What's the best /g/-approved video editing software out there? Preferrably something a person with no past experience could understand.
The other stuff is mostly junk, except for AVID, but that's going way in the opposite direction on the difficulty scale.
For those with Macs, Final Cut Pro X has gotten pretty good as of late and is laid out plainly enough that a full retard can use it.
Premier is excellent. It's not too hard to pick up and affords you a lot of control over just about everything. Also has a great layout that you can change depending on your workflow.
FCPX is shit imo despite being really simple and can get really buggy, plus it doesn't seem to want to support anything other than Apple lossless (Apple prores) in tandem with quicktime but your mileage may vary.
I use Final Cut Pro on my hackintosh. I like it better than Adobe premiere, and it's probably the easiest to pirate software ever. You literally just torrent the application and drag it into your home folder
You must be joking. Get a cracked amtlib.framework file and the whole cs6 creative suite is yours. That includes Audition and After Effects, which FCPX (dumbed down, hollowed-out final cut) can't hold a candle to.
