Anyone knows a good video editor?
« on: November 14, 2017, 08:01:34 AM »
Seems it's an epidemic. First photobucket wiped out years of visual documentation, now YouTube ceased to offer its video editor, which was nearly perfect for preparing videos for sharing.

Now I'm looking for a video editor I can use to edit my saber related videos, freeware preferred, with similar features as what YouTube offered:
- cut video
- overlay text on the screen
- make transitions with different effects
- mix in music (optional)

If anyone has an idea, thanks in advance!

I really like Vegas, the controls and quick keys are very intuitive and it has everything you need.  I was originally introduced to Vegas by a friend who worked for NBC and used the professional version, but for my purposes the consumer product does everything I need.

You could try OpenShot, it's got more bugs than an anthill, but it's free and open-source.

Thanks Jason, in fact someone else already suggested Vegas, but I though it was a joke. Now I know it's really a software :)
