The Best Video Editing Software for YouTube

The Best Video Editing Software for YouTube

There are countless video editing applications out there, but they’re not all created equal. It can be difficult to know which application to use, as so many of them have pretty similar features and functions. Ultimately, you need an application that will make it easy for you to create videos and movies with stunning effects, filters, transitions, and titles that really grab your audience’s attention and make them want to watch your next video or see what’s in your store . . . You need the best video editing software for YouTube!

Top 5 Affordable Alternatives
If you don’t already have access to editing software and can’t afford Adobe Premier, don’t panic. There are plenty of affordable alternatives that will help you make your videos shine (and win over any clients). While Apple iMovie is a powerful option, it’s not available on PC. We recommend trying Final Cut Pro X. For Mac users, HitFilm Express comes highly recommended by leading video professionals. And if you’re comfortable with Linux, check out Lightworks (although note that as of now there are few features that differentiate it from freeware offerings).

OpenShot
A multi-track video editor with a large community of developers and content creators who contribute useful features to make OpenShot even better. The software is free and open-source and available on Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS as well as many other operating systems. It is designed to be flexible with speed in mind so it can easily become your go-to editor for simple projects or more complex ones. Most importantly you can use OpenShot without any kind of watermark or further editing making it an easy program to start out with or turn into a professional one once you’ve learned all its tricks.

Cinellera
Whether you’re using a desktop or mobile, Cinellera has solid editing capabilities that easily match its competitors. It might be slightly heavier than other options out there, but there are also some excellent tutorials and custom settings to help you learn how to use it. Where it truly shines is in your ability to tweak video quality, resolution, framerate, and so on? You have access to six different levels of play speed which can be customized to fit your own personal preferences and working habits best.

Shotcut
A powerful video editor to help you create awesome videos with ease. With a streamlined interface, Shotcut gives you everything you need to edit your videos and have them up on your channel in minutes. An editing and rendering tool that provides clean results, and lets you add fun captions and filters, plus it comes with a free tech support team that is available 24/7. Shotcut offers three distinct paid plans starting at $9 per month so it’s definitely worth giving a try before going all-in with one of the more expensive options on our list.

Lightworks
If you need to trim some fat off of your video, Avidemux is a good option. This free open-source editor has all of Avidemux’s basic editing tools, and with a bit of tinkering, you can also control basics like white balance and color effect. It does not have support for working with 360-degree video yet, but it is still worth a look if you want something simple.

Avidemux
We’re big fans of Avidemux. As far as free video editing software goes, it’s one of a few programs that we can recommend without hesitation. The program is highly customizable and contains thousands of different effects, filters, and transitions to give your videos an extra boost (no pun intended). When we reviewed it, we were impressed by its huge number of features: image stabilization and noise reduction both work extremely well, better than in similar programs.
