Vidiot is a non-linear video editor targeted for home video editing. It supports operations like compositing, scaling/rotating, adding transitions and titles, trimming, etc.
- Non-linear video editor
- Video converter
- Video compositing
- Cut/Move/Drag and drop
PROS: Drag and drop your video files in (Once you create a sequence), can import AND export in MP4, adjustable fades, opacity controls, no malware, multiple track capability and you can unlink audio and video. CONS: No keyframes. For the casual editor it's not a big deal but for me that makes it unuseable. It also has very few effects. SUMMARY: This is the best free editor I've ever come across. It blows fancier free editors (Which claim to be amazing but aren't) out of the water. It's easy to use (Once you look at the help file. The key bindings section is very informative), edits well, has good export quality. I edit with Premiere Elements 11 but if I didn't have that I would use this.
(Version 0.3.8 - 1820) Amazing program. Very easy to use; if you don't understand something just refer to the help file included, it basically most of the program. The timeline feature is very neat. The developer is nice and responsive. :) Could use a few more features though, such as: -Custom input of time for an image/video to be displayed. -Higher framerate support (240 FPS hopefully) -Slowing down of clips to 0.25x / Speeding up to 4.0x
Extremely easy to use, with a well designed interface. Great work!
Installs fine, then upon launch I get a "Vidiot is not a valid Win32 application". Oh well, looking forward to a version that works on my XP machine.
I have years of experience with other video editors. I tried opening a simple AVI with this one, but could not figure out how to get to the expected "timeline" interface. I also tried creating a new timeline from scratch but the program just crashed. (Windows 7)
