Best Video Editing Software Programs


The Top Ten

1 Sony Vegas Pro

simply very professional, you can make hollywood kinda videos with this. it might not be very simple to use at first but this list isn't for the easiest programm but the best one.

Sony Vegas Pro is a really great software but if you want to buy it for free for about one month, there's many videos and it's virus free! They have amazing transitions and effects!

More features than movie maker. More accurate, more professional. Movie maker is for noobs. This software makes professional movies not retarded ones.

It's a good software but I ain't paying $600 for it. I risked a virus but got it

2 Windows Movie Maker

I used to use Windows Movie Maker. It wasn't awful, but it was incredibly unreliable. It's decent for beginners and quick edits, but overall it sucks. It definitely doesn't deserve to be nowhere near #1 spot, and it is distasteful that is is actually higher than Adobe After Effects and Adobe Premiere Pro. - wubbalubbadubdub

The original movie maker is awful. Windows Live Movie Maker (the latest movie maker version) is so much better. I definitely recommend it.

The only problem in windows movie maker is that it is supported by certain operating systems only. Otherwise this is the most easy and nice software.

If you're a beginner editor, start with this. Or iMovie. - naFrovivuS

They probably don't know this editor yet... But this is simply the best... It's simple but elegant... It provides easy editing interface... - giodiosdadosiman

Simply a great program. Runs fairly smoothly, has lots of great features, just great to work with. 9.8/10 - naFrovivuS

5 Pinnacle Studio

This software is so awesome. I got it for my birthday and I just exploded. It is worth getting! Get it! I have made so many cool videos with the software. I have gotten so into it that I have been making videos every day. I use it for my YouTube channel and I love it. So please don't hesitate to buy the Pinnacle Studio 16 Ultimate!

I used it for the first time a couple of months ago. At first I found the interface hard for me. But as I got used to it this software reveals all of its good things to me. Love it.

Completely great :D

The Contenders

11 Adobe After Effects

If you don't know what this is your probably not that good at video editing. Windows movie maker is not the best it is a joke.

The Best software... With easy Interface

I like it so how can I get it

12 Corel VideoStudio

Looks good to me; has 1,500+ effects, and professional editing tools. I want to try it

So many bugs such as panning laggy, sound laggy, import some high quality images/videos but after export/render give me poor quality (blur+pixel), and so many crap thing with this softwares. I'm done with it

13 Cyberlink
14 Wondershare Filmora

Its amazing

15 Video Edit Master 1.8
16 Adobe Premiere Elements

My Asian mom thinks Pro is too expensive so she has forced me to downgrade to this :(

17 Edius

Its good. Really good.

18 Lightworks
19 Camtasia Studio

The second best one - mrmariofan20

Ez to use


This one is so underrated, but it's actually one of the best one's I've ever used.

21 MediaImpression for Kodak
22 Video Star

Why is Video Star so underrated?! It literally is the best editing software ever! It has many presets and the app's free! But some of the packs cost $0.99 - $4.99 but it is super cheap! Every summer, they sell out packs for free! And also, there's a pack for $4.99 for all the effects for VideoFX Live and Video Star for free for one month! That's a great deal!

This is so easy and professional!

23 Windows Movie Maker 2.6/Beta
24 Flip Share
25 VideoPad
26 Avid Media Composer
27 Nero Video
28 SmartPixel
