Hiring an editor can definitely help improve your content output as well as quality, which is especially important for full-time YouTubers because editing can be very time consuming and challenging depending on what you want. And I'm not saying to hire an editor just because I am one ;)

Adobe premiere is like 24€ a month, so for a beginner quite pricey, but have to admit that it is the superior program in many ways. With other programs it's like 62€ a month. I got myself a Magix Vegas Pro 15 on humble bundle at 22€ (It's not Sony vegas no more, german Magix bought it from Sony while back). Normally Vegas pro is like 300€. There are some things you have to disable immediately if you're using Vegas pro or it will crash all the time: disable multi-core rendering for playback, gpu acceleration - OFF, encode mode CPU ONLY. Also got Paint shop pro from Humble bundle at 22€ (normal 70€), so keep you're eye on humble bundle deals ppl.

Free alternatives that are usually recommended for video editing kdenlive, davinci resolve (great for color correction), openshot and shotcut (usually recommended this to ppl and have not heard complaints).

For picture editing you can use gimp 2.0 (used it a lot, not so easy to use but still good), pixlr, paint.net or even like snapseed on android phones

Just felt like giving my 2 cents.

OOOO!!!! I didn't even know about those free options?! To be honest, I'm nothing of a video editor and have always thought Adobe Premiere and Vegas were quite expensive, but wow!! I think at Tokyo Creative we might need some help with our colour correcting so I'll let the media team know about Davinici Resolve. Thanks so much man!!!! That's super super helpful!!!

Well if they are using Adobe etc. they wont need Davinci Resolve since it has the Lumetri/RGB scopes builtin, just have to add/change the view to see it. But for those who are looking to try out or start YouTube, it's a good free software for color correction due to that RGB scope view.

Btw are the contests still on? Still no word on any of them so I was getting worried. specially the video comp.

I think for an amateur (and broke student) like me, Davinci Resolve seems quite easy for me to understand!

The contests are still running and we're thinking about extending the deadline by the end of June! We're just trying to focus on getting out these bits of content and hopefully can get the word out for the competition more!

Vegas Pro 15 Edit and other stuff on humblebundle again. Pro 15 edit is the cheaper version of just pro 15, still a good editor for basic needs.

Other good one is Fastcut: choose videos, choose sections you want and it will automatically make a compilation that fits with the beats of the song for you (similar to gopro quik desktop version, but better.)

My Advice: For editors who are just starting out and on a budget, try Davinci Resolve. It is free to use and has all the things you need. From simple cuts to color-grading in nodes, everything is available. + It is more optimized than Adobe Premiere Pro.
