    The Windows 10 Video Editor is a great basic video editor that gets the job done. If you need transitions, keyframes, multiple tracks, green screen, etc. Shotcut is a free and open-source video editor that provides all of this and more. Find out how to get started with Shotcut in this tutorial:

    Thank you for a nice tutorial. This file is automatically saved in MP4, if I need to transfer it to MPEG 2 what (free) converter will do the best job preserving quality? Thanks-Rudolph

    Whilst it is a good app in terms of what it can do, it is basically crap due to its error re drivers and other issues. Until microsoft fix it then dont touch it. The error has been discussed in forums for years

  12. I have a question. I have some videos I want to edit. When I uploaded the raw footage onto the software to edit, the sound was super super fast and completely out of sync with the visual footage. But the sound is fine when I play the footage on the windows media player.
