Recording and video editing software


Feb 12, 2012
I am trying to get into making Youtube videos, I already have fraps, but i have yet to get a video editing software (I've been going trial to trial) So far I've used Vegas Movie studio HD Platinum 11.0 and Vegas Movie Studio HD 11.0. The "platinum" version works fine, but is about 100$, which I can't really afford, while just the regular version is only 45$ but seems to have a lot of bugs/glitches, so my question is, What editing software do you recommend? Also, is DXtory and better that FRAPS? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
