We compiled a list of our favourite free video editing software.

Video editing software can be incredibly expensive, and it can be extremely time-consuming to find the right one that works for you. But, it really doesn't have to be expensive or time-consuming. There are so many free video editing software platforms out there that can match that of paid video editing software.

To help you all out we have comprised a list of the best free video editing software out there.

  • Why wouldn't you suggest Lightworks?! Open source and more movies and TV has been cut on it than anything but possibly AVID (who also offer a free version!)

  • LightWorks is not open source, though it's quite affordable. There was a time when it was the bee's knees of editing, but that torch has passed to Avid MC now.

    Today's big up and comer is Resolve, with HitFilm gaining some pro-oriented features like AAF import/export soon.

    • Ah fair enough - it was on their roadmap to do, but they never seem to have actually done it. It certainly has a very usable free tier, at least!

      And considering what I've paid Avid over the years, it's great to see the free tier out-classes some of what I used to pay a fortune for back in the day!

      I knew some of the HitFilm guys back when it was FXHome, showed a lot of promise so that's good to hear.
