Video editors tend to fall into one of two extremes – basic versions that are simple but lacking in features, or more advanced editors that are designed for professionals and can be very technical and confusing. In many ways Movavi Video Editor for Mac strives to find the middle ground between these extremes, and provide an editor that is easy to use, yet has powerful features.
Emphasizing the User Experience

All the tools and features in Movavi Video Editor for Mac are designed so that they can be accessed easily. Right above the ‘Timeline’ is a bar containing tools to process and edit the footage directly, while other features are organized into tabs located on the left side of the interface.
The emphasis that Movavi Video Editor for Mac places on the user experience extends beyond the interface however, and its features are designed so they can be applied intuitively. In most cases you can utilize the features that are available by clicking on the right button, dragging elements into place, adjusting sliders, or performing other simple actions.

• Compile videos by merging clips together and arranging them in the right sequence.
• Split videos into segments and trim out any unwanted parts.
• Transform the frame and orientation by cropping or rotating it.
