and trimming you can master audio and correct color. You can also use it to add 2D and 3D titles to your video. If you just want to trim and upload your videos, the rich feature set of DaVinci Resolve may be too extensive. However, if your video project is a little more advanced, the free version of this software is hard to beat.

Though Mac users don't have the sheer number of software choices available for PCs, Apple fans interested in editing video are well served, by four products in particular. At the entry level, the surprisingly capable and enjoyable-to-use iMovie comes free with every Mac sold since at least 2011. iMovie only offers two video tracks, but does good job with chroma-keying, and its Trailers feature makes it easy to produce slick, Hollywood-style productions.
Increasingly, new capabilities trickle down from professional-level software to the consumer category. That includes things like multitrack editing, motion tracking, and advanced color grading. This trend is a boon to nonprofessional movie editors, since the more consumer-oriented software tends to simplify procedures that can be complex in the pro-level software. It also means you'll have more familiarity, should you move up to a professional application.
