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. Full description.

Won't run on Win7x64 DX 11 Radeon HD 4550 ATI Radeon Catalyst 13.9
Complains it can't make a 3D object.
Shotcut, Avid, Premiere, After Effects, Lightworks all run perfectly.
Screenshots on home page look great. Can't test it, though.

if you bought it, why you say 1111? After trying it you must have thought it's good, or why would you buy it? if share it didnt deliver the key, or you missed the mail, is it the fault of the author? why didn't you contact shareit?? sorry, this doesn't make sense, maybe just a peed off competitor? Tell me the email you used to purchase, i can check this out. otherwise I consider this spam.

I purchased a "pro" version back in February and never received a license key, just the notice from "Share-It!" that my credit card was billed. Figured I was scammed since there was no link to contact the author.

Note: SMK v1.0R2 just became FREEWARE. Make shure to read the news on www.melog.ch/smk/ about how to use the latest ffmpeg.exe with SMK. The homepage also contains a tutorial.

The first comment sounds a bit harsh to me, let me just say this:
This person seems to be upset because the Program does not provide what his definition of freeware is. I wonder if he ever released one piece of freeware by his own. I doubt he tested this tool before commenting it. This is just nitpicking on the manual. As far as I see this is one of the cheapest tools in this league.
Just to make some things he said clear:

" 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."

It's good to make buddies in the nobudget area and
17.77$ is pretty close to freeware. With this tool you can edit a real movie and sell it for a million $ when you are talented. Trying to save 17 Dollars and then spending hundreds of hours in postproduction doesn't make sense. Of course, you don't need this for a little beach tourist video on youtube.

"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."

Of course it doesn't matter if it's 50 or 60 Hertz. it can handle any rate.


"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."

The writer obviously has no idea that even commercial NLEs like Magix force the user to put their logo in the movie and even on the dvd cover. Contrary to smk.

As an editor since 15+ years I can confirm that this tool is highly efficient.

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.
