Editors' review

This no-frills utility makes it a breeze to split and join video files of various formats. HT Video Splitter & Joiner's good-looking and straightforward interface ensures that even novices won't have trouble cutting sections from movies. You can precisely mark start and end points, chop your fragment, add it to the clipboard, preview it, and repeat the process until you've extracted all the content you want. Then, you simply click the join icon and the application goes right to work rendering your new file as an MPEG, AVI, or WMV file. The Autosplit option will be useful for burning a DVD movie onto several CDs. Though it's essentially a one-trick pony, HT Video Splitter & Joiner makes a nice pick for both new and experienced video editors.

    "EASY video editor is really easy to use."

    October 13, 2010   |   By bil2006

    Version: Honestech Easy Video Editor 3.0

    Pros

    Its simplicity is one of its strong points, the other is the ability to handle files that Windows Movie maker won't recognize.

    Cons

    It crashed the first time I used it.

    Summary

    It seems to be the only inexpensive solution to the inability of windows to recognize the most frequently used video files.

    "Ok To Use, But Too Slow"

    October 21, 2009   |   By ayarrell

    Version: Honestech Easy Video Editor 3.0

    Pros

    Nice Interface
    Easy to Use
    Quickly Installation
    Nice interface
    Support for popular file types

    Cons

    Slow when converting from one format to another.
    Converts even if you want to keep the same format after editing.

    Summary

    I like the user interface and the three-step process to editing and converting video, but I found this program was slow when converting video compared to freeware found on the Internet and attempt to convert an MPEG back to MPEG format. In addition, it would be nice if the program didn't attempt to reconvert an MPEG that you would like to keep in MPEG format after you made edits, instead of just stitching the cut poritions back together.

    I tried this out for about 30 minutes and removed it from my PC. I installed it and tried to edit a simple home video and couldn't get it to work.

    Didn't work.

    Summary

    Don't bother with this one.

    Pros

    Nothing to like

    Cons

    Did not function, no help menu, even if it did work in the trial mode it would be too basic to be very useful.

    "Utterly Worthless"

    June 21, 2009   |   By GATOR-HATER

    Version: Honestech Easy Video Editor 3.0

    Pros

    Drag and drop is only good feature.

    Cons

    Hangs up more often than it works. Sometimes will just quit working and Vista will
    close it. Puts in special effects between files to be joined whether you want them
    or not. Can only handle limited number of video types.

    Summary

    Read the first review, I give it a ditto and then some. The first time I tried this, I
    joined three short files, no problem. Then I tried to join ten small files and it hung up.
    Second try it quit working. Third try quit working. Fourth try it quit working. Then I
    quit trying.
    Too, it put special effects between each clip. Each had to be individually deleted (no
    delete all option that I could find) and each time I deleted a special effect I was
    automatically returned to the beginning of the clips. Do yourself a favor, do not,
    repeat, do not buy this without trying it first. Or, do yourself an even bigger favor
    and don't buy it or try it.
    If you've got #39.95 burning a hole in your pocket, send it to me. I don't have a
    working video editor, but then, Honestech doesn't either.
    By the way , I tried giving this zero stars, but the review program forced me to enter
    at least one. So did. But I did not want to.

    "Good Intentions, but what happen to QA?"

    June 10, 2009   |   By rxfillpharm

    Version: Honestech Easy Video Editor 3.0

    Pros

    I like the drag and drop capability. Very easy to cut unwanted frames and insert new ones. The effects & transitions are ok too.

    Cons

    Hangs Excessively, so lost lots of work. Non-standard gui behavior. Final action to burn was confusing/awkward.

    Summary

    If you're going to use this, BE SURE TO SAVE after any edit. An autosave feature would be terrific since it hangs so often. If you click in its window before the last action is finished, it will hang. I had to redo so many times because of unexpected hangups. What should have been an afternoon of work because days! VERY very frustrating. Cannot alt+tab to the window. Non-standard operations, such as can only scroll by click on the actual scroll bar versus clicking in the scroll area. Funky text editing, but lots of great fonts. Where is the qa department? Also, called their tech support about a problem, and the guy said "not happening to me", and offered no help.

    I used the trial version, so yes it was free. I don't think it's quite ready for prime-time, but still fun to use. Don't rely on this product for anything other than fiddling around.
