For those times when the full-fledged features of Final Cut Pro are too overwhelming, and iMovie’s massive library of effects just aren’t needed, Shave Video does simple video editing and exporting for the masses. The app’s interface doesn’t use timelines or waveforms, but rather presents the video in plain form for you to edit as you please. All you have to do is set in and out points for the video and work within those parameters. You can use Shave to trim extraneous scenes from a birthday party, rotate a vertical iPhone video, or extract part of it and save it as a separate movie file.
Shave’s bare-bones interface keeps most options and features in your menu bar.
When you’re finished editing, you can export it as a QuickTime movie file, AVI, MPEG-4, or DV, or export each individual frame of the video as its own image, which can be used as video stills and preview thumbnails. When you’re exporting, you can also adjust the settings of the video—like compression and framerate—and even add a video filter.
The app utilizes basic keyboard shortcuts for traditional video editors, and the tutorial video makes it accessible for virtually anyone, regardless of their experience with video editing. Additionally, if you trim your video into pieces, you can batch export without having to save each individually. There’s also an option to share your video to Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr.
The bottom line. Whether you’re an entry-level video editor or you just want to quickly trim your latest YouTube rant, Shave belongs in your toolkit.
