Editors' Review

+

Free Video Editor's snipping tools and millisecond counters make it easy to edit video and audio clips quickly and accurately. While advanced users may find it thin in options, others will appreciate its ease of use.

Pros

Linear layout: Free Video Editor's user interface places the audio spectral display beneath the preview window, with counters, player and edit controls, and other controls in linear layers for minimal visual clutter and maximum efficiency.

Edit tags: We could edit, set, and delete all tags or all auto tags from the Edit menu.

Shortcuts: Free Video Editor offers many customizable hotkeys, and not just the usual Play-Pause-Stop variety, but also useful commands, like Seek, Zoom Up and Down, and Edit Tags.

Cons

Balky drag-and-drop: On first use, we were unsuccessful in several attempts to drag and drop files into Free Video Editor from various locations and in several formats. After we loaded a video using Add Files, we were able to drag and drop.

Balky Help: We hoped clicking Learn how to use on the Help menu would open a tutorial or manual, but nothing happened.

Few options: Free Video Editor has few options. Many users won't see that as a problem, but those who want to customize audio or video performance have better choices in other freeware.

Bottom Line

Free Video Editor is a good choice for users who want to edit video quickly and efficiency. Amateur video producers may want to look at tools with more options, such as custom audio and video codecs.

"Almost perfect for helmet cam video trimming"

June 17, 2015  |  By denmayday

 |  Version: Free Video Editor 1.4.11.301

Pros

Finally I found possibly the quickest way to cut my helmet camera videos. Files I cut are about 2GB large .mov videos and they are loading almost instantly in the editor and I can cut a piece of a footage I need and save in the original format again almost instantly. Very impressed!

Cons

- close current file functionality is really needed. When I finished trimming my video I want to delete original one but unable to do it as the program is using it. So I have to close the program and then delete the file - annoying.
- when zooming in (for smoother quick hand scrolling of a large footage) and current position pointer got to the right side of the window there is a button above it to slide the window but for some reason it moves the pointer as well which is not expected behavior and I have to go back a look where I left.

Summary

Very impressed with this piece of software and I'm using it almost every day. But you have to watch out when installing it and opt out from any unwanted software installation (choose Advanced, not Automatic install option!). Few minor issues but still the best I've seen so far.

"Fit My Needs"

March 28, 2015  |  By Izgler

 |  Version: Free Video Editor 1.4.11.301

Pros

Easy to use. Once you use it a couple of times, it is a no-brainer. Keeps original format by default with no degradation. Has the ability to output to additional formats.

Cons

Chose "Custom" when installing to uncheck the adware.
How to use it initially is a little unclear, but quickly figured it out.
Can't strip audio.
Doesn't export to mpg or mpeg

Summary

I needed to take a longer video of baseball pitching and edit the innings down to just the pitches. Other software would degrade the image quality for some reason. This program did not do that. While watching the video I use the scissors to begin and end selections over and over, but did not understand that you must click "invert selections" once finished to actually get the video between the clicks. This button should really be called "Begin Cut" and "End Cut". The selections are red, so that's the indication that they are actually cuts. But, I figured it out. Then, if you just click "Save Video" you will get a nice stream of high quality video with your clips joined together. Perfect for my needs. If you want each clip to be its own video, you simply check the "split by selections" box before saving the video.

I would recommend to anybody with basic video conversion or splitting needs. And don't worry about the adware. By now everybody knows to look at the installer carefully and uncheck unwanted programs. Seems like every friggin piece of software comes with this garbage now... such is the world we live in.
