video editing software

Nov 22, 2013 6:26PM PST

I need recs for a decent yet free video editing software that is not as simple as like Video Dub by Microsoft?
My favorite is actually VideoStudio by Corel, too bad it's so expensive and memory-consuming.

As we moved to HD video editing the memory and file sizes are about four times larger. This has some prior gen users screaming it's consuming memory.

I wonder if they can catch up or will they be left behind?

PS. Simple? I think the stuff by Apple is pretty nice.

My current computer is not mine.

But the office has moved me onto a Lenovo y510p, 16GB ram, i7 Haswell, dual SLI video (I would have gone single) so as far as I can tell this is about as far out you can go before heading back to desktops.

free video editing software

Hello friend, there are several good video editing software available to you. they are listed below.
1. Windows Movie Maker
Windows Movie Maker is supremely easy to use. Just drag and drop a few clips onto the program (most formats are supported) and immediately they're assembled into order; transitions and special effects are just a click away.

2. Kate's Video Toolkit
While there's nothing too surprising in Kate's Video Toolkit, it does provide some basic but useful editing features. So you can trim files or join them, link two videos with a transition, create a sequence of videos with a custom soundtrack, and there's a simple file format conversion tool as well.

3. Avidemux
Avidemux is a small but capable open source video editor which can help you join clips, cut them (without re-encoding), and apply a lengthy list of useful filters (Add Logo, Crop, Flip, Rotate, Resize, Sharpen, Remove Noise, tweak brightness, contrast colours and more).

4. VSDC Free Video Editor
Non-linear video editors can take some time to learn, and VSDC Free Video Editor is no exception (a lack of useful documentation doesn't help, either).
If you persevere, though, you'll find a capable editor with plenty of functionality: drawing and selection tools, plenty of colour and lighting corrections, some useful filters, transitions, audio effects and more.

According to me, Adobe Premiere is the best video editing software.
