Blackmagic Design SDI and HDMI for input and preview monitoring. Screen, webcam and audio capture. Network stream playback.

    • Movie maker is a much more simplified product and allows easy recording of narration and much easier timeline editing. While this would work for some scenarios it cannot be used to the same extent as Windows Movie Maker. Guest • Aug 2015 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's free and more complete than movie maker RadzelMar 2017 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Movie maker was brilliant at taking film stills and stop motion frames in and outputting a video. SHotcuts "says" it does this, even on the forum - "tick the properties box and it will import the rest of your folder of stills..." It fails every time. Out of 45 frames, it only ever imports 5 maximum whereas Moviemaker just did the job. Guest • Mar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • It can actually do everything Movie Maker does. The problem is the UI is not very intuitive and you need to watch a Youtube tutorial and take notes so you don't forget it. But once you figure it out the workflow is really fast. It also works with all sorts of formats including MP4. Guest • Nov 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • The free version contains everything you need for editing movies. Sure, the free version can't edit 4K and only has "limited" (I have never found these limits) functionality but if all you need is cutting video from your holiday it is perfect. Also, the learning curve is not that steep. TheagurgMar 2017 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Professional Software For Free. Easy Workflow. Best Color Grading. Easy To Learn. Premier Pro & Final Cut Pro are the only editors that compare, but they are costly. Guest • Apr 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • It's VERY COMPLICATED, they changed the interface and added a whole lot of jargon. So maybe it's a good program, but someone like me who's made hundreds of Windows Movie Maker videos over the years and wants that same 'look', will not want to use Lightworks, priced or no.
