FREE Video Editing/ Converting Programs?

Note that is says *Free* in all capital letters :)

I have a HD Digital Camera that records in .MOV and .MOV only, so I wanted a free video editing program as well as a converter, that can caonvert the .mov into something more universally, like .avi or .mp4. I record videos at 1440x1080 and would like to keep the quality. I would like to do time lapses of the sky and the river, but I also want to record other videos :)


Oh, a smart answer.... thanks. I've tried quite a few and they are mostly crap. I was looking for suggestions, from people who actually are or have used them.

    Hi, guys,i don't think there is a free software can do that well, because I have tried many free softwares, none of them can work well, some of them have many limits, some of them are poor quality, some of them even have virus, so now I am using a good and inexpensive software RZ Video Converter, it can convert any videos or audios between different formats with good quality, such as convert your 1440x1080 mov to the 1440x1080 avi or mp4 video file with good quality, etc. Yahoo or google search and download RZ Video Converter. Hope it can help you.

    i think there is no editing/converting software free

    most needs fees, just free to try

    if you just converting software

    there may lies lots of free converter

    such as AVC,wondershare,Xilisoft,videoconverterfactory

    for editing/converting program

    HD Video Converter Factory Pro is well

    it may satisfy you, it fees, but the price is low--29.95

    you can have a try

    here is the link:

    To be honestly , these kind of programs are commercial product , you need to pay people's hard work.

    actually there is a way out for free ,but make sure you are a computer geek, coz most of them do not have window, they are command line such as DOS. i current use wondershare video converter , it works great for me.

    for free:

    for non-free

    Try Super v2010. I've tried four different freebies and in my opinion this one is the best.

    By the way, "Any Video Converter" is the name of a real program. I've used it also. It's a good second choice.

    Generally Windows Movie Maker support .asf, .avi, .m1v, .mp2, .mp2v, .mpe, .mpeg, .mpg, .mpv2, .wm, .wmv. If you use Vista it also support .dvr-ms. So you can convert your video to any of them above, you can use Cucusoft Ultimate Video Converter which can support output almost any audio/video format including Video format(H264, MP4, WMV, AVI, MOV, RM, 3GP, flv, SWF, mpeg-1, mpeg-2, VideoCD, SuperVideoCD, DVD, etc) and Audio format(AC3, AAC, MP2, MP3, MP4, RA, WMA, etc.). Hope can help you!
