Editing Video with AVS Video Editor

editing videoFamiliar situation is one where a great amount of video material - films captured from the TV, camcorder movies, photographs, music etc. - all stack up and occupy masses of space on your hard disk or are stored on a multitude of compact discs. Another situation occurs when a movie contains some scenes you would rather prefer to be cut out, or, where you would like to rearrange the sequence of certain scenes. This is the perfect time to start thinking about editing video, because, in the above cases, file conversion will not help you very much.
