About Video Editing Software

Overview

Video editing software can be used to make simple operations such as cut parts from a video, join 2 or more videos, add text, watermark, audio file, change the size or the format, but also for advanced tasks such as applying complex effects and making the video to look more professional.

These programs are using significant hardware resources (CPU, RAM and graphic card) and contain a variety of features hence can be hard to use if these options are not wisely arranged on the interface.

There are some free tools to make the basic editing tasks (rotate, cut, join ..), but for more advanced features you have to spend some money. The best part is that they aren't expensive and you have where to choose from.

About our Top
As you can see in each product review (the screenshots), we tested all these video editing tools and we have the following takeaways:

  • the free programs are only for basic tasks such as split, merge, rotate, basic effects and filters.
  • a paid program worth the money and the prices are decent. You will create good looking videos using high quality templates and effects.
  • in general, these programs are not very easy to use, no matter if they are free or paid; you have to be patient a few days if you are new to video editing, until you learn how to use the program; we have scored the easy of use in our top.

What To Look For?

Editing Fearures
The best editing software offer a large number of options to modify the video as you want. They include high quality effects and transforms, you can work through a timeline and arrange video's parts and other elements such as images, audio and transitions with a few moves.

Easy of Use
Although a software can include a lot of options, if it is hard to use you did nothing. Our advice is to take a few minutes and download & test the trial for one or two product that look interesting for you, before you will make a decision about which product to use. Surprisingly, many video editing software are not very easy to use from the start so you have to be patient at the beginning.

Conclusion

Adobe Premiere Elements is very easy to use and include a large number of basic and advanced features to create beatiful videos.
