VEGAS Movie Studio is a powerful video editor which comes packed with essential functionality.

Movie Studio is an essential video tool designed for novice users to get their video content online as quickly as possible. When you first start the application, you are given a choice of intended final product with presets for Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook or simply exporting to your hard drive.

The program imports footage directly from digital and analog camcorders, action cams and more, right up to 4K/Ultra HD.

Video novices might start with adding media content. You can simply add your video files, audio tracks and other data and then drag them on to the timeline below for further editing. Add transitions, add a Vegas effect to your video content and then mix your audio.

More experienced users can take manual control, editing down to frame level, applying new image stabilisation software, powerful colour correction tools, accurate chroma key technology, a versatile sound editor, and a host of highly configurable transitions and effects.

Once you're happy, the finished movie can be exported as a video file, transferred directly to a mobile device, burned to disc or uploaded to Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and more.

Verdict

An easy-to-use editor aimed more squarely at novice video enthusiasts.
