    advice on video software, please

    I'd quite like to get a video editor with a few more features than the standard Movie Maker I use, especially as teachers have been asked to knock up some videos (example below) to try and support kids from our special needs school that are staying home for the moment, while this situation goes on. What would be really helpful would be features like a split screen or some superimpose feature that would facilitate signing side-by-side. It also has to be pretty simple to use for a technophobe like me. Apparently, iMacs will do it all day easily, but I'm just looking for something I can load into my old HP desktop (Window 7). Or is it too old to support anything decent and I'd need a new computer? Info on options, where to purchase and how much would be really helpful. Thanks in advance.

    I wish I could help more but I didn't get into video making much and in the end for ease, I just use Movie Maker too. A fair while ago I looked at using one called video Pad video editor from NCH software. A freeware prog but upgradable with lots more features. It was a bit more complicated than Movie Maker but not that bad.
    Not sure if it would be what you want but may be worth a look at least.

    The freeware version is listed in small print not far below the top block or the pro version is listed lower down..... https://www.nchsoftware.com/videopad/index.html

    Depends what effects you want. Windows Movie Maker is more than enough for a simple film. It was enough for my college project though I used help of https://www.topwritersreview.com/rev...customwriting/. You could probably sort out a free trial on Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere. And also Lightworks is worth a butchers. The free version is still full-function but limits output to Youtube.
