How many times have you fall into a situation when you want to edit your movies or any of your favorite videos? People search every where for any free utility but even if they find one, those video editors may not be up to their liking.

Out here at Aarambh, finally I decided to compile a list of top 10 free video editing softwares so that our readers may get benefited to larger extent.

1) Windows Movie Maker - Windows Movie Maker is so easy a child could use it. It gives you the tools to create, edit, and share home movies.

Movie Maker comes preinstalled with Win XP SP2. Also, you can download from this location.

2) WAX - Wax is a high performance and flexible video compositing and special effects software. The idea for Wax is to be very general purpose and flexible in video compositing and effects, so that you can compose your dream video sequence with ease everytime. Wax can create 2D & 3D special effects and can work in two modes – as a standalone application which would appeal for home users/beginners, and as a “plug-in” to video editors/NLEs which would be more useful for professional editors.
