PROS / This video editor offers unlimited editing tracks so you can make a project as simple or as complex as you wish.
CONS / The quality of the end video is noticeably distorted and distracts from the viewing experience.
VERDICT / AVS Video Editor is a good video editor for both beginners and veterans; however, the poor-quality export removes a lot of the program’s allure.
AVS Video Editor provides video editors with hundreds of transitions and effects. Additionally, you have the ability to add as many video and audio tracks as you need. You can adjust and fix audio tracks and video stabilization for shaky footage. While AVS's video editing software isn't equipped for professional filmmakers, it makes editing easy, and you get the added benefit of being able to create HD movies.
The interface for this movie editing software is well organized. The tools are clearly marked so you can swiftly find the ones you need, which makes editing videos quick. The process is easy enough that you can start working on a simple project right away.
When you start the application, you can add an unlimited number of tracks; this is a flexible feature we greatly appreciate. Typically, the overlay track is a picture-in-picture track, which means the second video appears in a box over your main video. You have the option to add more audio and video tracks if you have a more intensive video project.
The audio effects settings come with tools to amplify, remove noise, equalize, normalize, compress and adjust pitch. Additionally, it's easy to increase or decrease the volume for each track. The audio line has a bar you can move up and down to adjust the sound. If you want to customize the volume control, you can select points on the audio line, making it easy to fade the audio in and out of your video.
When you're ready to share your finished movie, you can save it as a file, burn it to a disc, share it online, or put it on your smartphone or other device. A wizard walks you through the process of creating the preferred output format of your movie.
When our experts examined the exported video, they noted major pixelation that would distract viewers from the video's content. All the amazing tools found in the software simply can't make up for a substandard end result.
With AVS Video Editor, you can create video projects quickly. It provides you with unlimited editing tracks for your main video, effects, video overlay, text, additional audio and voiceover. However, a low-quality export nearly erases all the benefits these tools offer.
