What Is the Best Lightweight Video Editor Software for PC?

Many people may use video editing editor to edit a video more or less in daily life or on the work. The needs vary a lot from different tasks. For example, if you want to do things like picture-in-picture, adding complicated after effect,then Premiere Adobe CC is the tool for the job.

But if you just need to trim videos, add minimal filters, you may not need anything heavy like Premiere Adobe CC anymore. You may prefer a lightweight video editor that works fast and won't bring any pressure to your computer.

However, when you start with asking for help from so-called "lightweight" video editor in the market, many problems arise:

① Small in size, but still computer resource hogs.

② Confuse the beginners with complicated default.

③ Failed to recognize your files with limited supported formats.

④ Failed to meet the basic editing needs with limited functions.

Above are some problems I met when I was a green hand with zero editing experience. And luckily, I downloaded VideoProc, a powerful lightweight video processing and easy video editor software, and it solved all problems at once.
