Let me point out that 90% of video editing software programs has one of more effects that you can apply to a video. Even Windows Live Movie Maker has the ability to apply visual effects.
But, like I said, I was curious. I can see in certain limited situations where this might be handy for novice users or those that have software that doesn't make it easy to apply these types of effect.
This is version 1.01 or something like that so I'm taking that into account.
Here is what it can do:
- Change aspect ratio of videos
- A visual method of cropping videos
- Simple adjusting of brightness contrast
- Effects like old movies, video in television, Sepia or Black & White
- Export to MP4 and other formats.
Applying the effect was easy enough. Exporting than file to an mp4 video took some time. The video was six minutes and the export took almost 50 minutes to render.
When I tried to open it in QuickTime Pro it couldn't open the video. In fact, I was taken to an Apple page with a list of add-on codecs I could use to open the video.
Except I have no idea what the codec was in the first place.
I'm going to try again in a day or so. I want to experiment with an .avi and standard .mov videos to see if that makes a difference.
