Movavi Video Editor

CNET 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.

    "Great tool for combining multiple audio & video tracks"

    March 22, 2014  |   By michielvans

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 9.0.3

    Pros

    - Able to combine multiple audio and video tracks
    - Many visual and transition effect for video and photo
    - You can export to all relevant video formats
    - Integrated sound and video recording
    - Easy to use

    Cons

    - Haven't found any yet

    Summary

    I've been using this program to create a video for my mother's 60th birthday. I'm new to video editing, but I find this tool very easy to use. It has a lot of different options, its very versatile, but still it is very usable even for beginners. I love the different effects that you can use to transition between pictures, or to spice up your images. Also love the picture-in-picture tool. Great product, highly recommended!

    "Say WHAT?!?! Awesome software"

    March 17, 2014  |   By FunLGGreen

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 9.0.3

    Pros

    Pros: Adjustable video file size, adjustable video and audio possibilities unlike any other software that mess it up! Multiple different types of formats to convert too! Also has a way for you to even do this to DVD's, Audio Only, Videos, and more! You can even adjust your framerate so your video looks more fast and less laggy, no complaints from me, these guys are professional user friendly people, great live support, awesome products. For anybody who uses FRAPS and have a HQ video with a big GB file size, these guys are definitely recommended and trust worthy to keep your quality and your audio as well as the frames all in one place, you have go to try this software out!

    They are workable for certain things and you guys shouldn't miss this awesome opportunity, get going, do it and don't stop. 7GB? No problem, only 7 minutes for a high quality video to be turned from 7GB to even 2GB to even a MB, if you convert it to a MB, it will take 4 hours, but that is of course extremely normal!

    Cons

    No cons, completely great professional straight up.

    Summary

    The first time I tried this software, I was lost but then I started reading and instantly I knew what to do, the words are in plain site unlike other software that don't show you words to understand, this software is easy to read, easy to understand even for a 15 year old. You guys need to get this software, download it, use it, upload with it(To facebook, google, twitter.) This is a good deal for such complete awesomeness, thank you guys for making this software as now it is easier to convert than using others, and thank you Tanya for giving me support on the subject as I got lost, confused and kind of random.

    Go go go, grab it, run it, try it, buy it, kick it(Not literally), share it, do something instead of reading this and just go get the superb software, what are you waiting for? You are wasting your time to have such great software.... You're still reading this? Stop reading, get it, get it, I can repeat this all day wasting the time you could have this software, and I am not kidding:P

    "UTTER GARBAGE"

    February 8, 2014  |   By sionikati2

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 9.0.3

    Pros

    that's funny.

    Cons

    It removed all sound after editing.
    Settings are not intuitive, even for someone who's used video editors before.

    Summary

    The video doesn't contain any music or added sound or anything copyrighted. It's just people talking in my home. Why the sound's gone is impossible to track.

    "Movavi Video Editor is easy to learn"

    January 8, 2014  |   By collinsconcepts

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 9.0.3

    Pros

    Easy to learn, some other editing programs are so hard to understand how to use if you are not used to video editing

    Cons

    some formats are not supported, but all the most common ones are, so not really a big issue

    Summary

    All in all very happy with this program, Movavi Video Editor is a winner for me after trying quite a few others

    "Great product for Windows!"

    December 8, 2013  |   By Mythic53952

    Version: Movavi Video Editor 9.0.3

    Pros

    There is no need to buy Sony Vegas or anything. This program is much easier to use!

    It's got a timeline view just like I hoped for and I had a blast putting my videos together.

    Cons

    Clearly, I don't see any problems with the software except when it saves my video files, I get a crash dump occasionally.
