Video editing software for a newbie

Posted on
  • I've got a whole load of family video clips that I wanted to slice and dice together, as well as some bike related content I've been thinking of posting of YT just as a side project.
    Looking to get a video editing software package that is:

    1. Free
    2. Easy to use
    3. Doesn't watermark or restrict the outputs

    I'm familiar-ish with Adobe so I'm used to that environment, but I know that comes with £££ attached.

  • I would recommend Davinci Resolve. It's free but doesn't have strange home user quirks and there are a lot of helpful videos on youtube to get you started.

  • If you have access to a Mac then iMovie is capable.

  • @sohi I was recommended that also, and by all accounts, it might fit the bill, though my mate said there might be a bit of a learning curve but I'm not looking to do anything complex at this point.

    @Howard I'm strictly PC, I have been hardwired since a wee lad to irrationally hate Mac

  • I know you say no cost, but Premiere Rush on the desktop was easier than I expected to do pretty much the same as you describe.
