Cyberlink audio encoding is absolute garbage and clips/distorts audio worse than free mp3 encoders. Additionally, high speed video production quality is terrible and I’ve tried every CODEC and parameter permutation possible….1080P will look 720P when produced for anything moving at more than a few miles per hour. I can’t comment on the others as I have no experience.

Jack Mania says:

9,12 is the best part!

Hi Justin I downloaded davinci resolve 14 but my laptop goes up to 1920×1080 resolution and the app does not fit my screen. I’ve read that it is most suitable for 1920×1200 resolutions. Does that mean I can’t use it on my laptop? Should I download a different editor which fits my screen? Any advice?

Roy C says:

Thanks for the explanation. I’m done using the free programs. I need more options with creative ideas. I narrowed the option down to 2

Jack Mania says:

Ive been using the free version of the Australian editor Videopad.. anyone know anything about it? As it wasnt mentioned on here. M getting ready to upgrade and thought I would just ask about Videopad pros and cons.

Jack Mania says:

9.12 is the best part

Avid Abstractions says:

Thank you for these great reviews! Really helpful!

RosesforRosa says:

I use Pinnacle Studio Ultimate 20, love it and it works well. I found your channel through “Nick Nimmin”and you give the best advice. I myself are also in Australia and I am a small channel which does gaming. I started three months ago and I love it so much. You might see you in your live streams from time to time. Also thanks to Nicks tips I now have a very nice presented channel and thumbnails, which there are also more room for improvements. Nick is good, but I would also like to get support from an Australian channel, as us Australians need to stick together. Tips and Advice are always good to get.

My fav Is CyberLink Power Director Pro 16 Ultimate

Shine Insurance says:

Just have to say – subscribed to the highest level $8/month WeVideo after watching this video and it was really disappointing. The audio options are super limited and the cropping flexibility was super choppy across the board. Been trying to move from Camtasia and thought a web based option would be great but it seems like amateur hour over there. Guess I’ll try PowerDirector.

Priest Town says:

i have downloaded  Hit film Davinci resolve and Avs I FOUND was the best to use but  both have watermarks and wont allow you to actually UPLOAD OR SAVE YOUR VIDEO without paying so not free atall .. HIT FILM EXPRESS is practically unusable and sluggish and I gave up trying to create a video with that program did not find out weather it had water marks or export.  Is there any FREE softwear that is actually FREE.

Gordon Robertson says:

I do DIY repair videos on a windows 7 desktop with Windows Movie Maker, as long as I don’t cut too much and use mp4 I get by. I’m getting into drone video which I can reduce to mp4 but with drone, everybody’s doing the 4k now for the majestic footage, well I can’t even do a short HD in my DIY videos, the best drone channels are using Final Cut Pro and Premier Pro on Mac which I don’t have and am a bit scared to invest in not knowing how long it will take me to learn. How much power do I need in a desktop with windows 7 to do what I want to do, what software should I look at, or should I really consider the Mac and Final Cut Pro for the fast rendering? Please respond. Thank you. Gordon.

Filmora wondershare literally took over lightworks, If you try to download it brings you to a filmora wondershare download!
