The best free video editing software

Let’s start with the professional software that video editing experts and global studios use to create their stunning film projects.

DaVinci Resolve

It was used in color grading and editing for Avatar and Pirates of the Caribbean. It edited the superhero action movie Avengers: Infinity War, the fantastic drama The Martian, the Big Bang Theory series and many other things that are adored by millions of people around the world.

DaVinci Resolve is an editor for professionals looking for deep grading (color grading) and fine work with sound effects. Imagine having the standard tools of artists, sound engineers, and colorists digitized and incorporated into a program. This is how DaVinci Resolve came about. He alone can cover all the needs of production, which is why he is so popular in Hollywood.

DaVinci Resolve features:
Working with objects. The tracking feature keeps a racing car or Spider-Man in focus at all times. You can also apply effects to a moving object without affecting other areas of the image. For example, on the side of a mountain at sunset, you can create a solar gradient effect. In this case, the person running down the slope will not change.
Fusion. Do you need three-dimensional effects – explosions, changing the physical properties of objects, transforming cinematic reality, and in general any spectacular animation? Download Resolve. Also, thanks to Fusion, you can clean up small flaws in the recording or completely remove unnecessary objects from the frame.
Batch processing and parallel collaboration. The whole team can work in the program, and at the same time. One deals with sound, the second with images. When all the materials are ready, the clips can be processed in a batch.


The finished video can be output in any popular format, as well as prepare a tape in the DCP package for cinemas. There is a free version: it weighs 2.5 GB, requires a powerful video card, or better than two, so that the first displays the picture on the screen, and the second calculates the entire video sequence. You will also have to suffer over management – the interface is very confusing. But the manual is not always enough – some functions are missing in the instructions, there are no descriptions for them.

DaVinci Resolve will work on any OS, but how much is required to purchase the full version is unclear. The site does not indicate the cost of the license. With such questions, the developer directs the user to an authorized dealer, who also needs to be found.


It works on all popular operating systems and is open source, so those who like to delve into the settings can organize the system for themselves. The FFmpeg library linked to Shotcut contains hundreds of audio and video formats that can be installed in the editor and used for conversion.

The program can capture screen and streaming video, record you on a webcam and save the voice recording in the desired format. The set of functions for editing a video is standard here: you can adjust color correction, crop a picture, remove unnecessary fragments from a clip. When you add text – for subtitles or for a screensaver – it can be made voluminous.
