WMM great? Funny one
You should have posted this thread in media and arts, but I will answer your question anyway. If you have a mac use final cut pro, for P.C either sony vegas or adobe premiere cs4. The editor makes a good edit not the program.
if you thought wmm was bad wait untill you see what they did with it for windows 7, it will make older versions of wmm look like fcp, besides that i love fcp ive been using that for a while i recently started using vegas 7 and it sucks not that intutive has taken me hours to get the basic hang of it, i would love to get cs4 but cant find any torrents and key gens thatswork for it,
but dude it your looking for super basic,
other than that id say cs4 for pc and fcp or pce (cheeper) for the mac
