A comprehensive video downloader, player and editor for easy editing tasks
From VideoBlend’s main window you can change the interface theme and quickly access the tools you need with the click of a mouse button.
Consequently, you can use VideoBlend to split, download and encode videos, apply various effects, add background music, rotate footage, add watermarks, adjust the overall volume, extract the audio and create animated GIFs.
Although, all tools are easily accessible, VideoBlend forces you to load your video every time you want to use another feature.
In other words, you cannot load a video in the Split tab and move to the effects tab using the same file. Each tab works as a standalone app and not as a feature within a single application.
This approach might annoy and push prospective users away, especially experienced and professional users that are used to non-linear video editors capable to provide all the above mentioned tools and features without forcing you to load the video every time you switch to another tool.
Quickly download and encode videos from your Mac’s HDD or video sharing websites
However, if you can get used to this workflow, VideoBlend can prove to be a handy utility when it comes to simple editing tasks. As follows, the Transcode tab allows you to convert your videos into one of the supported file formats, while the Download tab enables you to grab videos from YouTube and Vimeo at the desired resolution.
VideoBlend also comes with a small collection of video effects that you can adjust and customize according to your needs. Hence, you can adjust the brightness, contrast and temperature and preview the result before exporting the video.
Merge files and trim videos to create animated GIFs
Moreover, VideoBlend helps you combine audio and video files into a single multimedia file and manually adjust the sound volume of the video and audio file. It is worth mentioning, that you need to load both files in the Split tab and perform the cuts accordingly if you want the sound file to start at a specific point.
With VideoBlend’s help you can rotate videos, adjust the overall sound volume and extract audio from multimedia files. As mentioned above, you can create animated GIFs using video files and use the built-in player to view the exported file.
