I'm looking to do a little dabbling in amateur filmmaking during the upcoming school year and need some recommendations for a strong, full featured PC editing program that won't wipe out my bank account. Something beginner friendly, with a pre-existing tutorial and support base would be preferable, since I am a complete novice when it comes to using such software (with the exception of some iMovie projects back in early high school).

Thanks in advance!

You should try out the trial version of Adobe Premiere.

You can also get a monthly "subscription" to it for $30/mo. Less if you commit to a year or use your student discount.

I haven't tried out the subscription version of Premiere, so I don't know if it differs in any way from the boxed product, but I think it would be worth a shot.

Why would anyone except companies purchase legitimate software? I'm just saying.

Premiere... If that is too expensive or you don't want to pirate it then there is also Sony Vegas on PC, otherwise the best simple editor is the older iMovie HD on a mac.
