Top 5 Video Editors for YouTube Creators

Ask any successful content creator, and they’ll tell you there’s no single best video editor for YouTube.

For some, the built-in YouTube Studio editor might be sufficient. It allows you to cut out unwanted pieces of footage, add music and text. If that’s all you need – great! Your search is over. However, if you want to use more sophisticated effects, transitions, and overlays, you’ll need a more powerful piece of software.

In this article, we’ll review 5 beginner-friendly video editors for YouTube that happen to be completely free.

Let’s dive right in.

VSDC – free video editor for YouTube creators on PC

VSDC is a free video editor for Windows PC. It’s lightweight, intuitive, and feature-rich. VSDC requires 2GB RAM, and its installation file is less than 80 Mb, so it’s a great option for those struggling to find software with low system requirements.

Although the program interface might seem tricky at first, there’s plenty of tutorials both in text and video format, so you’ll quickly get the hang of it.

VSDC

One of the biggest advantages of VSDC is the ability to easily open videos in any format, regardless of the recording device. Furthermore, this editor handles 120fps and allows you to export footage using the newest H.265/HEVC codec (if you haven’t heard of it, H.265 is designed to preserve high video quality after maximum file compression). For these reasons, VSDC is officially recommended by the GoPro team and a few popular drone YouTubers, including Quadcopter 101.

Now, speaking of the feature set, VSDC brings editing tools some paid programs wouldn’t be ashamed of. Apart from the basic montage toolset, color correction, and animated text, there’s an array of effects you can apply to your footage and customize. For example, you'll be able to make the picture-in-picture, split-screen, gradual zoom, video-in-text, news ticker, and plenty of other effects commonly used for YouTube videos.

Once you’ve finished your project, you can upload it directly to your YouTube channel without having to save the video to your PC first. If you want to save the video for other social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Vimeo, there are pre-configured export profiles that will apply the required parameters to your video.

Finally, VSDC boasts a powerful screen recorder you can access right from the program interface, which is a big advantage. The recorder lets you use several capturing devices simultaneously, grab external video via HDMI, and record 2D and 3D games in high quality.

iMovie – free video editor for Mac

iMovie makes an excellent free video editor for YouTube creators using Mac computers or iPads, especially at the beginning of the blogging journey. As a matter of fact, even after becoming relatively popular, many YouTubers continue using iMovie for editing, according to the Influencer Equipment database. Because why not? It’s free, it delivers great results, and it’s pre-installed on most Apple devices by default.

If you think you must only use a fancy expensive piece of video editing software to stand out on YouTube, you're wrong. What really matters is your content quality, creativity, and consistency.

iMovie

iMovie has a minimalistic intuitive interface, and most operations are performed via a simple drag-n-drop motion. Known for being meticulous about design, Apple made sure to create an extended library featuring backdrop themes and title templates you can use in a video. Templates come in especially handy if you're working on a series of videos or slideshows and you want to apply the same style to every episode.

Just like VSDC, iMovie allows you to remove a green or blue background from your footage. You can also add a soundtrack to your video, fine-tune title animations, and use more than 200 different video effects including popular ones, like picture-in-picture, slow motion, fast-forward, fade transitions, zoom, freeze frames, and others.

best iMovie

The best part about this video editor? Perhaps, the Apple product ecosystem. As a video creator, you can benefit from it in many ways. For example, you can use pre-uploaded royalty-free audio tracks, import songs from your iTunes, fetch any media file from your iCloud, or even start editing on your tablet and continue on your Mac or vice versa.

Kdenlive – free video editor for YouTubers on Linux

Kdenlive is a free open-source video editor. For many Linux users, it’s a go-to option because compared to many other open-source video editors, it’s very lightweight, rather stable, and it works well with 4K footage (of course, given that you have a decent CPU).

For beginners and intermediate-level users, Kdenlive has everything to put a video together and make it look more aesthetic. The program allows you to use multiple video and audio tracks, overlay files, add titles, transitions, and custom effects.

Kdenlive

Two things make Kdenlive stand out, compared to many other video editors: proxies and ripple editing. Proxies or “proxy files” are file copies reduced in size and quality that allow you to speed up previewing and editing. This means that the software “replaces” the original files with the copies to save resources during the preview, and uses the original files during export, so there’s no impact on the resulting project quality.

The Ripple delete feature allows you to cut out footage from multiple layers simultaneously and merge the remaining pieces within a single Ctrl+X click.

Kdenlive editor Linux

Although Kdenlive is cross-platform software, its Windows solution has received a significant amount of criticism, and therefore, our recommendation is addressed to Linux users only.

Davinci Resolve – professional color grading for PC, Mac, and Linux

Davinci Resolve is a free cross-platform video editor for those who want to achieve Hollywood-level video post-production. Resolve has a premium version (that comes with a hefty price tag!), but it targets professional filmmakers, so for the sake of this review, it’s irrelevant.

Recommended by indie filmmakers and professional videographers alike, Resolve can be a great video editor for YouTube creators who have a more serious approach to color grading. For example, if your long-term goal is to do video editing for a living, Davinci Resolve is definitely worth your attention. It will help you achieve breathtaking results, but to benefit from it, you need to understand the color theory and be passionate about it enough to invest time into this software.

Davinci Resolve

Even those with experience may expect a steep learning curve because the program interface is rather overwhelming. Luckily, there are dozens of tutorials and even online courses available for those willing to master Davinci Resolve.

The basic editing toolset of Davinci includes a multi-track timeline, convenient cutting and trimming tools, audio editing features, lots of transition effects, speed settings, and titles. Truth be told, if you work with large volumes of footage and you need to trim a lot, Resolve is incomparably convenient. It brings a real-time timeline zooming feature that guarantees a more precise cut, and a long list of hotkeys you can use when applying repetitive actions. At the export level, the software allows you to upload your project directly to YouTube (or Vimeo) in 1080p resolution.

Davinci Resolve editor

One thing to be aware of before you jump to download the installation file is the system requirements which can be a dealbreaker for low-end computer owners. Your machine must have at least 8GB of system RAM, at least 4GB of graphics RAM, and enough storage space. The installation file alone weighs 780MB.

Download Davinci Resolve from the official website

 

Lightworks

Like Davinci Resolve, Lightworks is a professional league player that has been in the market since 1989. This tool is a pioneer in the world of non-linear video editing, and according to the developer’s website, this software has brought multiple Oscar-winning Hollywood movies to life.

Lightworks runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and brings 3 subscription plans: Free, Create ($9,99 per month), and Pro ($23 per month). For an average user, the free plan has everything to create a good-looking video: its key limitation is the maximum 720p export resolution.

Lightworks

The program brings a clean interface including a multi-track timeline (although you need to add new video tracks manually each time) and three dedicated tabs for video editing, audio editing, and visual effects. Additionally, the main screen includes a file log and a source preview window that allows you to preview files before adding them to the scene. What’s really convenient about it is the ability to add the desired piece of the footage directly to the timeline, already cut out from the source file.

The VFX tab includes all the popular visual effects and a vast selection of color grading tools. You also get a convenient audio editing toolset with keyframes, a set of templates for titles and transitions, cloud storage access, and the local backup feature.

Lightworks

Now, if you’re switching from tools like Movie Maker or iMovie, getting started with Lightworks might be slightly challenging. Luckily, you can find a plethora of helpful video tutorials on YouTube as well as beginner’s guides on the official website. Lightworks is compatible with all the common video formats and employs proxy files to go easy on your computer. The biggest drawback of the free version appears to be a 720p export limitation. However, given that many watch YouTube videos on their smartphones, it doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker.

Why you should choose free video editors for YouTube over paid solutions

You probably want to know what video editing software most YouTubers use; however, the answer might not be helpful if you’re on a budget. The most frequently mentioned software is Adobe Premiere (starts at $19.99/mo, that is if you purchase an annual subscription). The second most common answer is Final Cut Pro (Mac only, one-time $299 payment) and Sony Vegas (Windows only, starts at $400).

But guess what? A lot of those bloggers you’re following on YouTube started their careers as a hobby using free video editors. In fact, many still use freeware for their channels, and that's noteworthy. Why? Because there’s no correlation between the price tag of the software you’re using and the success of your channel.

There's no need to break your piggy bank to purchase a video editor for your brand-new YouTube channel. No matter how much your software costs, no amount of post-production can turn low-quality footage into a masterpiece. Focus on production instead. If you're willing to invest, consider upgrading your hardware! A decent source of light and a microphone are already half the battle, as you probably won't have to sweat the color balance and the audio settings afterward.

What makes a good video editor for YouTube beginners anyway?

It all comes down to your skills and needs. For instance, if you're planning to publish game walkthroughs, you might need a built-in screen recorder (VSDC and Lightworks have it). If reaction videos are your thing, look for an intuitive picture-in-picture tool. If you tend to shoot long pieces before uploading them to the editor, make sure the splitting tool is intuitive.

Bottom line? You might want to try at least a couple of video editors before making the final decision. The tools we’ve included in the list are reliable and genuinely free – meaning there will be no watermarks or other unpleasant surprises after export. For someone who’s getting started, this should be enough to get that YouTube channel rolling with content. You can always switch between tools as you grow!

How to Use Time Remapping in VSDC

If you’re familiar with the object movement feature available in VSDC, you’ll be excited to learn about time remapping. Time remapping allows you to slow down, speed up, or reverse object movement in a selected part of its movement path. As a result, you’ll be able to create really impressive effects, like this one:

The new feature is available in VSDC Pro starting version 6.9. Below, we’ll show you how it works.

 

How to use time remapping in VSDC

Currently, time remapping can only be applied to moving objects. This includes images, shapes, titles, icons, or any other 3rd-party objects added to the scene. Here is how to get started.

 

Create a moving object

To make an object move in a video, you need to add it to the scene, double-click it, and hit the movement icon from the left-side menu. Then place the cursor where the movement destination is and adjust the vector.

The object movement feature is newbie-friendly and straightforward, but if you’re unfamiliar with it, we have a detailed guide for you.

 

Open the time remapping graph

Once you’ve created the movement path, right mouse-click the movement layer on the timeline and select Properties. In the Properties window, find Time remapping, and hit the 3-dot icon to access the graph.

How to access the remapping graph

This graph illustrates object movement over time, and the two axes define two different aspects of it. The X axis reflects the duration of the movement effect: the left part of the timeline is the beginning of it, and the right part is the end. The Y axis reflects the object’s movement path: the bottom part of the timeline is the beginning of the path, and the top part is the end.

By modifying the graph, you can modify the object movement progress. For example, you can make the object go slower or faster through certain parts of the path, or even send it in the opposite direction. All it takes is a couple of keyframes placed in the right spots! Let’s see how you can create them.

 

Understanding keyframes and the Y axis

Keyframes are control points that allow you to break the graph – and therefore, the movement path – into sections so that you can work with each section independently. You can create keyframes manually by double-clicking the graph or use the templates from the menu. For this tutorial, we’ll use the former option.

Notice that the first keyframe (Y:0) indicates the initial object position on the path. The last keyframe (Y:100) is the end of the path.

As long as the graph is continuously ascending from 0 to 100, the object will be moving from point A to point B following the movement vector you created. We call it the original, unmodified time flow.

Now, let’s see what happens when we change the graph.

We’ve already mentioned that the Y axis indicates the time flow for the object. Below is a simple illustration of how you can reverse it. Suppose you want the object to go halfway through the movement vector and then go back to the initial point, at the same speed. All you need to do is create a keyframe in the middle of the graph and drag the last keyframe from 100 to 0.

Let’s break it down. The object was moving along the movement path up to the breaking point – the keyframe we created. Then, instead of continuing the movement, it started heading back because instead of continuing to ascend, the second part of the graph descends back to Y:0 which indicated the initial point on the movement path for the object. In other words, according to the Y axis, the start and the end of the movement path became the same.

Here is another way to look at it. If the angle between two subsequent keyframes is greater than zero degrees, the object time flow in this section goes in the original direction. However, if the angle between two subsequent frames is less than 0 degrees, the object time flow goes in the reversed direction.

The explanation of the Y axis in the time remapping graph

For example, if you apply the ZigZag template from the template menu, you’ll get an object bouncing between the sides of the scene.

Note that the movement effect will continue for as long as the object is present in the video.

 

Understanding the X axis

Now that you have an idea of the time direction for the object, let’s go back to the drawing board and see how you can tweak movement speed at any given point in time.

Suppose you want the object to reach the middle of the way, slow down for a second, and continue at a slightly higher speed. To achieve that, place a keyframe one second past half the graph and drag it down to make that segment of the graph flatter. Here is what the result will look like:

Here is how it works. By adding a keyframe, you’ve created a new section on the graph, and by dragging the keyframe down you’ve decreased the movement speed for that section.

Suppose you want the object to briefly speed up in the middle of the path and then go back to normal speed for the rest of the way. That’s easy! Drag the new keyframe up to the desired angle and mirror its position with the central keyframe to create identical angles on the graph.

The takeaway from these two examples? The angle between two subsequent keyframes defines object movement speed. The greater the angle, the higher the movement speed is; the lower the angle, the lower the speed is.

The explanation of the X axis in the time remapping graph

Congratulations! By now, you should have a good understanding of how time remapping works for a single movement vector animation. However, in many cases, the object movement path contains two vectors or more. Let’s see how the time remapping graph will look in these cases, and how you should approach it.

 

Time remapping for multi-vector movement path

If you’ve created a movement path consisting of multiple vectors, on the time remapping graph, each vector will be represented by a light-gray rectangle. The purpose of these rectangles is to help you visualize the position of each vector in time and create keyframes accordingly.

Time remapping graph for a multi-vector movement path

The general approach to multi-vector movement paths is no different from what we’ve described above. However, there’s one tricky part you should keep in mind. If you decide to change any vector position in the scene, the gray rectangles will shift accordingly. The tricky part is that if you’ve already created keyframes on the graph based on those movement vectors, you’ll have to manually shift them too.

Essentially, you need to remember that keyframes aren’t attached to movement vectors. So if you want the object to move through a certain vector with a certain speed, and you’re moving that vector around, make sure to double-check the keyframes.

 

Have full control of object animation with remapping

Time remapping is a powerful tool, and we’re excited to introduce it in the new version of VSDC. Although we’ve gone through every step of applying this feature, there’s much more to discover. For instance, you can incorporate object rotation, transition effects, and even motion tracking.

How to Make Transitions Smoother Using Bezier Curves

Bezier curves have many uses in video editing, one of which we already explored in our quick guide to drawing shapes. This time, we’ll show you how to use Bezier curves in so-called “easing curves” – the tool allowing you to control how long it takes a transition to kick in or fade out.

Please note that editing transitions along Bezier curves is only available in the Pro version of VSDC.

Step 1: Import your footage and add a transition

Making smooth transitions with the Bezier curve is a simple process. First, import your video file to the project. If you already have a blank project opened, you can just drag the video file onto the timeline. Next, add a transition. For this tutorial, we will be using the Wipe transition, but you can choose any of the ones available in the Templates window.

Step 2: Apply transition curve template

Right-click on the transition effect to open the Properties window. For our example, we’ll be working with Transition levels – the parameter setting the speed of the transition. Right-click on the tiny Parameter change icon next to Transition levels and hover over Templates. Then select “Quad Out.”

 

How to use bezier curves

There are over a dozen options available in the menu; however, for our example, we need to use a template ending with “Out” because the transition is at the end of the video. Had we placed the transition at the beginning of the video, we would have selected a template ending with “In.”

Step 3: Configure Bezier curve

Once you apply the template, the timeline window will display a graph. The curve on the graph is based on the Transition level values, therefore, by changing this curve, you will be adjusting the pace of the transition.

To get started, find the two control points: one at the beginning of the graph and one at the end of it. These are called “keyframes.” Click on either of the keyframes, and you’ll see a vector. Grab the end of the vector and drag it around: both the length and the angle of the vector change the curve and, thus, the pace of the transition.

 

To adjust the transition at any specific moment, you can create additional keyframes by double-clicking on the graph. The smoother the curve is, the smoother the transition. The opposite is true: if you create a sharp curve, the pace of the transition will spike accordingly.

Create custom video effects using Bezier curves

Customizing transitions with Bezier curves is easy. You can apply them to any parameter that includes values changing along a curve and achieve outstanding video effects. Furthermore, after creating your ideal transition, you can save it as a template and use it later. Check out a quick tutorial on how to do it.

How to Record Minecraft Gameplay

Do you want to record Minecraft gameplay for your YouTube channel? Maybe you want to capture your speedrun, or just make a let’s play? This means that in addition to the screen, you might also need to record your webcam or microphone — or even both at the same time.

To help you out, we’ve put together a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it using the VSDC Screen Recorder. It’s a free screen recorder for Windows PC with a built-in game capturing mode that allows you to save footage in ultra-high resolution.

Without further ado, let’s dive right in.

 

Step 1. Launch VSDC Screen Recorder on your PC

After you’ve installed VSDC on your PC, you can launch it through the shortcut on your desktop. Once opened, you will see this window:

How to record minecraft

The interface is pretty simple and user-friendly, so you should have no trouble navigating it, even if you’re not tech-savvy. Before getting started, you’ll need to enable your recording devices. Let’s see how you can do it.

 

Step 2. Enable recording devices

If your webcam and/or microphone are external (not built-in), you’ll need to connect them to your PC first. After doing that, click the Enable sound button to enable microphone sound in your video, and hit Enable camera to record video from your webcam.

Keep in mind that if you choose to record your Minecraft gameplay using the Game capturing mode, it will be impossible to place the facecam over the game window. Instead, the webcam video will be recorded separately and you can add it to the video later (we’ll show you how to do that). To save the video from your webcam as a separate file, open the settings window, go to Mixer and tick the Save camera recording as file checkbox.

 

Step 3. Configure your settings

It’s important to set the software up before starting to record. For instance, you can tweak the output video quality as well as the folder where the resulting video will be saved.

To configure the details, use the Common settings and the Export settings. The former allows you to change your Output Folder by clicking Change next to the corresponding option. If you leave the default settings, your video will be saved to the default folder: Videos\VSDC Free Screen Recorder. The latter allows you to configure the number of frames per second, resolution, hotkeys, and the overall quality of the recording. We recommend keeping the quality at 70-80%.

How to record gameplay

Once you’re done, the settings will be saved automatically.

 

Step 4. Record your Minecraft gameplay

You can now launch Minecraft. In the VSDC taskbar, right-click on the Game Capturing button and choose the game. Then, switch to the Minecraft window and press Start recording hotkey, by default it’s Ctrl+F5.

Once you’ve finished recording your footage, press the Stop recording hotkey, which is Ctrl+F8 by default. To quickly navigate to your recordings, hit the Open Output Folder in the VSDC taskbar.

 

Step 5. Add your facecam to the video

If you chose to record your webcam along with the gameplay, it’s time to add it to the video. You can use any free video editing software of your choice, however, for the sake of this tutorial, we’ll use VSDC Free Video Editor.

Launch VSDC on your computer and use the Import content option to add the gameplay video to the scene. In the pop-up project settings window hit OK. Next, press Shift + V to add a new video to the scene and select your facecam video from the computer. In the pop-up window, select Add new layer, so that the facecam video is placed over the main video with the gameplay.

From there, all you need to do is grab the handlers of the facecam video and resize it and place it in the corner of your choice.

Enjoy the result

Now that you know how to record your footage, why not try it for yourself? Who knows, maybe you’ll be the next big Minecraft YouTuber! All you have to do is try. In case you want to edit your video, look through the list of tutorials here or check out the VSDC YouTube channel.

How to Use Bezier Curves for Drawing Shapes

Bezier curve is a tool that lets you draw odd shapes with precise accuracy. In video editing, it’s one of those rare features that are easy to use and hard not to. Below, we’ll show you how to use Bezier curves in VSDC Free Video Editor for creating shapes you can later use for clipping or inverted masks. For the sake of this tutorial, we’ve selected a heart shape as an example to practice on; once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to draw any other shape quickly and effortlessly.

Bezier curves are available in VSDC starting version 6.8. Make sure to download it before getting started.

Step 1. Launch VSDC Free Video Editor and import your content

First, boot up VSDC Free Video Editor. On the main screen, there are different options for importing your content. You can create a blank project with custom parameters, or you can simply click Import content and select your video files from the computer. If you decide to do the latter, VSDC Free Video Editor will automatically change the project’s parameters to the parameters of your video.

Step 2. Draw the foundation of your shape

Once you access the project’s scene, go to the left-side menu and select the Add free shape tool:

How to use bezier curves

A window called Object position settings will pop up to indicate the position of the shape you’re creating on the timeline – just click OK.

Now, as an easy demonstration of what the Bezier curve is capable of, let’s draw a heart shape. In the previous versions of VSDC, you would have to create up to 100 control points just to draw a smooth-looking heart. However, now you’ll be able to make do with only a couple of control points, even if you have little to no vector drawing experience. The Bezier curves will practically draw the shape for you!

To get started, click anywhere on the scene and while holding the mouse button, drag it to the side. Once you do that, you’ll see two vectors that will start forming the shape. Leave them as they are and repeat your steps to create another control point above the first one: now you have half of the shape! Okay, it may not look like half of a heart shape, but that’s temporary.

 

Now all you have to do is close the shape before we start turning it into a heart. There are two ways to do that. You can either select the first control point and press the Closed Free Shape button in the Shape Point Settings, or simply hold the Ctrl key and click on your first control point.

Step 3: Adjust the vectors to achieve the desired shape

Vectors determine the shape of your figure; therefore, you can tweak the shape just by dragging them in the desired direction. For instance, to turn the circle into a heart shape, press the Ctrl key and drag one of the vectors at a 45-degree angle. Keep in mind that if you forget to press the Ctrl key, both vectors will be moving along, staying parallel to each other. Once you’re finished with one vector, drag the second one at the same angle but in the opposite direction. Repeat the process with the vectors from the second control point, and voila – you have a heart. You always had.

 

Make use of your shape

Drawing shapes with the Bezier curve is this easy. You can add as many control points as you want: each will have two vectors to help you form the shape more precisely. Whether you want to create a clipping mask, hide an object behind a shape, or just practice vector drawing – now it’s much easier. We’re excited to see what uses you’ll find for this tool!

Now, if you’d like to continue exploring the power of Bezier curves, go ahead and read our guide to using them for creating smoother, custom-paced transitions.
