Video Editors: What do you use?

I'm trying to get into video a bit more. See if i can't create somewhat compelling footage... I've order more mics for my car and have two gopros.
What does Oppo use to edit video?

Premiere Pro. Expensive but the best. I make sure that every company that I work for provides me with a full blown Adobe license. None of them mind that I use it on the occasional person project as long as I mostly use it for work. Being a hands-on-marketer has it's benefits (like saving the company 10s of thousands per year).

Premier does have a certain appeal since it is the industry standard, but I'm personally in favor of Final Cut Pro. It's significantly cheaper ($299 for 6 years rather than $239 per year) and incredibly simple, think of it as one step up from iMovie. But you can do all the same things.
Though I may be biased, I've been using Final Cut since I was like 10 (I mooched off my dad's work computer, which I also ended up killing by editing so much).

I'm interested in this but in the context of "I've only* ever used the old windows movie maker and the software that comes with a gopro" and that I don't know that I'd be any good or stick with it long term. More of "what's decent for cheap/free to learn and experiment with" which I get the feeling is also more along the lines of COFL's question
*also messed around in AfterEffects for about half an hour once on someone else's computer

@rusty-vandura seconded. It's easy to learn and capable enough to get a lot done.

Full Disclosure - My usage is extremely basic
I use Avidemux for my dashcam clips because it's easy as heck and I can FF through them all very fast while still being able to see what I'm doing.
I also use Lightworks sometimes, but I've barely scratched the surface. Seems like a program that would be great if you were good at it, but it can be really finicky if you're new.
And on mobile... I like inShot. Easy and the most fully functional editor I've found (that doesn't cost money).

@rallydarkstrike The time you save on learning the basic functions and the money you save by it being free makes it a good candidate for just starting out in video editing. Took me like an hour of fiddling to get okay enough with it to feel comfortable starting to make something.

I used Vegas for when I did gameplay. It was alright.

Final Cut Pro here too, bought it once years ago and it’s been steadily and massively improved for free ever since.
Not saying it’s right for everyone but it works great for me. iMovie is a useless toy I tried for 5 minutes once before moving on.
Glad to hear there are more free/cheap options nowadays.
