On this page, you find software who must be paid to get the compleet version. Mostly they have a 30 trail version, free download but a watermark in your exported video.
These programs have most of the time very good support from the creator or a forum on the website and they do not give you a Beta version.
That means , less bugs or crashes.
Some programs offer a lifetime license, when you can work really well with a program then you can consider buying it for life.
One of the most know brand who does that is Filmora ( Wondershare)
Here are some paid versions of edit software, starting low costs to more expensive.
Magix Vegas Movie Studio serie
First owned by Sony, Magix bought the big brother Vegas Pro.
Movie Studio is a affordable piece of software and there are three versions for sale.
Vegas Movie Studio costs around 50 dollar
Vegas Movie Studio Platinum costs around 80 dollar
Vegas Movie Studio Suite costs around 140 Dollar.
Movie Studio is straight forward editing and is even for beginners very good to use and understand.
I think Movie Studio is easier to learn then some of the other free ones.
You get alot of transitions and effects, the Platinum and the Suite have more effects in
them like the Warp and also support stabilisation for your clips.

Filmora Video Editor
Filmora Video Editor is becomming on of the best editors for people with no large budget.
Filmora used to be a very basic editor with simple functions, but they still add some options in their software.
It now has functions who you only find in more expensive like pre render and the ability to use proxies.
Proxies are ment to make your workflow go smooth and you get no stutter during play.
Tons of effects
Filmora has Filmstocks, these are paid transitions, audio sounds and effects.
But there are a ton of effects, transitions and sounds available for free in Filmora 9.

Pinnacle Studio is still the most know and popular editor there is.
I started my editing when there was version 9 and there is version 23 already, time flies. Pinnacle is known from their workspace look , easy and simpel but real effective.
From version 17 there has been some changes to that looks but it is still very easy to work with. They added a library function. With a library you can sort out your files before you start editing.
This is a great function, because it really helps when you have alot of footage.
There are three versions you can by, but when your a beginner i recommend the cheapest one. Upgrading is always possible ( when the new version comes out ). There are alots of effects, music, sound effects and transitions and they come with the software ( depends on the version you choose ).
