Movavi Video Editor Elevates Your YouTube Game Michael Kwan January 9, 2018 Extras I just completed my first full year of weekly vlogging and I’ve learned a lot about the creative process along the way. I’ve dabbled in video before — my YouTube channel is over 10 years old — but this was the first time I exercised any sort of real consistency. And even if you have no ambitions to be the next big YouTube celebrity, you’ll be interested to learn about Movavi Video Editor and how it empowers you to create professional-looking video without the Hollywood budget or years of experience. Positioned as the “perfect video editing software for home movies,” Movavi Video Editor is designed to be easy to approach, even for users who may be less technically inclined. The learning curve is short, as they say you can master this software in just 20 minutes. And while you can certainly use it to create a montage-laden highlight reel of your epic vacation in the Bahamas, Movavi is just as capable of editing game footage or helping you put together an unboxing video for your YouTube channel too. You’ve got all the basic features you’d expect from a video editor — like being able to import videos and photos from a variety of sources (like your smartphone, camera or hard drive), move video sections around, add voiceovers (you’ll need to provide your own David Attenborough or Morgan Freeman), and crop your clips as you see fit — but you’ve also got access to a number of other, fancier tools too. You know those Instagram filters everyone loves? You can take the same approach to your movie with over 160 creative filters here. There’s a filter to make your new footage look like an “old movie,” which is perfect for that “flashback” look. Choose from over 100 transitions like cross fades and ripples, apply static or animated title text, and even include more advanced special effects like chroma keying (“green screen”) and slow motion. If you don’t have the time and want the software to handle it for you, Movavi Video Editor can automatically put together the video for you using the montage wizard. The software comes with backgrounds, music and sound effects that you can use in your videos, as well as integrated video stabilization to overcome your shaky footage. The beat detection is really cool too, as it can help to sync the audio “with the tempo of your project.” When it comes to most video editing software, there seems like there’s this great divide between two main categories. You’ve got the free editing software that is severely limited in what it is capable of doing. And then you’ve got the more advanced software that comes with a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s also decidedly expensive and tremendously intimidating for the uninitiated. Movavi’s solution aims to solve this increasingly common conundrum by offering an affordable (even free!) editing suite that’s both robust in its features and actually easy to use too. Click here to download Movavi Video Editor 14 for free for Windows. System requirements are fairly minimal: compatible dual-core processor (1.5GHz), 2GB of RAM (Windows 7/8/10), 800MB hard disk space for installation. It’ll work with compatible integrated graphics too. Should you choose to upgrade to one of the paid versions, you’ll remove the watermark and enjoy free technical support, as well as a 30-day money-back guarantee. Some additional features also include improved video quality, animated objects and more built-in media. Promotional consideration for this post was provided by Movavi Share This With The World!
