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.

  1. Davinci resolve is nice but is gpu based so if you have an older card it will run sluggish I run a 570 and it's not smooth

  2. On Savin I resolve it won’t let me export it keeps saying rendering at 0fps and the time remaining keeps going up

  3. Im right using Wondershare filmora x and its ok its just the bigg water mark. I am going to check out Davinci. Nice vid duded

  4. Me: Spend hours making anime intro.
    Filmora: I'll end this mans whole carrier.

  5. What are your thoughts on Active Presenter, Wondershare Filmora, and Open Broadcaster Software (OBS)? I used Filmora for some school projects, it was pretty cool and functional. Right now I'm using Active Presenter (originally I was recording job lectures with it but now using it for video editing for YouTube videos). I may switch to OBS in the future as I know it is geared towards gamers and streamers. I didn't expect to see Blender here, funny I downloaded it but only in mind with 3D graphics if I wanted to venture into it. It can definitely do impressive animation as well I'm sure.

  6. Would appreciate a vid talking about a free, no watermark, and commercial use permitted

  7. Blender Is Hard (For Me Not You)
    Because Menu And Windows Is Complicated
    So I Recommend Hitfilm!
