Specialized software is required to create a video showcasing something, a tutorial meant to teach people, or even entertaining content for platforms such as Vimeo, YouTube, and many others.

There are many video editing software out there, some of them good, some of them bad. It is really important to choose software that suits your needs.

In other words, the quality of the programs you use to create, edit and finish your video will be reflected in your line of work.

That being said, today we are going to review some of Movavi‘s video editing software. Let’s see what these interesting tools have in store for us.

Movavi Video Editor

Movavi Video Editor is a comprehensive, easy-to-use desktop software that lets you dive into your creativity and develop crazy ideas into awesome videos.

Telling your story and inspiring others has never been easier, thanks to Movavi! The newly refined user interface has all the software’s tools at your fingertips.

Movavi Video Editor comes with two modes:

  • Quick Video: for creating movies automatically
  • Manual mode: for creating movies manually

Quick Video

This mode will automatically create movies based on videos and photos you upload. The process takes only 5 steps:

  1. Upload your files (either photos or videos).
  2. Choose the template that you like: Family, Memories, Love story, Travel, and more.
    • The template will define the titles, transitions, and music in your video.
    • Additionally, you can choose the No transitions theme and customize it yourself.
  3. Choose a soundtrack from the built-in collection, or upload your own.
  4. Preview your video. Insert text in the opening and closing titles, adjust the slide duration, and fill the black bars.
  5. Export the results. You can save the videos in any format, share them online, or continue editing them in manual mode.

Manual Mode

The manual mode gives you full control and editing freedom. You can customize your videos entirely, add your effects and other files, crop, cut, and insert video sections.

The editing space is multitrack, which lets you add up to 99 tracks that you can use in your video, audio, and titles. The handy timelines mark the length of your video.

You can scale it up and down for more precise editing. Thanks to the drag-and-drop style of controls, everything is done easily.

The preview window on the right lets you see the results and adjust the quality of the video for the preview. Keep in mind that higher resolutions will take up more system resources.

Additionally, the preview windows allow you to change the aspect ratio, enable guidelines for placing objects, and take screenshots.

The manual mode contains a series of useful editing-related tabs. Let’s take a look at them, shall we:


In the Import tab, you can upload files from your computer, and record yourself with the webcam or microphone. You can add your files directly to the multitrack, or you can store them in the Media Bin for later use.

How we test, review and rate?

We have worked for the past 6 months on building a new review system on how we produce content. Using it, we have subsequently redone most of our articles to provide actual hands-on expertise on the guides we made.

For more details you can read how we test, review, and rate at WindowsReport.

Additionally, you will find built-in content such as sounds, music, videos, backgrounds, and effect packs.


This tab contains a broad range of image and audio filters, including artistic effects, color filters, blur effects, 3D objects that you can insert into the video.

If you’re a fan of old movies, you can use one of the retro filters to give your work an old-school feel. You’ll find options such as sepia, vignette, grayscale, and much more.

Moreover, the tab also includes a Favourites section where you can find selected filters of your choice. To favorite a filter, all you need to do is click the heart icon.


The Transitions tab contains a plethora of different effects, and even more available on the Movavi Effects Store. Join your clips together with elegant fades to make your video feel smoother.

Choose from parallax, artistic, zoom, circle, blocks, geometric, and many more quality transitions and give your video the uniqueness it deserves.

You can use an animated template to create opening or closing credits, subtitles, or captions, and you can also create your own intro video and save it as a sample.


Another awesome and comical tab that lets you give your videos a heartwarming and cozy feel is called Stickers.

This collection of stickers contains various clip-art objects, arrows, headlights, emojis, and many more cool additions you can find in the store.

Closing thoughts

Interactive and comprehensive interface
Has in-built tutorials for more clarity
Lots of features
Ability to add your own media
Plentiful store
Great for beginners
Limited free trial

We messed around with both programs for a while, and we were pretty pleased with what they are capable of.

We were never confused by the features because most of them have tutorials explaining what they do and how to use them, and the interface was easy to follow.

However, even if the free trial includes all the cool tools these programs have, it is still limited to 7 days. That shouldn’t be a problem, however, since upgrading to premium is totally worth it.

Movavi Video Converter and Video Editor are definitely on our top list of video editors, especially if you’re a beginner just starting on content creation.
