You can use the software you like, but if you need some help in finding one we can recommend these software, they are all free and open source.

Shotcut is the first we recommend, it has official support for all the main operating systems (Linux, Windows and MacOS, it’s updated regularly and it’s the one we chose to write our guide.
You can find more info and the download page on the Shotcut official website.

Kdenlive is also easy to use, free and open source. It’s more powerful than Shotcut, it has many addons and functions and it is much appreciated in particular in the Linux community, but it lacks an official build for MacOS, so we can recommend it only if you are on a Linux or Windows system.
More info on the Kdenlive official website.

OpenShot is as easy to use as Shotcut as well as free and open source and it has official support for Linux, Windows and MacOS. The only concern is that they use Google Analytics for bug and crash tracking. Nothing to worry about, the team is using it as a tool to improve their software, but for someone it may be a concern for privacy reasons.
