Best Free Video Editing Softwares For PC

Editing videos are now very important and people are using video editors every day to edit their Insta shots or TikTok videos. So video editors are one of the important software which is used nowadays and in the near future.

  • Built-In Windows Editor
  • OpenShot
  • VSDC
  • Shotcut
  • DaVinci Resolve

So these are the 5 best free video editing software which are available with the above requirements. Let’s check about them now.

Built-In Windows Editor

So the first editor is the built-in windows video editor. So you’ll find this on all windows 10 and windows 11 laptops. So I’d say that this video editor is one of the easiest to learn and simplest to use. This can be used for various projects like making a slideshow or just combining two videos and adding some music at the back.

Built-In Windows Editor

They’ve many features, I’ll just show you some of them quickly. First of all, you can see the user interface, it’s extremely simple to use it works on drag and drop after. They have some features like adding text then adding music and filters. One thing which I really liked about the built-in windows editor is that it’ll render all of the videos extremely quickly. So even if your laptop isn’t that powerful this can render four to five-minute videos in about 30 seconds which is extremely good.

OpenShot Video Editor

The second video editor is OpenShot. So you can get this on mac or on windows and this is a perfect video editor for first-timers. You can see the user interface it’s extremely simple to use if someone is editing for the first time you really like this and one good thing about this editor is that even though it’s simple and easy to use. They haven’t compromised on any features. In fact, it has more features than the built-in windows editor.

OpenShot Video Editor

So I’ll quickly show you some of the features so as you can use them they have many effects after that you can add 3d titles. Then you can zoom in, zoom out to change the speed of videos. So if you’re a beginner and now you know to start editing I feel that an open shot is a perfect way to start.


The third editor is VSDC. So this is only available for windows but it’s quite a popular editor. So this has many features although it is a bit more complicated as compared to the previous two. It also support split-screen videos after they’ve color correction.


Then you can zoom in, zoom out & reverse a video. So this editor somewhere in between it’s not very basic like the windows built-in editor but also isn’t as complicated as the other ones which I’m soon gonna tell you.


The next one is a shortcut that is available on Windows, Mac, and Linux. So all of the Linux users out there you should definitely check this out. So again this has many features and also has many audio settings.


So you can mix tracks after that they also have many transitions then they have a drag and drop feature. So this is one thing which I really like because it saves a lot of time. After that, you can also export in many different formats and usually, you won’t see this in other editors.

DaVinci Resolve

The last and final video editor is DaVinci Resolve. So this is a professional video editor and so once I personally use to edit all of my videos and it’s the perfect video editor for all intensive video editing like making short films documentaries. So this is extremely similar to premiere pro which you find on mac but this is completely free to use. So over here you can see the user interface you have different sections for media than for editing then fusion.

DaVinci Resolve

So it’s just filled with many things and whatever you need for editing you’ll find all of that in here but using this does have some cons the first being that it’s extremely complicated to use so even though I’ve been using this for about six months now I haven’t learned half of the features and for someone using this.

For the first time it can be very intimidating so I’d say you first use something else and then move on to this and the second con is that a powerful laptop is required. So you can obviously download this on all laptops but usually, you should have 16Gb ram then a graphic card. So in general it does work best with a powerful laptop.

Wrapping Up

These were the five video editors and now I’ll quickly tell you which one you should use if you’re someone who wants to get into professional video editing. Then I feel that DaVinci is the way to go after that for a bit of intensive video editing not too basic but not too complicated.  Next VSDC is perfect and for basic video editing and for first-timers. You can try out OpenShot or the Built-In windows editor.
