  3. davinci resolve, (free version) you will need decent computer, at least i7 8gb ram for resolve, and that is just for basic 1080p 16gb ram minimum if you want to make motion graphics as well.

    Why not try some of the free ones first before you invest, Kdenlive, Openshot, Shotcut, there are others, then upgrade when you feel ready.

    The "free ones" by and large give a second rate user experience. Better to try the "real" NLEs during their free trial period and then see if the free ones are suitable.

    There are too many posts which have headings like "best FREE ..." You should find out what works, and then work on figuring out which ones can fit into your budget. There are lots of paid options which are in the $50 and under category that blow the free programs out of the water.

  7. If you want to pursue a career as a professional editor, you should grab the free Avid First(full working version except limits on ex. number of tracks, export options). If you master this, you're ready to take on professional editing jobs(at least technically).

    If you need to expand a project beyond the limits of First, the Avid project file can be converted to aaf with this: https://github.com/markreidvfx/pyavb/blob/master/examples/avb2aaf.py (project needs to be installed first), however if you're not aiming at a career, but just want to edit some stuff you could, as mentioned try open source softwares out like Blender, or Olive Video Editor(next version of it will be sparkling).
