Do you own a video camera? If so, then you probably have all sorts of uncut videos gathering dust on your hard drive. In our mind's eye, we envision someday taking all those video clips and fine tuning them into something cool; we never get around to it though. There are lots of reasons this might happen, but one of the biggest is not know how to edit video. Let's face it; the idea of video editing can be intimidating to anyone that's never tried it. Mainly because fancy, expensive video editing software takes a long time to master. The very thought of polishing old videos then becomes a question of "do I want to spend months learning how to do this? There must be a better way ... "

NB: 6-months license.

Very intuitive and simple to use, and I like to share the results with friends. I had this on my old Vista computer and it ran fine. Easy to combine audio and different videos, add transitions where needed, and create a movie with the right balance of quality and megabytes. Recommended!

Easy-as-pie installation AND registration by following the instructions. After registering, it even lists the date when the 6-month license will expire, so we can plan ahead. I like the software; I think it will be easier to use than some others I have purchased. Thank you, GAOTD and Bolide!

The app is great for what it's for and suggestions for improvements or additional content are actually really considered by Max, so if there are reasonable things you would like to see in future versions of the tool, then let him know, but consider in which price-range he is actually offering his app.

No, I'm not paid by him or someone else to leave a good comment about it, but I bought the tool some time ago and it's ok for what I'm using it for.

cannot get this to run under a Remote Desktop session, while VSDC Video Editor Free and Pro operate just fine under Microsoft Remote Desktop control.
VSDC does support full 4k resolution right up to 4096x3072 as well as 4096x2160 and the consumer grade UHD 3840x2160 while the best this offers is just UHD 3840x2160 as max resolution and zero controls to choose output video codec, no VP9 or HEVC H265 just old AVC H264 which is NOT suitable for UHD video production. Transforms this offers are very simple fixed transforms while VSDC offers highly adjustable transforms that can fine tune angles of rotation, and syncronize the rotation to specific points in the time line and not just on an entire video object. Even the free VSDC video editor is far more powerful than this.

Why is this software spying on what other video editor packages that are installed on my machine?
While testing out the free trial mode to see if it's hackable to remove the watermark I got a popup alert box from this software stating:

"It looks like you are already using the video editor "VSDC Free Video Editor"
We have special prices when switching from other programs
Do you want to get a discount for Bolide Movie Creator License?

Yes No Cancel"

Bolide Software mind your own damn business and don't go searching my PC for data your program does not need to operate!

From what I see Bolide Movie Creator is a toy compared to VSDC Video Editor Free or Pro!
It may be simpler but it is also far less capable. I'd rather stick with far more capable software even if it requires a little bit of thought to plan a video composition. I am not adverse to thinking!

Downloaded and installed without issue, fired it up and entered the registration code and restarted the program, everything looks good, threw in 5 clips I wished to merge together, took about 2 mins and was complete, the newly merged clip looked and sounded fine but was stripped of all its subtitles, is there a way to keep the program from stripping out subtitles when merging multiple clips together?

The price quoted for this giveaway is for the unlimited license $39.95

not the monthly $6.95 pro-rata subscription price of 6 months which would be $41.70

So this giveaway license is neither one nor the other.

Bolide Software if you want a fair user rating on the functionality of your software in a giveaway, give away your unlimited license with no entitlement to free future updates and strictly personal use and no obligation to provide on going tech support.

By skimping on the giveaway offering a 6 month trial to try and force participants to buy something after 6 months you are damaging your online reputation and making a potentially valuable marketing opertunity a bad publicity campaign.

What happens after the 6 month licensing period ?
Does this mean you will no longer receive updates ?
Or does it mean the software will revert to some other mode, i.e. reduced features ?
Or does it mean it will stop functioning completely ?
Or ?
Thank you.

BobbyA, after license expiration, the program will still work with no functionality locked, but it will place a watermark in the saved video files.

Ultimately I uninstalled because this program would not render the video. It returned an error code each of the three times I worked up a video. It was simple to use and had most of the features I would use for day to day editing. I could not edit sound that was part of the clip I imported. I looked at the online help and indeed it can only work with sound that is ripped from the video clip. That could be worked around. But, failing to render or even save was the killer.

Christian, did you use the GOTD-version or the Fix-version?
At first I got an error using the GOTD-veriosn.
I applied the fix, as mentioned in the receive mail and al went OK.

I've tested the software compared to others I have installed such as Hitfilm express, Filmora and Sonny Vagus Pro. It's a very simple software (as in easy to understand and use not in what it does). It is actually pretty good works well and no issues so far on windows 10. So a fantastic giveaway apart from one aspect. The 6 months lisance. If you could change that in the future I'm sure that people who don't have or want to buy a more complicated and powerful software and just want to edit basic aspects would find this a good programme. Personally, I have very little for this programme and that's why I would suggest this to make urself more competitive. To other users, if you don't have a video editor I would get this and hope for a new giveaway in the future so you can renew.

A modern video editor should support 4k resolution.

Max from Bolide Software, Stephen certainly means the H265 (HEVC) Video Codec.
He must have H 265 (HEVC) Video Codec on his PC

NO H265 (HEVC) Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC).....Is not listed.

Max from Bolide Software, FYI 3840x2160 is NOT 4K it is UHD or 2160p or 2160i resolution. 4K is either 4000x2160 or more properly 4096x2160 also known as UHD but not all UHD is automatically 4K.

Remember the simple fact all chickens are birds but not all birds are chickens.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+10)

TK, 4096x2160 is used mostly in digital cinema production. Are you working in this industry?
The most common 4K resolution is 3840x2160.
Anyone can check wikipedia for "4k resolution" and find 3840x2160 there :)

Reply   |   Comment by Max from Bolide Software  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

Max from Bolide Software, 4k is a number it corresponds to 4096 in computer context and 4000 in metric mesurment context, 3840 is a UHD resolution specification NOT a 4k resolution. 3840 is just twice 1920 and is made by doubling a standard 1080p display pannel. 1920 does not equal 2k as 2k =2048 or 2000 depending upon context.

It has been abused by marketing departments when a poduct is really 3840 pixels across, just because some companies choose to LIE does not redefine a NUMBER to mean something else.
If you choose to continue propogating the lie that 4k = 3840 more fool you as you continue lose respect of educated people!

Now if your program supports 4096x2160 then by all means say so and continue to claim it supports 4k and other UHD resolutions but if it does not support 4096x2160 don't lie just because other marketing departments have so far gotten away with lying!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

As Max from Bolide Software has stated. "4096x[unspecified] is used mostly in digital cinema production" for more general use and TV's the resolution is 3,840x2,160p. It isn't 2k as there is a small 13% difference to 4096x2160

2k is way more smaller and the same again 2,048x1,440p is for TV's whereas cinema production is 2,048x[unspecified].

The terms 2k and 4k DO NOT refer to **specific resolutions**. They are categorizations of resolution. 2K refers to resolutions approximately 2,000 pixels horizontally and 4k approximately 4,000 pixels horizontally. It's easier than saying something like 2160p or 1536p

Examples of 2k are: 1920 × 1080 | 1920 × 1200 | 2048 × 1080 | 2048 × 1152 | 2048 × 1536

This is why 2560×1440 is not 2k. That would be 2.5K.

TK, You are trying to split hairs where it is not necessary. Simple research will show that true 4K is generally used in digital cinema production. UHD is the consumer version that is generally defined as 4k across the industry. There is no point in really discussing it because those that really do require the 4k cimema experience are most certainly not going to purchase cheap editing software to edit it.

Reply   |   Comment by PhilS  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

PhilS, there is a large number of hairs between 4096 and 3840 if they support 4k then fine but if they only support UHD or as it is otherwise called 4k UHD which is not accurate but at least it differentiates it from 4k DCI then the should not claim 4k which is properly reserved for 4k DCI and only marketing departments (professional liars) use it where they can get away with it. The rest use 4k UHD or just UHD

https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/174221-no-tv-makers-4k-and-uhd-are-not-the-same-thing

The use of 4k with domestic products is wholly inappropriate as it is derived from professional specification of 4096x2160 period and is very rare such content is ever made available to domestic users for playback on their UHD devices. Generally the only way consumers will get true 4k content is by stealing it from cinemas or file companies OR making their own with software that can generate true 4k content. Even then to play it back on consumer grade equipment it will have to be downsampled/downscaled to the true optical resolution of the consumer display or cropped to the true optical resolution of the display both of which are less than optimal compared to rendering the video at the native resolution of the consumer display.

Really for consumer grade it should logically be 2160p UHD or 2160i UHD as appropriate the natural and logical progression from 1080p FHD and 1080i FHD and the preferred marketing hype of 4k should be left to the cinema industry but 4k looks more impressive so marketing industry chose to propagate that lie as it looks better even if it won't play true 4k cinema content directly!
We are not purchasing software.. this is an extended trial giveaway...

Free alternatives are "DaVince Resolve" and "Hitfilm Express". Probably not as easy to learn as today's giveaway, but they are more powerful and - most of all - are permanently free (no time limited license).

Looks like it may be good. Running on Windows 10 64 bit.

However, when clicking on 'Transitions' or 'Effects', the program crashes:

"Access violation at address 00697C60 in module 'BMCreator.exe'. Read of address 00000004."

Have tried running as administrator, and tried compatibility settings from Vista to Win 8 - no joy.

As it doesn't run, it's no good for me (and as such, can't comment on how good the program is) - hopefully it works properly for other users.
