    • It's VERY COMPLICATED, they changed the interface and added a whole lot of jargon. So maybe it's a good program, but someone like me who's made hundreds of Windows Movie Maker videos over the years and wants that same 'look', will not want to use Lightworks, priced or no.

    • The free version contains everything you need for editing movies. Sure, the free version can't edit 4K and only has "limited" (I have never found these limits) functionality but if all you need is cutting video from your holiday it is perfect. Also, the learning curve is not that steep. TheagurgMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
