Choosing video editing software can be daunting for first-timers and seasoned pros alike. How do you make sense of the wide range of products available on the market—especially with new products being constantly released?
When choosing video editing software, you should pay attention to several important factors: the needs of your project, the computer and operating system on which you are going to edit and whether it can support the software you choose to use, and your budget.
Consider also your skills and capabilities as a video editor. Are you just starting out and are looking for a simple interface, or do you need a more sophisticated programme with a wider range of capabilities? Free programmes such as Windows Media Maker are known for being unstable and frequently crashing, and as such do not allow for complex edits. Can your software support handle the format and resolution at which you want to capture, import, and export? Is it compatible with other common software, for example Adobe Photoshop? A project is only as good as its tools—and serious editors may end up shelling out a great deal of money to purchase decent software.
