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.

Hollywood-like videos - BorisRule

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!

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.

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. - EchoX0

I'm upgrading to this from iMovie!

I gotta learn this one day

Nothing beats the features of Adobe Premiere

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

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

22 Video Star

Good app

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!
