  • Editing suite: You can adjust multiple aspects of your video files through this app. In addition to the general features, like cropping, or adjusting aspect ratio, zoom, and brightness, this program also allows you to add effects and adjust the coarseness of the film grain.


  • Help issues: While there is extensive documentation in the Help documents provided with the app, they are mostly written by other users, thanks to the nature of the open-source software.
  • This doesn’t have to be a drawback, but it can mean that they’re a little technical and could be hard for an inexperienced user to follow.
  • The Help files are also universal to VLC Media Player programs for all platforms, but each platform has a slightly different interface and set of controls, so directions written based on one platform might not be exactly what you need if you’re working with a different one.
