This powerful and intuitive video editor is the perfect companion for casual or dedicated content creators. With versatile and easy-to-use editing tools, the app has the capacity for professional-looking videos.
All-in-one video studio
The software is remarkably feature-rich and can simplify your video content workflow. You can import or record original footage. You can do detailed editing, from transitions and audio effects to splitting or trimming clips. Even the production and distribution aspects are integrated, with plentiful final rendering and social media sharing options.
Gone are the days of detailed, hand-keyed animation. ACDSee Video Studio incorporates seamless keyframing tools for total control of media states. It’s similar to the Camtasia Studio keyframe system. Implementing pre-packaged or custom animations is straightforward. Tons of effects and filters are available too.
Telling your story in video form has never been easier. Simple tools let you scale, rotate, tilt, and distort your footage. You can layer in still photos or secondary footage to create visual compositions. You can also fiddle with adaptive blending and opacity to provide subtle visual cues.
Perfect for beginners
ACDSee is ideal for video editing rookies. Not only does it have a gentle learning curve, but it’s also packed with training materials. The company provides a series of tutorial videos, produced by veteran video editor Alec Watson. It includes basic explanations of the environment, simple editing for beginners, and chroma-key (green screen) techniques.
While the software is capable of producing smooth, polished material, it works well on surprisingly low specs. Most video editing apps require costly setups to operate. Meanwhile, this app requires 2GB of hard disk space, barely 512MB of VRAM, and 4GB of RAM.
Intuitive video editing workhorse
The app is a surprisingly full-fledged video studio, capable of producing sophisticated, professional results. It can be a great fit for content creators, tutorial videos, instructional materials, and more. However, you need to buy a license after the free trial, making free open-source alternatives more enticing in the long run.
