FREE EDITING APPS



Open source film & free editing applications for Mac, windows and Linux. Descriptions of the apps are not ours! Mpeg streamclip is a must-have in my opinion though. As for the ‘professional’ commercial applications out there – Final Cut studio/ Avid/ Premiere & not so pro but pretty good, Sony Vegas, I would recommend downloading trial versions and seeing which you prefer out of them……

Windows Movie maker
You must use internet explorer to download this product as well, Open source browsers will not allow you to access the site I believe.
