Digital Camera World Verdict

This is the perfect mid-range video editing app to try out if you want to expand your non-linear editing skills from entry-level apps such as iMovie or Adobe Premiere Elements. When it comes to assets such as filters and transitions it gives professional apps such as Final Cut Pro a run for their money. Vloggers in particular will enjoy being able to capture footage from their PC’s camera straight into a Movavi project.

Movavi Video Editor Plus 2022 is a mid-range video editor designed for new and intermediate users who want to turn their video clips into professional-looking productions – and it's a reminder of just how far the best video editing software has come.

In pre-digital days video editors had to play their captured footage on one machine and record the good bits onto another (like copying music from cassette to cassette). Linear editing was like composing a letter on a typewriter – you couldn’t insert new material without starting the whole process from scratch.
