SUMMARY:

Although AVS Video Editor 7.5 is a simple, basic video editing software, because it lacks some features other similar apps had, it didn’t rank highly in our review. It’s perfect for novice users since it has a tutorial mode once you first start it, guiding you through the editing essentials. The quality of its exported videos is poor and it only has one video editing track you can use, which is not nearly enough for creating any advanced project.

COMPLETE REVIEW

AVS Video Editor 7.5 is a solid video editing app that lets you create and edit footage you can later export and share with your friends and family. Although it is rather easy to use, the lack of certain basic and advanced tools keeps it from being more alluring to potential users.

Features

When you start AVS Video Editor 7.5, the app opens with a form of tutorial mode, or a guide that quickly goes through all the features and tools at your disposal. All these info pop-ups link to the online knowledgebase located on the AVS’ website. This is a great way of getting to know the program so you lose less time on having to figure everything out by yourself.

The interface guides you through the video editing process step-by-step showing you how to import your clips and add certain preprogramed objects, effects and transitions. It also shows you how to modify the audio in your file. Since you can switch between modules, you’re given higher flexibility and creative freedom. This feature can especially come in useful for beginner users who are still learning the ropes to using this editor.

The editing space is organized in the standard timeline/storyboard workflow. The timeline shows you a linear overview of your video, while the storyboard mode is simpler allowing you a more detailed overview of all the objects in your project. It’s important to note that switching between these two modules is done with just one click.

Although you only have one track you can use to edit your video, you can add an unlimited number of effects, transitions or audio effects as you wish. Since other video editing software in our review offers dozens to unlimited video editing tracks, the fact that you are limited to one can be a serious issue if you want to modify a more complex video that requires more editing lines. Comparingly, AVS has one of the larges libraries of preprogramed objects and effects you can use to personalize your projects. You can also choose between several different text templates you can add anywhere in the video.

Over the course of our review, we tested each video editing app by creating a 45-second test video project. The app imported the file and finished creating the video in under 80 minutes, which is just over the category average for this test. Although this result is average, when we tried to export the finished video project, AVS couldn’t produce a working video file. In order to get to a functioning video, we had to convert our source video into MP4 and repeat the process. Also, once our video experts played the exported project on a high-resolution HDTV, the footage was distorted and there were many imperfections that could impact your viewer experience.

Once you’re done with creating and modifying you video, AVS offers a few options to export it so others can enjoy it as well. Standardly, you can create a stand-alone video file in any of the ten supported formats or you can decide to make a physical copy by burning your files onto a DVD/Blu-Ray. You’re also given more than 70 options to fully optimize your video for playback on smartphones, tablets or consoles.

Features:

  • Process Various Video Formats
  • Speed Up HD-Videos Editing
  • Slideshow Maker
  • Video Stabilizer

Price:  $59.00

Performance

Although it could have many more features and video editing tracks in its workflow, AVS Video Editor 7.5 is a decent video editing software anyone can learn how to use with ease. It offers guidance first time you start the program, and it has a large objects, effects and transitions library.
