Visual Effects in Focus: VSDC Video Editor 5.5 Adds Instagram-like Filters, Blending modes and Mask Tool
September 27, 2016

Flash-Integro, a leading free software developer, launched a new version of its flagship video editor designed to deliver superior editing experience across the entire workflow: from file import to final rendering.

Completely oriented towards the customer requirements of today, VSDC Free Video Editor stepped up with an upgraded array of visual effects. Instagram-like filters featuring most popular overlays enable to enhance the whole video image with one click and don’t demand any special editing skills.

Instagram effects

Along with that professional blending modes will become an obvious bonus for colorists and those who’d like to create their own visual filters or significantly customize the standard ones. With the help of this tool one can create a very popular ghost effect – when an object in a video has several contours of different colors and types; and even convert any 2D video fragment to 3D.

2D-to-3D effect

In response to ever-growing users’ demand, the newest version introduces a comprehensive mask tool with 10+ mask types available - an indispensable option for video editing professionals. A mask is designed to add a filter or effect to only one region of a video thus enabling to make awesome video effects like a video inserted into a text or into a shape, as well as to blur or pixelize a face, make a watermark much less visible, etc.

nice VSDC

“This release, focused on graphics and visual effects, was largely awaited by our current users. But we also hope to interest new customers just embarking on the NLE adventure, and for this reason we keep on localizing the editor to foreign languages. The newest version will also speak Portuguese and Japanese.” – says Alexander Galkin, Project Manager.

VSDC Free Video Editor has a surprising feature compilation: this is a powerful, if unconventional soft with unintuitive navigation. The editor has a nice toolkit including basic editing features and advance opportunities (background removing, pro filters, splitting audio&video tracs, waveform, converter tool, etc), but it's really awkward to use and requires time to understand the principle of operation. Anyway I always keep in mind that the program is free and keep on activating 3-min autosave against unexpected crash)

Ease of use 4 of 10 Functionality 8 of 10 Value for money 8 of 10 Overall score 7 of 10

Immediately crashes when installed/run using Sandboxie.
Overall score not necessarily a reflection of the programs utility.

The installer will try to download something called "Delta TB".
The EULA says "internet connection required to register product"
Sounds like a DANGEROUS Scam.
Stay Far Away!

I´ll think twice before installing an app with EULA like this : " The installer you are about to initiate uses the Conduit Ltd. network to recommend other software you may find valuable during installation of this software. By proceeding with this installation, you agree that Conduit may collect and use *NON personally identifiable* information about THIS installation (like: install initiated and completed, operating system and language, and country) as well as whether the software recommendation was accepted or not. Collection of such information by Conduit will ONLY occur during this installation and the recommendation process...By installing our software you agree to install the toolbar created by Conduit Ltd. (see Conduit End-User License Agreement below)."
Same EULA is in other 2 products : VSDC Free Video Converter v2.4.3.263 and VSDC Free Audio Converter v1.6.3.333 .
