Best Video Editing Software Programs

The Top Ten
1 Sony Vegas Pro

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!

I understand that Movie Maker is free, but it is complete garbage when compared to the amazingness that is Sony Vegas. All the professionals use it and it's overall a very good editing program.

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

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

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 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.

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

Sure, it's pretty limited, but it's free and very easy to use.

3 Adobe Premiere Pro

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

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

I'm upgrading to this from iMovie!

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...

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.

7 iMovie

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

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 Contenders
11 iMovie HD
12 Wondershare Filmora
13 Video Edit Master 1.8
14 Corel VideoStudio

15 Windows Movie Maker 2.6/Beta
16 Adobe Premiere Elements
17 Cyberlink
18 Edius

Its good. Really good.

19 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!

20 Lightworks
21 Camtasia Studio

The second best one


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