Free and Easy-to-Use Video Editing Software

Filmora Video Editor is a video editing application, developed by Wondershare Software, and offered on a free trial basis. Users are able to try out the full range of functions, although the trial version automatically adds watermarks to exported videos. The software itself includes a range of powerful editing options, including the ability to add audio, transitions, text and more than 300 built-in effects to videos. It offers a wide range of import and export options and is easy to use, although it is geared slightly more towards novice editors, meaning the most experienced editors may not find all they need. Nevertheless, Filmora Video Editor produces extremely professional results and will be more than sufficient for most users' requirements.
