Generally speaking video editors have a steep learning curve, and require a lot of experience before they can be used effectively. While there are some that are more user-friendly, they often tend to only have basic features, and the scope of what they can do is limited.


Movavi Video Editor is a video editing software that is designed to break that mold and aims to be user-friendly but with a powerful range of features.

Intuitive Interface and Features

The interface in Movavi Video Editor is clean, and uses a timeline-based structure. All of its features are neatly organized into tabs or as convenient icons that are in plain sight, so that it is easy for you to navigate and find what you’re looking for.
