Full disclosure => I have NO financial conflicts or associations with the company, nor have I received pay from the developer. I did claim the software for free though.
I was SUPER impressed when we downloaded this program for our 11 year old child to work on a school video. This is the 2nd video project that he's done with it since the freebie promo came out (first project used acdsee video 3; today's project, we used a trial of video 4). The results were VERY impressive with transitions, split clips, cut scenes, freeze frame, background music, captions, audio overdub all being done by the kid himself. Full disclosure though, this wasn't the first software he's used and he has done projects using iMovie before but he tells me he liked this software more.
I have adobe premiere as well as iMovie (mac) but this program really impressed me with the ease of use combined with the extra features that windows movie maker doesn't have. Premiere is great and I recommend it if you have the time to learn. BUT it also has so many options that a) it can be overwhelming and b) it's severe overkill for just throwing together a video for grade 5. Footage was shot using an old iphone 6s. Final output was an export into mp4 format at 1080p. Fast and easy with the acdsee product.
They are (of course) trying to entice you to upgrade to Video 4; their newer version; but even if you stayed with video 3; you'd have enough to get you started.
Personally, after trying video 3; I have downloaded the video 4 trial and I will be upgrading to it.
Anyways, it's good to see small indie developers putting out good product; download this if you wish to try it out. The main advantage is simplicity to polished project ratio.
(alternatives Hitfilm, iMovie, windows movie maker, Adobe premiere... I'm sure there are more but those are the other products I own / have used before).
