The library of effects, filters, and transitions is impressive, and all of these are modern-looking, not the PowerPoint-style animations. And it allows you to embed music, or text, and images wherever you want in the current segments. You've got the best editing bit, that animation in which the photo or video gets zoomed from a tiny size and vice versa. Packed with useful features and impressive effects, some of which may be more relevant to kids on Instagram, or whatever.

There are many beautiful animations and special effects in Vivacut, and there are all kinds of stickers. Even though you need to pay for some transitions, it's got all the transitions you need anyway. One of the best things is that you can control the volume of the video or music added to make it louder or not. You can zoom into the video for trimming, add extra sound effects, simultaneously play different clips on the same screen, and what not. Like changing the bass in between the music so it gives that cinematic feel to the B-Rolls. Application of the overlay video speed with the optical flow interpolation clashes when exporting the video.
