Geared to the first-time non-linear video editor, Wondershare Video Editor provides all the freedom you need to arrange clips and music with a wealth of available filters and transitions. This is a beautiful and capable piece of software.
Effects, transitions, PIP: Wondershare Video Editor features a wide array of effects that become beautifully visible in the timeline. The results we achieved were tasteful, and we would be hard pressed to distinguish them from those of editing software that costs many times more.
Everything in view: You will like the fresh-looking black and purple interface with its well-indicated functions and discreet buttons and graphics. Although there is no dramatic departure from common NLE designs, we found our way around it incredibly quickly, because the playback and timeline panels are always kept fixed -- only the top left panel is taking the form of each function or effect.
Wealth of import and export options: Imported files from four different SD/HD sources were handled with ease. Export options are rich and geared for novice users with easy-to-understand decisions of device, format, social network, or DVD -- each with its own sub-options.
No effect or transition editor: This is the only feature that we feel is missing; with it, this app would be even better.
Wondershare Video Editor stands out as possibly the most beautiful and effective video software we have seen in a long time. It contains all the basic tools you need to enter the exciting world of NLEs. All in all, it brings enjoyment to video editing, and we definitely recommended it for novice NLE editors that want to be creative without the straitjacket of predetermined workflows and templates.
At $29.99, we feel it's a bargain.
