The Best Video Editing Software for Enthusiasts  March 4, 2016 – 04:14 am

OB Roundup

The fundamentals of consumer video editing software haven't changed much over the past few years: You want a program that lets you import video, stills, and sound to your PC from whatever camera or source you have, easily join and trim what you shot, and maybe add some transitions and cool effects. Also unchanged is the need for fast, crash-free performance on non-professional hardware. Finally, you want the software to be able to deliver your creation to the places you care about, whether that means to a file format suitable for your mobile device or big-screen TV, or to an online community like Facebook, YouTube, or Vimeo.

But if that's all you need to do, you could rely on the simple video editing software that comes with both Windows—the much-improved Windows Movie Maker, and with Apple Macintosh computers' iMovie app. The programs in this roundup let you go far beyond those tools, offering multitrack production for advanced effects like overlays, picture-in-picture, and keyframe effect animations, which give you ultimate control over what your video FX will look like, and where and when they appear in your finished movie. Indeed, capabilities found in professional software costing hundreds of dollars like Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro is making its way into these consumer packages, with the added benefit that they're generally easier to use.

I'm happy to report that this class of software as a whole has gotten more reliable and much faster—addressing performance and stability problems that result from video editing's vast demand on a PC's hardware. In addition to that, some very cool new video tricks have come along since we last rounded up products in the category. Corel seems to be leading the pack in these new capabilities with both the recently acquired Avid Studio and its own VideoStudio Pro and, which recently introduced motion tracking that lets you add an object or effect to something moving in your video. The company also leads in tools that help you create stop-motion movies, now supporting remote DSLR control.
