The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 2.3
VSCD Free Video Editor offers you much more functionality than meets the eye. It not only allows you to edit and add creative filters and effects to your videos, but may also create new video streams by appending already existing ones or by blending your favorite photographs into one continuous video, complete with transitions, video and audio effects, text, etc.
YouTube video downloading, disc burning, and video conversion are just some of the extras that come with this tool.
The program supports all well-known video and image file formats, including MPEG, AVI, WMV, M2TS (Blu-ray HD video files), MKV, MOV, SWF, FLV, JPEG, BMP, TIFF, etc. This versatility, combined with the program’s intuitive interface and all the extra functionality that you will rarely find in similar “free” video editors, make this tool worth checking. No user should be afraid to download and install this full-featured editing tool, as it is equally easy to use for both the beginner and the expert user. Both will find good reasons to stick to this editor – a project creation wizard for the inexperienced ones, and the possibility of tweaking a wide range of video, image, and audio parameters for the most adventurous ones.
VSCD Free Video Editor comes with an interesting set of audio and video effects, transitions, and filters that will give a pro-looking creative edge to your new projects. These cover both basic video effects – such as grayscale, autocontrast, autolevels, equalizer, etc. – and more creative ones, such as blur, emboss, diffuse, or pixelize, among many others. Video conversion processes are fast and reliable, and – what makes them more interesting – fully customizable.
Finally, it is important to highlight some of the extra tools provided. The YouTube video downloader will allow you to batch-download as many files as needed just by adding the corresponding URLs. This is actually a YouTube download manager, so you can decide which video goes first, which can wait, and which ones needs resuming. The Disc Burner allows you to create both media and data discs, with a specific option for DVD burning. The Video Capturing and the Screen Capturing tools are also worth mentioning. You can then use the images and video streams captured using these utilities as input for the extensive functionality offered by VSCD Free Video Editor.
