Video Tools – Free

The video tools in this section are all free. Some of them have their limitations though, but the basics of the job get done. After you have tested out these free software and if you are looking to add more effects to your videos, you might want to check out the ‘paid’ version in this category.



1. Windows Movie Maker – Windows only 

What is it: Windows Operating Systems Video Editor

What it does: For those who have Windows operating systems, Windows Movie Maker will make as a good choice to edit your videos.

Limitations: it can only be used only for the most basic editing and creating. Effects you can create with this software are limited. Try out the editing and creating first and see if you are comfortable with the features.

2. IMovie – Mac only 

What is it: Mac video editors

What is does: This platform has quite a number of features which are only found in video editors which cost you. We must say it is pretty impressive for an editor cum creator that comes with the system. They even made videos about it on Youtube. Go have a look. You’ll see the features available, including timeline and sound editing.

Limitations: It won’t be able to record your screen.



1. Gilsoft Screen Recorder

What is it: As the name implies, screen recorder.

What does it do: It captures what you see on screen and what you hear/say simultaneously, and saves them as compressed video file in real-time. It is usually used to create software demos, capture streaming videos and record game plays.

Limitations: It just records your screen. Won’t be able to zoom in, zoom out and do all the fancy stuff you can do with the paid screen recorders like Camtasia Studio.

2. CamStudio 

What is it: Screen recorder which can record audio as well.

What does it do: Captures screen and audio recording all in AVI video format.

Limitations : It won’t be able to put all the videos that you have together because this is not a video editing software. For a screen and audio recorder, it does its job pretty well for a free software, we must say.


1. FreeMake 

What is it: It is a video converter. Usually, you have to pay for software like that.

What does it do: Freemake Video Converter converts video free to AVI, MP4, WMV, MKV, DVD, MP3, iPad, iPhone, PSP, Xbox, Android phones. Transform video to MP3 with one click! Rip & burn DVD/ Blu-ray. Convert YouTube to MP3, MP4, AVI, etc. Free, safe, guaranteed result.

Limitations: None as a video converter. For something that is free, it does a lot!


1. Audacity 

What is it: It is a Voice Recorder. This is a must-have tool in Internet Marketing.

What does it do: It records your voice, after which you can edit with simple tools within. This has become our go-to software for recording voices to fit into products, etc. They are also constantly updating their versions.

Limitations: The interface may seem intimidating at first. But there are only a few features that you will use frequent. Everything becomes easier after you edit your first voice file.
