By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

Many video editors on a Google search state their software is absolutely free-to-use, and then surprise you with a watermark at intro, outro, or throughout the entire video, which would be prohibitive to some. This article is going to be transparent and honest with our readers. So, I've carefully picked up and going to run through 10 best video editing software with no watermark for different levels. Let's jump right in!

#1. VideoProc

Platform: Windows, macOS

I must admit VideoProc is a good one and worth trying out. One important tidbit to know is that your final video won't be watermarked in VideoProc. Moreover, it has a layout that is well set up, clean and modern looking, which you can run it with less training.

With VideoProc, you can easily cut, crop, flip, add subtitles, logos, filters, regulate footage's playback speed, and enable a stabilizer, noise reducer, lens correction. You also can switch back and forth between the source media files and the converted files via its built-in video transcoder. Last noted but equally significant, VideoProc's full GPU acceleration can radically improve import and export speeds, helping your aging machine have a great response.

Resolve has to be the best non-linear video editor that I used. Since it has evolved into a robust and all-around post production system that brings advanced color correction & color grading, video editing, visual effects and audio mixing together, which fits the need for whether individual artists or collaborative team.

Newly added to Resolve 16 was the Edit page, which is designed for a rough cut or extremely tight deadline, while ensuring the video quality throughout the whole editing.
