Any Decent Free Video Editing Software?


Recommended Posts

Does anybody know of any decent free editing software?


The Microsoft Movie Maker is horrible and it takes 45 minutes for it to "prepare" a 2 minute video.


So i'm looking for a decent editing software maybe one that allows for a free trial or something and if it's any good I'll buy it but just looking for a free one at the moment.

This might not be the best place for this question. I'm going to bump you over to Visual Arts. They'll probably have some suggestions for you over there.

Most free video editing software are on par with WMM and they offer very limited options. If you really want a free alternative, Avidemux is a good option.



Although you won't get the same professional look you would with a paid software.

Sony Vegas Pro and Adobe after Effects are great options for Windows users


These are links for 30-days free trials:

Sony Vegas Pro



Adobe After Effects




If you're a Macintosh user, iMovie comes free with every new Mac.

I'm currently using Final Cut Pro. IMO FCP has the most user-friendly interface of all video editors I used.

Sony Vegas Pro also offers a more user-friendly interface than AAE imo, so if you're a beginner I recommend using Vegas Pro.

Thanks I'll check them out, I just need them to basically edit gaming footage so i don't need nothing too fancy.


the WMM was fine and the videos turned out okay except it took an hour to process a 2 minute video before i could even being to edit it and the capture software that came with my capture device has an editing software with it but it's a hugh pain in the neck

I personally use Pinnacle Studio.

Very user friendly.
