This is one of the most simple, reliable and accessible video editing software programs on the planet, and it is totally free to use and enjoy. The latest version enables users greater control of caption as well as audio editing, and it is also faster and more stable than before.

There are some really expensive video editing software programs out there today, and Windows has designed this particular program to offer a totally free and relatively comparable alternative to consider. It enables users to cut and splice video clips through a drag-and-drop interface, add captions, titles and credits while also being able to integrate several visual effects.

Users simply have to insert the video clips into the editor, and the software will convert and process them into almost any format imaginable once the project is ready for production. It also comes with a large number of presets that automatically optimize videos for popular websites such as YouTube and Facebook.

The good news is that this program is really easy to install and use because it is a Microsoft product. The bad news is that it does not include a lot of little extras that are common in more comprehensive video editing programs. Users can edit audio volume but inserting various tracks into the videos is not as easy.

It is also difficult to create complex effects, and there are only a handful that are available with the stock program. Watermarking features are lackluster, and the only way to edit videos is by cutting and pasting. The interface is also very different from professional editing tools as well.

This is a great utility for simple to intermediate editing projects, and it is very user-friendly. Anyone can get up and running with little or no experience, and the user interface is very easy to understand.
