It is a video editing program for Windows. It is a set of tools that allow you to cut, join, split, crop, and add effects to any video. It supports all the known video and audio formats, including HD. Due to its simplicity, it is mainly aimed at home users or those taking video editing as a hobby.

The applications included in this pack are organized in a menu that shows up when you launch the program. The video cutter, joiner, and splitter use separate interfaces, while the effects, watermark, subtitles, and cropping tools are integrated in a single GUI. Working with any of these tools is really easy and does not require any previous knowledge.

If you need to cut or remove a segment of a video, the editor lets you choose between a simple or advanced video cutter, or a batch cutter in case you need to work with multiple videos at a time. Selecting a section to remove is simple enough, and you can do it with the sliders or by setting the times manually for more precision. The advanced cutter gives you the possibility of selecting the cutting mode and save your video into another format. With the video splitter you can divide your video into segments of a predefined duration, by file size, or into a determined number of sections. The video joiner, in turn, works in a similar way, letting you merge videos of different types into a single file.

Besides, the application offers numerous possibilities to give your video a stylish, personalized look. It lets you apply visual effects like black and white, embossment, mosaic, or adjust brightness, contrast, and saturation. Likewise, you can add subtitles or protect your videos with watermarks. Any changes you make to a video can be seen instantly using the in-built player. When you're done editing, you can save your file with a different format choosing from the numerous list of output profiles provided and change aspects such as video quality and size.

In short, this video editor from Gilisoft offers the home user all the necessary features to edit video in the easy way. There is practically no video format this tool can't handle. The program can be evaluated for free, but the trial version processes only one minute of a video and adds watermarks.
