the are several softwares can edit 4K footage now:

- Adobe Premiere Pro CC (http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere.html?promoid=KAUCJ)

- Pinnacle Studio 17.5 Ultimate (http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSite/us/Products/studio/ultimate/)

- Sony Vegas 13 Family (http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/vegassoftware)

- Cyberlink Power Director 12 (http://www.cyberlink.com/products/powerdirector-ultra/compare_en_US.html)

- Magix Movie Edit Pro 2014 (http://www.magix.com/us/movie-edit-pro/)

- Corel VideoStudio X7 (http://www.corel.com/corel/category.jsp?rootCat=cat20140&cat=cat3430073)

I think the most complete is Premiere Pro CC (but I am learning about it yet). For now, I have Pinnacle Studio 17 because I edit 3D videos from my Sony HDR-TD10 on it. I tested all softwares above and for me there is some that is easy to use, and some with graphical interface very confuse (Sony Vegas Family).

I suggest that you try all editors with the same footage. Make transtitions, Cut and merge some cenes, apply color corrections and filters, build DVD menus and try to burn a final disk (Bluray or DVD). Repeat these steps for each software that you download in a trial mode.

May be one software is more easy to me, but it can too difficult to you. Other software can be more easy to work with your way, but to my it can be more difficult or complex.

I cannot say to you what software is better, It's a personal choice.

I only can help you (and help me too) to choose a video editing software based a few questions in mind:

1) Is the interface friendly ? Is intuitive ?

2) Is the resources and features easy to find and easy to configurate/handle ?

3) Is the timeline easy to manipulate ?

4) Is the rendering velocity good ? Is slow or fast ?

5) Is the DVD/Bluray menu creation easy ? Is it too simple ? Is it to complex ? Is poor or rich of resources ?

I like Piinnacle Studio 17, Magix Movie Edit Pro and Premiere Pro for now. I have some problems to understand the Sony Vegas Pro interface, and in the future I am dedicate some time to view tutorials on Youtube to learn about it.

Good Luck for you.
