Editors' review

Good video editing software can take something that looks like it was shot with a cell phone and turn it into a slick, professional-looking production. Movavi Video Editor is good video editing software. It can edit, cut, splice, and alter your videos, clean them up, sync sound and music to images, create customized titles with text and animation, split audio and video tracks, and much more. It also captures screen video and audio and saves video and still images in a range of widely compatible formats.

Movavi's main interface is an up-to-date dark gray design divided into three parts: a video player, a tabbed control panel, and a work bar displaying open files. File, Edit, Playback, and Help menus round out the taskbar. Tabbed controls make it easy to import, edit, and export videos, create text for titles, insert captions, create transitions, and even include special effects. The main display functions like any media player, only with optional special effects such as different transparency levels and a sliding time line control that supports up to 100 different and separate audio, video, and title tracks. The player's picture is clear and accurate, too.

Movavi Video Editor's free 30-day trial version puts a watermark on the files it creates and installs desktop icons without asking. The full version costs $39.99, a lot less than some well-known video editors that don't offer much more. It's ready for 64-bit versions of Windows, including Vista. If you're looking for an affordable, comprehensive, easy-to-use video editing suite, Movavi's got it.

    "VERY UNSTABLE!"

    October 03, 2013   |   By cmurphylife

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 4.0.2

    Pros

    When it works it's fairly user friendly and has a pretty nice layout that's simple in design. The problem is, it doesn't work very often. Read on...

    Cons

    So many to list!

    This program always crashes!

    If you add just a few things to the time line the program can't handle it and locks up or gets really choppy where it makes it impossible to work... and then it will crash!

    There's an auto save function but I save my work at least every 1-2 minutes with this program. Multiple times when the program has crashed and I opened up the file, none of the work I had manually saved was saved! ***!?! That is a MAJOR problem and I can't trust a program that doesn't save work!

    Exporting a project takes way too long! At times over 6 hours! That is ridiculous! exporting a 15-20 minute video should not take longer than an hour.


    It jumps around a lot when editing.

    Did I mention it crashes a lot and only about half of the time saves your work!

    That's after only a week of use, I'm sure there are other things I haven't even found out about, and I'm never going to because I refuse to use this program anymore!

    Summary

    I got this program as a substitute for Adobe Premiere on my laptop while I wait for my main computer to be upgraded. I didn't like Movie Maker and this looked much more advanced as something to use for the next month or so. Have to say after only just over a week of using the program, it's been a complete nightmare! Constantly crashing, not saving work, very slow, can't handle too many things added to the timeline, extremely slow exporting and just very unstable all around.

    I won't use this program anymore because I can't trust a program that doesn't save work. If a program can't even do this simple function it is a COMPLETE FAIL!!! I can handle the odd crash, but it crashes every 5-10 minutes (sometimes more often)! Just a miserable program and an awful experience overall. Save your time, sanity and money (I wasted mine, luckily it was only $40 - but this program is NOT worth paying a dime for) and keep looking elsewhere! I'll just be waiting now until I can get back to Adobe Premiere, a much superior program in every way to Movavi Video Editor.

    Movavi should be ashamed of creating such a terrible and unstable program and take themselves out of the video editing business. Or at least not charge people for this crap! How can you stand behind such an awful program?!

    Trust me, stay away from the Video Editor!

    1/5
