ShowBiz 5 Editor's Review

Video editing is no longer restricted to professional studio setups and post production sector. Average PC users also need to dabble with video editing nowadays. You can pick from various free and commercial video editing apps to fulfill such needs. ArcSoft ShowBiz is one such contender. It comes with plenty of options to edit video clips and share them online and through various media.

The app runs on PCs with Windows XP SP3 and later versions. The installation does not require much time. You will require a PC having multi core CPU and plenty of RAM.

ArcSoft ShowBiz has an intuitive UI that is easy to use. You may resort to old “drag and drop" method for importing video and audio files. It is also possible to import clips from connected external drives. There are both timeline and storyboard in this app. The app lets you preview imported clips.

You can add text to the projects and there are a set of effects and transitions, as you can expect from any decent video editor app. It is also possible to record audio using microphone. The app comes with a set of advanced video editing tools. You can change brightness, apply crop and resort to its Anti-Shaking tool. The storyboard is ideal for beginners while Timeline view allows more precise editing.

After editing a project is done, you can export the file using various means. Supported formats include MP4, WMV and AVI. It is possible to burn a disc with the files or share it online. Sharing on Facebook is supported. The program has decent help documentation.

ArcSoft ShowBiz runs well and excels at video editing and conversion. However, the app is quite resource hungry and requires a very powerful computer.

Positive Points:
•    Sleek UI.
•    Timeline and Storyboard View.
•    Decent editing tools.
•    Social media sharing.

Negative Points:
•    Quite resource hungry.

Conclusion:
ArcSoft ShowBiz is a decent and feature rich video editor. It is easy to use and offers a decent set of filters and effects for users. Importing media from numerous sources is possible and drag and drop support is there. The app can be used to export videos in a number of popular formats. You can burn discs and share videos online without fuss. There is nothing particularly wrong about the app except for its resource hungry nature. It can make basic to mid range PCs crawl.

Rating: 3.5/5
