Top 3 Best FREE Video Editing Software (2018-2019)



what's up everybody this is Krakow to welcome back to a new video so in this video I'm going to go ahead and show you guys the top three best video editing software's as of 2016 that you guys can use that are completely free now a lot of you guys been telling me to do a top 5 but I realized that top 5 is very hard to do because there's a lot of free ones that are very bad a lot of these video editing software's contain watermarks so I narrowed it down to the top 3 best free video editing software's with no watermarks and that are very good so these softwares you guys can use for color grading and doing all cool stuff and effects so let's get started coming at number 3 of the list we have a program called shot cut Video Editor now shotgun Video Editor comes both in Microsoft Windows and Mac and it's a very good beginner video editing software if you guys are starting into YouTube or you guys are doing acoustic you guys are making music whatever it is it can basically edit anything so I'm going to go ahead and give you guys a recap of how to works when you open up shot cut you just click on timeline and make sure you have the timeline opened up and active next you don't want to click here where it says display menu additional options click add video track and you also don't want to add an audio track now once you guys got that done to import your media files on the top left corner of the screen all you guys are going to do is click the Open File find your media for instance I'm going to pick this movie pup file and go ahead just drag it into the timeline now if you guys have a voiceover if you're doing game play or you guys are putting music you guys can even add your own audio file in there and drag it underneath the video and then you guys can go ahead and basically adjust the sound so you guys can fix the sound levels there's a bar you can just drag up and down to level it so it's not too loud but what I'm going to do right now is go ahead and show you guys some filters you could put in your video so if you click on the filters right here next to the timeline and you click the plus button you guys can see there's a lot of filters we're going to add in a fade in video and a fade out video so the video fades in and out when you're playing it and we're also going to add a color grading now the color grading what this is you basically can mess around the colors so if you're doing DSLR shots like I did you guys are recording real-life things or you have any movies in mind just go ahead and adjust color the saturation and basically make it look really nice as you guys can see right here and that's that and it makes you look pretty cool and you guys can do other visual effects I'm not going to get into every tiny details because I want to make this video too long but you guys get the idea you guys can look at tutorials all over YouTube if you want to know how to use a shock Video Editor now to export and render your file all you guys got to do is click the export button next to the filters right here and you're going to want to make sure you select the h.264 high profile option and on format make sure it's an mp4 this is very important so make sure you save it as an mp4 and you're going to want to adjust the resolution to 1920 by 1080 once you got that down on a frame rate per second depending on what you're recording with put 29.97 though and on scanner mode make sure it's on progressive it's going to be on interlace that first so change that to progressive and click on the codec tab next to video and make sure you up the GOP or the actually the quality from 60 to 70% and our rate control make sure it's on quality based variable bitrate what this does it basically gives the best bitrate for your video and makes it look nice when you're done just click on export file go ahead and click desktop put in the file name and click Save and you guys can see right here here's your vendor status on their jobs this is how much percentage is done and when you're done rendering it's going to say done now once you guys got that done you can go ahead and now open up the file and as you guys can see here it is the rendered out video with a color grading on there you guys can cut the track so you guys can do whatever you guys want and that's how it looks like alright and you can fade out there you go come in at number two of the list we have a program called DaVinci Resolve 12.5 this is also a very good Video Editor and the reason I like this is because it's very good and packed a lot more features in shot cut these are both good programs but when you guys go to the download page you're just gonna have to enter some fake information and then go ahead and click register and download now um when you guys download this it might be confusing at first but there's a bunch of tutorials on YouTube but again I'm going to go ahead and just give you guys a recap on how this works so it's going to be into a zip file if you guys wrong window you're going to see it's going to be a dot zip and to fix that to extract it you just right-click and click on extract DaVinci Resolve 12.5 and go inside that double-click the application install it like you would in any other program make sure you tick this box if you don't have the visual c++ installed and that's that and just let it install when it's open you guys can see the interface right here which is a pretty basic and it's pretty also advanced so we're going to go ahead and import a video you just drag it into right here you guys see four tabs right here you guys got these tabs and what we're going to now do is go ahead and drag this oops hold on go ahead click on edit and you guys want to go ahead and click right here and drag it into the timeline and you guys can see two separate tracks you have your video track and your audio track like I said I'm not going to get too much into detail with every feature but when you click on color like we did in the other program you can go ahead and adjust the way the colors look which is very awesome apart from that I'm going to show you guys on how you can also add text so if you're wondering how you can add text on to your videos it's super simple so when you click right here you're going to go ahead and click on library' right here and make sure that you guys go ahead and click on text drag the text up there and there you go now we can go ahead and adjust the text or says title just title it to whatever you guys want I'm going to go ahead and highlight it and put down 370z exhaust there you go of course you can adjust the text to your liking so if you guys want to go ahead and change the font you have all the fonts there and all that good stuff DaVinci is a very good program and the reason why I like it is because just like chakra video editor it's completely free you don't have any watermarks and the developers did a very good job on keeping it free and basically allowing the public to make videos because not all of us have money not all of us can afford sony vegas pro 13 and a lot of us want to start on simple but that's that so when you export your file you guys can go ahead and select Vimeo YouTube or you guys can now input your own custom settings and you guys can just follow what I'm doing on the screen and add it to our render queue once you guys got that done you just go ahead and start the render and you guys can see a video files rendering and that's that this is a good software video editor if you guys are really looking to getting into YouTube seriously go ahead and check that out now I'm going to go ahead and come to number one of the list coming out number one of the list we have what is called hitfilm express for hitfilm express for is a very very very good program for video editing now the reason why I like hitfilm for express is because it has all the features that you guys can use for visual effects editing and it's very similar to Sony Vegas Pro now when you're on like download page you just go ahead and create an account what you guys can do is use a disposable Ebola address like I did in the video so if you guys don't know there's a site called yo male where you guys can basically go ahead and use a disposable email so you guys don't have to enter your real information so when you click send me the download as you guys can see when I go on yo mail I'm going to go ahead and sign in just to a random account click check inbox you're going to see right here when i refresh it it's gonna say hitfilm com download Express for and you can download for Microsoft Windows or Mac whatever what you guys have it is a Exe file so you just go ahead let it download and run it and there you guys go hitfilm for express alright now coming into hitfilm for express the reason why I like this like I said earlier it has a lot of visual effects you guys can do if you look all over YouTube you guys have a Harry Potter visual effects you can make gun visual effects so if you guys are looking into real world editing and you guys want to go ahead and make awesome movies hit film for express is a very good program to start with now it's an imported file you go over here click import and go ahead and import your media file and basically I'm going to go ahead and import my audio track as well and what we're going to do next is jagan the mp4 to the timeline click yes there you go there's two separate tracks you guys can see video and audio right there so I'm going to go ahead and add in the color balance again like I did in the other two software's that we used earlier so go ahead and adjust the shadows now for this video I found out that negative 56 on a red balance negative 24 on a green balance negative 14 on a blue balance gives it a nice look on the right side you guys can see that before and after so when we play it here it is that's how it's going to look like now the cool part about hitfilm for express is that a you guys can do a lot of things like split a tractor here so I'm going to go ahead get to a slice tool we're go ahead and cut let's see zoom in a little bit more we're going to go ahead and cut the video right there get the little move tool and position it so apart from cutting lot stuff like I said you guys can do a lot of visual editing and there's a bunch of tutorials on YouTube on how to use film for express which will really get you into a program which is awesome so go ahead and play it you guys can see BAM we just cut the part of the audio track it looks nice good colors a good audio I just did now we can go ahead and do is now make a right click and make a composition shot if you guys on the line harmonica text I'm going to show you that right now alright so I'm going to go ahead and click on a text tool make a little rectangle and under the box we're going go ahead and type in some text I'm going to go ahead and type in Nissan oops 370z exhaust there you go now we're going to go ahead and adjust the text to one of my favorite fonts we're gonna go ahead and click here click text and select a different color I'm going to go ahead and click blue for this video example text I'm going to go ahead and select on American captain and you just saw you guys can position it right here there you go now you guys see here's the text now if you want to make it stand out more you guys can go ahead and go back to effects and type in drop shadow click on drop shadow and just basically drag it into the timeline and you guys are going to see a drop shadow on a text which makes the text pop out more which is pretty cool now that we got that done we're going to click on export go to mp4 make sure your settings just like mine and bam there

  1. If you are looking for an actually free editor, no registration, no sign-up, no email required…

    Open Shot and VSDC are great…just download the installer, run it, and then import your media and start editing without any annoying bs.

  2. About Davinci resolve, what every specialist forget to say is that when you use "Effect/library" like I did (I tried every possible effect to see what they do…), after some time there is a warning telling you that you won't have access to the library anymore since you have used the maximum of actions the free version permit you to do…and, of course you have two choices, quit or buy the 299$ version. I suppose that the expert only use the version a couple of minutes so they never get the warning…anyway…SCAM!

  3. can u please include a link for Hit film 4 express? I typed it and many webs came up…I am afraid to click in a wrong one and get virus. Thanks

  4. Starting a Youtube Channel? Subscribe to mine and I will Subscribe back to yours :)) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCS-DfYejPszRvOYGtOjBJXA?view_as=subscriber

  5. I downloaded short cut but cant figure out how to save it in a format i can upload to youtube better yet my own computer

  6. Mine is choppy when I finished editing it with ShotCut! Could anyone help me? I at first have not tried this settings, hopefully it will work now

  7. Shotcut: worst editing app
    DaVinci: the same
    Hitfilm:I'll try it now
    I think that sony should add installation in pc to ShareFactory..
    ShareFactory is only on ps4 and it is the best editting app and it is COMPLETELY FREE

  8. I found this very helpful. I don't care what year you recorded it. I just need to know how to do what I want to do so this is helpful for me
