Most Used Features in a Video Editor for Mac

monitor_464x401When it comes to video editors for Macs, there are some features that tend to be used a lot more than others. Odds are, you’ve already encountered this and probably already know of a few that you tend to use very often and also a few others that you scarcely ever touch.

One of these features has got to be those associated with ‘cutting’ video footage. Some of these features include trimming unwanted footage and deleting it, splicing two clips into a single clip, splitting footage into multiple parts and rearranging it, and so on.

Another popular feature involves adjusting the audio – either by adding a soundtrack or voiceover, or even just tweaking the volume or the speed of the audio to better sync it with the video.

Next up come the video enhancements, which include adjusting the brightness and contrast, performing color corrections, sharpening the video, or even fixing the white balance. Needless to say, these are all popular features as they’ll improve the overall image quality of the video and make it look a lot better.

The features listed above are undoubtedly the ‘most used’ in any video editor – such as the Movavi Video Editor. However there are others that are just a little less popular – mostly due to the fact that they tend to be situational and therefore are only used when needed.

Out of these, the most popular has got to be transitions – either between still images or video clips. At one point transitions were amazingly popular but nowadays people often prefer a ‘less is more’ sort of approach and so transitions are reserved for special occasions when they will really ‘fit’ the video.

Other special effects aso follow the same sort of rule – including things like black and white or sepia filters, green screen special effects, and so on. In the right sort of situations these can be amazingly useful, but they’re not generally part of the ‘bread and butter’ arsenal of what most people use in their video editors.

Knowing the most used features in a video editor for Mac should help you to prioritize the features that you’re looking for.

Delhi is exploring the latest rage of trendy doors

With all those smart homes being developed in the townships of Delhi and NCR, it is no wonder that flats for sale in Delhi are going more and more experimental when it comes to interior design and aesthetics. After the kitschy ideas like making wallpapers of old Banarasi sarees or bringing in the old world charm with a grandpa clock, the latest rage in home fashion seems to be doors with a fun twist.

Why exactly is this trend picking up pace? Well, the answer to that may lie in the natural human tendency to experiment and treat the eyes with something that is new every time. This does not have to be a major change but even little details can highlight some of the most boring spaces and make them livelier in no time. So, considering the element of doors and why we are embracing this trend so fast, here are a few points that may shed some light on this very fact.

  • Treating our eyes with beautiful new aspects of our home
  • The point is that the place we stay in and spend more than half of our time should be great to look at.
  • We often feel the need to revamp ourselves or our cars and assets that are more easily visible to others. What we forget it that it is equally important to give ourselves the same special treatment and attention that we would otherwise give others.

  • Designer doors and the innovative styles in the market

It is only natural human tendency to be attracted to something that is unique and at the same time highly appealing in terms of looks, design, colour and a lot more. At present, the modern doors market is looking at a very positive growth due to which major players have made an entry bringing with them their individual concepts and ideas that find manifestations in the form of lovely doors for interiors.

These new styles act like magnets for customers who are already looking for something nice for their new flat. When presented with such lovely never-seen-before designs, they find it hard to resist. And that is when the whole story takes a new turn. One gets inspired to buy then the next and then the next and so on.

In addition, there is this tendency of getting inspired way too easily. Suppose one person visits the well decorated house of another, they tend to be fascinated by the home improvements that they get to see at that house. This leads to a tendency of getting inspired to do the same improvements or at least something similar to it in their own homes. So, how do they go about it? They either imitate or begin exploring the market that can satisfy their needs and instincts at the same time.

  • More colours, more fun
  • It is undeniably true again that we all love colours. It need not be highlighted that there is a personal favourite for all, even if it is just one neutral. In fact some people love colours so much that they can’t decide among the huge variety that exists as to which one to declare as a favourite.
  • As happens with all the trends, the present one of getting trendy doors for homes is also being governed and more so, dominated by doors that come in hues we never imagined before.
  • Colourful doors add dimension to the otherwise conventional setting of our homes where wooden brown or white or black is all that we get to see every hour and minute of the day!
