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.

"Love using VSDC for any day to day editing"

March 29, 2015  |  By Meredith Chris

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

Love using VSDC for any day to day editing that I do but one thing that I would love to see would be the ability to watch the video as you edit in real time rather than having to stop editing and open another window just to see what you have done.

I think this would be valuable because it means that the user can get a faster Work flow.

Cons

Other than this I love VSDC and hope you keep up the good work.

"Excellent software with infinite possibilities."

March 25, 2015  |  By Jack Ambler

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

This amazing freeware comes with endless amounts of tools and gizmos for a truly superb quality video in almost any format known to man.

It is 100% free of charge and is perfect for amateur video editors and YouTubers. I have used this program all month and have encountered not a single problem.

Cons

The software takes a bit of getting to know and it's interface can seem a little bizarre to come users at first.

My anti-virus got a little angry during installation and had to remove adware hidden within the program. Since then though, I have yet to see any more conflicts with my anti-virus.

Summary

VSDC Video Editor is a beautiful piece of software, and I am delighted with the results it has given me.

After a few hiccups at the start, (mentioned in the 'Cons' paragraph) I am very pleased that such excellent software is available for free on the internet.

Upon installation, I refused to believe that the software would encode my finished project correctly and with a suitable file size. A 30 minute video in full HD was produced at the end and it put a huge grin on my face to see such a wondrous file after just an hour of editing.

I would recommend VSDC Video Editor to absolutely anyone, from clueless elders to the professional editor. Give it a go, and you might just find that it is just what you need, for the price of thin air. A true rival to the likes of Sony, Apple and Adobe.

Enjoy it, Earth.

"Clean and simple user interface"

March 15, 2015  |  By DeMarcoto

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

The program even has a tool for creating credit-style scrolling text. It can also do interesting things with still images, like rendering a slow zoom into a picture while text floats across it. Also the editor supports multiple audio tracks, so you can have overlapping layers of music, effects and voice-overs etc.

Cons

great program

Summary

Free Video Editor is the complete package: a full-featured video editor that's attractive and easy to use.

"Easy free video tool for trimming videos"

March 15, 2015  |  By JoNawee

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

The editor good apply basic tasks common to most video projects are improving video quality, cutting and organizing scenes, and adding audio and visual elements.
If you need something a step above the most basic video editor but not at the level of a full-fledged video editing suite, VSDC should meet your needs with little hassle or superfluous functionality.

Cons

limited number of transitions

"Adware Galore!!!"

March 15, 2015

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

Do not install VSDC Free Video Editor

Cons

Installing VSDC Free Video Editor will infect your system with adware. Uninstalling the software will not remove the malicious code. Windows system restore will not remove the malware. I've read that AVG 2015 will remove it and am trying that next. I'm appalled that cnet gives this such a favorable review!

Summary



Updated on Mar 15, 2015

AVG 2015 did not detect the malicious code. I finally got rid of it by uninstalling Chrome, which required first stopping processes in Windows task manager. They did a good job of making the adware extremely difficult to remove.

"Easiest free video maker available today"

March 15, 2015  |  By taxwood

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

The program works in both the standard timeline view, or in a simplified storyboard format ? and you can switch back and forth between these views according to the amount of control you need in your project. While some of the features, like the new title maker, take some getting used to, they are still much easier to implement than any competing products.
VSDC comes with useful video effects that allow you to improve your video's quality, such as changing brightness levels. You can also add groovy special effects like "aged film" or "slow motion."
You can export into several video formats in AVI, MP4, DVD, WMV, MOV, MKV, H.263/H.264 codecs, etc.

Cons

Works great

"Free editing video files within minutes of downloading"

March 06, 2015  |  By mikeGuZov

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

I found this video editor to be extremely easy to use. Everything is clearly labeled and easily accessible. It is set up so that most tools only involve pointing and clicking to reach your destination. We didn't have any problems understanding the process and were able to jump right into editing video files within minutes of downloading the software.

Cons

tested pretty well.
