Free video editing software and Movie Maker to edit videos and movies

If you've caught the video editing bug but don't find the right application for beginners, try VideoPad Video Editor.

This is probably the best video editing tool to take your first steps in the world of multimedia video editing. It's simple, easy to use, and though more advanced users will definitely find it too basic, it's just perfect for anyone starting to play around with video compositions.

VideoPad Video Editor features a complete interface very much in the style of professional editors, with important elements such as a double built-in screen – one to preview selected clips, the other one to preview the complete sequence - and a time line for both the video and the audio tracks. The program also includes a few video effects (mainly regarding light, color and text snippets) and also transitions, though sadly only three of them. You can also add still images to your composition, either a blank screen or an image.

When you finish your project, simply click the "Create Movie" button on the interface and you'll be able to export it to a variety of formats. The good thing about VideoPad Video Editor is that it includes a bunch of exporting presets, depending on the platform you're producing the video for: PC, Mac, portable device, mobile phone, etc.

Also, if you get lost at any moment, don't worry: VideoPad Video Editor includes a through Help section where you'll find an answer to all your video editing queries.

VideoPad Video Editor may be quite simple at first sight, but it's a great choice for video editing beginners. NCH Software offers many other programs, on their website you will find further information about their products. If you are looking for alternatives, we recommend you to try Free Video Editor or Videopad Video Editor.
