    EaseUS Video Editor (Windows)

    EaseUS Video Editor is a great video editing software for Windows that allows you to create spectacular videos in just a few clicks. Offers an extremely intuitive user interface (translated into your language), through which it is possible to edit videos by applying over 50 visual and transition effects, adding music, photos and narrations, cutting them, dividing them, rotating them, adjusting their zoom and much more.

    It supports any multimedia file imported from PCs, smartphones, tablets, camcorders, DV camcorders, webcams and other devices. The final works can be exported locally to the computer in various formats, including those optimized for uploading online to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter etc., they can be burned to video DVD or exported in formats optimized for smartphones and tablets of various brands.



    To download EaseUS Video Editor for free on your PC, connect to the official website of the program and click on the button Free trial. When the download is complete, then open the .exe file obtained and, in the window that opens, click on the buttons Yes, OK, NEXT (four consecutive times), Install e end, but will conclude the setup.

    When installation is complete, to create a new project with EaseUS Video Editor, start the program and choose the format of the video to create: 9:16 (Portrait), 16: 9 (Widescreen) o 4: 3 (Traditional). Then follow the initial tutorial and import the videos you want to use in your creation by pressing the button Import located at the top left or by dragging them into the program window. Repeat the same operation for any photos and audio tracks to add to the project.


    Once this is done, drag on timeline of EaseUS Video Editor, below, the videos (and / or images and audio tracks) that you want to include in your project, arranging them in the order you prefer. Then use the timeline or the player located at the top right to get to the point of the movie to edit and use the buttons in the center of the screen to divide, crop, adjust the zoom, apply themosaic effect, register a audio narration or other.


    By clicking, instead, on the icon of the pencil or by double clicking on the timeline you can access the panel to edit speed, orientation, contrast, saturation, volume e audio fade of the selected video segment.

    To insert new elements to your movie, however, all you have to do is select the tabs Text, filters, coatings, Transitions, Elements e Music positioned on the left, take the element of your interest and drag it to the timeline, where you want to add it.

    When the result satisfies you, you can export your video by pressing the button Export located above the timeline by selecting the format of your interest among those available (eg. MP4, REVIEWS o MOV; in the card Video platform you can find formats optimized for YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other online services), choosing the destination path (via the icon of folder) and pressing the button Export.


    The free version of EaseUS Video Editor adds a watermark to the output videos and does not allow you to export movies in Full HD quality. To remove these limitations and also have access to other functions, you need to purchase the Pro version of the software, at 46,95 euros. More info here.

    Avidemux (Windows / macOS / Linux)
