Do you want the best, or the cheapest? You can’t have both. If you are a video production company, I’m surprised you’re asking this kind off question. An adobe subscription for photoshop, premiere, after effects, audition and the rest would be a good investment for a business – as most of the thing we do. we could do on adobe products alone – although we have quite a few others. we use. I would not wish to NOT have adobe. Clients rarely feel comfortable with anything cheap in the video line – anyone turning up with consumer kit is a good example. Ok for home video people, but just not really business like.

My favourite – Adobe Premiere simply because while it is NOT cheap and a subscription model, the package has thing I use every single day.
Have a look at the Blackmagic designs free editor – I don’t like it to be honest, but that’s because I’ve been using another product for a very long time and change is painful. Frankly, the cheap ones I cannot recommend because they’re designed for home movie, home user styled editing – not business. So much depends on your equipment too, of course. Adobe likes you to have good video processing capability in the machine, and on a PC, you get the option for onboard processing power. of the video card. If it cannot do these things, then your main processor has to – clogging up the system. What kind of video will you be editing? I mean are we talking proper cameras, maybe prores, or 1080HD, or 4K? If you don’t have a decent camera – full size, real lenses or DSLRs no real point spending too much on the editing side.
Frankly ‘best’ means very little if best = expensive camera, expensive, computer, expensive monitors, expensive audio capability and expensive everything. Something used everyday isn’t expensive overall is it? Unless you provide details I can’t advise further. Like asking what the best car is? I doubt there is a sensible answer. Best car under $X, or best car for going to the shops once a week, or best car for off road ……. see the problem. They’re all cars. Same with video. Best for what?
I like Premiere – but it sucks at some things. Audio editing is basic, so you use an audio editor and do a bit of in out!

I’m really confused now. I’ve spent some time on your website and I see pro grade equipment, used very competently, with a large client base, with decent audio and most of all – LOTS of evidence of competence in editing already – so I just don’t see the point of this topic in this forum, which is devoted to the more amateur, beginner end of the market, unlike some of the pro forums. Even then, your editing skills seem pretty advanced already, so why are you asking about the ‘best but cheap’ video editing? Something is clearly very wrong here. Why would any company with a website and video show reel like yours, which demonstrates what you already can do, ask such beginner level questions? I suspect something very odd is happening here, and it’s either some kind of marketing ploy, or something more dark.

Here, I can also do my bit and add a cool service for free video editing free VE. I have been using it for about a month now, I really like it, a novelty of its kind! I have tried a lot before – this is optimal, an excellent set of tools, convenient.

Look, video editing software come with steep learning curves. I’m satisfied with the results of vsdc pro, but I know that sooner or later, i’ll have to make the transition to adobe products.
consider ur need and choose a product accordingly.

DaVinci is pretty cool, I think.

They joined, asked a stupid question when clearly their business already knew a great deal about editing – then never came back since the first post a year ago. Cheap advertising and SEO exposure for the business. Sneaky and snide practice.

You may try out DaVinci Resolve 16. As far I know, it is the most advanced and versatile free editing software. For more information, you can go to:
Davinci Resolve 16 Review for more information.
But if you need some quick video edits to make some short home videos or slideshows, Openshot and Windows Movie Maker are decent options.

If just want to get your work done, there is so much software off the shelf. However, if you want to remain contemporary, compete with your competition all the time, you need software that is modern and backed by huge resources. Among them, Adobe Premiere and Da Vinci Resolve stand apart. You will never be out of the market with them. You can fall back to support from a huge resource base out there.

Although you can mention many free options, most of them end up being useless. They usually offer very limited functionality, which is usually unable to generate properly edited videos. And as soon as you assume that you have fortunately stumbled upon a model with impressive functionalities, you suddenly discover that you are permanently blocked by watermarks and others. Then, to make matters worse, they probably added too annoying ads.
I suggest never try out a paid one easily until you’re satisfied with its performance, in this regard, the completely free MiniTool MovieMaker is a recommendation.
