Video editing software

Postby gsc » Mar 2nd, 2018, 10:18 pm

I am curious what people are using for decent easy to use video editing software. Currently I am using cyber link power director 13 ultra. It's not to bad I guess but I'm looking to see what other decent programs are out there.

Apparently not too many doing video editing.

For the very little bit I've done I have used Windows Movie Maker.
Works fine for putting a few vacation video's together to bore our friends.
I know the voices aren't real but they sure do come up with some good ideas!

I had Sony Vegas back when I had my Window's machine and I thought it was a great program - don't know if it still is or not, its been a few years.

I've never been a fan of Adobe Premier - way too complicated for us technically challenged.

I've tried the Final Cut demo on my Mac and thought it was a great program, easy to use and lots of tools.

But in all honesty, for as much video editing I do, I'm with Bsuds on Window's Movie Maker or iMovie on the Mac.

GoPro has free software, I'm not sure if you even need to own a GoPro to get it, though. It was easy for me to learn to use.

Have a look at software from Magix and also from AVS4You. After you try the demo, AVS4You has a great Unlimited deal that I have had for years and I can upgrade to new a version for nothing. You also have access to 'all' their media software for the one price.

There are some open source ones available too, like openshot and avidemux (for Windows,Mac,Linux). Avidemux is also available at, so you could try it out without installing it on your computer (you could 'install' it too a usb thumb-drive and run it from there).
