Which software should I use?
« on: February 14, 2024, 01:06:15 PM »
Looking for some basic video editing software for stitching 4k videos together.

I was using Adobe online but they limit to 1gb.


Seems like all the free options have size limits or won't do 4k.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

10 years ago I would have said Windows Movie Maker but it seems to have gone extinct.
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Not sure if these will serve your specific purpose but they are great tools

I believe they replaced it with clipchamp. It doesnt come pre-installed though
I used it and was happy.

The old Windows Movie Maker is still a great simple program, but the new one is horrible IMO. If you want the installer for the old one, DM me. Though I doubt it will do really powerful HD video. It's more for simpler easy videos.

I was gonna say that but I feel like its a bit overkill for "basic video editing software for stitching 4k videos together". No?

Hit film express.
It's like a knockoff of premier pro, so might be overkill

That's hitfilm, I was referencing hitfilm express, but it looks like they discontinued new downloads Of HFE. I have an old version of it, haven't used in a long while.
Could probably still get the old free version somewhere, but yeah, not really a good solution here.

Overkill. Yes. Is most other free solutions limited/spam like. Yes as well.

When I started video editing I went straight for premier, learning the basics there is fairly straightforward and the upgrade path didn't require a new learning curve. Same for Davinci. And there's lots of easy tutorials and videos on it.
