Suggestion for simple video editing software?

Hi all,

I hardly ever shoot video.  However, I just went on a 3 week trip where I shot many video clips with a RX100m1 (AVCHD) and I would like to edit them together into a video of the trip.  I am looking for suggestions for a good, beginner-friendly software to do this.  Free would be nice, but I will pay for the right software.  My only limited video editing experience is with Windows movie maker.

The features I am looking for (I think) are:

- Ease of use

- Combine multiple clips together along with interspersed still pictures

- add music tracks to the video. I would like audio from the video source at times, music only at times, and both source audio and background music at times (with adjustable levels)

- Ability to crop video, if possible

- Ability to level video, if possible

- In-software video stabilization, if possible

- Not sure what else; open to suggestions!
