Dale Donaldson VSDC Free Video Editor will not open using Windows 10 and have tried compatibility troubleshooting, but the troubleshooter just grinds and grinds.

Cameron Hansen I have the same issue. Support is trying to help but nothing resolved yet. Did you ever find a solution?

David I am having the same issue, I contacted support, and they have not been able to help me. It has to be something on their end.

naman

naman I edited my video, but when I try to convert my project it says an error occurred. I don't know why is this happening. The videos I converted previously were easily converted. I don't know what is happening. Please help me.

Brian Reid It worked great the first time I used it, editing a GoPro video from a drone and adding sound (music files). The next time I tried to open it it did nothing. It opens a flash screen like it's starting then nothing, not even errors. Now I have a .bak file that I cannot get into. I already uninstalled it then reinstalled it and it does the same thing. I like the program but I cannot use it if it will not open. Any suggestions? smile

Kat My Preview window disappeared, and the editing software won't do anything because it thinks the window is open. This happened twice, and I can't save my progress once this happens.

KEKO The same thing happens to me every time! If the video is long that happens to me every time. And then I need to do all from start. smile

Mikey Tate Hey guys! I'm trying to add a fade-in effect to my first video clip, but it crashes every time you apply it to the clip on the wizard. Is anybody having this issue or is it just me? Thanks!

Guest I'd pay for this if it didn't crash all the time. Here's the reason its free you guys... it simply won't support a video longer than 15 minutes without straight up dying. Not to mention it takes up 30 percent of my cpu. Which is ridiculous.
You get what you pay for I guess... You pay nothing, you get nothing.

From what I've used, its pretty good. And seemingly quite a pretty vast app seeing as its free. But its extremely limited by memory. If you want to make actual videos ONE TIME and not have to go through it 5 or 6 times until the app doesn't crash long enough for you to save a project, then you should probably look into getting something else.

Guest The program keeps crashing now when I am almost done. I have two small audio clips and one video clip to add. Help, anyone?

Guest To fix VSDC from crashing try to set manually virtual memory in windows, or use already cut smaller videos in Video Free Editor.

Guest To what amount should we adjust the virtual memory? Any help in the process would be appreciated.

Guest Pros:
Absolutely brilliant! Packed with features.

Cons:
Very sparse manual, so you need to have a bit of an understanding of video editting software or be prepared to hunt the net for how to's.
Crashes due to memory problems. Annoying, but mitigated by manually saving your project often. I'm happy to put up with this because I know it will be fixed, and it's a free app with absolutely loads of functionality!

Not having any problems with output quality when I carefully select the codec and quality options before conversion.

Guest What I got out of this was
Pros: It offers the features that a paid video editor would offer, for free.
Cons: You need to research how to use it (just like an actual video editor)

Guest So far, great tool. Much better than a different product I had tried before. This has many parallels to the top photo editing program out there. Takes a while to figure some things out, but even a dummy like me has accomplished the first two objectives I started with. More complex editing will be next.

Guest Good editor but when I save it, it immediately turn into bad quality? Why?

Guest So I tried to make a split screen of my playing multiple musical instruments at once. I did the recording, and set it all up. But when I watch it, I get 2 frames per second and it sounds terrible. You can't make out anything of the sound. Any way I can fix this, or is this just my computer?

Guest Try checking out the audio setting of the software.
You need to set them to the maximum bits capacities (24-bits would be super).
I am currently downloading that editor for the same reason: editing an audio to MP4 to posting it on Youtube without conversion.

Guest The preview in VSDC is always choppy, sometimes with bad audio.

If you mean the output file is like this, then yes, it's your computer.

Guest It was working great at first but now it keeps crashing. I'll have to start looking for something else.
