Default Video editing group test

I was interested in the feature covering video editors in the current issue (issue 453) but I was disappointed that no comparisons were made between the charge for software and their free counterparts.


Web user has often recommended different free video editors, two recently reviewed were Shotcut and OBSstudio.


What I would like to know is how do the free ones compare to the paid for ones such as the recommended premiere elements?

Lol 600 views and still not a single comment!


Please somebody say something? ( obviously don't just say something)

Does anyone have any thoughts on Video editors, I like MS Movie Maker and am trying out Serif MoviePlus (both discontinued) I have dabbled with the free Shotcut but it is a steep learning curve for an old duffer.

Shame Microsoft discontinued Windows Live, and with it the Photo and Video editing that could be downloaded free.

As I recall, the video editing suite had good reviews in its day, and I used the Photo Viewing/Editing Suite quite a lot. Not all of us use expensive photo and/or video editing suites, and I think it was a great shame that Microsoft did not keep those suites updated.

But that's BUSINESS I suppose!

Thanks for the comment. As I understand it Premiere is very expensive and has a steep learning curve?


Someone did give me a copy of Premiere Elements, it installed fine but after the first run it came back as a blacklisted key! So I uninstalled it.

I too mourn the loss of MS MovieMaker, it is still available as a download but not from MS so you have to watch where it comes from. MS has not supported it since 2012 but it does still work fine on W10 and you can do a lot with it, I used it for most of my Youtube videos, the rendering is poor so it's best to put them through Handbrake after editing to reduce the file size.

It works fine on W7, downloaded from Download.com. As you say, you have to watch where you download it from, but I have used Download.com for years, on and off, and have had no problems so far.

Indeed a few months ago I did a google search for Moviemaker and I was amazed at how many 'spoof' links that came up offering what they described as MS moviemaker but was anything but, some were laden with adware and spyware plus many were advertised as free but were practically useless unless you paid for them. I wonder how many people who are not perhaps as 'au-fait' as those of us on this forum get conned into using them.

A search for Windows Live will give lots of Mail downloads, but very few Windows Live Essentials 2012 downloads - that is the one you want, and you can decide whether to download all the programs, or just the ones you want.

As I said, Download.com seem to be OK.
