For video editing, it is generally possible to use practically any software program.

The choice of which depends on user preferences and experience. Some programs are free, some are paid, some are easier to use whilst others are more complex. Most of the paid programs can be downloaded on a trial basis for free, unlimited use within a certain short time period.

One of the most popular easy to use programs is PINNACLE, then there is the more complex semi-professional SONY VEGAS program and finally the more complex programs such as Adobe Premiere (PC) and FinalCut (Mac).
