Okay, I know that this is not strictly a video editor, however, I still wanted to include this on the list for people who are mainly looking to create graphics and visual effects for videos. In fact, learning Motion Graphics and Visual Effects has become a required skill set for any video editor. If you call yourself a video editor, you need to learn at least the basics of motion graphics, and there is no software better than Adobe After Effects which can help you do that. Whether you use Final Cut or Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects is the go-to tool for editors who want to add motion graphics and visual effects to their videos. Whether you are a beginner or a Pro video editor, if you want to get into things like motion graphics, visual effects, animations, and special effects, this is the place to start.
If you are a budding YouTuber and you need a software which is not only free but also doesn’t cut down on features, look no further than Shotcut. Shotcut is an open source and free video editor which provides you with all the editing tool you will ever need. Since the editor is open source and completely free, if you are just starting out, it’s a great place to learn the basics of video editing without investing any money. Most of the video editors follow the same editing basics, hence once you are ready to move to a professional grade editing software like Premiere Pro or Final Cut, the switch won’t be that hard. The best part about using Shotcut is that despite being free it doesn’t cut down on too many features. The editor supports a wide variety of video and audio formats with a good selection of effects and color correction tools. Also, Shotcut is available for Mac, Windows, and Linux, so no matter which OS you are running, you can install and use Shotcut on your device.
Sony Vegas Pro has always been one of the best video editing software in the market. I love Sony Vegas Pro because of its built-in audio editing features. While other editing software like Final Cut and Premiere Pro provide some control over audio editing, Vegas Pro brings a full-fledged audio editor. It allows you to edit high-res multi-track audio to match with your video quality. The Vegas Pro 15 is bringing numerous new features including support for high-end graphics cards, a totally flexible workflow environment, powerful new tools and other minor improvements to make your editing journey as smooth as possible. The software comes in 3 different versions with each of them asking for a one-time payment. There’s no subscription-based pricing here.
As a beginner users, it is difficult to use as it is designe for pros. It is totally free to use and distribute. The interface is customizable and flexible color settings. On the other hand, if you a semi-pros or want to improve your video edting to a higher level, this free video editor is best for you. The thing is you need to spend many time and energy to learn it. You can have a try to see if you like it or not.
DaVinci Resolve is arguably the most advanced video editor on the list. While it has many professional video features, its interfaces remain intuitive. Alongside video slicing and trimming you can master audio and correct color. You can also use it to add 2D and 3D titles to your video. If you just want to trim and upload your videos, the rich feature set of DaVinci Resolve may be too extensive. However, if your video project is a little more advanced, the free version of this software is hard to beat.
Back when my kids were applying for college and we were putting golf videos together to send to coaches, a friend who was into videos editing had a program that made it look easy. It showed and played the video at the top of the screen and he would just section off the area we wanted, then would drag it down to the newly created video we were making. I have been looking for something that would allow me the ability to do that but what I have been trying to work with is what is on my computer now which is “Movie Maker”. I have limited tech skills and I seem to forget how to do this every time I sit down.,
I currently own a new MacBookAir which brings IMovie, I have played around with it and edited a video but have had issues following along and remembering(most importantly) all the steps needed to edit the video. Maybe it’s genuinely simple, but all the videos and instructions I have read don’t make it seem as simple. I am just looking for a program that will help me to better my videos in every way.
In case that you don't want to upgrade to Windows 10, you can still find installation packages of Windows Movie Maker on some third-party authoritative download sites. (Windows Movie Maker has been discontinued by Microsoft, remember to download it on your trust download sites. ) However, you must know it won't upgrade anymore, so you are not able to enjoy some innovative and high video editing technology.
We all love Instagram. But, as an ecommerce store owner you know the importance of making your brand look professional. Take your Instagram stories to the next level with these video editing apps. By the way, all the mobile video editing apps listed above also work great for Instagram, too. These video editing apps, however, have been designed specifically with the Instagram platform in mind.
If you can’t afford to pay for the Sony Vegas Pro 15, you should look at the Cyberlink Power Director 16 which provides you with a great editing environment at almost 3rd of a price. Despite being cheap, Power Director 16 is no slouch when it comes to video editing. It is regularly updated and adds the newest feature as soon as possible. It was one of the first video editing software to add support for 360-degree video editing. Like DaVinci Resolve, this one also focuses heavily on color correction and provides you with a plethora of tools to get that perfect tint on your videos. Other features include support for a wide variety of audio, video, and image format along with support for multi-cam editing.

Incredibly user friendly, this is definitely considered one of the easiest to learn platforms for new video editors. The user-interface is divided into three distinct components: add photos and video, choose a style, and view your movie. It is worth noting here that Muvee Reveal X isn’t a sophisticated as some of the other programs on our list. Muvee Essentially works by “analyzing” the raw footage you give it, choosing the highest quality pieces and integrating them into a movie using predetermined “styles,” which integrate special effects, transitions, etc. Though there are customization options that do allow you more creative liberty. But, if you are looking for something incredibly simple and easy to use, Muvee is a good option.
