Sometimes, we need to do some simple video editing work, so we usually use some popular video editing software such as Premiere, Corel Video Studio, Edius, etc. But you know these programs have a problem, the price is too much, so we’ll first to choose the Freeware, and then the discount product. I list some free and easy to use Video editing software here.

For all mentioned FREE video editing programs I mentioned above, I want to say I’ve referred to many user reviews and tested them all by myself. As video editing is a skill that need we spend time to learn, so I recommend these simple and easy-to-use freeware just because all these programs have no learning curve. But if you want to make an excellent pro video, I recommend you directly go to the paid product, because these professional products are much more powerful, so it’s worth to spend a time on the learning curve. I’ll introduce you two popular home video editing software that are recommended by users.
