Best Video Effects Software

With video effects software, users can alter video files with custom or preconfigured effects. Features can range from title and credit creation to special effects such as inserting computer-generated imagery and manipulating visual appearance, depending on the depth of the program. These programs are most commonly used by special effects engineers and artists during the production of films, TV shows, and other media, to add visual details, manipulate scenes, or edit out unwanted objects. Video effects software often integrates with video editing tools, as well as animation or 3D design software.

To qualify for inclusion in the Video Effects category, a product must:

  • Allow users to overlay or alter video files with preconfigured, imported, or custom effects
  • Provide an effects creator that allows users to mold specific effects to their liking
  • Integrate with other video products and export finished files into a variety of file types
