2.1.1 Build 0901

Join multiple videos together, split a big one into multiple chunks, or extract custom parts from a video, with an abundance of supported file formats you can use for both import and export

Note: This software solution is no longer available for purchase but users can still download it from softpedia and use it with its specific limitations.
If you’re working with many video files on a daily basis, sure enough you use a handful of tools to process them, even though the action doesn’t have to be too complex. This can simply mean cutting or joining multiple pieces together, and is exactly the kind of thing AVCWare Video Editor is specialized in.

Impressive variety of supported formats

The application comes with its own stylish, custom main window, but still manages to keep things simple enough to let everyone get the hang of things in a jiffy. The initial window is the main menu, from which you can access all three components, namely the joiner, splitter, and cutter. Closing an active component brings you back to this main menu.
All components rely on the same sed of encoders, meaning input and output files benefit from the same impressive variety of supported file types. As such, you can process videos like 3GP, 3G2, ASF, AVI, DV, DIF, VOB, FLV, M2TS, MTS, M4V, SWF, MKV, MJPG, CDA, MJPEG, MOD, MPEG, MPEG, MP4, MPA, DAT, TS, and several more. The same goes for output, with an organized menu letting you pick according to target device, or option to fully customize quality settings.

Split, cut, or join multiple videos

A neat advantage is that you can directly drag files over a specific editor to get them ready. The joiner component isn’t fitted with too many options, while you don’t find any effects other than fading transition in between clips. All there is to do is add video files of interest in the order you want them to appear, choose format, and wait for the application to finish.
The splitter can chop a video of your choice in multiple bits. A decent variety of methods can be used here, such as manually picking split points on the progress slider, or let the application do this by either choosing time interval, maximum size, or specific number of parts.
Last but not least, the integrated cutter is similar to the splitter component, but instead of continuously splitting the entire video, you can pick multiple parts included in other chunks as well. Defining chunks is either done by setting start and end points on the progress slider, or manually writing down time values for every component.

In conclusion

All things considered, we can state that AVCWare Video Editor bundles a set of useful tools with which to join, split, or cut videos with little effort, and almost no knowledge related to video editing. Supported file formats are no less than impressive, but it could have used at least basic filters or video color management options.
