    "Free and Awesome Stuff!"

    September 24, 2014  |   By dianafroumlest

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.2.0.310

    Pros

    I use VSDC Editor, and are not too familiar with all of the other products, although I will occasionally use some of the others when I need to, so my review here is mainly on the editor.
    It's very user-friendly and I think anyone who knows the basic ways of computers can probably just jump in and use it, unlike Sony Vegas which is a bit intimidating.

    Cons

    Lots of updates take care of reported or known bugs and yes I get the odd glitch but the support is excellent.

    Summary

    It is my great pleasure to recommend this software to anyone those who love these kinds of projects

    "Absolute poison"

    September 23, 2014  |   By TinyTrouble

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.2.0.310

    Pros

    Absolutely none
    Non functional
    First install execution fails with side-by-side error (Windows 7 64 bit)
    Second installation require more than 4 Gb RAM to load

    Cons

    Installs Yahoo Community SmartBar unannounced (even if you ay no to all the other parasites it tries to install). Yahoo Community SmartBar cannot be removed using Programs control panel, attempts to remove it using Microsoft Fixit cause more parasites to be installed. It kills system restore so you cannot get rid of it that way.

    Summary

    Non functional video editor, virulent malware loader

    Pros

    This is a great software is completely free!!!

    Once you learn the program it's easy to do almost anything you want with it!

    Difficult to learn unless you find good tutorials or have time to read a lot of books.

    This free software is really different from others.

    Pros

    Several features

    Cons

    Difficult to learn
    Not actually free

    Even though the TITLE is "Free Video Editor," it's not actually free. After a little while it will tell you a trial period is up and you must purchase the software.

    "Excellent video editor and converter."

    September 9, 2014  |   By One7even

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.2.0.310

    Pros

    Spent the last couple of hours trying to find a video editor that would do a job I wanted it to do. Then I came across this one, read others' reviews and the usual "avoid!!1 malware!! trojan!!!" whiny crap.

    This editor does what others failed to do. One of the features I was looking for was just to crop a video, make it have a box-like view and got it done. Clicked on "convert" and it did just that without losing any quality of the video. It also has drop down list to select quality, or convert video to different formats if you wish.

    VSDC also has a Dreamweaver/Flash-like right side properties panel that lets you adjust or tweak video speed, background colour, etc...nice!

    Easy to use as long as you take your time with it and get to know it first. It's not "install it and press 2 buttons and you're done" software, no (unless you're using it to convert video to different formats, that's easy peasy).

    Cons

    The cons for this software is that I'm hooked editing videos for the day, and I can't be bothered to cook myself some dinner tonight...pff!

    Summary

    Downloaded it directly from CNET's big green download button. Seriously, it's that big you can't miss it and it felt good clicking it.

    Installed fine with no malware/browser junk as long as I was aware of the installation. Simply uncheck the boxes and select "I do not accept" for any other software that's bundled and you're good to go without Antivirus or AntiMalware popping up going "Trojan detected...nah just kidding" and giving you a heart attack.

    "Most powerful free Video Editor Application!"

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.9.227

    Pros

    1. FREE
    2. Flexible and fully customizable user tools
    3. Rich features (cutting, rotating, splitting, add text information, texturing and animations,creating motion object with physics values data such as acceleration, velocity)
    4. A great community of supports providing constant update to the software

    Cons

    Don't know the software well enough to know the cons If there are yet

    It's a very powerful software for free. I don't like that it's complicated to find certain things for editing things as in fire... I now know, but it took a ton of searching just to find this.

    "More capabilities than I know what to do with"

    August 21, 2014  |   By KimTouch

    Version: VSDC Free Video Editor 2.1.9.227

    Pros

    Its amazing that software like this is free. If you are a graphic artist of any sort, this program can do everything. Its fun and very addictive! I'm not much of an video editor, but I've tried some things with it and it works well. I've heard that it's professional quality, which is amazing for a freeware.

    Cons

    Harder to use at first and not many default custom settings.

    Summary

    This free software is really different from others. But, it is much more convenient after the 2.1 update. It is really good for small to big projects. Even video editing, compositing, and a bunch of things fits onto this software.
