Editors' review

When creating YouTube videos or compiling those taken during a vacation, the need for editing software arises. 4Media Video Editor for Mac functions capably, but with a high price tag.

With a full price of $49.99 for the complete version, the program's free trial only allows five uses before requiring the upgrade. The native installation finished quickly and without any problems. With large buttons containing easy-to-understand graphics, 4Media Video Editor for Mac's main functions were easy to distinguish, even for a novice Mac user. Working with actual video files was also simple, with a basic drag-and-drop setup. Once selected, there were a number of formatting options for conversions organized by device and file format. The program's design is simple and efficient, but outside of basic editing, the functions are limited. The full version, even with its price near $50, doesn't add new functioning but simply lifts the usage limits. In terms of output, the finished videos came out well and did not have seams or jumps between spliced clips. But compared to many native editing programs, such as iMovie, 4Media's features are limited.

Those who don't have native video-editing software already available on their Mac, need a capable software option, and aren't dissuaded by a not-insignificant price tag may find 4Media Video Editor for Mac a good option.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of 4Media Video Editor for Mac 2.0.1.20130104.

    "Simple editor, inaccurate clipping"

    January 15, 2014   |   By jcouncil

    Version: 4Media Video Editor 2.0.1.20130104

    Pros

    simplicity
    ease of use

    Cons

    Inaccurate cuts. ie: When you set the start and end time, it adds seconds to the start and truncates the end.

    So cuts are hit and miss. Even though there is a place to enter the exact mm:ss for start/end times.

    There seemed to be inaccuracy in the displayed time (ie the same point in the video would report as a different mm:ss at different times)

    No way to check final output size without saving the file, so that is time consuming if you need to hit a target size.

    After using up my 5 trial cuts/exports to try and get a clip the right size, start/end points I gave up and downloaded VideoBlend for free. Slightly different approach, but more accurate, with a "check" and "preview" option to see the final saved output.

    Summary

    Would be a great little utility if they fix the accuracy issues, and change the price-point. I'd spend $25 on this utility if that was resolved.
