Editing Made Easy: Mastering Movavi Video Editor for Seamless Results.










Movavi’s goal for its video editing software is to enable simple movie and clip creation, avoiding the sometimes needless complexity of the competition. That sounds great, but does it pan out in practice? After all, creating compelling videos often requires advanced tools and capabilities. You also want a responsive program that renders the final product quickly. Luckily, Movavi Video Editor is one of the best apps we’ve seen at packing a lot of capability into an unintimidating interface. For more power, however, check out our Editors' Choice winners for enthusiast video editing software, Corel VideoStudio and CyberLink PowerDirector.

What's New in Movavi Video Editor?

Movavi gets regular updates and new features. If you've already used the software, here's a rundown of what's new in Version 23:

AI Background Removal. AI Background Removal is an effect that's made its way into many a photo editing app and is now making the move to video, where it's more challenging. It also saves you from having to shoot on a green screen.

AI Noise Removal. AI Noise Removal is an important tool for making videos recorded with smartphones bearable to watch.

Direct Upload to TikTok. Despite regulatory concerns, TikTok remains a popular YouTube alternative for social video, so many will find the option to directly upload videos to the site helpful.

New YouTube frames. YouTube is still the primary home for social video, so Movavi appeases users of Google's site with some new bling.

AI Upscaling. This new tool is separate from the video editor proper but rather is part of the included Converter utility. It's super handy for getting those smartphone clips looking sharp.

Interface updates. The updates since my last review include several less splashy changes, such as not linking tracks by default, enabling gaps between clips, and only highlighting the second clip after a split, which makes deleting unwanted segments snappier.

Audio tools. Movavi has both automatic and manual audio fix capabilities as well as new sound effects like Overload, Oscillation, and Vibrato.

AI-powered motion tracking. Motion tracking is the fun ability to follow an object or person around the screen with an effect, object, or even another video.

Color tools. The program now supports LUTs and lets you adjust hue, temperature, and tint. You can also use a dropper to adjust the white balance.

How Much Does Movavi Video Editor Cost?

You can get Movavi Video Editor for a one-time payment of $79.95 or as a $54.95-per-year subscription. That’s a good deal compared with the going rate of $99 to $129 for the likes of Adobe Premiere Elements and CyberLink PowerDirector.The Movavi Video Suite adds a format converter, disc burner, and a screen recording app for $94.95 per year. The Movavi Unlimited plan ($129.95 per year or a one-time cost of $259.95) adds photo and PDF editing.

Movavi runs on both macOS (version 10.13.6 and later) and Windows (from 7 to 11). It’s available in the App Store and the Microsoft Store or as a direct download from the product site.

In a harbinger for performance, Movavi installs about as quickly as a web browser and takes up a very reasonable 280MB of hard drive space. Most consumer video editing software requires more than a gigabyte of storage these days. See the Performance section below for the full specs.

Movavi's Interface

Movavi Video Editor is refreshingly uncomplicated and labels every element clearly. A series of tooltips appear as you first perform actions, showing how to use the application. Buttons down the left rail move you between modes for Importing, Filters, Transitions, Titles, Stickers, and more. The last group includes important features like Color Adjustments, Crop and Rotate, Pan and Zoom, Stabilization, Slow Motion, and Chroma Keying. I’d put those above Stickers (fun as they are) if I were designing the program.

The Import mode includes sections not only for importing, but also the traditional Media bin that includes all project content, as well as for sounds, music, sample videos, backgrounds, and effect packages.

The main section layout of the program resembles that of most video editing software, with a source box at the top left, timeline tracks along the full width of the bottom half of the window, and a preview player at the top right. You can undock only the video preview panel, but the relative size of the other panels is adjustable.

Above the timeline, which doesn’t limit the number of tracks you can add, are buttons for Split, Rotate, Crop, Color Adjustments, Clip Properties, Markers, Record Video, and Record Audio.

Starting a Project in Movavi

You start your video project by tapping the Add Files button. Alternatively, you can simply drag media from File Explorer or Finder. After you add the first media, a tutorial overlay shows what the parts of the interface are for. To add a clip to the timeline, simply double-click it. You can also drag it, or choose to add it to the current position, the beginning, or the end. You can also add it after the current clip from a right-click menu, which is very convenient.

Movavi supports most video common file formats. I had no trouble importing the H.265 content newer iPhones can shoot. You can also use its integrated video capture utility to record from a connected webcam or camera.

Instant Movies

Movavi’s Montage Wizard lets you throw some media at the program and have it build a movie for you automatically, complete with a background soundtrack. You start by choosing Create Quick Video and adding your media. Next, you get a selection of templates like Family, Memories, and Travel. You see a preview of the template’s look and feel before you have to decide on using it. The last step is to choose the music mood you’re looking for before you can preview your video.

Correcting and Enhancing Videos in Movavi

Movavi’s Filters mode lets you apply Adjustments, Blur, Color filters, Vignettes, and more effects. The program provides a good selection of sample video and audio, most of which it downloads after you click on them. A search box lets you find any of the effects or transitions.

Movavi's Audio Tools

Movavi recently added several audio correction and enhancement tools. Autocorrection for noisy places, enhanced voice recording, and recording studio join effects like Overload, Oscillation, and Vibrato. I tried the autocorrect on a windy outdoor smartphone clip. It didn't reduce the wind noise enough by default, but luckily there's a noise gate slider that got rid of that. The voice corrector did a good job removing room noise, desirable for podcasts.

A line on the timeline track lets you lower or raise clip volume, something Adobe Premiere Rush lacks. You expand the Audio Editing entry in All Tools to get to the relevant controls. Impressively, there’s a Synchronization option that lets you shoot from two different cameras—the first step toward multicam editing, which Movavi lacks.

There’s also an equalizer and nine effects, including Echo, Muffled, Telephone, and Robot. Other programs like Adobe Premiere Pro let you simulate different acoustic environments, such as those of a cathedral or stadium, but you can get close with the Reverberation tool. Movavi also includes a Beat Detect feature that adds markers at beat points to help you place edits and effects.

AI Noise Removal is new for version 23. I tried it on a clip filmed at Niagara Falls. You have two choices when doing audio noise removal: Artificial Intelligence and Default. Unfortunately, the AI option resulted in a very unnatural soundscape, and it doesn't offer a strength adjustment slider as the default option does. I was more impressed with the noise reduction tools in Wondershare Filmora.

Movavi Export and Performance

You get a good range of export options in the program, including standards like MP4 and MOV, as well as MKV, WebM, and GIF. You can save audio only to AAC, FLAC, MP3, OGG, WAV, and WMA. Output targeting Apple, Android, PlayStation, and Xbox devices is also on offer in the export dialog. Most interestingly, you can set the program up to directly upload to Google Drive, YouTube, and Vimeo. You get decent but not overwhelming control over technical details like bitrate for both video and audio, frame rate, resolution, and two-pass encoding.

It's Easy to Make Moving Pictures With Movavi

Movavi Video Editor is enjoyable to use, and we recommend it for people who want to create fun, good-looking video productions. Unlike many consumer video editors, it’s not intimidating or overloaded with options, yet it still offers most of the advanced techniques people want, including chroma key, transitions, title text, picture-in-picture, music and audio editing, and even motion tracking. For the most power and performance in video editing software for enthusiasts, check out our Editors’ Choice winners, CyberLink PowerDirector and Corel VideoStudio Pro. For easy editing on the Mac, stick with iMovie, and for advanced work, look to Final Cut Pro. Finally, working professionals in the video industry will likely need to use Adobe Premiere Pro.
