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.

"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.

"Ads by Dragon Branch Virus included in the download"

May 07, 2015  |  By LJent

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

HIDDEN EXTRA ADWARE INCLUDED! please note the sarcasm

Cons

Immediately after downloading this software, I went to uninstall and noticed that 'DRAGON BRANCH' had been installed also.....'adware developers are using other channels to distribute their adverse product. Compromised users have reportedly caught this bug when installing free software off of questionable sites and in some cases even on web resources with immaculate reputation. The virus is built into the setup for multiple open-source tools, including cracked Adobe Flash Player updates, media players, streaming video downloaders and similar potentially popular utilities. In most cases the users opt into the bundle without noticing it.'

Summary

DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS SOFTWARE.... NOT WORTH THE HASSLE OF REMOVING ALL THE LITTLE HIDDEN EXTRAS THAT YOU ARE UNAWARE OF!

"Everyone should have the video editor! It's the best"

April 28, 2015  |  By SalmaKatt

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

I have just recently downloaded the VSCD Free Video Editor.
I like this Video Editor, it is really nice and also has a lot of functions!

Cons

I like using this program for school work, but it's the most frustrating thing when I do an hour or so of work and then the program crashes and I can't recover anything.

Summary

An auto-save or a recovery feature would be greatly appreciated.

"Hey there I started using VSDC recently, after having"

April 26, 2015  |  By Maria Kumar

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.1.0.354

Pros

Hey there I started using VSDC recently, after having tried many different video editors.

I like VSDC, and have found it's one of the only free options to make non-linear/multi-track videos under Windows.
I really think you should make a new "universal" app based on your existing program.
There are hardly any modern video editors for Windows 10 yet, and none at all that allow to mix several videos on different tracks like VSCD can. Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade, so it will be gigantic, and run on most PCs in the world. Plus, universal apps means you only have to write the code once and it'll work under XBox or Windows phones too.

Cons

I really want to keep making my videos under Windows and not switch to Mac, and I think VSDC would be the perfect app for that. If you make the interface a bit more intuitive and make the buttons bigger so it works with touch screens, I think it could be tomorrow's video editor under Windows. And you could make money off in-app ads maybe.

Summary

Thanks for your great program. cheers!
