Video editing is something that most of us would at least like to have a go at, but it is difficult to know where to start, there is a lot to consider.

What software do I pick?  What do I need the software to do?  How much can I spend?  Do I want to add special effects?  What is the video going to be used for?  How much experience do I need?

It can be daunting to say the least.

Liquivid

Liquivid is a piece of software that is designed to make editing videos and photos quick and easy.  To make things simpler it allows you to use images and video in a number of files and resolutions, meaning no loss of quality to your captures through the process of editing.  

As well as standard editing Liquivid stands out from the crowd with the ability to tackle some of the tougher jobs in editing, such as noise interference, precise trimming, fishing and stabilization issues.  In fact it is the perfect companion to use when working with action videos!

Editing

Stabilising your video is a great way to improve viewing pleasure for handheld footage or action shots, which can easily be juddery or shaky.  Another problem that filmers can face, especially in low light, is noise.  Noise can best be described as those tiny pixels of different colours that you see in dark images.  It can make your pictures/video seem poor quality.  The program easily takes care of this.

defishing

A fishing effect is when the lens creates a distortion to the image, like the image to the left.  If you have ever used a Fish-Eye camera lens, that is what you achieve.  Of course sometimes you don’t want this distortion in your video, so Liquivid has included the ability to fix this problem.  You can even create what they call a profile for your camera lenses, so you can easily apply changes.

Of course you also have the ability to adjust colours, contrast and sharpness of your content, rotate, trim and even change the speed at which your video will play back.

Modes

You don’t need to be an expert editor to get to grips with the program though, there are two ways that it can be used.  The first is a Basic Editing Mode which enables you to edit your video and images using one click.  If you are more experienced though and really want to get involved in the way that the video is edited you can access the Advanced Editing Mode.  The advanced area gives you much more control so you can fine tune the changes you make.

Verdict

We give Liquivid a thumbs up, it is a lovely program that gives you the ability to perform complex editing with simple processes.  It is available through Steam or via direct download for just £14.99, a price well worth paying in our opinion.  The only thing we would say could improve Liquivid is a Tutorial that allows you to complete tasks with a sample video.
