Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Mar 20, 2015

Free Video Editor's snipping tools and millisecond counters make it easy to edit video and audio clips quickly and accurately. While advanced users may find it thin in options, others will appreciate its ease of use.

Pros

Linear layout: Free Video Editor's user interface places the audio spectral display beneath the preview window, with counters, player and edit controls, and other controls in linear layers for minimal visual clutter and maximum efficiency.

Edit tags: We could edit, set, and delete all tags or all auto tags from the Edit menu.

Shortcuts: Free Video Editor offers many customizable hotkeys, and not just the usual Play-Pause-Stop variety, but also useful commands, like Seek, Zoom Up and Down, and Edit Tags.

Cons

Balky drag-and-drop: On first use, we were unsuccessful in several attempts to drag and drop files into Free Video Editor from various locations and in several formats. After we loaded a video using Add Files, we were able to drag and drop.

Balky Help: We hoped clicking Learn how to use on the Help menu would open a tutorial or manual, but nothing happened.

Few options: Free Video Editor has few options. Many users won't see that as a problem, but those who want to customize audio or video performance have better choices in other freeware.

Bottom Line

Free Video Editor is a good choice for users who want to edit video quickly and efficiency. Amateur video producers may want to look at tools with more options, such as custom audio and video codecs.
