Whether you consider yourself an amateur or a pro in terms of video editing, there are a ton of options when it comes to choosing the right tools for the job. You can pony up for a full featured application or go for one of the free options. These won't cost you anything as far as money is concerned, but might set you back when you consider the features you're missing out on. Check out Tom's Guide's '12 Video Editors for Your PC' to help you decide which application is right for you.
Even before faster internet connections made video a popular online media, budding directors relied on their computers to turn boring home videos into relatively polished and entertaining short movies. The video editing tools we feature here range from the most simple, incapable of nothing more than simple cut transitions and basic titles, to more full-featured options that in the right hands can give professional movie editors a run for their money.
Most of the tools in the following list are free. However, in this case, you really do get what you pay for in terms of capability and user-friendliness. We excluded very expensive video editing software like the full version of Adobe Premiere and Final Cut Pro. Yet the paid options we're featuring do justify the money you'd spend on them.
