12 Video Editors for Your PC
Even before faster internet connections made video a popular online media, budding directors relied on their computers to turn boring home videos into relatively polished and entertaining short movies. The video editing tools we feature here range from the most simple, incapable of nothing more than simple cut transitions and basic titles, to more full-featured options that in the right hands can give professional movie editors a run for their money.
Most of the tools in the following list are free. However, in this case, you really do get what you pay for in terms of capability and user-friendliness. We excluded very expensive video editing software like the full version of Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. Yet the paid options we're featuring do justify the money you'd spend on them.
