The video editor from the creators of VLC Media Player

The developers of one of the most popular video players in the world, VLC Media Player, have started a new, promising project: Videolan Movie Creator.

We say “promising” because Videolan Movie Creator is still at a very early stage of development. According to developers, it’s just a pre-alpha release, with many key features missing and lots of bugs. But we were so eager to take a look at it that we couldn’t resist the temptation!

I must say that our testing of Videolan Movie Creator has been quite an adventure. Yes, the program is unstable and buggy, so expect quite a few crashes. Also, I wasn’t able to import images into the editor – only videos and audio files. But despite these problems, I think Videolan Movie Creator could become a really nice, easy-to-use video editor.

First of all, Videolan Movie Creator features a well-designed interface, in black, gray and orange. Also, it includes a wizard that guides you though your first steps with the program and which comes in especially handy when you’re creating your first project.

Finally, managing media in Videolan Movie Creator is really simple. You have the typical dual-screen interface featured in many video editors, and a timeline at the bottom. All you need to do is drag and drop your media there and then you can arrange it any way you want - cut it into fragments, add effects, you name it!

Videolan Movie Creator is still a very early alpha version, but it’s a very promising tool that will hopefully turn into a simple, powerful video editor.
