someone told me that blender was good for editing youtube videos, but had a steep learning curve. I've looked for tutorials online, but most of them seem outdated, from a year or two ago. Could anyone possibly help me or explain how to use it? Thanks in advance!
Blender has a VERY steep learning curve when it comes to video editing. You should have some basic knowledge of blender before editing videos. But I have found this good tutorial, it should be easy for beginners, and it's up-to-date.
If blender is too difficult I would recommend Kdenlive.
