Video Editing Software Comparison Chart

This comparison chart is an important tool which will provide you with a clear view of the features and specifications of some of the most popular video editors. Utilization of the video editing software comparison chart will save you time (and possibly some heartache and pain) by assisting you in reaching a purchasing decision.

We focused our research on Adobe, Corel, Muvee, Nero, Pinnacle, Power Director, and Sony. These are the products which we’ve reviewed and we know them like the back of our CPU.

Is the product with the most check marks always the best? Not necessarily. As we always say, this site is all about your needs. The software with the most check marks may have more features than you need. The comparison chart doesn’t tell you which title to pick. It assists in guiding you to your decision.

When you have completed your comparison return to our Compare Page or visit our Software Page for additional details.
