Here Are Some Video Utility Softwares Which Maybe Useful To You Guys..

Avidemux -

Making simple crop edits to videos of all formats shouldn't be tricky business, but most tools out there either do way too much or are so belabored with ads that who knows what evil lurks within their code.
Open-source on the GNU license, Avidemux is a breath of fresh air. Cropping a video is as simple as selecting the section you want to remove and then hitting the Delete key. Re-encoding a video is equally painless: select the output format from the drop-down list, save the file, and you're good to go. When choosing where to start and stop a crop, there's both incremental and multisecond advance and rewind tools, There's also a not insubstantial list of video and audio codecs that files can be converted to. Video formats include multiple codecs for FLV, MPEG, AVI, VCD, H.263/4, and others, while audio formats include MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, WAV, and one or two more.
The program also includes advanced options, including generic decoder and post-processing tools, user-defined filters, GlyphSet adjustments, and more features. Avidemux should appeal to users of all abilities who are looking for a quick way to edit down video files.


VideoPad -

NCH Software's VideoPad Video Editor Professional is a full-featured video-editing tool that is surprisingly easy to use. It can combine numerous clips and soundtracks in a wide range of video formats into movie projects, or build an entire production out of a single clip. It supports drag-and-drop editing, real-time effects previews, format conversion, importing and exporting files, captions, narration, and more. It can burn DVDs, HDs, and Blu-ray discs and output video to portable devices. It can also capture video from camcorders and other devices.
It's a rare video editor that you can just fire up and start making movies with, but that's what we did with VideoPad Pro. We browsed to a cartoon saved as an MPG file. VideoPad Pro scanned it and displayed it in the left half of the split main view, with its frames running sequentially along the bottom of a main preview window in a scrollable, time-marked view, and also displayed its information in the left-hand Media List panel. Pressing the Play button played the clip normally. Extracting clips from the main clip was incredibly simple; using the timeline, we selected an In Point and an Out Point and clicked the green down arrow. VideoPad extracted the clip and displayed it below in the Video Track section, which is just above the similar Audio Track. In this manner, we quickly cut up and rearranged the cartoon out of sequence, and then previewed it in the right-hand pane. The transitions between merged clips were seamless. We could save our finished clip or subject it to a wide range of processing and production tools. Toolbar icons let us quickly insert blank spaces or add narration, captions, and other effects. Clicking Build Movie called up a dialog that let us select the video format and whether to burn a disc, send it to a portable device, upload it to YouTube, and other choices.
With smartphones, video sharing sites, and Webcams everywhere, there's no lack of raw video resources, just a need for a powerful, easy-to-use tool like VideoPad Video Editor Professional to put your projects together, polish them up, and present them in the format of your choice. More than just fast and competent, though, we also found it fun to use.


Zuma Personal Edition -

The interactivity in Zuma Pro makes this visualization program a whole lot more fun than its competitors. You can control more than 60 animations in real time using hot keys and sliders, and even move around inside a scene, take snapshots, and record visuals as they unfold. Music lovers will find Zuma Pro an addictive toy.


Race Render Video Processor -

RaceRender Video Processor is a program that can create and edit videos. For freeware, it has a great deal of functionality, despite its plainness.
The design of this program's interface is very basic, and its layout is fairly easy to navigate. The Help manual is extensive and covers pretty much any topic you need to know. A good Help manual is much appreciated since RaceRender is a complicated program, especially for users with little video editing experience. We were able to import a video file into the program with no trouble, and we discovered a few useful features, too. For example, the Snapshot feature takes a shot of a frame of video and saves it as a BMP file. RaceRender's description says that you can create videos with picture-in-picture overlays, split screens, camera switching, transparencies, and other effects, and also mix multiple concurrent video and audio sources. Without a thorough study of the user manual, we could only accomplish the basic task of importing video into the program. The editing features are extensive and really require some study of the instructions to fully grasp how to use RaceRender to create and edit videos.
This is a free application. Basic users and those new to video will have a big learning curve using it, but those with video-editing experience will probably be able to get up and running with RaceRender in no time.


Easy Video Splitter -

This video-splitting program proves that single-minded focus can be a very good thing. First off, we should say that Easy Video Splitter only does the job in its title and nothing else. However, it makes up for this narrow scope by being extremely easy to use and offering a high degree of control over the chopping process. The interface is aesthetically pleasing and provides a large preview window on its left side. After you load an AVI, WMV, or MPEG video, you can choose the stop and end points of your segment by simply clicking two icons. We really appreciated the fact that Easy Video Splitter can cut multiple files from the same clip, a convenient feature not found in some competitors. You also can set the program to automatically split clips by size or time. Since the trial version lets you chop as many files as you want for a full week, we can give this app the green light for anyone who needs to dice up video.


Video Edit Magic -

Though it lacks the features of big-name programs such as Adobe Premiere, Video Magic is admirably simple and suitable for basic home use. Once you've captured media from a DV camera, a DVD camcorder, or another source, you just drop the video and audio files onto Video Magic's time-line-based interface to start editing. The program provides a healthy number of transitions and effects, such as fades, wipes, and even a picture-in-picture tool. It's a snap to slap together video files and add dissolves, narration, and background music. When you're done, Video Magic can output your movie to any of the major video formats, including AVI, MPEG, and WMV. The program now includes a tool for splitting clips into multiple segments, but we didn't find it all that easy to use. Also, the program lacks a dedicated trimming tool, making it difficult to fine-tune transitions. Overall, Video Magic is best suited for novices who want to get their feet wet before moving on to more full-featured packages.


Vegas Movie Studio -

As more and more portable devices integrate camcorder functionality, recording amateur video on the fly becomes a much less daunting task. However, editing that video can be another matter altogether. From very basic consumer apps to professional grade production suites, there's no shortage of software available to help you trim your footage and add an appropriate soundtrack.
Sony's Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0 falls somewhere in the middle in terms of consumer video-editing programs. It's probably too advanced for most newbies, but those with some level of experience toying with digital video will find that it offers a nicely laid-out interface and plenty of features.
The main window for this version of Vegas Movie Studio is divided into four sections that are all pretty straightforward in function. The top of the screen offers a preview pane, a trimming window, and a multitabbed media corner that contains the files you've imported. This section also lets you access additional content, including video transitions and effects. The bottom half of the screen is dominated by the editing bank, into which you can drag and drop various video and audio clips from the media corner. Projects offer six components initially: text, video overlay, video, voice, music, and sound effects. ("Voice" generally refers to the audio originally attached to the video in this case.)
Lining the very top of the window is a multitude of icons that can take you into the various features of the software. With one click, you can enable snapping, lock envelopes to events, and insert automatic crossfades. The sheer number of options can be overwhelming to first-time users; luckily, Sony includes a prominent "show me how" button that takes you directly to various handy tutorials for the program.
As for features, Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum is not lacking. Some that carried over from version 9.0 include the ability to edit and produce movies with special effects and transitions, create DVDs and Blu-ray Discs with custom menus and graphics, and share movies on portable devices. In version 10.0, Sony has simplified the new project experience, as well as added a built-in image stabilization tool, a slideshow creator, and support for an increased number of audio and video tracks in a single project.
Sony Vegas is capable of importing 26 audio, video, and image file formats, including QuickTime, MPEG-4, and AVI. It can save to 25 file types. In addition, it can edit and save in high-def, and there's an option to publish final movies directly to YouTube.
We tested the software on a system running Windows XP on 2.3GHz AMD Dual Core Processor with 3GB of RAM and were treated to a fairly smooth experience. (Sony recommends a 1GHz processor with at least 2GB of RAM for HD.) There were some hiccups; notably, transitions didn't play smoothly in preview and in a few instances, our final rendered videos were buggy during playback--one AVI output failed to attach the audio and one MOV suffered from jittery video. However, WMV and MPEG4 final output files played flawlessly, so we recommend saving to one of those formats instead. Videos take quite a bit of time to fully render, but that's just the nature of the beast--especially when it comes to high-def.
It's also worth noting that we did some side-by-side testing against iMovie running on a Macbook with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo. This is a matter of personal preference, but we found the language in Sony Vegas to be generally more straightforward than that of iMovie, and adding audio clips was a more transparent process as well. However, iMovie makes easier work of exporting and offers more hand-holding in terms of creating seamless projects.
