Premiere Elements is positioned as a program for amateur video editing. However, it has many options, which are not usually present in such applications. For example, it is possible to change settings for each filter and effect directly on the timeline app. Using the mouse, you can create key points (Ctrl click) in the right places, so that the effect parameters will be changed over time. Moreover, these key points also, in turn, can be modified by the Bezier curve. Likewise, it is possible to speed up or slow down playback without any restrictions. Like the Photoshop Elements app, Premiere Elements includes the Organizer module. It allows a few simple operations like photo album, calendar, collage or a disc cover creation. But the most interesting feature is the instant video creation tool. There is no need to launch the main program interface, everything is done in Organizer. The user just selects the clips and template to create the movie. It is worth remembering that a preliminary analysis of the video clips takes a lot of time and resources. It is a long process, during which the program searches for faces, captures the change of plans, movement, analyzes the sound changes. On the basis of these reference points the line installation is built. It is worth noting that the program is indifferent to the processed video format. Freezes and crashes that have happened in past versions, is practically impossible in the current Premiere Elements release. In addition to many other options for exporting the project, Premiere Elements offers the creation of a web-DVD. For such project generation you need to perform all the same operations as in the preparation of conventional DVD-ROM: to create a menu, to specify the markers (or let the program generate them automatically), to pick up the soundtrack for the menu. However, the finished project is not written to disk. Premiere Elements converts the video content to the flash format. The menu itself is stored as a file in FLV format. The program creates all the files necessary for the correct operation of the menus and video playback within the browser. This format of online video has several advantages over conventional upload to YouTube or similar services: using the markers, the viewer can quickly navigate to the video location, and the menu itself gives the project a finished look. Note that web projects on DVD can be saved in high resolution.

Pros :

  • Huge number of filters and effects.
  • A lot of sharing options.
  • Guided Edits feature.

Cons :

  • Slow rendering.
  • No screen cam feature.

These days there are a countless amount of software that allow the user to do video editing, from simple and essential as the most professional and technically complicated.Movavi deserves to be considered a good video editing software that is positioned in the middle between entry level and intermediate level.

Pros :

  • The strength of Movavi is definitely its incredible ease of use, at first glance it quickly becomes very user-friendly, the interface is well-designed, simple with little possibility of interaction in terms of layout but is very explanatory and well interpretable and understandable even by a user who has never done video editing.
  • The interface consists mainly of the video preview with its own progress bar and buttons to play or rewind the video, from exploration (where you will see the objects to include in the video, or effects, etc.), and at the bottom of the page there is the multitrack timeline section where you will have the opportunity to use and import multiple video tracks, audio tracks, and each of these can make the classic changes in terms of volume, length of clips, effects, etc. You can also scroll and zoom the timeline, cut and make editing at will.
  • The main buttons are well highlighted, as the import of media files, 3D video, capture by cams, direct recording etc. in the section of the effects you can see a fairly complete list of the most common effects like filters, transformations of various types, effects and color corrections, adjustments, distortions, rotations, crops and much more.
  • You can also include the texts within the video and select and use different types of fades.

Cons :

  • Every minus point that comes to mind may be related to the fact that it really is not a professional tool, but if you keep in mind that it is a software that is not aimed at experienced users, but users who want to start to approach the world of video editing is well balanced in terms of cost and functionality.
  • Prices are clearly listed on the official website

Pinnacle Studio 17 is my favorite mounting software because it is fast and versatile, As I'm a filmmaker and video editor it offers me the power and speed needed to create video and multimedia professional-looking HD and 3D. The manipulation and media managing are very accessible.These are the prices of the different versions:Pinnacle Studio: $59Pinnacle Studio Plus: $99Pinnacle Studio Ultimate: $129

Pros :

  • A processing speed and encoding up to 10 times faster, with support for the latest formats and processing technologies.
  • The support 4K Ultra HD.
  • A new Live screen capture features to record what is happening on the screen.
  • A cleaning function and audio reinforcement with iZotope Music and Speech Cleaner.
  • 7 The presence of Red Giant plugins.
  • More than 2000 2D and 3D effects with the primary management points:
  • The effects and templates are provided with the software, so we had to buy them separately sometimes. In fact, Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate offers the best effects of video editing software. And include in particular the Red Giant Filmmaker Toolkit is a suite of three effects with advanced treatments colors. Indeed, other software also claims to offer effects worthy of a movie studio, but those of Pinnacle Studio 17 Ultimate reach another dimension.
  • Ever faster of imports.
  • Ability to view the timeline and the source clip simultaneously.
    Export and processing of stereoscopic 3D video.
  • Improved interface.
  • Unlimited number of tracks
  • Many possibilities of sharing like Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, iPad, Apple TV, Xbox and PlayStation.
  • The library items are easily identified by 4 color code (blue for the media, purple for projects, green and yellow for collections for content).
  • The solo button is finally disabled by default.
  • The .XMF files are imported correctly.

Cons :

  • Still no Multicam, Motion Tracking.
  • No improvement titrator.
  • I had some issues with the export of my videos especially when I add more effects. Then I had to go back and check which sequence has effected problems, and it's a waste of time.

A slide show with photos is a great way to preserve the memories of major family events. Using DVD Slideshow Builder you will be able to locate pictures in the proper order, to add the comments to each of them, to provide the music for a project and to burn it to DVD. The work with DVD Slideshow Builder is divided into several stages: creating the slideshow, adding a menu to DVD, previewing the menu and the slideshow and finally burning to disc. Each phase is represented in the program window as a tab so you can view the slideshow at any stage of its creation or, for example, to go burning not adding the menu (if you don't need it). Interface for slide show creation is quite convenient and flexible. The user can select one of display modes of the project: Storyboard or Timeline. In the first case, each photo or video (that can also be added to the project) is represented as a rectangle with a thumbnail snapshot. It includes the info about the time during which it will be played. Rectangles of smaller size placed between the photos represent the transition effects. Clicking on this rectangle will lead to opening the new window with the effect settings. Here one can change the duration and select the effect type. By the way, in this window you can change the duration of all transition effects in the project. On one DVD, you can burn more than a thousand photos, so it's possible that after making a slideshow there will be still quite a lot of space. If you use DVD Slideshow Builder, it won't be lost because the program can create several independent slide shows within a single disk. In this case, links to each project will be placed in the disc menu.

Pros :

  • Several slide shows on the single disk.
  • Videos are supported along with the photos

Cons :

  • Performance issues with the big projects

If you are looking to move up from a more limited, free, image editor like Google's Picasa, Elements is the right place to start. It may be all you need, and if it isn't, the skills you learn by using it will transfer easily to the full version of Photoshop if you decide later that you need it. Thanks to its impressive feature set, reasonable pricing, and ease of use, we are giving Photoshop Elements 12 our Editors'Choice award.

The interface is straightforward enough for a kid to comprehend with expansive recordings that straightforwardly demonstrate what tasks they perform. All the features are available from the begin screen itself, so you don't need to explore much. The Movavi Video suite is a complete video capturing and editing tool that is unquestionably going to be exceptionally well known because of its key characteristics set and its affordable costs.

In short, Wondershare are offering some tremendous opportunities to be creative, the deluxe version of this software is possibly the only tool you could need to create slideshows that make the memories that matter to you last a lifetime.  Not only that, but the price is well below what you would expect to pay for software of this quality (and with this many features).

Wondershare DVD Slideshow Builder Deluxe targets beginners who want to create nice-looking slideshows with minimal effort. Although it tries to be an all-in-one solution, it lacks the video editing options that are indispensable for making great presentations. Besides, it's quite expensive.
