What do Pulp Fiction, Moulin Rouge, Bruce Almighty and The King's Speech have in common? They were all edited using a software suite called Lightworks. It's a very full-featured professional-grade video editing package that runs on both Windows and Mac.
Believe it or not, Lightworks is actually free for non-commercial use, in a version that's almost as powerful as the commercial one. You just have to remember to sign into their website every 7 days in order to keep reactivating your free licence.
To find out more, and to download the software, head to https://www.lwks.com/ and download the standard paid-for installer. It'll keep working in free mode for as long as you like. The download is 80 MB, and it's malware-free according to VirusTotal. And Web of Trust reckons that the site is reputable too.
Lightworks is a very full-featured product and isn't easy to jump straight into. So be sure to check out some tutorials too, which you'll also find on the web site.
