I will second Elizabeth's statement: if you have not tried WeVideo
recently, it has come a LONG way in the last 8 months! Big update last
February (right after we used it for a project) and more over the summer
and recently. One of our most-requested features (rotate images & video)
just got added! Very few things MovieMaker and iMovie can do that WeVideo
can't: often people miss the fact that there is are three "levels" of
editing capability.

I think you can only export to Drive (not YouTube) with free version now...
unfortunate but still doable. The biggest challenges we have had is with
sharing and collaboration: it's NOT real-time collaborative editing, and
the process is a little cumbersome.
