Plenty of time has gone by since we all used Windows Movie Maker to start off in the world of video editing. It was the next step in our personal evolution after mastering image editing thanks to Paint. But nowadays, there's a wide range of programs and applications that belittle those works of art we managed to create with that Windows tool. If you haven't got access to such a complete program like Adobe Premiere, you can now make use of tools that are much cheaper and easier, of the likes of this Movie Edit Touch.
With Movie Edit Touch you can edit your videos wherever you go.
The free version of this program may be a bit scarce but it will fulfill our expectations when it comes to completing the most basic video enhancement and montage tasks. All in all, we can basically create videos, whether mounting one or several clips, photos or even recordings captured straight from our PC's camera. We can add music and carry out basic enhancements, such as modifying the brightness and contrast, rotating the image 90º, modifying the audio volume, carrying out a simple transition or crossfade, etc.
With the premium version, at a reasonable price, you'll have access to many more functions:
- Mount videos frame by frame.
- Automatic or manual color and image optimization.
- Dynamic camera movements for photos (Ken Burns effect).
- Adjust videos to a certain length.
- More transition effects.
- Templates for video effects.
- Possibility to insert texts and edit them.
- Intuitive title editor.
- Export your creations in HD.
If you're a Windows 7 user you'll have to forget about using this program, as it's only available for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Another disadvantage has to do with the fact that it lacks its own tutorial so you'll have to resort to external pages if you want to look something up. However, it's so intuitive that you might not even need a guide.
How to use Movie Edit Touch?
Using this program doesn't require a steep learning process. The main menu offers us the possibility to insert videos or images, although once we're working on our project we'll be able to add other clips. Projects can be viewed on a timeline or following an outline, with all the tools in the left-hand-side column. By right-clicking anywhere on the screen, we'll be able to open the lower menu to load another project, save the current one, export a movie, add clips or photos and, obviously, purchase the full version.
