|Swiss Movie Knife 1.0 is a simple yet powerful video editing tool esp. for people with a Full-HD camera that is saving in the M2TS format. It does contain the most important features that any serious movie maker would need, but it isn't too complex. It is the HD-video-editing-equivalent of the swiss army Knife so to say. The basic tasks to edit a movie can be learned intuitively within minutes. Nevertheless, with some practice SMK allows to achieve high quality greenscreening and other FX. The freeware version is fully functional, it does however draw an almost invisible little smk logo to the left side of single frames in intervals of appoximately 15 seconds.

I have to say a word here since the last comment is a bit harsh imho. as I'm the coder of this tool: There's no such thing like social security for natives like me in zurich, the most expensive city in the word. As I'm currently diening due to starvation (no exageration) I cannot give it away totally for free, but ask for a lil help. furthermore, giving away good tools for free is destroying the market. But, the freeware version, that draws an almost invisible watermark can be used (uncommercially) for free. The audience will barely see that watermark, so you really can use it for free, if you want. This watermark is only there if you want to use it commercially, so I would recognize it.
Anyway, I've been working with Magix and Premiere, and I think SMK isn't that useless as it was described before, even the freeware version. And this early version may get more functions in the future, if there are some people who understand the idea of solitarity with the working creators. I've spent more than 1000 hours of work (normally paid with 30$/h or more). Thanks for understanding my point. Try it yourself!
I think would-be end users of this tool are due some additional information and a description that doesn't sound like a PR release. There's blue bolded text that calls this "Freeware" but then in parentheses there is "$18" next to it. This is not what the word "freeware" means.
We also learn from the description (full of puffery) that "The freeware version is fully functional, it does however draw an almost invisible little smk logo to the left side of single frames in intervals of appoximately 15 seconds", which is also not characteristic of freeware. The developers of this application would not have written in the logo function if it yielded something "almost invisible" - that would defeat the point of doing so!
We are also informed that "You are doing much more than that, because you will become part of the CSP Co-Producers Legacy". But the sort of person who needs freeware video editing tools DOES NOT CARE about this sort of bogus award - they are interested solely in editing video.
Browsing through the project's site yields some interesting misconceptions - for example, an NLE should not care whether a source is, in the developer's words "1920*1080 50i Full HD Source material" or instead 1920x1080 60i.
"SMK Pro 1.0 Licensed version has no limitation whatsoever concerning the exported movies..." also raises some concerns and demonstrates a misunderstanding of what "freeware" means.
This may well be a great tool, but the over-generous project marketing department is misrepresenting it.
