AviTricks Classic 1.63
An AVI video editor with real-time preview and adjustable effects
The interface of the application is dull and a little complicated to work with at a first glance. Videos can be imported by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" method. It is possible to import multiple clips for processing.
So, you can apply effects which revolve around overlays (e.g. still or transparent image, opaque title, subtitle, movie, GIF animation) and filters (e.g. brightness, light temperature, sharpen, soften, emboss, blur, edge, negative, freeze).
But you can also insert objects before or after the clip (e.g. slow-motion, music-clip base, empty frames, transitions), add pegs and stop points, as well as change the track color.
Furthermore, you can toggle between arrange mode and rubber-band mode, adjust the audio balance or replace the audio track, find a selected object's start or end point, as well as save the project for further editing and configure project settings (e.g. frame size, timebase, compression).
The program requires a moderate-to-high amount of CPU and system memory, has a good response time and includes a help file. However, AviTricks Classic popped up some error dialogs during our tests when we tried processing the audio stream; we were forced to restart the application. Plus, the layout's features need to be simplified and better organized. But we must remember that AviTricks Classic has not received updates for a long time.
