BlazeVideo SmartShow can help you create your own movies. The main advantage of this product is usability. In fact, it lets you produce very simple videos with you just a couple of clicks and a few drag-and-drop operations. The tool has a very nice interface, and, as it is quite similar to those of other similar applications, you will have no difficulty to use it from the start.
The whole process of creating a movie is composed of very easy steps, which include importing the source media files, adding them to the video, setting transitions between them and rendering the clip. And to make things even easier, it comes with a few basic templates and you can even download more from the developer’s site.
As to supported media types, the application allows importing practically all popular videos, images, and audio extensions. Likewise, it supports exporting to several media formats. In this respect, you do not even need to know much about compatibility as the program comes with some built-in presets that are already adapted to the requirements of multiple playback devices.
While it is true that this product is very easy to use, it also has a lot of limitations that make it unsuitable for more complex projects. Just to mention a few, it cannot handle various video tracks and does not allow working with actual timelines. However, it does support such simpler operations as trimming, cutting, and splitting, which I consider indispensable for video editing.
All in all, if you just want to create a sort of animated slideshow that can be played on any device, BlazeVideo SmartShow can be the right tool for you. However, if you need a highly customized video, you had better continue looking elsewhere. It is good to know that the product is shareware and can be tried without limitations for 15 days.
