Free software is often worth every penny 😉 I would recommend spending a bit for something with an upgrade path, industry support and professional capabilities. Vegas, and Premiere Elements comes to mind. The biggest advantage is that you’ll be able to ‘graduate’ to the full professional versions should you want to, and get access to robust user forums.
You should be warned that a robust computer (lots of RAM, lots of disk space and a fast CPU) will make your life much easier.
All software will have a learning curve, but if you stick to the ‘big brands’ you shouldn’t have to go through the pain when you upgrade.
