Download.com Staff Feb 24, 2013

When creating YouTube videos or compiling those taken during a vacation, the need for editing software arises. 4Media Video Editor for Mac functions capably, but with a high price tag.

With a full price of $49.99 for the complete version, the program's free trial only allows five uses before requiring the upgrade. The native installation finished quickly and without any problems. With large buttons containing easy-to-understand graphics, 4Media Video Editor for Mac's main functions were easy to distinguish, even for a novice Mac user. Working with actual video files was also simple, with a basic drag-and-drop setup. Once selected, there were a number of formatting options for conversions organized by device and file format. The program's design is simple and efficient, but outside of basic editing, the functions are limited. The full version, even with its price near $50, doesn't add new functioning but simply lifts the usage limits. In terms of output, the finished videos came out well and did not have seams or jumps between spliced clips. But compared to many native editing programs, such as iMovie, 4Media's features are limited.

Those who don't have native video-editing software already available on their Mac, need a capable software option, and aren't dissuaded by a not-insignificant price tag may find 4Media Video Editor for Mac a good option.
