Video editing software is software used for performing the post-production video editing of digital video sequences on a non-linear editing system (NAE). It has replaced traditional flatbed celluloid film editing tools and analogue video tape-to-tape online editing[1] machines.

NAE software is typically based on a timeline interface paradigm where sections of moving image video recordings, known as clips, are laid out in sequence and played back. The NAE offers a range of tools for trimming, splicing, cutting and arranging clips across the timeline. Once a project is complete, the NAE system can then be used to export to movie in a variety of formats in context which may range from broadcast tape formats to compressed file formats for the Internet, DVD and mobile devices. As digital NAE systems have advanced their tool set, their role has expanded and most consumer and professional NAE systems alike now include a host of features for color manipulation, titling and visual effects, as well as tools for editing and mixing audio synchronized with the video image sequence.
