Edit Videos, Take Screen Grab And Create Panoramas With VReveal

Advertisement

If you have been looking for a video editing software with some unique features then try vReveal. It is an application for editing videos, creating panorama images (from videos), and grabbing video snapshots. It comes with many basic video editing features, and is easier to use than Windows Live Movie Maker. Using vReveal, you can add titles, fix sharpness, color and contrast issues, stabilize a shaky scene, and save edited videos in numerous video formats. Read on after the jump for our full review.

By default, vReveal scans your Videos, Pictures and Desktop directories for locating media files. However, you can select specific directories as well.

Once a video is detected, click Edit to start editing the video. Using the available options, you can add/remove video frames, adjust video sharpness, change aspect ratio, add/adjust effects, white balance, saturation, focus etc.

Edit

Other than editing videos, you can also create panoramas from imported video frames.

Once you are done editing the video, it can be saved in WMV or AVI formats. It is worth mentioning that vReveal has both paid and free versions, and the option to edit and save videos in HD-format can only be achieved using the paid version. Furthermore, video editing and saving the output video is limited to 240p and 480p in free version, and other formats like 720p and 1080p (HD formats) require bucks. However, you can can edit and save HD videos to lower resolutions, hence circumventing the limitation to some extent. While saving a video, you can also adjust the video quality by clicking Advanced button, and moving the Quality slider.

Save

You may also share your edited videos on Facebook and YouTube, using the sharing buttons at the bottom of vReveal interface.

Share

Although vReveal is quite a handy and easy-to-use video editor, which can be of immense convenience for novice users, it does come with a few drawbacks. These include the above-mentioned editing restrictions, and the fact that it displays ads during installation as well as an Upgrade button on the main interface. On a personal note, I found vReveal editor to be a capable application with easy options and acceptable limitations in its free version, as it does not display watermarks (except a few seconds at the start of the video) for the saved videos, and provides video editing for videos up to 480p resolution, which should be sufficient for most casual users. The program works on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

    The “freeware” version inserts a watermark which makes the software ultimately useless to most people, and it’s so feature crippled that no one who’s even the tiniest bit serious about what they’re doing would tolerate it.  That makes it, really, in effect, DEMOware… more of a trial than freeware.

    Please don’t do this to your readers.  Don’t be so desperate to have something to write about that you betray your readers’ trust, as you’ve done with this story.  Just because the maker of the software calls it “freeware” doesn’t mean that it is.  Software makers lie.  You haven’t noticed that?

      Big words and too long overdo response.

      Almost no one says thanks for their work but it’s easy to complain.
      Trust, betray, desperate… sorry, it sounds stupid.

      By the way, big thanks AT for all your hard work.
      love you

      • Kris, I’ll bet you believe that no one should keep score at youth soccer games, either.  Don’t want to harm the little tykes’ egos, after all, by exposing them to the notion of — heaven forbid — winning and losing.  Wouldn’t wanna’ accidentally prepare ’em for real life, after all, would we.

        Group  hug.  Kumbaya.  Peace at all costs… and all that kinda’ disingenuous crap.
        Constructive criticism of one thing which AT does is not the same as suggesting that AT doesn’t do a good job overall… or have you ALWAYS been an all-or-nothing kind of person.  If AT weren’t worth reading, and if it didn’t mostly do a good job, I wouldn’t subscribe to its newsletter and read its articles.  Neither would you.  Neither would anyone.

        I’ve thanked AT plenty of times… when it deserves it.  When it doesn’t, and I think that it’ll both help others, and help AT be better, I point it out, and explain why.  Like any web site, sometimes AT hits, sometimes it misses.  When it misses, I’m quite certain that it can take the criticism; and that it doesn’t need any “love you’s” in order to feel good about itself.  

        Stop trying to make everyone happy in life.  I demeans you.

        Oy.

    Gregg,

    If you want attention, go dance in a circus, maybe someone will through you a coin or a bone.
    Don’t know why people with bipolar disorder bother commenting on blogs.

    I would love a trim feature.
