Nonlinear video editor

- Advertisement -

Our editor is a non-linear tool. This means that, unlike most other editors, where scenes follow each other in a linear sequence and in a certain order, our program allows you to place objects anywhere on the timeline and have any size. In addition, various parameters, shape and position of objects can change arbitrarily over time.

Visual and sound effects

You can apply various visual and sound effects to your videos to achieve the desired result. Since the number of available visual effects is very large, they are divided into five categories for ease of navigation: color correction, object transformation, object filters, transition effects, and special effects.

Instagram style blend modes and filters

Another way to change the look of your video image according to your preferences is color mixing. With a wide range of customizable options, you can give your video a unique, professional look. Beginners or those who want to save time can take advantage of stylish Instagram-style filters that are applied in one click.


VSDC Free Video Editor allows you to create different shaped masks to hide, blur or highlight certain elements in your video. You can use it to apply special effects inside or outside the masked area. One of the most common reasons for masking is to blur the face to protect identity or remove unwanted marks.

Motion tracking

The motion tracking tool allows you to register and track the movements of any objects in the video, and then assign the resulting trajectory to other elements – titles, captions, icons, images, masks, etc. With its help, it becomes easy to impose a censorship mask on a moving object or to do so, to have the captions follow the selected item in the video.

Built-in color themes allow you to quickly change the look of your charts.

Video library (will be included in the next release of the program)

The software editor allows you to create your own library of multimedia files with brief or detailed descriptions. This will help you organize your video collection and make it easier to access the files you need.

Video stabilization tool

Footage taken from drones, action cameras or other mobile devices often needs to be improved. The VSDC stabilization tool, like your virtual tripod, helps eliminate shaking or any other shaky effects caused by camera movement and turn it into a much smoother video image.
