7. CyberLink PowerDirector

 

For an option that falls in the middle of the price range, CyberLink has one of the most impressive arsenals of tools -- and it's still easy to use.

8. Magix Movie Edit Pro 2013 Plus

The downsides? There's a trimmer that can be confusing, no 4K support and too many licensing prompts, which can be a drag.

Other features include YouTube sharing, DVD and Blu-Ray compatibilities, and an excellent Picture in Picture preview.
The downside? The interface feels a little outdated, and definitely seems like a watered-down version of Sony's Pro software, as opposed to a product developed with the consumer's needs in mind.
