Whatever video software you currently use to make the videos should do it but several DAWs have basic video editing too, Reaper does for sure. If you use a Mac you have iMovie included but not sure about Windows.

Finally taking this recording lark seriously (and recording my Gypsy Jazz CD)........

I've been doing my recent video edits on the iPad using Luma Fusion after a recommendation here (thanks MfG).

Much more streamlined than previous workflow on Sony Vegas on Windows.

Do yourself a favour, wear earplugs at gigs.

At the 'free' level, you are veritably spoilt for choice. 'Hit Film' is one and if you want every bell and whistle imaginable, try DaVinci-Resolve. It too is free and is used for finishing most big-budget movies.

Resolve is very powerful but also very hungry. Shotcut is a lot lighter on the CPU, simpler, but still pretty powerful. But if I'm just playing with the audio side of things I tend to use Reaper.
