This software can be downloaded from Free Video Editor description page.

Removing borders

If you want to crop the source video file to a certain size you should click the “Cut borders” button in the object’s properties window. The following window appears:

Transition Effect Wizard

You can run this Wizard by selecting several objects and running the “Video effects -> Transitions -> Run objects wizard…” menu command. The Wizard allows you to create a sequence of objects following each other one by one with various transition effects between them. When you run the Wizard you see the following window:


In this window you can configure the following parameters:

  • Object overlapping. If objects overlap in time, you should turn on this option. Most of transition effects require overlapping objects, for instance one slowly disappears and the other one slowly appears at the same time.
  • Use or not Fade In and Fade Out effects for audio. These options are only available for objects having an audio track.
  • Transition duration determines how long the transition effect should last.
  • Transition effect.

After you finish the Wizard, objects will be aligned in time and the selected transition effect will be applied to them.

Editing Video or Audio Files

If you want to split a video or audio file to parts, or if you need to cut out an unnecessary fragment, you should click the “Cutting and splitting” button in the object’s properties window. The following window will open:


Here you can cut out an unnecessary fragment and set markers to split the file. Also, you can save a screenshot of a current frame to the computer or export an audio track in one of the supported formats.

As you click the “Apply settings” button, the program will offer you to split the file by markers (you can skip this step), and if you have deleted some part of the video, it will ask you if you want to adjust the length of the video object to the modified length of the source file.

This software can be downloaded from Free Video Editor description page.

File’s Sequence Wizard

This window allows you to add one or many media files and apply different transition effects to them.

The window consists of four parts: the effect category window, the effect window, the preview window and the timeline window.

In order to add a file click the “Add files” button at the timeline toolbar or click the empty frame in the timeline. Select a file in the open dialog and it will be added to the end of the timeline. If you want to change the order of the frames, use the corresponding buttons on the toolbar. If you want to remove a file, select it and click the “Remove” button. You can remove all files at once by clicking “Remove All”.

Here you can change the display duration of static images (by default it is 10 seconds). To do this, select the files you need from the timeline, specify new duration and confirm the change by clicking the “” button.

To add a transition effect between files, select the files from the timeline, then choose a desired effect in the effect window and click the “Add effect” button. The timeline will display the appropriate transition mark in the “Transitions” line. You can delete an effect using buttons the timeline toolbar.

The player window allows you to preview any given effect, file or the transition scene. Select an element you need and click the “Play” button. Note, if you select an effect, the playback starts automatically.

After you have opened all the required files, click the “Apply settings” button. Then a sprite will be created in the current scene with all selected elements. The size of the sprite and each element is equal to project’s resolution, that is, a sprite takes up all visible scene space.
