VSDC Video Editor is one of the best freeware video editing software available on the market, perfect for anyone that wants to go ahead to a more advanced environment, closer to Adobe After Effects, but completely free and easier to use.
VSDC is indeed complete, including tools to realize quick slideshows in no time and a non-linear workflow that sees a project as an assembly of several independent Scenes, each collecting single clips or an entire group of them. Generate pieces of text, rolls, crawls, geometrical shapes you can edit on the Preview and correct your media with advanced color correction, color grading and tone curves. Gather full control on each clip metadata, volume and other advanced options, such as codec and speed. Unique is the way to add effects and transitions, which are special clips that you can manage just like other media, in time placement and length.
All these features come for free, but you can go with the PRO version to get double rendering and preview speed, enhanced resolution up to 1080p HD, visual masking and chroma key for green screen.
We definitely suggest VSDC Video Editor for who has already learnt the basis of video editing but wants to enter into a more professional workflow used on companies job. And this costs no money!
