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.

    "Great program, many features - amazing that it is free"

    July 22, 2014   |   By cutrone

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.9.202

    Pros

    A lot of very useful features. Once mastered, is very easy to use. While I have heard complaints about product support, my experience with them was great. I had an issue with the program not importing the whole audio track from an AVI file. I contacted Flashintegro and Dmitry got back to me very quickly asking for the original file I had a problem with. I sent it to him and within a day, he emailed back and sent an replacement .dll file to install which cured the problem.

    Cons

    The documentation is not detailed enough, though I suspect it may be that this may be in part attributable to translating from the Russian since that is where the program was written. There are several youtube videos on using the program which I think may have been done by the author of the software which were very helpful. With continued use, I quickly became familiar with the program and am able to use it with ease.

    "My video took me 3 hours and the result was fabulous!"

    July 17, 2014   |   By AltEugene

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.9.202

    Pros

    Perfect in category Video Editor, any effects, background image eraser, audio track replacer, mixing any video on one scene, add subtitle and other text, capture movies from hd cams, lossless compression and more.
    It's not simple but very effective in getting done what one wants to. Multi Panels allow direct multitasking, diverse editing effects (color correction is outstandingly semi-pro)-- overall, it is capable to do more than regular home editing.

    Cons

    It's NOT easy at first. But once you figure it out, it's a breeze!

    Summary

    I have tried several and this one works the BEST and it is FREE.
    It works just perfectly. Cut fast and precisely.

    "Not easy to work with."

    July 14, 2014   |   By ron.veltkamp

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.9.202

    Pros

    Free is a nice pro

    Cons

    I tried removing the audio part from an A/V segment, but could not find how to do that, so quit after half an hour. Nearly all buttons are grey. Adjusting the audio was grey also. Make an app that works easy or do not make it at all.

    Summary

    Unless you intend to spend hours figuring out how this works, avoid it an get something from Pinnacle, which is always easy to use.

    "Elementary rotation of video and image objects"

    June 30, 2014   |   By kutuniotito

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.8.148

    Pros

    VSDC in a excellent choice for easy creation of slick education, information or promotion videos. An interesting alternative to Adobe Creative Suite Design Standard (especially After effects).

    Mature and powerful
    Customizable interface and toolbars
    Feels native on Windows

    Cons

    All have worked extremely well.

    Summary

    An excellent vector motion video editor that will satisfy industry veterans as well as users just getting into creating motion object (graphics and video)
    But if you're looking for a powerful alternative to Adobe Aftereffect-and especially, one without a subscription requirement-you should definitely check out VSDC.

    "ALERT!! AVOID!! Installed a Browser Hijacker!!"

    June 25, 2014

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.8.148

    Pros

    Not much. I tried to create a picture show with music. Easily dragged over 8 pictures and added music, but couldn't figure out how to add more pics. Frustrated at the performance (slow!) and UI. Ended up starting a new project, but it choked on my 400+ pictures and took over 20 minutes to import them. Ended up not using what I tried to create as it took too long and I had to go.

    Cons

    It installed a browser hijacker that routes searches and your home page to a "trovi" (or something like that) site. PC slowed down tremendously, too. If you get this, anti-virus sw won't see it and Malwarebytes said they cleaned it, but didn't. Use the ad-blocker software, i.e. Superantispyware, adware, etc. and they will take care of it. You can also search on how to clean the trovi browser hijacker.

    Summary

    Slow sw package that installed a browser hijacker/virus. Wouldn't recommend.

    "Kudos!!! Love Your Software!!!!"

    June 11, 2014   |   By BonnieStolecki

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.8.148

    Pros

    My daughter came up with the idea of creating a weather report for a 8th science project for school. Had two weeks to do it; never used green screen or software for green screen. I'm not computer illiterate, but this was new territory.

    The end result obviously was done by an amateur, but the teacher LOVED it. She showed it to ALL her classes, saying, "This is what an A+ looks like!"

    Cons

    nothing that

    Summary

    Had to watch a YouTube video to get the basics down, but from there we were able to tweak for best results. I give your video editor an A+, too!!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!
