Free movie editing software - help needed
« on: September 14, 2016, 10:20:02 PM »
Can anyone help me?

I'm doing my Youtube channel in earnest and I would like someone to point me in the direction of some free, easy to use video editing software, that can get me started.

If anyone could recommend some software for a beginner, because I'm having to one shot things off my webcam and if I make a mistake late on in a shoot that's my whole video crapped.

DaVinci Resolve? Doesn't have anything in the way of special effects or whizzbang transforms, but if you want a decent linear video editor with Hollywood-level colour grading, you can't go far wrong.

Or just use Windows Movie Maker like everyone else on YouTube.

Very recent topic on this exact subject.

My recommendation of Videopad in there should do what you need, I reckon.
