ACDSee Video Studio is a software suite intended for video editing and production. Fortunately, in addition to having a beautiful interface, the program is full of features that allow creating your own video from scratch.

Although creating a video with ACDSee Video Studio is more difficult than with other simpler software, the results are certainly worth the extra effort. However, if you have previous experience with this type of tool, I am sure you will not find the learning curve so steep to climb. It is a good idea to have a plan of what you want to accomplish first, and, if you do not feel very confident at the task, you should adhere to the basic cycle of importing media, placing contents in the timeline, adding effects and exporting the resulting video.

Luckily, the tool supports importing a wide array of video, sound and image formats. In addition, it lets you use other sources, such as recording from a webcam, a microphone or directly from the screen. Once you have all you need, you can simply drag and drop the desired elements and arrange them in the timeline. Fortunately, you can use separate tracks for audio, video and captions.

Next, you will probably want to add effects and captions. It is good news that you can add not only visual effects but audio effects as well. As with other programs of the same type, there is also a great collection of transitions. As to captions, they are fully customizable in terms of size, font and position.

Once you have finished editing, you are ready to share the results with others. I am glad to say that not only does it let you save video in some of the most popular formats, but also upload it to a video sharing platform. Great news is that it supports rendering 4K video.

All in all, ACDSee Video Studio comes with all it takes to produce a decent video. In terms of sophistication and usability, it is somewhere between those basic video editors that produce something very similar to a video slideshow and other tools that are used for professional projects. Regrettably, the current version is only available for 64-bit systems. It is good to hear that the product can be tried at no cost for a month. Finally, you should know that getting a license implies various decisions as it can be purchased for a limited period of time or not, according to different plans and prices.
