Try Filmora: https://goo.gl/7d9Kas.
Since choosing the right video editor is a crucial step in managing your YouTube channel, what is the best editing software for youtube? Here are some of our favorites, both free and paid, for Mac AND Windows!
So this first editing software is for mac, called iMovie. It is a basic video editor that is also 100% free and can be downloaded from the app store. It also has built-in animation as well as sound effects. Mac users who are new to editing should try iMovie to get a feel for making videos because its easy for beginners to use.
Windows Movie Maker
The next one on our list is the iMovie equivalent, but for Windows. Its 100% free editing software that used to come with Windows. It’s no longer supported by Microsoft but dont worry,t you can still go download and install it on your PC. I recommend Windows Movie Maker if you’re just starting out in video editing on Windows and want to explore the basics. You can use it make a quick video using clips and images with simple audio tracks. However you’ll soon realize that for more advanced results using transitions, filters, or effects you’ll need to upgrade to another program. But since this one is completely free, there's no harm in trying it out to get going!
Filmora Video Editor
If youre looking for a more powerful video editor for both Mac and Windows, you can try our very own Filmora. Our software has an intuitive and simplified approach to editing, and is great for both beginners and more advanced editors who are looking for added features. Unlike iMovie and Windows mover maker, you can add videos and multiple layers of effects and audio to your project timeline.
Filmora removes the hassle of trying to make your videos look professional with its simplified approach to editing and awesome effects presets. With a huge library of music, titles, and visual effects you can easily spice up any video. You can even import your files from your social media accounts and when youre done editing them, upload them back to YouTube, Facebook, and Vimeo. Actually my favorite part about Filmora is that it has this awesome YouTube channel where you can learn to make pro videos from other creators, like Matt and JJ, theyre pretty cool.
Adobe Premiere Pro (Windows & Mac)
So if you’re already into video editing, then youve probably heard about Adobe Premiere Pro. This is another software like Filmora which is suitable for both windows and mac. It has gained popularity for its simple interface and large selection of effects. With it’s flexible trimming tools, unlimited multicam angles, great effects like the Warp Stabilizer that can stabilize your videos and a full internal color grading feature Premiere Pro has all the tools you’ll need to make your videos from start to finish. The best thing about Premiere Pro is the ability to integrate it with Adobe’s other products like Photoshop and After Effects for a more advanced workflow. Premiere Pro can have a steep learning curve for beginners and a complicated user interface. The only way to get ahold of Premier is paying a monthly subscription fee of $40. So if you're a serious editor you’ll likely spend more than a few hundred dollars renting this program.
Sony Vegas Pro (Windows)
If youre a Windows user looking for a really advanced editing software, you might consider VEGAS Pro, made by Sony, one of the biggest names in multimedia products. Although not very modern looking, Vegas has tons of advanced features like visual special effects, 3D editing, compositing, white balance, and chroma key.
For beginners that are relatively new the program has a steep learning curve due to all the features found on its interface. But like filmora, this program has built-in interactive tutorials that show you how many of these tools actually work. I recommend this software only if youre a more advanced editor looking to switch to something with more features, or are willing to put in the time it takes to learn to edit on an advanced program.
Final Cut Pro (Mac)
Final Cut Pro is an advanced editing software for MacOS users. The powerful tool allows editors to create amazing videos using features like filters, motion graphics, and special effects.
What differentiates Final Cut Pro from other editors, is that it also supports 360-degree video editing for VR and real-time VR headset playback to see how your 360 edits work in their target environment. Its also really great for mac users because its architecture allows it to run off of the latest CPU and graphics cards,, so users can get the most speed and power out of their editing computers,
Now these are simply just software tools to get the job done. Making great videos goes beyond just editing, its also important to generate new video ideas, take great shots, and get good audio.
