VSDC Video Editor Reviews

Not recommended for large-scale editing projects.

If you want to slap some music on a still slideshow of your summer vacation, this'll probably do what you need. In my case, it didn't do what I needed at all. I've been looking for an alternative to what I was using to do high-resolution gameplay footage edits, and to be able to scrub through the video timeline to sync, edit, or add in both music and voice-overs. This thing crashed on first use for me. Haven't tried to mess with it since.

i been using this program for years and it works a whole lot better than windows movie maker. the best part is that its free and does not take a lot of space on the computer. it can place the image anywhere i want and it has many things to help make it better. i would highly recommend this to many people.

It's okay. I use it to make fairly simple video edits and it does what I need it to do for the most part. However, the UI isn't very user-friendly and the program can be slow at times. Previewing a video at more than the original speed can make it very laggy. You can't have more than one object on the same line, so if you are making more complicated edits, you'd have to scroll through the editor a lot to find the object you want to edit. Overall, it's not ideal for editing large or complicated videos, otherwise it's decent.

A good solution for advanced video editing

I've been using VSDC Free Video Editor since version 3.3.5. (together with Sony Vegas and GoPro Studio) and I should acknowledge that this free editor is worth trying as a good alternative to commercial projects. It's strong point is its advanced tookit elaborated to fulfill the majority of editing tasks; its's weak point is a lack of 100% stability.

Not bad, but...

It's preview capabilities (or lack thereof) are horrible at best. It literally uses what looks like windows media player in order to render and preview your video, this leads to slow rendering, and misplaced audio, causing you to either not be able to effectively change video positioning based on sound (like for an intro), or causing other unforeseeable problems when you go to render your finished product. There've been a number of times where I though I was finished with editing (after 6 hours, mind you), only to have to start over because the software didn't show me a problem that would have been caught in other editors.

The latest project I'm working on, demands strict editing, and unfortunately, between the insanely long render times, and the lack of power behind the previewer, I've had enough, and have decided to try to find another editor entirely that doesn't have these issues.

The best video editing software

I'm enjoying my experience with VSDC. It hasn't got any bundleware as it's specified in tags. The features are complete and the editor is very intuitive, it supports all popular formats, and in the latest version, export 4k videos is available. In my opinion, it's one of the best editing options among freeware.
