vReveal 3

A straightforward but basic point-and-click video cleanup tool



VReveal is an easy-to-use way to organise, fix, enhance and edit your video clips.

In just a click or two you can apply titles, fix sharpness, colour and contrast issues, or stabilise a shaky scene, for instance. It's just as easy to apply a few simple effects. And while for the most part this really is just a matter of point and click, select the "Fine Tuning" option and you'll get access to raw values like "Highlights", "Shadows", "Saturation" and "White Balance", so you can tweak them manually and produce the best possible results.

Once you're happy with your movie then it can be uploaded to YouTube or Facebook from within the program. And there's an option to export your work as a new video, although this free version does have many restrictions: your videos have a watermark; there's no support for saving anything higher than 480p resolution; and the output options available here are limited to WMV, Uncompressed AVI and MJPEG (AVI).

Upgrade to vReveal Premium, though, and the watermark disappears, there's support for exporting MP4 movies and 720p/ 1080p resolution video, and you gain other useful extras, including a video cleaning tool and some extra effects. The program is yours for $49 and you can order at the program site.

Verdict ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings

VReveal is easy to use, but short on features, and the Premium version is too expensive for what you get. The program might be interesting if you value simplicity above all else, but otherwise we'd recommend you take the time to master a full-strength video editor.
