There are a lot of video editing programs out there in the world and not all are created equal. If you want to edit video without hitting that wall that sometimes arises with certain programs, then you need to check out Adobe Premiere Pro.
In the EVSC, all the high school business labs (and a few other labs) have the Adobe Creative Cloud software loaded on the computers. If you’re not an EVSC high school teacher/student, then you can download and install the trial version of Adobe Premiere Pro to see if this program can work for you.
