The Bottom Line
- Unique and enjoyable editing interface
- Easy for beginners to understand
- Large library of effects and transitions
- No support for HD video
- Not regularly updated
- Hyper Engine features “trackless” editing, so video, audio and graphics can be intermixed and easily rearranged.
- Hyper Engine offers a variety of video effects and transitions - including chroma key. However, many of these are inelegant.
- Hyper Engine offers real-time rendering, which can slow down and crash the program.
Guide Review - HyperEngine AV Free Video Editing Software
When I started using HyperEngine AV I was frustrated. The "trackless" editing is unlike any other video editing software, and I had trouble making it do I what I wanted it to.
But after further exploration, I really got to like the program. Once I set aside my expectations, I realized that it's actually pretty intuitive and hands on.
It's obvious that some really good ideas went into designing Hyper Engine. Unfortunately, there were too many problems with the editing software. It lacks some video essentials - like HD - and, during my tests, had a propensity for crashing.
