The rise of YouTube and other popular video sharing sites have ensured that video editing doesn’t remain a super-geeky thing. Don’t be surprised if you catch your 9 year old sprucing up the video of her puppy using a video editing tool before uploading it to YouTube. With the kind of free video editing software available at your disposal now, it’s not at all difficult to edit and create great videos.

The following list talks about 8 such tools that can help you edit, add affects and do much more with your videos. Both desktop software and online tools are included. Check them out.

Windows Live Movie Maker – that comes as a part of Windows Live Essentials suite – is a powerful and feature-rich video editing software by Microsoft. You can edit videos, audio, add all kinds of effects, add photos directly from Windows Live Photo Gallery and do much more. There’s also an interesting feature called the AutoMovie theme that lets you quickly choose photos and videos and then automatically create a movie out of them in no time.



VideoToolBox is a pretty impressive online video editing tool that’s free. It can accept video file up to 600 MB in size and has a range of features to cater to all your video editing needs.

jaycut online video editor

JayCut (Update: From their homepage it looks like they’ve shut down the service) is a free online video editor that has an amazing number of features that is a bit surprising for a web based editing tool to have. The good thing about JayCut is that even beginners can quickly understand its interface and get started with the video editing process.
