Review: muvee Reveal Video Editing Software

Since there has been a recent surge in the popularity of vlogging, I have been thinking about trying my hand at it. I was thrilled to be able to try the muvee Reveal video editing software. No, I do not have a video camera yet (unless you count that old VHS model), but I do have a digital camera that does a decent job at recording short videos.

So here it is . . . my debut as a videographer:

I don't think I did too badly for my first time considering I was using a little point and shoot camera, my actress was not taking direction well, and it was my first stab at using the muvee Reveal software.

Here is what impressed me about this software:

1) It was easy to download and install. Although it did say my laptop did not have enough RAM devoted to video, I had no problems using muvee Reveal.

2) There are many different styles for you to choose from. Whether you are using strictly video, just photos, or a combination of the two, you will find something that will make a nice presentation. I ultimately chose the "Scrapbook" style.

3) Within each style there are further ways to customize your video. I like this because I would never want my video to look exactly like someone else's.

4) You can add your own title and credits with different effects. This includes using a custom color for the background or even a photo. You can also choose the colors and fonts.

5) You can manually cut your video into clips or if you have natural breaks, the software can do it for you. Mine was one continuous shot, so I had to decide where to cut and what to throw out.

6) You can add any music you'd like to your video presentation. The software knows where to fade the music out, etc . . . depending on which style of video you choose.

7) Overall this software can be categorized as user-friendly. I did have to click "help" once to figure out how to make the original sound from my video be heard. The answer was very easy to find though.

One thing I would have preferred to have as a feature is the choice of custom colors for the text of the title and credits. There are only about ten colors to choose from and none of them appealed to me very much.

I definitely think, as with almost everything else, that my videos will improve with practice. You have to experiment with which styles will work best with just photos, just video, or a combination of both. I do think that some styles will work best without the natural sound of the video using just a musical soundtrack instead.

If you would like to take muvee Reveal for a test drive, you can download a 15-day free trial on .
