In this article we will take a close look at the Movavi Video Editor. The company Movavi is best known for their videoconverter. But Movavi offers many other solutions for working with video, with photos and sound. They offer solutions for Windows, Apple Mac, for Android and for iOS. And the interface of the software has been translated into many languages like for example German, Dutch, French, Turkish, Italian, Spanish and more. One of the solutions Movavi offers is a professional Video Editor and this is the product we will discuss here on TechnoEdit.
Editing video’s is becoming more popular every day. We see many people, including ourselves, shooting video with their mobile phones or with more professional video equipment. And daily they are posting these videos on Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, on their own website or blog, etc. We know about freelance experts editing video’s for companies and for artists. But using video-editing software is not complex anymore and everyone can do it. So instead of uploading raw video recordings you can make your video more attractive by cutting out the ugly parts, improving the color, have better transitions, change the order of the scenes, etc. And while we are editing why should we not add some great effects, use nifty filters, add some text and combine the video with some great sounding music and voice overs!?
Movavi understands the needs of the video lovers and offers a tool that allows you to create great videos using your own video shoots and / or stock videos. The most important aspect is the user friendliness for you to edit video and create great output. The interface of this editor is easy to understand and you will be able to start quickly. I estimate you would only need 20 minutes to fully understand how to operate this tool. You will be delighted about the creative filters they offer inside the editor (more than 160 filters). And you can choose from more than 100 transitions between the scenes. To spice up your video even more you can use one or more great effects like slow motion, flying objects, color improvement, retro style, picture in picture, blur, tilt and much more.
You would like to edit many videos you recently recorded but you do not have the time for it? Since version 14 the software has a new feature called “Montage Wizard”. This smart Montage Wizard can edit your videos automatically and create an instant movie for you. This will allow you to create a great video montage quickly and you can add the music of your choice.
Let us discuss some technical aspects of this software. The software is available for Windows and for Apple Mac users. And the Movavi Video Editor can handle many video formats like 3gp, H.264, MPEG, MPG, MP4, asf, AVI, DivX, Xvid, Flash, mkv, QuickTime, Mov, QT, WMV and many more. So whatever recoding device you use you can upload the file into the Editor and start editing it. The same applies for the formats you want to use to save the video you created. You can save the video file as a .3gp file or as .3g2, .avi, .flv, .swf, .m2ts, .mkv, .mov, .mp4, .mpg, .wmv, .ogv, .mov, .webm and as a .wmv file. And next to the video formats you can also use a lot of audio formats too like for example AAC files, AIFF files, APE (Monkey’s Audio), Au, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, etc.
The download file size is approximatly 56 MegaBytes for Windows users and 68 Megabytes for Mac OS users (based on version 14). Windows users require 800 MB hard disk space for the installation and keep 500 MB available for ongoing operations. And Apple Mac users need to have 200 MB available hard disk space for installation and another 500 MB for ongoing operations.
You want to try this Video Editing software before you buy it? Great news, this is possible for both Windows and Mac users. You can download the software for free. This trial version of the Video Editor includes all the functionality of the full version. The trial version can only be used for a specified number of days after installation (7 days). Also the trial version will add a trial watermark to the output video. You will be able to try out all the features and options and if you like this software then you can easily remove the restrictions by buying the activation key and you will not have to reinstall the software.
Thankfully Movavi accepts many payment types for you to buy the software. You can pay using Visa, Mastercard, Paypal, American Express or Union Pay.
There is some confusion about the difference between a personal licence and a business licence. Let us explain the differences of Movavi Video Editor Personal versus Business licence. The business licence is a bit more expensive so understandably people prefer to buy the personal licence (but only if this does not violate the local administrative laws). The Personal License can only be used in a non-business environment. So if you are editing a video for personal use then you can get the Personal licence. But if you want to create a video and sell this video or invoice the contractor for your services then you should get the Business license. The functionality is the same for the personal and the business version.
