Editors' Review

+

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.

Pros

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.

Cons

No effect or transition editor: This is the only feature that we feel is missing; with it, this app would be even better.

Bottom Line

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.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Video Editor 3.6.0.

"IF I COULD RATE "minus stars" I WOULD"

July 17, 2015  |  By PAKALUS CAMEL

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Editor 5.1.1

Pros

Nothing. Do get get this piece of crap it ain't free, did hours of editing and found ginormous watermark on video after the export. Complete bulls***, I will call Shrek to penetrate through the bodies all who made this program right up so it comes out of their mouths.

Cons

EVERYTHING! SHREK IS ON HIS WAY

Summary

Waste of time.

"Not quite there yet"

June 17, 2015

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Editor 5.1.1

Pros

Easy to use, similar to iMovie with a bit more features.

Cons

Not put together properly, some breakdown of audio and things just don't fit together perfectly.

Summary

I was doing a video in iMovie and realised I couldn't add text wherever I wanted. Decided to get a dedicated video editor so did some research. Wondershare had its fair share of haters and lovers, but I decided to take the plunge. After I got it, I realised it feels exactly the same as iMovie, but isn't put together as perfectly. I had crackling audio and had problems adjusting the transition effects duration. After spending a few hours on it, I called it quits and regretted not trying it before i paid for it. If you're not too fussy, wondershare is ok for people without iMovie. If you have mac, don't waste your money.

I solved my text problem. Go to photoshop, remove the background and add any text you desire and save as a transparent PNG. During this time, I also discovered some new features in iMovie.

"Pretty package, not good for talkies."

April 09, 2015  |  By ofenjen

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Editor 5.1.1

Pros

Lots of fun features: fades, transitions, picture-in-picture, etc.
Would be perfect for videos with no voice track.

Cons

Audio/Video don't sync when editing and occasionally jumps around after splitting video clips.

Summary

I'm a long-time vlogger that was in need of a few more options than offered by Windows Movie Maker. My videos tend to be pretty straight forward with an intro, an outro, occasional photo insertions and a little bit of music, so all I want is a basic video editor with a couple of bells and whistles that isn't too complicated to learn. Wondershare seemed to have everything I wanted. The features are fun to play with and easy to understand, with drag and drop and fun transitions, picture-in-picture, etc. Unfortunately, the audio/video from inserted videos do not play in sync while editing, which makes the editing process not only frustrating but impossible if you're working on a speaking video like a vlog. When pausing to edit, it's impossible to tell exactly where the progress line has stopped and I've even had it jump backward a few seconds on the timeline. Accurate pausing is a feature that's absolutely crucial if you want to edit out pauses, mistakes, etc.

After doing some searching around about the syncing issue to make sure the problem wasn't on my end, I found several useful reviews online that include the exact issue I was experiencing as a "con."

I'm giving Wondershare Video Editor three stars because it would be fantastic for non-speaking videos. If Wondershare can resolve the audio/video sync issue during editing, I would definitely give it another try. Speaking videos are all I would use it for, so until then, it's definitely not for me.

January 06, 2015  |  By yangyueet

 |  Version: Wondershare Video Editor 4.8

Pros

This software is very easy to use and has great set of tools.

Cons

Video Editing Software need computer with high spec.

Summary

When my mac computer died I ended up using a Dell in the mean time to try to do some movie editing. After fighting with all the programs available, I found Wondershare and it seriously saved my life. I was able to edit my movie on time and under budget. There was no learning curve, I was able to download and start editing the way I like instantly.
