The Free-video-editor is a basic, no-frills video cutting, editing and conversion tool that is ideal for small projects. It does not offer a lot of special effects, audio integration or captioning tools, and advanced users will find much to be desired if they choose this utility for serious editing projects.

Installation and use

The file is a mere 25 MB that can easily be downloaded and installed, and users can start editing right away thanks to a simple interface. It lacks the visual appeal and bells-and-whistles that are found in other programs. However, it works just fine for basic cutting, pasting and trimming. Producing and converting the finished product is also very easy. Simply select the format and other miscellaneous specifications and then press the button.

The program will allow users to convert videos to some of the more popular output formats, including AVI, WMV, MP4 and FLV, and this is a great little tool for someone who wants get a simple job done fast. The process of conversion can take a few seconds to almost an hour depending on the format, length and quality of the video.

System performance also influences how long it takes to process a video. Users with slower computers will find themselves spending a lot of time waiting for the video to finish converting, and it is also a challenge to multitask while the conversion is taking place.

Final Thoughts

This program is OK for someone who just wants to cut, splice and then merge clips together into a new video. Anyone who wants a lot of editing and file manipulation features should seek one of many other programs that are freely available out there today. It works just fine for most versions of Windows, and the software is not prone to stalling or crashing during the conversion process.
