Kids student license through the school got cancelled for some reason ?
Disappointing because they’ve been doing more and more video work. Considering buying it, this isn’t a question of price, but rather being kids, are there other tools they should learn and use too?
DaVinci Resolve has become a great video editor. While some of the fancy color correction and other tools are only available via the paid version ($295) for most edit tasks the free community version it is great. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/davinciresolve/
The best audio tool I would look at is Audacity, which is also free and open source. https://www.audacityteam.org/
The best software to replace photoshop (and I think is even better) is Gimp. https://www.gimp.org/ It is free and open source.
Each of these can run on windows, mac, and Linux (with Linux being what I would suggest 🙂 )
