Best Video Editing Software Programs

The Top Ten

1 Sony Vegas Pro

Amazing software. Really easy to use and has so many possibilities. However, it's not cheap.

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.

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.

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.

Possible one of the worst editors out there. You can add text, music, transitions, and split. THAT'S IT.

3 Adobe Premiere Pro

Easily the best, easy to learn, but so much to do with it.

Nothing beats the features of Adobe Premiere

The Best and easiest software I had ever seen...

I gotta learn this one day

4 PowerDirector

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

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

5 Final Cut
6 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

7 iMovie

iMovie is so easy to use it sometimes scares me.

I am currently using this but one day I will upgrade to adobe Premiere

Easy to use but can be a little bit annoying at times

8 AVS Video Editor
9 MAGIX Movie Edit Pro
10 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

The Contenders

11 iMovie HD
12 Video Edit Master 1.8
13 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

14 Windows Movie Maker 2.6/Beta
15 Adobe Premiere Elements

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

16 Cyberlink
17 Edius

Its good. Really good.

18 Wondershare Filmora

Its amazing

19 Lightworks
20 Camtasia Studio

The second best one

Ez to use

21 VSDC

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

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!

Good app

23 MediaImpression for Kodak
24 Flip Share
25 Wondershare Video Editor

Powerful but user-friendly video editing software.
