Does what I want in less than 20 minutes to make a youtube video

I am running OSX on a really old iMac. Something after Snow Leopard. I got Moviemator because there was some problem with iMovie, although I have forgetten what.

Although completely unrelated, Moviemator works about as well as the Chrome browser on OSX, that is to say a few minor delays but it does not crash. It is good enough I wonder what the $ version is like.

I have not used the feature but I like the way you can do audio only on it and export as mp3.

Looked Soooo Good…but Nope

Not user friendly at all…I tried putting some text into video for just a quick 3 seconds.
As far as I can tell it is NOT possible!
It applied the text to the ENTIRE video!!
There is nothing in the timeline that shows where the text starts or stops.
Couldn’t figure out how to split video into segments.
Pretty much useless.
The really sad part is this one looked to be the best free video editor…all the rest are even worse.

Always closes

This is the first time I’ve ever used this app, and every time I try editing anything, the app closes. Please fix this.
