I have discovered what may just be the best free video editor…
It’s called ‘Lightworks’ and it’s a very impressive piece of kit, especially as the basic version is completely free to use.
An indication of its pedigree is that the pro version has been used to edit big-name movies, including ‘The King’s Speech’ and ‘Road to Perdition’.
As you may expect for such a powerful beast, it will take you some time to master it, but – if you want access to the advanced features it offers – it’s well worth the effort.
Lightworks describes itself as ‘the professional video editor for everyone’ and, from what I have seen so far, I think it warrants that title.
If you’re used to other free video editors, you are likely to find the interface a little alien, but the software allows you to arrange the various controls and windows to create something that suits your way of working.
I would not recommend Lightworks for simple editing tasks, but it’s well worth a look if you want to go far beyond what other free editors can do for you.
