Good video editing software?

Guys I need to combine 2 videos perhaps picture in picture style, or overlay the audio track from one onto another video.

Getting ready to post a video from my euro delivery where I shot with 2 Gopros, only one of which has the cool exhaust sound.

Any decent software recommendations which won't brake the bank? Much appreciated...

I had that and it sucked. I had several Windows based video editing software programs and never had much luck.

Finally ended up buying a MacBook Pro. The video editing software is included and works great. Pure heaven over windows.

What about movie maker, I think it used to be included in Windows. Haven't used it in ages so don't know it's current capabilities and if it meets your needs. But I couldn't resist being an apple fan, get a MacBook : and then you're set.

Hit a snag with my laptop but hope to be able to able to fix it soon.

I found a few more recommendations online, I'll be sure to check out as many tools as reasonable. Thank you all very much for your advice.

imovie is so easy to use. i use movie maker now since the imac was garbage for everything else lol.

but no pic in pic that is clean for windows unless you want to start paying for stuff.

now that I think about it - you can use RaceRender for all your track vids.

I've been using TechSmith Camtasia for a while. It's fairly intuitive and powerful but not nearly as complex as Adobe Premiere.

Davinci Resolve is free and better than all the free options above. It is a very powerful editor and color grading suite. (Same company that makes black magic film cameras).

I use Avid Media Composer, but the learning curve is steep for media management. It's a professional tier editing software for TV and film, but it's the best at everything you mentioned.

However, I use iMovie for quick edits like swapping audio, but I'm not sure there is PinP.

It all depends solely on the power of your device and your video editing needs. If you need to be engaged in high-quality linear editing, you need professional software for editings like Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro. On the other hand, it will be much more convenient for you to use Movavi video editor if you work with weaker devices. here can download the free version of Movavi video editor and see the full functionality. It is a convenient program that supports various formats.
