Cut and merge videos without quality loss, add effects, filters and titles, embed soundtracks, adjust the sharpness and color balance, stabilize recordings and more. The tool works with numerous formats such as AVI, FLV, MPEG, MKV, DivX, MOV, etc.

Regardless of where your video files come from, their file format, and their level of quality, Movavi Video Editor is capable of turning them into stunning video files, complete with themes, transitions, effects, and your favorite soundtrack. The entire process takes place in an intuitive timeline-based interface with a built-in media player for you to preview the result.

Movavi Video Editor offers you two editing options – New Project and Quick Video. The latter opens Montage Wizard, a 5-step guided process that will let you load your files, add a theme, a background soundtrack, and various transitions, and to preview and export the result to a wide choice of file types or to various online options. Undoubtedly, this is the best option for home users with none or very little experience in creating their own video discs. The former of the two options – New Project – will open up the program’s full-featured editor and its timeline.

There is where you can unleash all your creativity and make use of Movavi Video Editor’s wealth of filters, effects, transitions, etc., to produce a true pro-looking disc. The timeline is divided into various layers, one for each media type supported. Whatever videos you load into the program will appear in the central blue area, neatly concatenated one after the other. Of course, you can move them around, change the order, mix them in various ways, and remove those you’re not too happy about. Above the “video layer”, so to speak, you’ll find the “text layer” for you to add titles and other text-based materials. Below the video line, you’ll see the audio layer, where you can create and synchronize your own soundtrack.

Adding effects, transitions, titles, stickers, filters, and other elements is done easily by dragging the selected item to the timeline and dropping it into the desired spot. The other editing tools provided (crop, clip, rotate, equalize, etc.) are also equally simple to use, and you can always preview the results using the program’s media player. Once you’re happy with your new video, you can save it in any of the numerous codecs supported or share it directly to YouTube or to other online platforms easily.

Movavi Video Editor can also be used to crate tutorials or gameplay videos thanks to its recording capabilities, which allow you to capture any activity on your screen in an intuitive way. With specific interfaces for different types of users, this video editing tool is much more than a video converter and merger – it comes with all the features and utilities you need to turn your homemade videos into a completely new file with a creative touch.
