Best Windows program similar to i-movie?
Merry Christmas everyone! I just opened up a shiny new VIRB Elite, but I am really not impressed with the VIRB Edit software. Is there something similar to i-movie for Windows? Thank you for your time!
I've used Movie Maker which is a free MS product... But I only really use it to edit videos, add music, etc... Obviously there are better products out there but they probably won't be free...
Adobe Premier Elements 12. Not free, but about as close to i-movie in terms of ease of use and simplicity. Actually has more transitions and themes than i-movie, and I like the royalty free music that auto sizes to the time of the movie track--with that said, I still predominantly use i-movie but I am started to play with Final Cut.
Thanks for the responses guys! I appreciate the help!
Premiere and Premiere elements are great. The "elements" version is much more affordable, but I think there's trial versions of each.
Movie Maker is very basic, but will get the job done if you don't want to be too creative.
Also check on Sony Vegas, I think they have a somewhat affordable version, and also a trial you can download.

Sony still makes an "affordable" version of Vegas, but they dropped the Vegas name on that version a few releases ago and now call it 'Sony Movie Studio'.
If you don't need the very latest edition, the older releases can be found on Amazon for pretty good prices.

The "vegas" name is still around, but only applys to the pro version now.

This one stands out as very advanced and it is free, the learning curve might not make ti the best choice for everyone though. Lightworks
Might be worth a look if you want to do some advanced stuff.
What he said. I've been using Premier Elements 10 for a while now and it's pretty simple, once you get the hang of it - and there are plenty of instructional videos on YT to help with that! - and very capable for your average amateur filmmaker.
