Windows 10 has a built-in Photos app that offers some basic video editing features such as Merge or Trim/Split. If you are not aware of it, go and give it a try. It works surprisingly good and gets the job done. But if you need video editing features beyond these basic functions, you would look further from these built-in tools.
VSDC Video Editor Free is a well-made video editing tool that packs lots of features without breaking your bank. It supports a wide variety of popular codecs and video formats as well as audio codecs and image files, with a modern intuitive user interface that loads with all kinds of wizards to make your video creation and editing as simple as possible. Better, it works quite well even on a lower-end computer that doesn’t have strong GPU power.
There are a few ways to start a new Editing project. You can use the Import content button to import video or image files you have already captured. You can also use the Screen capture button to capture a screenshot or use the Video capture button to start a screencast session. That’s right. You can use the VSDC Video Editor
Video effects are essential to any video editing process. VSDC supports a large number of video effects such as color correction, object transformation and video filters to video and image files. You can even create your own effects by combining available effects and filters. How about a picture-in-picture effect, split screen, Chroma Key, or pixelated mask?
Not only that, you can apply a number of audio effects and filters to audio track in video and audio files as well, such as sound normalization, volume correction, echo, reverberation, equalizer, etc.
On top of all these, you can also add objects to your video project to enhance the whole experience, things like adding a line, rectangle, or a line of text or subtitles, etc.
To save you more time, VSDC Free Video Editor not only provides ready-made profiles for exporting to social networks but also offers you to upload your video directly to YouTube right from the app without switching windows or tabs.
VSDC Video Editor Free is truly a free semi-professional video editor that offers tons of advanced features like level filters, video/audio effects and tools that make your video editing skill to another level. Not like many other free tools on the market, it offers no watermarks, no trial periods, and no format limitations. And heck, it’s the one officially recommended by GoPro team, believe it or not.
They do have a Pro version with a few more advanced features like Hardware acceleration, Sub-pixel resolution, or Audio waveform, available at $19.99 per year. But 99% of the time, the Free version works perfectly.
