    Video pad looks bad and lacks many features! You can put some transitions and put videos together but no fancy effects or nothing like that! Horrible experience overall!

    Hitfilm Express vs Adobe Premiere Pro opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Hitfilm Express is a great alternative to Adobe Premiere Pro.

    Express is good, but it's more freemium than "free". It's not a bad program! I'd just recommend searching for other free programs. This one isn't the best option.

    Pinnacle Studio vs Adobe Premiere Pro opinions
    Almost everyone thinks Pinnacle Studio is a great alternative to Adobe Premiere Pro.

    There's tons of stuff in this program. Their latest release offers video masking and they have better keyframing control than any of the others listed that I've used. It's powerful and there are lots of learning materials developed while you're learning to use it.
