Ok, I've been working with it for a couple of days on and off now, and had some time to check it out more. I am unable to convert MOV files to anything other then MOV and get any sound, wasn't really the whole point of downloading it though, the filters aren't all that "complete", when I run them, funky things happen to my video's, not to mention the affore mentioned "file growning" issue. however the wondershare program will do the rotation, and even shrink converted files..for converting MOV files, I've so far found nothing better then "Total Video Converter"

I really had my hopes up for this one because I've got several .MOV files (quicktime) taken "sideways" (i.e., portrait mode) that I wanted to be able to rotate to (pillared) landscape orientation.It downloaded and registered just fine in Win Vista Home Premium, but using it to rotate one 9.28 second, 724 KB .MOV file by 90 degrees (and outputting it likewise to .MOV file)
gave me a 48,465 KB .MOV that my QuickTime player couldn't play: instead, it complained,
"Error -2048: Couldn't open the file CIMG0366vert.mov because it is not a file that QuickTime understands."Oh yes, and then Extra Video Effect Editor was hung. The Win Vista diagnosis:
Description:A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.Problem signature:

So, off it comes. Glad I made a system restore point before installing. A pity, I could have put this to good use, were it usable. Though, I must say, growing a 724 KB file to nearly 50 MB is not a particularly laudable behavior, either :-{ .

This is probably the crappiest software I have ever tried from this site. I have a clip done on my camera that needed to be rotated. It was originally in Kodaks MOV format. I used Daniusoft Media Converter to convert my Kodak Mov files into WMV files. That worked great, but it wouldn't rotate the file. I tried Extra Video Effect Editor and instead of rotation I got Inverse color. Now it looks like a B&W negative that is sideways. No help file. No instructions. The preview sucks. I tried to re-do from the MOV file, it showed the file as 1 sec instead of 40. I don't know what the authors were thinking when they designed this, but when I look at this, and try it, I say Crapware!!

Ok, I’ve downloaded many programs, and the great majority have been really good. This one is great, I had a video I had recorded on my digital camera, which happens to be a Panasonic(which means it’s recorded in MOV format. Well, I also had another “issue”, since it was a video of fireworks, I’d turned my cam on it’s side. I found a couple of programs that would convert it to other formats, and that was good, but it still came out on it’s side. This one, TG, allows you to rotate video’s…YAAAAAHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks guys, I not only swear by you guys, I also have introduced many of my family and friends to you.

This looks interesting but seems to be lacking the thing I need - a function to enhance and work on the audio tracks. I have a number of lecture videos where the sound is abysmal and I want to be able to boost and clean the audio. I never see this kind of feature mentioned in these tools.

Hi think it's only a myth that people need expensive video editors to make some video editing tasks such as adding scrolling texts, subtitles or custom animations.

So this GAOTD can be easily replaced with other better FREE ALTERNATIVES.


The BEST one is definetely Windows Movie Maker.



Other FREE BETTER (and maybe less known) ALTERNATIVES to this GAOTD, besides VirtualDub and Avidemux, which I think are worth having a look at, may be:

"#10. I recomend people pass on this one."

What do you recommend then? I was quite happy with it, although it seems odd that it's working but I haven't registered it and can't find a way to register it, but its activated. Any suggestions?

Thanks to all and to all a great afternoon!

I usually don't find the tools given here instantly useful (I just install them in case I might find a use for them in future), but this one is different as I have been lazy to find out how to rotate a video that I accidentally took vertically, and this one did a great job with ease. When picasa3 came out, I was excited to know that it supports rotation on video, but it didn't support .mov files, so this tool is better in that respect. The output produced for both avi and mpg were for some reason huge (several times bigger than input), not sure if I have to adjust a setting, but I can probably pass it through a different tool to compress, so probably not a big issue.

This is an amazing program and very useful for anyone who has digital video. The one great aspect of it is that you can rotate a video clip, which came in very handy for my kids dance routine that my wife shot sideways! Now we can view the video without having to turn the monitor sideways. The effects you can give the videos are great, the interface is very easy to use and the entire program is excellent. Download this and fool around with it and in no time, you will have some pretty cool effects for your videos. I am not a paid spokesperson for this product, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn last week.

FWIW there really isn't anything that I can see about the Extra Video Effect Editor that would have an impact on anyone's installed Direct Show video filters. OTOH already installed & poorly behaving DS video filters might be having an effect on the program -- either opening a video for decoding or loading DS files on program start might be calling incompatible code? I would expect that sort of problem if something like codec packs were installed. A program called filmerit might help -- can't hurt, & running it might point out problems you're better off fixing, whether you keep Extra Video Effect Editor or not.

I'd imagine there might also be problems/conflicts with video cards & drivers, as many now fire up hardware accel whenever a video window's opened... I've seen/experienced problems with this with ATI & DivX among others.

------
#27: "...we cannot get Movie Maker to import a video file..."

FWIW, Loretta, a lot depends on what video format Nero used... If it was mpg2, you might use DGIndex (part of dgmpgdec) & VFAPI to load the video in Movie Maker - audio would have to be added separately. If OTOH the video is encoded to Nero Digital, you might have to try several conversion programs, &/or even post asking for help someplace like the forums at videohelp.com - dgavcdec *might* work. You might also be able to use VLAN (the videolan player) -- AFAIK one of the only players to handle Nero Digital, & it has file conversion/saving features. If you're unsure about the format, a program called MediaInfo might help.

Forgive me for asking newbie question: Could someone suggest a few video editors compatible with this, preferably free ones. And add a brief explanation of how to launch this with the main editor program. I'd like to try EVEE, I don't/won't use Windows Movie Maker, and I can't see how to use it with an older editor I have. I currently just get a blank screen like several others.

If you just want to filter your video the easiest way possible, then Extra Video Effect Editor may work very well for you. It has a very small footprint on your hard drive, & in Windows. A VERY common complaint with video-related software is the potential install of conflicting Direct Show filters &/or codecs - the only possible conflict I can see is the included RealMediaSplitter.ax, which a lot of software uses... this is an older version. If the Extra Video Effect Editor has any glaring faults, it’s that it is designed to be very simple, so if your needs are intermediate to advanced, &/or if you want to actually edit your video, then you’ll obviously need something else. That said, Extra Video Effect Editor is pretty good & does just what it’s designed for.

Video software features (& often programs) can be divided into 3 main, specialized areas: format conversion including encoding, filtering including FX, and editing including cutting/splicing video clips. Extra Video Effect Editor clearly focuses on filtering, and the closest program for comparison would be the hugely popular (& free) VirtualDub, used by hobbyists & pros alike.

Besides VirtualDub, another standard tool is AviSynth - it does something called Frameserving, which basically means feeding your source video to your software, regardless the original format, overcoming a weakness in most editing software: the inability to work with most every kind of video. It’s not compatible with every program [use VFAPI when it isn’t], and it does have a very strong focus on it’s many filters that can be used (or not - your choice). Both VirtualDub & AviSynth are fast - I think much faster & much more flexible than Extra Video Effect Editor - but people normally have to learn how to use them... you can’t just fire the programs up & go.

AviDemux was mentioned as an alternative, but IMHO I have to disagree... it’s much, much larger, much harder to use, & unlike the Extra Video Effect Editor, VirtualDub, & AviSynth, installation includes a *lot* of code for format conversion & encoding - stuff that could potentially conflict with other video software. Like Windows’ Movie Maker it does include filters, but filtering video is not it’s prime purpose - just something it does. XP’s Windows Movie Maker is also centered around the Windows Media formats (.wmv, wma), is fairly limited, & is terribly clunky to use - this may not be obvious if you’ve never used better software.

To add filters & FX, *Plus edit*, Sony’s entry level versions of Vegas are extremely popular, & often almost free after MIR when Fry’s has it on sale - I can’t recommend Vegas enough. Adobe’s Premiere Elements is terribly popular, but a bit harder, IMHO less intuitive to use, and it’s anything but free. If you want/need free (without MIR hassles), check out Wax from Debugmode, which has it’s share of loyal fans, and loads of filters & FX, some very sophisticated. If you’re unsure whether you even want to try & edit video, check out the basic tools in the Nero or Roxio suites if you’ve got either on your system, but *don’t* buy one of these suites for their video editing. All of these programs are fairly easy to use, flexible, and include filtering, FX, editing, & encode to several formats.

There really are loads of video editing programs available - those I’ve included are just a few of the most popular - & you can often pick up older versions of video software for very cheap at surplus software sites. Sadly Free-ware or Open-source video editors that match the usability of commercial programs are very rare - Wax is the only one I’m aware of.

To #14, #4, #5, and all those out there quick to comment, but slow on facts: think before you speak (post).

Windows Movie Maker does NOT do "all of this". As far as effects go, yes, WMM has all of these effects and more (like speed up, slow down, watercolor, etc.). WMM also supports many more formats (audio & video). However, EVEE supports the following formats, which WMM does not: MOV, MP4, 3GP.

To Ken Kelly and all the others that insist on posting whether they have something valuable to add or not: STOP!
Comments like "I like it/I don't like it", or "well I think it might be okay... or maybe not, you'll have to try for yourself" (No $h!t, Sherlock!!) are useless and add no value here. If you're going to post a comment, PLEASE do some research first, so you know WTF you're talking about!! Try downloading the product or reasearch it online, but do something other than spouting the first piece of nonsense that pops into your head. Then comment on the product itself: the pros and cons. Who gives a rat's @$$ if you like it or not? Tell us why you like it or not. And if you're going to list alternatives, explain what the differences are.

...And that's about all I have to say about that.

Thi si sno way as rubbish as windows movie maker for the reasons already stated...WMM is limited severely in formats and effects. It sucks in a BIG way!!
Someone also saying here that this program does nothing that cannot be done with virtualdub etc..well that may be the case but..are you forgeting that most people don't bother getting into the complexities of VdubMod or other aps like that(!) and they may want a one or two click solution which is exactly what this software is trying to be so don't knock it for that!!
Very few simple video editing apps will do something that is needed by a lot of people: rotation of video. so many people have asked me how to do it or what program to use and I do it myself with vdubMod and filters but it would be so much simpler to tell them - go get this program and just choose the rotation effect!
Sop please, no more comparisons to windows rubbish or virtualdub because this software is trying to be a simpler tool for those who don't have the time or inclination to learn vdub (which is the best imo but takes a bit of dedication!) or some of the more obscure but great commandline tools out there for video editing.
I commend the makers of this and think it's great!
Installed fine on XPSP2 and had no problems uninstalling either. (I don't need it personally but got my sisters and mum to download it so they don't keep bugging me to rotate videos for them!

The program installed and registered without a problem on my WinXP (SP3)Home Ed. It takes some fiddling around to understand as the help (located on their website) is extremely limited. It's worth checking out, though, as I couldn't see how to convert before saving. (It converts when you click the save icon.)

The basic options seem limited for a commercial product. I'd really appreciate an ability to alter the contrast, sharpen, etc. rather than just brighten the video. ALSO, the 'aging' effect is neat, but I'd prefer something to reduce or eliminate aging effects, i.e., restore older video. The *filter* option seems loaded with special effects, although with everything I tried, all I got was an *emboss* effect.

Probably the one thing I'll use it for is converting .gifs to avi AND adding sound. Couldn't get it to add a .mid, but it DID add an .mp3 clip to the background beautifully (using the audio input from the background box). For those doing this, just input the ending time for how ever long you want the gif to play, otherwise it'll stop without looping (and the sound needs to be the same length, or the music will continue to play after the video has ceased).

A *how to* file on adding sound, background image and sound, and especially using the 'filter' effect would greatly help.

Oh, I forgot in my previous post. Do watch out, the default setting for the program "effects" is only 5 seconds, but it's not that difficult to change in the top right corner.

Ok, I've downloaded many programs, and the great majority have been really good. This one is great, I had a video I had recorded on my digital camera, which happens to be a Panasonic(which means it's recorded in MOV format. Well, I also had another "issue", since it was a video of fireworks, I'd turned my cam on it's side. I found a couple of programs that would convert it to other formats, and that was good, but it still came out on it's side. This one, TG, allows you to rotate video's...YAAAAAHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks guys, I not only swear by you guys, I also have introduced many of my family and friends to you.

I'm going to try this, because we've discovered to our dismay at church that we cannot get Movie Maker to import a video file burned with Nero, which changes the format.

If I can burn a disk with this that will still be .wmv when I'm done, I'll be happy.

#1,#4,#5 Last time I used windows movie maker it was tied to WMV video format for the end result, some of us prefer a choice of output formats. Can't currently check it as this vista version of windows movie maker crashes on each startup attempt and ther is no obvious uninstall or repair function beyond re-installing vista!
#12 an application that is intended for windows only and should make use of system registered resources and filters etc rather than re-invent the wheel and increase the amount of bugs introduced by the new untested code and sheer lines of code required. It is kinda tricky(impossible) to use those filters without a front-end application GUI or command line to orchestrate the data connections. Your points seem moot since it is not an auto-it script piping existing programs data about but a GUI front-end combining windows components into a functional application which is what any normal object oriented windows application is!

Only blank window. Perhaps the company can provide solutions.

Too buggy. Froze up my system, which normally runs the much more powerful Pinnacle Studio 12 without a hitch. The software needs a lot of work.

Better free alternatives:
Video Spin (by Pinnacle): http://www.videospin.com
Jumpcut (online editor by Yahoo!): http://www.jumpcut.com/

#13, Ashraf, Windows Movie Maker has fewer effects. Look at Extra Video Effect Editor's Filter and Color Balance. Of course, Windows Movie Maker is a much more encompassing product, and because it can support multiple video and image files, it also offers transitions. Extra Video Effect Editor isn't compatible with my DirectX filters, so I can't test it or use it (some other people are obviously encountering the same situation).

Lack of experience, too much of a hurry and forgetfulness often combined to make me use a small video camera 90° out of kilter. This device rotates 90° and lets me view those short clips without having to crick my neck or lie down and view sideways. Hats off! (but it puts chiroprators out of business)

There are three icons at the bottom left of the screen - click the middle one and paste in the Licence Key number which is in the Read Me files.

Great little program - not resource hungry so far like Movie Maker.

Thanks GAOTD.

Extra is a great company and all of their products I've tried work a treat, so this software is most definitely trusted, but I'm skeptical on downloading this one because I see no features that don't already come pre-installed on any post-ME edition of Windows. I'm going to check it out to see exactly what sets it apart from Windows Movie Maker.

There are no effects in this program that can't be done with Windows Movie Maker or Virtualdubmod, just to name two, but the ability to save as different video types looked promising, so I gave this a shot.

I added 3 effects to the full 10 second length of a 3 mb xvid/mp3 .avi, saved it as .wmv, and got a 79 mb uncompressed avi with pcm audio renamed to .wmv. Next tried just one effect for 5 seconds to the same file, saved as .mpg, and got a 79 mb uncompressed avi with pcm audio, renamed as .mpg! I didn't bother saving to .avi since I could safely assume what I would get, so I moved on to .mov, using one filter for 5 seconds, which seems to have actually converted to .mov (wow!) but also increased file size to 40 mb.

Needless to say, not a keeper.

Whenever I come to post a comment about a software that mentions how buggy the software is, I get worried when I notice that 69% of people so far have given it a thumbs up. Makes me think that maybe I used the software wrong which is why it was so buggy. But heck I tried everything I could think of and I still run into bugs so here goes:

The Good

* You can add multiple effects at once.
* Supports many input formats.
* Fairly easy to use.

The Bad

* No tooltips to explain program when move hovers over a button or area.
* Registration button needs to be labeled.
* Very buggy (most features are not working/program freezes).
* Only four output formats: mpg, avi, wmv, mov
* Not digging the color scheme/Mac OSX type look.
* Does not have frame-by-frame editing/viewing ability.

Registration:
You have to manually enter the registration code, but where to enter the registration is kind of tricky because the lack of tooltips. To register this software, you have to click on the button circled in blue in this picture.

Free Alternatives:
Windows Movie Maker
VirtualDub
Avidemux

Verdict:
EVEE has too many bugs. I do not recommend it. For simple video editing/creation, I would say go for Windows Movie Maker because of how simple it is to use and the fact that it has more effects to add then EVEE. Otherwise a little bit more advanced work, both VirtualDub and Avidemux are nice software, but I personally recommend Avidemux because I like the interface better.
