AVS Video Editor is intended to create your own films, regardless of your expertise. If you doubt in your abilities as a “filmmaker”, you may be glad to know that the first time you use the application, you will receive help in a tutorial way including links to various videos.

The interface of this tool responds to its workflow, which is fortunately not very different from other applications of the same type. The whole idea is based on importing objects and arranging them in a given order. In this respect, one thing that helps a lot is that there are two modes to organize contents, which are the storyboard and the timeline. While the storyboard is a lot easier for inexpert users, the timeline mode certainly increases the possibilities of creating a more professionally looking video. Once the objects have been arranged, you can easily add text. Luckily, you can also apply nice transitions and effects. Likewise, it is possible to work with various layers and tracks, which allows such operations as mixing two films and replacing the original sound track.

The application supports importing multiple media types, including video, images and audio. Likewise, it lets you share the result in many ways and formats. Thus, your films can be burned to a disc, uploaded to the cloud and exported to practically any portable device. Also, the tool is very rich in terms of supported target formats, which even include high definition profiles.

In general, AVS Video Editor can meet the expectations of undemanding users. It is suitable for home users mainly if they do not mind some minor video rendering issues. Although this product is more affordable than the flagships of this area, you should also know that you can get similar features at a lesser cost.

Martin loother The easiest-to-understand video editor I've ever used. Great video effects, nice output results. Plus it has additional tools in one suite like DVD burner, etc.

Allard de Goede First of all: I never had any crashes in Windows XP with WinAmp because of this plugin. Not in the last version in WinAmp (5.6), nor in the previous versions. Second, but most important: this plugin is the best plugin I ever had in WinAmp. And it's the best for crossfading I ever encountered. I only get nag screens which I can't disable. For that I would have to download from the Sqrsoft website, but the link to download the software directly (to disable the nag screen - every couple of times you play music with the plugin opens the SqrSoft page in your default internet browser) from website SqrSoft doesn't work.
