Best Free Video Editor Programs
Unlike iMovie for the Mac, which you can only get by buying a Mac computer (Not available for download), the latest version of Movie Maker can be downloaded for free by any Windows user.
Having said all that, the latest version of Movie Maker is not a standalone download any more, and comes as part of the free SP2 or SP3 package, but considering this includes all the latest security upgrades, there's nothing really to complain about.
Movie Maker comes with all versions of Windows, but Vista Premium and Ultimate versions allow you to edit HD video and make a DVD.
Essentially, the Movie Maker for the Mac computer. Sexy looks and very easy to use with an intuitive interface. Apple always wins the trophy for good looks and clever design over Movie Maker, but there's really very little to choose between the two when it comes to video editing ability.
You'll have no problem importing, editing and producing great looking videos with this trendy tool.
It doesn't have a lot of features, but that makes it very easy to use and stable. You can quickly edit a video for use on the Internet, and VideoSpin even has a quick YouTube upload option. Nice!
There are no effects, no video capture facility, no audio edit (Though you can add audio), and you can only export to AVI, Flash, Real, or MPEG-1 (If you pay a few bucks, you can also output in DivX, MPEG-2, or MPEG-4), but if all you want to do is tidy up a short video for YouTube, this could be the one for you.
The only really annoying thing about VideoSpin are the ads on the user interface (Not the videos!), which can easily be hit by accident when using the drop-down menu.
That's right. No software to download and install. Just join for free and edit your video on the web. Sounds exciting doesn't it? Well, as it's number four in our list, you can guess it has a few problems.
The main one is it is online, and you will need a fast broadband connection to make this work for you. Some of you with slower Internet connections will simply lose the will to live before it finishes uploading ;-)
It is easy to use, accepts multiple video formats, has a good collection of transitions, sound tracks, effects and titles, but uploading can be a bit patchy and you you cannot download your finished video, as JumpCut (owned by Yahoo) doubles up as a YouTube clone and allows you to host your video with them.
This may be great for some people, but I think most of you will find it a bit restrictive.
It accepts a wide variety of formats, has decent support, forum and tutorials, but this is probably one for more experienced users.
It doesn't have to cost a fortune though. The video editing software I recommend (and use myself) is Sony Movie Studio (See left). Sony Movie Studio also includes Sony DVD Architect, which is a DVD Authoring software, allowing you to create DVDs with menus.
