In this video, I’ll be showing you the top 5 (best) free video editing software/editors for Windows/Mac/Linux. These video editors have no watermarks, no time limit, and no video resolution restrictions. All of these video editors have highly functional and are great for editing YouTube videos, TikTok videos, Instagram reels (and IGTV), short films, skits, gaming videos, and more!

00:00 | Top 5 Best FREE Video Editing Software 2021! (No Watermarks)
Finding a functional, simple, free video editor without any watermark is extremely hard. Most free video editing software only allows you to export your videos in a certain resolution (usually 720p), use “free” effects and features leaving the rest for paid versions of the editor, or leaves a watermark when you export. Because of this, I compiled 5 of the best free video editing software for Mac, Windows, and Linux in my opinion!
00:57 | Blender
Blender is a free, open-source video editor, that is often compared to Cinema4D. You’re able to do basic video editing as well as very advanced 3D compositing & VFX in this editor. I would recommend using this editor if you plan on incorporating your video editing with 3D elements you create in this software.
02:10 | Kapwing
Kapwing is one of the best free, collaborative, web-based video editors I could find when doing research for this video. I would recommend using this video editing software if you’re making videos for social media (Instagram Reels, IGTV, TikTok, YouTube) or are working with a team, requiring multiple people to edit a video.
03:15 | iMovie & Windows Movie Maker (Video Editor)
iMovie and Windows Movie Maker (now know as Video Editor) are on this list because of their ease-of-use, accessibility, and because everyone has one or the other already downloaded. I would recommend using either of these editors if you plan on making very simple videos (just cutting clips, adding music, adding transitions).
04:07 | Hitfilm Express
Hitfilm Express is a free, powerful video editing software that I often compare to Adobe Premiere Pro CC. It has all the same features except it is free! It is an overall great video editor and has some useful plugin-ins you can download and tutorials you can follow 🙂
05:59 | DaVinci Resolve 17
DaVinci Resolve is one of the most used video editing software there is! A ton of movies, TV shows, and large-scale video projects are color-graded & edited in the software. It is by far the best video editor on this list. I’m surprised it’s not a paid software.
