Best Free Video Editors: Windows, Mac, and Linux!

These free video editing programs are very powerful.
Most of them will work on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

A lot of people pay for expensive video editing software and then:
a) use it for simple video tasks, and/or
b) use it once or twice before it becomes obsolete

Here are a few of the best free video editing programs available:

Of the 5 programs listed, Blender is the most capable and most powerful video editor. It can do everything the others can plus a lot more. It requires a lot of learning, and I recommend having some prior experience video editing before trying to use it.

Avidemux is useful for certain tasks and can do them quickly and simply, including video trans-coding, adjusting color, cropping, adding subtitles/logos/watermarks, applying various effects and much more.

Openshot is a very user friendly video editor. The interface is intuitive. Almost everything is drag a drop. It has a similar layout as Movie Maker, but includes a lot more features. (Coming Soon on Windows and Mac)

Movie Maker
Windows Live Movie Maker is a free program that sometimes comes pre-installed with windows or it can be downloaded from Microsoft. It is good for basic video tasks, and is very easy to use.

A great tool for photographers and those wanting to make videos out of still shot images. Its big advantages are speed and ease of use. You can crop and a custom pan/zoom 100 images in 5 minutes, a task that could take several hours using other video editors.
