Nero Video is a video editing and management tool that aims to make the process of working with video files as easy as it has become to edit digital photos. Whatever device you have used to record video, it can connected to your computer so that it can be quickly converted to other formats or put through a more rigorous editing process. As well as importing videos, you can also work with PowerPoint presentations.
But it is not just video files that the media manager is capable of handling – it can be used to catalogue all of your music and photos as well so they are all available in one place ready to use in your projects. This is where Nero Video really comes into its own, with the beautifully designed storyboard making it easy to work with multiple video clips and make the necessary edits. To help speed things up, there are a huge range of special effects that can be simply dropped into place.
The latest version of the app includes the option to import video clips directly from the Nero MediaBrowser, and if you have already started working with videos using Windows Live Movie Maker these projects can be imported into the program without fear of losing the work you have done so far. To help make your videos more exciting, there are now more audio and video effects to choose from and enhanced performance comes thanks to hardware acceleration with a wider range of graphics cards.
Of course it is also possible to switch to a more advanced editing mode in which you can work with multiple tracks for even more impressive results. The projects you create can be burned to CD, DVD or Blu-ray as well as being saved as standalone video files. With HD support and everything you need to create basic and more advanced masterpieces, Nero Video is hard not to love.
