[Windows] Cut, join, split, and crop videos, add watermark, and more with idoo Video Editor Pro

2013-03-08_222315 [1]Need a program to perform “modifications” such as cut, join, split, and crop to your videos? Video to Video Converter [2] is a freeware program that does all that and more, despite being a video converter and not a video editor. However, if Video to Video Converter is not to your taste, then idoo Video Editor Pro wants your business. Let’s see if it is worth your time.


Main Functionality

Despite the name of the program, idoo Video Editor Pro does not let you edit videos per se; you won’t be able to edit the contents of your videos with this program. Rather, idoo Video Editor Pro allows you to: cut, join, split, crop, or rotate videos; add watermark; add subtitles; and modify brightness, contrast and saturation.




2013-03-08_222506 [4]When I first came across idoo Video Editor Pro, I was quite excited to see a video editor for only $39.90. Competent video editing software, like photo editing software, are expensive so an editor for less than $50 excited me. However, once I started using idoo Video Editor Pro I realized why it is so “cheap” — it isn’t actually a video editor.

Despite the name of the program, idoo Video Editor Pro is not a video editor; it does not allow you to actually edit the contents of videos. Rather, idoo Video Editor Pro is what I’m going to call a video ‘modifier’ — it allows you to modify videos but not video content. And that is my biggest problem with this program.

The program itself works fine as per my tests (fast, good output quality, no bugs that I noticed, etc.) and is fairly easy to use. However, a program named idoo Video Editor Pro should have video editing features or shouldn’t call itself a video editor. But then again, who am I to tell idoo how to name their programs.

Conclusion and Download Link

As I already mentioned, I found nothing too majorly wrong with idoo Video Editor Pro although there is obviously some room for improvement. My biggest issue with the program is that it doesn’t actually edit videos. And the fact that it doesn’t actually edit videos puts that $39.90 price tag into better perspective. Do you really want to pay $39.90 for video modifications features… especially when those features can be found in many freeware video converters, like Video to Video Converter [2]? I personally wouldn’t but, hey, it is your money.

If you don’t like Video to Video Converter, Freemake Video Converter [5] can also join/cut/rotate/flip videos or you can check out dotTech’s review of best free video/audio converter for Windows [6] to learn about other converters that also have these features or you can check out other programs like Freemore Audio Video Suite [7], Free Studio [8], and All Free Video Joiner [9]. I especially like All Free Video Joiner for joining purposes because it does joins without re-encoding.
