If you are anything like me, then you have subscribed to a lot of video channels which are nothing more than amateurs who know how to make video better than can. Chances are, all they do is point the camera and edit it, but the mystery of video editing may allude the beginning video user. Fortunately, the Movavi Multimedia Software has you covered.
In case you haven’t noticed, it was brought to my attention that this software existed, and so I did the 7-day trial. From the moment that the software downloaded, the window showed up with a very instinctive interface.
How instinctive is this? Well, I have always wanted to make videos, and back when I was at CES 2018, I wanted to do some kind of video spot on playing Pokemon Go while I was there. Of course, I wanted this to be “raw”, so I just did some footage of me walking down the strip, somewhere near the Palazzo/Venetian/Mirage area. I had seen other YouTubers do this, and I had about 8 or 9 small video clips that I filmed in the order that they are shown.
So the only problem I had was how I was going to stitch these clips together. Thanks to Movavi’s Video Suite, all I did was hit the “Add Video Files” button and upload the clips in a row. They were pretty much stitched together.
All I needed was just a Title Screen, and it was also very easy to make. I just needed to type the right words, and there it was. I probably could have done more work on this, but I was pretty impressed with what it could do in a very short time.
I didn’t really want to make an ending credits sequence, but I remembered that I had taken some video footage of the Bellagio fountain playing “Viva Las Vegas” from the King himself, and I might as well make good use of that. Just to let you know, it was very easy to crop video clips, and the minute and one half of video was down to ten seconds. Again, it was easy to drag and drop that vid in there.
Now, there was only one thing that I wanted if I could get it, and that was transitions. As it turns out, I just hit a button, and the transitions were put in automatically between my clips. What I finally got was something like this:
You can see way below that I was able to save my video project, and then upload it to YouTube. I can tell you that it was pretty easy, and I think it is incredible how easy it is to do this.
I haven’t even got into some of the features. I think it is strange that when I put in a DVD to watch, the first thing that Movavi did was ask me if I wanted to put it somewhere. I am definitely going to have to get into the particulars of transitions like stickers and the like. Hopefully, they won’t give the video a look that is amateurish, but I could probably say that about my current work:
Anyway, I really feel like Movavi is the video editor for me, and I hope to do it on more video endeavors. I might not be the next YouTube star, but hey, at least I have the tools to do so.
Now, if you want the Movavi Video Suite, it costs about $79.95 for a Personal License, and $169.95 for a Business License. I highly recommend heading over to Movavi’s site if you are interested in learning how to make videos and looking over at what else is available to, while you are at it.
