Free/Open-source Video Editing Software

Filed under

A software application which handles the editing of video sequences on a computer is called video editing software. It can also handle limited editing of the audio clips which accompany the video or at least the ability to sync the audio with the video.

Image editing software typically shows one image on a large area on the screen and a view of the directory. To hold many files in the directory, it is possible to zoom out, so that a single file only covers one pixel-line in the editor, or even less, for rough cutting. A play button lets the software automatically advance to the next image, thus playing the video. Like slide show editing software that comes with a lot of image file format decoders, video editing software comes with plenty of video codecs.

Some of the best video editing software are quite expensive, like Adobe Premiere and Apple's Final Cut Pro. However, thanks to these valuable free/open-source video editing software applications, you don’t have to empty your wallet.
