VSDC Free Video Editor exceeds the standard array of functions required for modest editing goals. Faced with a long video conversion: a 7:30 minute video (a part of which was accelerated at 800%) was exported in 20 minutes.
Con Interface is not as straightforward as it could be
VSDC exposes a lot of information. And a good amount of that information is non-essential. That results in a slightly cluttered interface that can get in the way of actually editing the material. Similarly, some workflow conventions are dated. For example, cutting a clip needs a separate interface. All of that combined ends in having to learn a lot more about the software before it can be used.
