Editors' Review

+

VSDC Free Video Editor looks and feels just like a professional video editor. In fact, if feels almost identical to Final Cut Pro in a lot of ways. If you want to experience that style of in-depth video editing, this program is an epic way to do it for free. Be warned, though, that there's a steep learning curve unless you already have some experience.

This program checks in at about 26MB, which isn't gigantic, but is still relatively large. For that, you'll get a program that is a dead ringer for professional editing programs. It has the same sort of timeline editing style that lets you combine multiple cuts, add transitions, and render them into a complete project. As such, it isn't very easy to use unless you really know what you're doing. Few things are labeled or intuitive, and all of your tools are spread out across multiple menus. If you can find the features, there are plenty of ways to cut, reshape, and modify your video's picture and audio, though. You can even kick the quality up to 30 FPS and 1080p HD. VSDC Free Video Editor supports just about every video format you can think of, so you'll have no problem turning any video into a project.

This video editor gives you tons of control and editing power, but you'll have to know how to use it. The program could use a manual to help novice users comb through all of the features. Without that, VSDC Free Video Editor will take a lot of experimenting or previous editing know-how to figure out. It's worth spending plenty of time with, though.

"Really a very nice editor"

July 15, 2015  |  By KevFarell

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.2.1.372

Pros

I recently started using "VSDC video editor" . It is really a very nice
editor or say the one I have been looking for because it provides all the
things that i was looking for.

Cons

The videos which i merged were of mp4 type with 720p resolution. But after
merging them and adding some songs, the quality of the video just got bad
and now I am not able to figure it out how to maintain that same quality of
resultant video. also i want only mp4 file outcome.

when I play that merged video using this editor, they are fine (of same
resolution as the were individually), but I want an independent file which
is of same quality and of mp4 type.

Summary

so i request you to kindly guide me as in how to solve my above problem if
there is some setting which can be done in this editor.

THANK YOU

"Can't Even Install It Because Antivirus Won't Let Me"

July 12, 2015  |  By Brain_Buster

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.2.1.372

Pros

Did not give me diarrhea.

Cons

It's a virus so potent that my Avira antivirus won't even let me open the program after downloading it from cnet.com.

Summary

cnet blows goats.

"First off all THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THIS TOOL !!!"

July 09, 2015  |  By EeliaHaney

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.2.1.372

Pros

Such a wonderful program you guy have created! Five star. Just a slight issue, after processing, all video files' metadata are locked and un-editable. It would be a great to leave these information unlocked so it's possible to give the file a rating, input tags, enter comments...

Cons

Please do let me know if this feature is available.

"Works Well, but adds malware to computer."

July 08, 2015  |  By acina75

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.2.1.372

Pros

Easy to figure out. Can do a lot for a free program.

Cons

Added a malware called "Razor" to my computer. It was easy to uninstall though. It also tries to install a few other programs you may not want.

Summary

I like it, despite the cons.

"Great product, here are some suggestions."

June 15, 2015  |  By KenKamiyak

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

When you zoom the timeline, the window should stay centered on the current time marker, not on the center of the window.

I would like the speed option to allow smaller degrees than 1%, this is for lip syncing videos to music.

When entering values in the properties window, it would be good if the TAB key moved the cursor to the next input box.

Cons

Absolutely great the program

"It's a great piece of software."

June 04, 2015  |  By Martinbal

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

I am currently using your latest version of Free video Editor VSDC. It is really pretty good and i think i can handle it very well.

Cons

I could not find any documentation.

Summary

1.I would like to see a direct split option for video besides the cutting and splitting windows.
2.It would be extremely convinient for editors if video from one track could be inserted into another track.

"Thank you for a wonderful piece of software."

May 18, 2015  |  By KnutHoff

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

I'm a fulltime musician, I'm currently working on an opera project with one hour plus worth of nonstop music, and it's got more than fourty scenes or songs. The music drafts are recorded in Cubase, and now I'm preparing a movie file containing the rudimentary soundtrack with lyrics and comments onscreen. A film that I can use when discussing keys with my colleagues in the song department, and when discussing timing with my scenographer/dramaturgist/producer (I'm into music, I don't know what terminology you guys use). So far I've spent more than twenty hours intensively with your software, and it seems to fit my needs perfectly.

Cons

However I've experienced some crashes. And I've found some areas that could be improved. I've looked at your site, and I haven't found anything looking like a forum for users. So I wonder: Is there a user forum somewhere?

Summary

Again, thank you for a wonderful piece of software.

"First, I would like to say, overall, the VideoEditor"

May 08, 2015  |  By Mellinfraaie

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

First, I would like to say, overall, the VideoEditor was fairly easy to learn for timeline, cuts, cropping, and the effects I needed even without a comprehensive manual.
The only thing that really slowed me down was I wasn't calling the effects the same name as the program, but, I found what I needed.

I did get the 6min. video done for my son's school rocket team done after a lot of 3am sessions !

Cons

Question, is there a 'pin' or 'lock"-to-track position so clips aren't accidentally moved on timeline by errant mouseclicks ?

Summary

One effect I could have used would be to change a clip's cropping window over time, like the zoom.
The video I edited would have shown more detail in the area of interest by a different aspect ratio when zooming to a small area of the parent frame to avoid overlap of subject, then change to a higher percentage of the clip's area when zooming the clip to a larger size in the frame.

Actual bug/glitch that was particularly troublesome, was random audio fades would stop working randomly in th project when editing other tracks not containing that fade. The settings would be correct, but, the fade would have no effect when the video was played or if OK in preview, would not render to the final correctly and would be ineffective in the editor.
The workaround was to reload a new fade, format the fade, check in preview, save project then continue, always checking all the fades in the project. When all were working and saved I rendered to final which had the errors. Reloaded the project and immediately rendered and the final came out OK.

Thanks for any help.
