Hello,

 

I have a video file (mp4) that I'd like to take a couple of clips from and so I'm looking for some free editing software.

 

So far, I've downloaded two programmes that claimed to be free - only to find I need an activation licence (at a price) in order to use the 'free' software.

 

Does anyone konw of any genuinely free video editing software? I don't need anything fancy, I just and to be able to take out a couple of clips.

 

TIA

 

RSP

Hello RSP,

 

I've used a variety of video editing software programs over the years.  Some free and some not.  My current free choice is Avid Media Composer | First (https://www.avid.com...-composer-first).  This is a fully featured video editing application, lots of awesome features, and is completely free.  The only caveat is that it requires a bit of a learning curve up front, but is well worth the effort.

 

In addition, I've also had success with Windows Movie Maker (https://www.microsof...ell-your-story/) for simple edits and trims.

 

I hope that helps! :)

By the way, I had some problems extracting and installing Avid Media Composer First.

Some file names where too long and I got error messages.

 

I've just installed Filmora and will see how I get on with that.

 

Thanks to all for the suggestions.
