What is the best software for Video and Audio editing?

Hai, I am an IT student and as an IT we are also require not just to do codes but also to edit video and audio as well. I am editing video using power director software and audacity for audio. I have only a celeron processor and as expected my laptop cannot handle large amount of memory that a software contain.
Is there any software better than what i have? I need you opinions.
Thanks.

The best you can use are from Adobe. Specifically, Premier and Audition. Premier has a built in recorder for the voice, but if you are a sound engineer or a musician, audition is one good DAW as well.

Yes, both of these programs are very powerful on their own, but it's even more useful in that Adobe makes it easy to send your project to either one in order to use their specific functions.

If you're wanting to tweak audio in your timeline in Premiere, you can send it directly to Audition with just a couple clicks and edit it painlessly there before sending it back to Premiere. I'd highly recommend looking into Adobe's Creative Cloud if you haven't already.

For video editing, I would suggest you go and try Sony Vegas Pro edition. It is one of the widely used video editing software and it has a lot of perks and features. As for the audio editing software, I would also recommend you try out Acoustica and Audacity. I've use them all and they really live up to your expectations when it comes to editing. You could also find plenty of tutorials in the Internet if you aren't familiar of them.

Sony Vegas Pro is definitely the best for video editing. My friend uses it and is extremely happy with it. I'm not sure if it is pretty easy to use or if it is pretty advanced but I would definitely try it out if I was you. It is used by a lot of people and is quite popular with a lot of professionals as well. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what to recommend to you in terms of audio editing.

Well, i use blender, the open source program Blender is more than just a video editor: It's a full-blown 3D animation suite,
which allows for modeling, rendering, motion tracking, and more.
On the video editing side, there are a ton of features, including transitions, speed control, filters, adjustment layers, and more. There are also 32 slots available for adding video clips, audio clips, images,and effects, which means you can produce some incredibly complex video.
For the amateur video editor, all the functionality that's available can be a bit overwhelming. But if you're looking to produce truly
professional-quality video -- without having to deal with watermarks -- Blender is a solid option. The best part: "You are free to use Blender for any purpose, including commercially or for education,

I edit video and audio projects 40 hours a week as a career, and also do freelance videography on the side, and I've found that the Adobe Suite is by far the most powerful multimedia took you could possibly have in your toolkit. It's kind of pricey with a monthly subscription, but if you're going to be doing video and audio editing regularly, I'd highly recommend it.

Adobe has produced a convenient and powerful "ecosystem", you could say, between their different products. I've found it's painless to take one element from your video project and direct link it to another program for tweaking.

For example, I'm editing a video in Premiere Pro and the audio isn't quite loud enough against the background music and that sort of thing. I can simply right click my audio track and click "Edit with Adobe Audition". It'll send the file immediately over to Audition for editing, and when I save it in the Audition, it sends the newly edited file directly back to Premiere and updates my timeline. There's very little effort required to go that extra mile for your production, in my opinion.

The only video editing I have ever done was with windows movie maker and xilisoft movie maker. Windows movie maker is a free video making/editing tool from microsoft. You can edit a video frame by frame on this program. You can elimite background sound or add background score. You can also use special effects. However, this tool is for the amatures who want to make home videos or videos for video sharing sites.

Sony Vegas and the Filmora are two options in that case. I have sony vegas which takes care of the most of the content. You can get the plugins for the audio and video and that should be more than good enough to take care of the editing part. If you want the most easiest editor for the video then filmora is the one good option. That editor seems to be helping a lot of youtube users as they choose to add the content for the video. I am going to use it and see if that can make it easy for me to edit the videos.

I've always wanted to try video and audio editing but I've never did because of lack of knowledge and tools, and maybe because I'm to lazy to do it >_< . But know I'm more encouraged to do it because I have something to start with.

It's definitely a time intensive process, but if you can watch tutorials online and get a feel for the software, you should be able to be putting videos together in no time! Of course, it's a multi step process. Are you prepared to capture your own video, or a source for the videos that you will be editing?

I'm using adobe premiere and I think that this is the best I used yet. I'm newbee at video editing and adobe premiere is very suitable for me to practice some effects. I watch some tutorials on youtube to have reference and found out that my favorite vlogers and youtubers are mostly using adobe premiere for their editing tool. I will try some editing tools after I finish studying adobe premiere.

I am using Sony Vegas. It's one of the best editing app I've used so far. Their user interface is easy to understand, even if your beginner for editing. I would recommend upgrading to Sony Vegas Pro, if you want to add more variety of features & editing effects. Overall, Sony Vegas is a good choice as newbie in editing.

Oh boy I have learned a lot from the responses in this thread! I really want to learn audio and video editing and I am currently also looking for the best software to use. Thank you so much for everyone who has replied. But i wonder, which soctware would be the most beginner friendly? Since I would literally start from 0.

I find Sony Vegas pro a little bit more flexible when it comes to editing. I also used audacity for audio. Sony Vegas is also easy to learn. After effects is good too. And gives that awesome looking effects too.

Usually you wouldn't use only one software. The best combination out there right now is Sony Vegas + Adobe After Effects. You can always do the simpler things like cutting, rendering and adding basic effects with Vegas, however if you want to go for more advanced edits you should use After Effects, which allows you to do practically anything your mind can come up with. However unlike Vegas, After Effects is kinda hard to get into, but with enough practice you can do well.

Any Adobe suit will do the case. Altho Sony Vegas is really nice too. If you are willing to process your audio in a more professional way, I would suggest using a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). Reaper is a very good one, itsn't free, but it don't have trial time also. You can use freely, even use its very internal plugins, such as EQ, compression etc.

Today, nearly everyone can make videos to share with friends or post online. Capturing footage is as easy as few taps on your smartphone. You can even post your video online right from the device you recorded it on. This works great for sharing quick moments like the winning score at a soccer game or a cute video of your cat. But if you want to make something more involved, more special, more engaging, then you need more power and more tools than your phone offers. You need powerful video editing software that can transform your raw footage, audio and other media into a compelling narrative that will attract and keep the attention of a wide audience.Video editing software for Windows is easy to use. It doesn't matter if you've never edited video before or have rudimentary skills; these movie editor programs are increasingly intuitive and offer training and tutorials for all their tools and features. They even offer easy editing modes and automatic video creation. The best video editing software programs provide you with the tools you need to make polished videos. They educate their users and help you become a better video editor. Power Director 15 is the best for me today, It offers a unique combination of high-end performance and advanced editing features. It's remarkably easy to use, making video editing accessible to creators of all skill levels, and a huge selection of customizable design tools, including unique alpha transitions, animated titles, particles and PiP objects, provide the freedom to explore creativity and reflect it in unique video creations.

For Video editing, I've been using Windows Movie Maker since it is free editing tool. I can make my own home movies by simple drag-and-drop. I like its features; the video effects, video transitions, adding the titles and credits, audio track, timeline narration, and Auto Movie. I never changed my software since 2010.

For Audio Editing, I use Audacity. If you are making quality music video covers I recommend this one. It is good in performing basic audio editing. I find myself constantly using it for the same time chores . If you are making a podcast, you will too. I use it to record audio from a microphone or from some other sources, like a tape deck or turntable.

Adobe offers a lot of application that change the world we are living today. From it's famous photoshop to its other products including Lightroom, Audition, Premier Pro, After Effects and many more. Since you ask for the Video one. Most likely Premier Pro is your way to go app. You can also do it on if your graphic design editor on their After Effects. As for audio, there is Ableton live that is quite complicated but ones you finish mastering it. Boom! you can do whatever you want to do regarding on your audio.

What is the best software for Video and Audio editing?I use Cyberlink PowerDirector for Video Editing. You can do a lot of things like adding some transitions to your video, create an effect, edit your video, have an overlay video, et cetera. Use PD if you really want to create an outstanding video because that's the best software that I can recommend to you. I recently created a video where on the left side are the pictures with transition/effects, and on the right side is playing a movie. Here's my work.

The best that I have used so far is Cyberlink Power Director because it is user friendly. This software contains powerful timeline video editing, slow motion effect, free video effects, photo video editor, action video effects, voice overs and others. It offers a variety of tools that lessen the difficulty of video editing. Even for an ordinary student like me, I can create magnificent video edition just using it.

Sony Vegas Pro is definitely the best audio and video editing software for me since many professionals use this and the interface is very good. I used to edit videos in Sony Vegas Pro and I enjoyed using it since it has many features which is not usual on some audio and video editing softwares

For audio it doesn't really get any more lightweight than Audacity (which is a magnificent piece of software, BTW!), so if your computer is struggling with it, then apart from getting a new - or at least new-er - computer is the only option you really have. Luckily audio editing, if we're only talking about simple one of two track audio recording, is not a very hefty task to begin with, so it doesn't need a lot of processing power.
If you are doing music with VSTi's or similar things, then you're in for a much more need, especially when it comes to memory. I have i5 with 4 GB's of RAM, and running six tracks with VSTi's starts to get pretty hard.

For video editing you can just forget it if you already have issues with audio only, as video editing takes massive amounts of processing power which you obviously do not have.

Gone are days when creating a short film or documentary was a task of technical expertise and one should be quite a professional to deal with editing and related tasks. Now, however, after dawn of all these revolutionary technologies and their day-to-day applications, video editing too has become an easy-to-accomplish task, if you know which video editors you should use. A huge number of video editing software available in industry, both paid and free, it will be probably a tough task for you to choose one editing tool from the list and then to accomplish your editing task! VEGAS Pro is one of the biggest names in professional video editing software. It’s been used for years to create movies, TV shows, music videos and more. It has a very intuitive user interface, especially if you’re upgrading from VEGAS Pro's consumer-level application VEGAS Movie Studio. It excels at creating visual special effects, 3D titling and compositing, and it even allows you to author DVDs and Blu-ray discs. Its ever-expanding tool set makes it a good choice for pro video editors who want the power and granular control needed to make the high-quality videos demanded by their audience.

I use Sony Vegas Pro 14 for editing my videos because specs of my computer doesn't meet the requirements in Adobe after effects. If you have the computer capable of having high memory in processor, RAM and with multi core i recommend you to use After effects. Its better to start in best than switching to any software. For me Sony Vegas is okay but after effects i much better. In audio software i use Audacity it is good for editing and recording audios. The best also in the software is very lightweight.

I'm not particularly fond of creating videos and audio these days because of my work, but I do have experience also on creating and editing one as well as hard coding subtitles on it. Mostly anime series that I downloaded on torrent in High Definition, that's 720 up to 1080 pixels then re-encoded them with subtitles to a lower resolution but still in good or its highest quality. I've edited video and audio from a program called AVS Video Editor although its kinda hard to learn how it works I think I've just used it for cropping videos and audios then saving it to a new format.

For editing videos, I usually use adobe premiere. It's easy to use to edit videos. There are preset effects that you can use to make your videos look professional. But in your case, I think you'll be having a problem because it requires high speed processor, memory, and graphics card. I'm not familiar with sony vegas, but I have friends that are using it and they said that it's a good video editing software and can run on lower speed processor.

They aren't very user friendly, but when it comes to editing anything, I can't praise Adobe products enough.

Adobe After effects is without a doubt the best professional video editing tool, in my opinion. The possibilities are endless, and literally the only thing that is limiting your from making professional quality movies is your own time, skill, and computer power. The tool itself is pretty much perfect.

A program they have for less complicated editing projects is Adobe Premiere, which has all the essentials you need for cutting up and editing video clips together. I typically use a combination of After Effects and Premiere to get my work done.

As for audio editing. Adobe Audition is a phenomenal program. Just as the possibilities are endless with After Effects and Premiere, the same goes for Audition. It gives you full control over any and all parameters that you may need to edit.

Hello jomarillana,
I've been working with music for 12 years and I can recommend FL Studio for editing audio files. This program allows you to use various plug-ins to change the sounds of a musical instrument, which you can find on the Blue Buzz Music website. Also, the great advantage of this program is that almost all the actions of changes are performed automatically and the functionality of this program allows you to write music of various genres. To start, you can use the trial version of this program, but I would advise you to purchase the licensed version in the future.
