Here’s the software I currently use for my videos:

Open Broadcaster Software:
Great free software for streaming, a lot better than several alternatives. Has many features including multiple scenes and game capture. Also works really well for recording instead of streaming.

Adobe Premiere:
Switched to this from Sony Vegas, it’s much more powerful and works a lot better. Very easy to edit in and has more features than Vegas.

DaVinci Resolve:
Been trying this out lately to replace Adobe Premiere, as it seems to work more reliably and is easier to edit in. Haven’t messed with it too much, but it seems really powerful. Unfortunately it hates using files on network storage, so I’ll probably stick to Adobe Premiere.

Adobe Audition:
I use this to apply a hard limiter to my microphone in real-time, which prevents clipping and greatly improves the quality of the audio. It’s a very powerful piece of software, with quite a few effects that I’m not even sure how to use properly.

Adobe Photoshop:
I use this to make video thumbnails, graphics, and various other images. It can do quite a lot and I’ve barely scratched the surface of it.

Audacity:
Great for recording the playthrough commentary and anything else audio-related. Also good for editing audio, it has several useful effects, including noise removal and reverb.
