Looking for a good video editor alternative to Sony Vegas

Postby Clownman » Thu May 17, 2018 11:21 pm

Hey, so... I forget if I made a thread about this years back but I'm having trouble finding a video editor (preferably free or cheap) that's able to do about as much as Sony Vegas. I've been stuck with Movie Maker for years and I've tried a few other software such as OpenShot but not only do these stress my PC out immensely, but they are riddled with all sorts of problems with just importing audio files and whatnot.

Basically I'm looking for something simple to use, can possibly overlay sound and at least possibly be able to use greenscreen/overlays and special effects. I really hope I'm not asking for too much but google hasn't been really helpful with lending me alternates, Most I come across require payments otherwise you are stuck with a shitty time limit or a huge ass banner watermark.

I use Adobe Premiere Pro for pretty much everything, and it is amazing. But it is on the "more expensive side."

On the free/open side, there is Cinelerra. I've never used it myself so I don't know if it can do exactly what you want, but I have seen it mentioned elsewhere and I've seen it used (like Xiph.org's videos). I'm also not sure if it works on Windows, or if anyone's ported it to Windows.

DaVinci Resolve might be something you'll like. It's a higher end-production video editor. But you can get it for free - minus a few advanced features. Editing works just as fine -- and you get its amazing color correction if you ever need it.

Again, it's for high end production work. So it looks daunting at first. A few YouTube videos will get you going for basic non-linear editing.
