Video Editing Software

Which Video Editing Software should be used?

This is definitely a common question for newbies who want to edit their video by themselves. Being a member in some DJI forum, I encounter with this topic many times. Therefore, today, I will list some video editing software for reference.

Free: DaVinci Resolve
DJI GO
GoPro Studio
iMovie
OpenShot
Shotcut
Windows Movie Maker

Paid Software:
Adobe Premiere Elements
Adobe Premiere Pro
Cyberlink PowerDirector
Final Cut Pro
MAGIX Vegas
Pinnacle Studio
ProDrenalin
Wondershare Filmora
Panotour

Here are some software that is mostly used. Hope that It will support you somehow.

I am also a Real Estate Video Editing provider. And most of our products are made with Adobe Premiere Pro. It works well with us and can meet all of our demands.

Nice change of pace. This is one of those topics that could get really big because there’s an endless number of ways to edit video according to the need and personal preferences. I know many of us also provide video as part of our services so it will be nice to hear how and learn some tips.

I haven’t tried any of the free ones except Windows Movie Maker and it does an okay job, but the resolution suffers and for some reason we have had some issues with the file type working across different computers. Our primary editing software is CyberLink PowerDirector ultimate. Very, very easy and excellent 4K quality.

Best free one is Audacity or Shotcut. They got great potential for you to explore as long as you are willing to spend time on them.
Paid for one: Joyoshare Video Cutter. Easy-to-use. Not re-encoding as long as you don’t convert the video format with it.

This is a good share. I think it is useful for many people. I have only used Windows Movie Maker and RecoveryTool Video Editor. These will be more suitable for beginners.

Amy, thank you so much for sharing such an amazing list!
I believe GoPro Studio is the most functional app among free ones, so every newbie video editor should master it.
If it comes to paid software, there is nothing better than Adobe Premiere Pro, it is an absolute favorite.
However, it can’t be said that one app can satisfy all the needs and be the ultimate decision for EVERY customer, so now I’m working on my custom video editing app (please, check this article out), I would like to take into consideration every request from my potential customer, so please, if you have any proposals regarding the features provided in video editing app, contact me. Thank you in advance!

For Mac, the best choice maybe Final Cut Pro; as a professional, I like Adobe Premiere Pro. For newbies, TunesKit AceMovi is the best video compiler

Hi @Antunes_Vitorino , welcome! I have been running Cyberlink PowerDirector 16 for a while now on the same perpetual license that I purchased almost 3 years ago. It is very easy to slice and apply transitions and it has a very good exposure and color filter to dial them in that doesn’t have 1,000 buttons. I have the Ultimate, but I don’t see anything in the comparison that I would miss.

thank you for your information, the software list you recommended is useful.
I find Something like this one - https://www.xp-pen.com/forum-1595.html
In that list you will find 18 programs with a short description and Pros & Cons for each one of them.
I use Blender, it’s an open source program, free to use and many good tutorials on YouTube.
The program is also used by professional moviemakers. It does the same or more as the apps you recommended above.
