I second the vote for movie studio, but don't go with 11 spend $10 more and get 12 on amazon with free shipping: http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Movie-Studio-Platinum-Suite/dp/B008MIMIY8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386457752&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+movie+studio
I do professional work with video and the bulk of it is done in sony. Don't worry about vegas (the pro version) you really aren't missing out on much.
The other big advantage with sony software is it is really popular so there are tons and tons of guides on youtube so if you get stuck there is plenty of help.
