Smideo is a program that allows you to edit videos by cutting a file into several parts; afterwards, you have an ability to add various effects to them.
The application has a pleasant and modern interface. To start using the program you need to follow five main steps, nicely highlighted on the main window. Firstly, you add the video that you want to edit. You have the possibility to select files from your computer, a screencast of your own, and even YouTube links. A nice thing is that the program allows you to create slideshows by adding personal pictures or images downloaded from Flickr.
Once the first step is completed, you may proceed to cut the video into smaller segments; you are able to establish the number of resulting clips, as well as the length of the chunks. Of course, you can keep the video uncut if you want. The next step consists in arranging the order of the parts, whether they are videos, pictures, or text. What's more, you can add audio to your project. I like that you can choose to fade in or fade out the sound effect. Finally, when all the above mentioned steps are finished, you can save the newly-edited video. At this last level you are enabled to set the video resolution and add some additional video effects.
To sum up, this is a good video editor. Its well-structured interface makes the tool very easy to use by anyone. You will find it useful to create slideshows, to cut a video into several parts, and to customize them according to your wishes.
