Wondershare Video Editor offers you high-end quality at an affordable price. It combines a comprehensive and well-designed interface with a plethora of video and audio effects and features, including brand new slow and fast motion effects and various voice change effects. This excellent video editor allows you to create pro-looking DVDs complete with menus, effects, transitions, subtitles, etc. If you prefer, you can turn your home movies into more portable video files, converting them into formats that you can play back iin your iPod, iPhone, iPad, or upload to popular Internet sites, such as Facebook or YouTube.

Together with a longer list of video effects (as many as 50), this new version of Wondershare Video Editor comes with a professional timeline-based interface that will help you to edit your videos in a more accurate and intuitive way. To help you choose among the many effects provided, these have been grouped into various categories – text, visual effects, PIP (Picture-in-Picture), transitions, and intro/credits. PIP effects are also new in this version – they are a collection of animated images of all shapes and sizes that are placed on top of your video to make it funnier, look more elegant, or simply to enhance it somehow. All the other categories have also been upgraded with the addition of new effects, though – functionality wise – they do not differ greatly from what we have seen in previous versions.

Working on the timeline is certainly a great improvement and one of its main assets. There are specific “tracks” for the audio, the video, and the PIP effects, and mixing them in real time is as simple as dragging and dropping media files and effects at the exact point in time you want them to appear. The images themselves (either video or image files) can be easily edited and enhanced, too. This comprehensive editor comes with all you need to crop, trim, split, merge, rotate, or tune-up the contrast, saturation or brightness of your videos and photographs. The results can be previewed at any time using the program’s built-in video player.

Adding subtitles, extra audio tracks and any other extra features you can think of (personalized texts, credits, titles, intertitles, etc.) is so simple and gratifying as everything else in this tool. Certainly worth trying.
