Thread: Trying to decide which editor to try learning with

    Question Trying to decide which editor to try learning with

    Hi,


    I'd like to try learning to do some basic video editing, to be able to mix in shots from different vids and from different sections in the same vid and shorten things etc. Also to be able to add sounds and music. And as you can tell I'm not only very new to it but haven't even tried doing any yet. At this point I'm trying to find the best free or cheap editor to use, so would like one that's fairly easy to learn and also that's popular enough I can ask for help in forums. Maybe even some of them have their own forums? I found that to be true and a great forum it is for Reaper DAW for example. Right now from a review I read and then some Youtube tutorials I'm thinking hard about trying Openshot. Would that be as good to start out with as any?


    Thank you for any help or suggestions!

    There's plenty else. Why not let him go for Openshot? Seems to be reasonable for beginners. Also it would make much more sense to go with a free editor when you're just starting out.

    Absolutley. I’m starting out and happy using a free editor. If/when I progress I may consider putting my hand in my pocket but free works for me at the moment.

    I'm not in this for the money, its a hobby. Hence free software being a good place to start. Maybe not for everyone but works for me for the time being.
