For awhile ive been planning on making a small you tube series but ive never actually taken it into consideration because ive never been sure of the best video editing software to learn or recording software. All ive used in my past is fraps which ive been told is actually the best screen recorder, here are the ones ive heard of and seen that are good but not sure on what to decide: Screen/Gaming Recorders: 1. Fraps 2. Dxtory 3. Shadow Player (NVIDIA) Video Editing Software: 1. Adobe Premier 2. Camtasia 3. Sony Vegas Pro I have already purchased fraps but why are video editing software's so bloody expensive..
