First Time Editing

Recommended Posts

Adobe Premiere Pro is usually the most used option for aspiring filmmakers, you could buy a Production Premium or Master Collection package with huge student discount (at least when they are still in sale. CS5.5 or 6 is best option for you, CC version costs a lot more in the long run if compared to student prices...)

You get also Photoshop and other programs you'll really need soon.

Final Cut X could also be an useful option. I'd not recommend to start with very basic programs made for home video use, it will be more difficult to transfer to the real editing programs later (than starting the learning right away with them)

I believe your school has some editing programs and computers already, I'd suggest you find out what they already have and then decide if you can manage with them or do you really need to buy your own tools at the very beginning.
