Getting Started With Video Editing
VideoProc has some very useful editing features. This is the main menu of the software. To get started with editing our first video, click on the ‘Video’ icon.
Adding a video
The very first step is to add a video to edit. To add video, click on the ‘Video’ icon on the top. Then look for your video file and add it. If you are looking to add a whole video folder, click on ‘Video Folder’ and select the folder. Alternatively, you can add a video by simply dragging and dropping the file.
Once the videos are added, they will be shown on the video list. Here you can view the file name, video resolution, video duration, and the codec information.
Editing the video
To edit the video, click on the ‘Option’. This will open up a new window. The first tab is ‘Format’. Here you can set the video quality, video codec, frame rate, resolution, aspect ratio, bitrate, audio codec, and sample rate. This is better left at default unless you know what changes to make. The main magic happens in the next tab. Click on the ‘Edit Video’ tab to move on to the editing window.
In the edit menu, two windows are playing the same video file. The left window will show the original video while the right window is the preview window where all the edits will be shown. Below the video window are some editing options. Lets us check them out.
Audio & Video
The audio & video tab gives us the option to rotate and flip the video. You can also change the playback speed of the video from here. Audio volume can be decreased or increased to up to 400% using the volume slider. If there was an audio delay during the recording, it can be fixed by using the Audio Delay slider, and if you completely want to disable the audio track, it can be done by ticking on the Disable All Audio Tracks checkbox.
The Effects tab provides you with some interesting filter effects such as Grayscale, Noise, Mirror, Vignette, Blur, and much more. There are also some color correction options that let you edit the brightness, contrast, hue, gamma, and saturation of the video.
Subtitles can be added to the video using the Subtitles tab. You can either add your own subtitle file or you can search it on the internet as well.
Cut allows us to make single or multiple cuts within a video. This is helpful when you want to cut out unwanted parts from a video. To make a cut, use the green knobs to specify the video duration and then click on the ‘Cut’ icon. You can make multiple cuts if needed and they will be merged together later on in the render.
Crop lets us crop the window. To crop your video, click on the ‘Enable Crop’. Then hover your mouse over to the Original video window and then adjust the position of the crop. To be more precise, set the position by adjusting the numbers from the Position menu.
Watermark can be added to your videos using the Watermark tab. To add a watermark, simply click on ‘Enable Watermark’. To add a text watermark, type the text, then set the color and font, and set the position of the watermark on the preview window. Image watermark can also be added by ticking on the ‘Image’ checkbox and then selecting the image file.
Once all of the edits are finished, you can either click on Done or click on Name & Tag on the top to set the title and description of the video file.
Now that you are back on the main video processing screen, you are almost set to render your first video. If you decide to make some changes to your video, for example, you want to edit your watermark, you can simply choose the Watermark option from over here which will directly open up the Watermark tab. If you want to delete any effect, it can be done by clicking on the red delete icon.
Setting the Target Format
To set the target video format, hover your mouse over to ‘Video’ on the bottom. Here you can choose from various video formats such as MP4, MKV, AVI, etc. Similarly, the audio format can be set by going to the ‘Music’ tab. If you want a device-specific video format, you can do so by clicking on the ‘Device’ tab and selecting your device from the list.
Rendering the video
The final step left to do is to render the edited video. To render the video, click on Run. Make sure that ‘Hardware Acceleration Engine’ is enabled to make full use of the GPU Acceleration. Once the render is finished, it will be available in the output folder.
The Toolbox has a bunch of useful features to try out such as Denoise and Deshake for GoPro footages. There is also a 3D-2D converter that can convert your 3D stereoscopic video to 2D. You can also make use of other features such as Gif converter, Fisheye, and more.
This covers up the video processing part of the software. In the rest of the review will be briefly checking out the other features provided in VideoProc.
DVD Conversion and Backup
If you have an old DVD lying around and want to make a digital copy of it, you can do so by using the DVD conversion feature of the software. Simply insert your DVD in the DVD drive and click on ‘Disc’.
The software will automatically detect the DVD and list it for you. Select the disc and click on Done.
Once the video is listed, just follow the previous steps. Click on Edit and you will be greeted with the same editing menu as earlier. Once you are done with the edits, click on Run to render the video.
This is yet another useful feature that allows us to download videos from various websites. Simply click on ‘Add Video’ and paste the video link. Then select the download quality and then click on ‘Download Now’.
If you are looking to record your desktop screen or your webcam, be it for a presentation or for a gaming video, you can do it with the help of VideoProc. To record your screen, click on the ‘Screen’ icon. If you are running a multiple monitor setup, you can choose which screen to record by selecting the monitor from the bottom left. To record just a specific part of the screen, click on ‘Crop’ and specify the recording area. Then click on ‘Rec’ to start recording. You can also record your webcam or screen and webcam easily. There is also a webcam background remover feature that can remove the green screen background from your webcam which is pretty useful.
