    most video editing software is free.

    if you want the "easy-to-use" stuff, you have to pay for that.

    the perks of learning is that you can use the free stuff.

       Hi. Because You're not looking into all the options of editing software.

       Many well-reviewed software packages don't require paying at all.

    There are usually alternatives, if it's Photoshop you want, look up Photoshop Elements, that's their pay once software now.

    The software used to be fully contained on a hard drive storage of the users computer. They figured out there was pirating and a better way for them to charge small amounts monthly with software on their servers.

    There is still freeware and self-contained single license software by some companies. If it's video editing, your own pc needs to do all of the processing, and weak computers run slow.
