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.

"I love your free video editing software"

April 17, 2015  |  By Daniel-Garciaa

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

Hi, I love your free video editing software and have publicly recommended it on my Google+ page. I have a question/request though: I cannot find an option to change the resolution of a project once it has been set at the beginning. Am I missing something, or is this option not included? This is an important feature for me, so I appreciate whatever you can do in this regard. Thanks.

Cons

Change resolution during project

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

I recently downloaded to try out VSDC, and was surprised at it's design and tools available. Nice program. Seems to be just what I've been looking for. I especially like how imported images are handled with the image click and drag resizing feature.

Cons

Nice program

"Hi, awesome editor, thank you for offering it free"

April 05, 2015  |  By SWinebender

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

I would like to say that this video editor is fantastic. I don't have any video editing knowledge, but the software is very easy to use and intuitive for most of it's functions. However, I am working in QA field and I think some feedback would help you.

I have used two versions and the first one (2.01.56) it had some problems with the memory usage crashing when many files were loaded. My use case (what I needed the tool for) was to join many small videos (about 100) with some pictures and a soundtrack for the resulting video.
In 3.0 the same scenario works perfect. I think now it really moves faster.

I didn't needed to use the new tools so I don't know how they work, but I've seen some tutorials on youtube that look very good (I found that at: forum.videohelp.com/threads/352131-Adding-fades-with-freeware-VSDC-Video-Editor)

Cons

A small miss-typing bug in both versions: in the right click menu for the 'Project explorer' there is 'Properies' instead of 'Properties'.

Summary

Once again, congratulations for the good work!

"Worthless."

April 04, 2015  |  By boogeyratt

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 3.0.0.345

Pros

Free
I think there are transitions for scenes or clips or something.
That's it.

Cons

You can't actually do much with this. People claiming that you can must be absolutely new to video editing. Almost every option I've tried is grayed out.

Also, the installation is LOADED with adware. I'm familiar enough with this tactic that I ensure I ALWAYS select "Custom" options where available so none of it was installed on my machine, but I pity those who are duped into installing all the crap that comes with it.

Summary

Not even worth the few seconds it takes to download.

"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.
