Lightworks is professional standard video editing software that you can download for free from their website. 


  • When most editing software is either only available for Apple computers (iMovie) or is very expensive (Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere), having free software of this quality is a real rarity
  • There are some great tutorials on YouTube and they provide their own training via webinar, including a few freebies
  • With almost endless options, you can add titles and effects to give your videos a really professional look


  • If you really want to make the most of the software then you'll probably have to pay to upgrade to one of the professional versions of the tool
  • It is industry standard, so if you're a beginner, you might need to try a few of the tutorials to become a confident user
