    "VEGAS Pro has been an industry-standard, video editor. ShadowPlay uses video clips so it's editable with VEGAS Pro. I'm already used with it when it comes to video editing."

    "I recommend this software even it's pricey. You can do all of video editing tasks with Adobe Premiere since it has complete tools. The expense is worth it though as a video editor."

    "While searching at forums, I learned that I can edit my ShadowPlay footages with Avidemux. It decreases the file size to a more ample one. AVI is a giantic file format compared to MP4. My rig will cry less due to its smaller size ;)"

    "Before you do an actual editing, I recommend you trim down the size of your recording to ShadowPlay. Just use free softwares like OpenShot. It will save you time and RAM size since ShadowPlay footages are really heavy."

    "I'm proud of my Genji team-wipeout and I saved it on ShadowPlay. I tried to upload it to Youtube but it's too big. A lot of dudes from Reddit said trim it down. So I looked for a free video editor and I ended up with this one."

    "I'm at lost what to do next. Do I cut and convert or convert and cut? NVIDIA's new game capturer is confusing."
