Although the name of tool is VSDC Free Video Editor, it supports a number of actions to be done! Those purposes of using VSDC Video Editor are as follows:

Combining and Editing Videos [The Manual Method]

As we mentioned earlier, you have to bring source video files into the tool and combine them to form a new one. For doing this, first, you have to create a new project. From the project-creation window, you should select Import video and images option along with technical requirements, such as resolution, frequency and width, of output video.

Screen Recording and Video Capturing

In the screen-recording mode, you have to select the resolution of output video, select the area to be recorded, and it will start recording the screen in minutes. According to our experience, we faced no issues while recording screen, and quality of output file was nice. On the other hand, in case of video capturing mode, you can use external source to record video with customizable options. These two options are much productive, indeed.

Our Verdict

According to our experience, performance of VSDC Video Editor is somewhat impressive and it does well if your first concern is to create satisfactory videos without any sluggishness in-between! This absence of sluggishness can also be seen during installation of VSDC Video Editor, and it took a few seconds only. In addition, VSDC Video Editor does offer some “recommended” software that can be accessed during the last step of installation. However, this feature may vary according to the country you belong to! However, if you are able to access this set of free software, it will be a big deal, indeed.

    Hi Abhijith,

    Read your post really that was amazing software and post was very clearly with nice features. It’s just as simple to add a soundtrack, captions and credits, and you can save the results as a video file, or upload them directly to YouTube, Facebook and many other sites.

    I have a really important question.

    I created a project, and I saved it because I wanted to work further on it later; but now when I open my project again, I can’t add/delete any of the pictures and videos that are in the video. How do I edit a saved project?

    Please answer, it’s really important!!!
