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.

"You have an excellent free video editor."

February 28, 2015  |  By Ellionorast

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.3.1.339

Pros

I downloaded VSDC a few days ago, did some trials and reading from the online help, then launched into editing our wedding video.
All was going well, I had video files inserted, and still photos, with music behind.

Cons

It is a good program, navigation is a little illogical, but otherwise all is fine.

"Paid Customer Support and Terrible Instructions"

February 27, 2015  |  By jor004

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.3.1.339

Pros

Seems it does a lot, but it really does NOT.

Cons

Even the simplest things, like cutting out a piece of video, are difficult to do and take a LONG time to figure out. The instructions provided are either incomplete or simply do NOT work. THEN they charge for customer support, to help you do and fix what their instructions should. Very convenient!

Summary



Updated on Mar 1, 2015

In addition to that, this thing comes with A LOAD of adware and junkware of all kinds. Not sure the positive reviews are from users or from employees!!

"Enough malware toxins to qualify for an EPA superfund"

February 23, 2015

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.3.1.339

Pros

Didn't bother to look at the applicatoin after it vomited all over my hard drice

Cons

This was the most toxic install I have ever experienced. Download.com you should be ashamed of yourself. Any software company who can't stand alone on the integrity of its own software doesn't deserve to be reviewed, much less with a four star editor's rating. My computer now needs counseling after being brutally raped by this insult of an installation. I have also lost all confidence of any of the software posted on this site.

Summary

Don't go near this without a prophylactic and a hazmat suit.

"Just DL'd your application and it looks very robust."

February 20, 2015  |  By tINIirbla

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.3.1.339

Pros

The GUI looks nice as well. However, I have 2 queries.
First, checking your Help Us page, shows a drop down menu for choosing the level of support, but I can't for the life of me find a way to send you money. I don't see a Paypal button or instructions on how to support your project.
Secondly, I would like to know if this software allows you to produce videos with split screen picture-in-picture. This is very important for me, as I am going to be producing video tutorials. Often those tutorials will have more than one camera angle or more than one person simultaneously. Scanning your documentation, and exploring the application, didn't reveal an obvious way to handle those chores.

Cons

Thanks for your assistance.

"Class-leading software."

February 06, 2015  |  By RobiWey

 |  Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.3.1.339

Pros

Great program I am using VSDC for the set the watermark on the video to protect it from further copying.

Cons

I really need additional indepth documentation. The documentation accessible from the FAQ's is anemic at best for the novice.
