Leawo Video Editor
Leawo Video Editor is a professional software application built specifically for helping users edit videos.
Although it comes bundled with many dedicated parameters, it sports a clean and straightforward layout that allows you to import files using “drag and drop” operations.
The program works with a wide range of file formats, such as MOV, MPG, FLV, MKV, 3GP, MP4, WMV, DAT, MP3, OGG, WAV, JPEG, GIFF, PNG, and others.
What’s more, you can record video streams from capturing devices connected to the computer, record audio streams, as well as capture the screen activity to a video file (entire screen, fixed region, or selected window).
Leawo Video Editor gives you the possibility to edit videos in the timeline panel by adding multiple titles, video and audio files, as well as splitting and cropping clips. Plus, you are allowed to check the clip properties, preview the files, as well as undo or redo your actions.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to apply special effects (e.g. blur, brightness, color balance, deinterlace, denoise, diffuse, distortion, sepia) and automatic filters (e.g. contrast, saturation, white balance), and flip or rotate the items to different angles.
The application features several transition modes (e.g. Fade In or Out, Warp, Wipe, Spiral, Snake), and lets you pick their duration. The title text can be customized in terms of font, size, color, alignment, duration, speed, and opacity.
When it comes to exporting options, the tool lets you save the edited clips to FLV, AVI, MPEG, MOV, or other file formats, convert them to a format compatible with mobile devices (e.g. Apple, Nokia, Samsung), or burn them on CD or DVD.
During our testing we have noticed that Leawo Video Editor accomplishes a task quickly but it eats up CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer may be hampered.
All in all, Leawo Video Editor proves to a reliable video editor that bundles a decent feature pack, which should meet the requirements of professional users.
