What is VideoProc?
In addition to the excitement of YouTube and Instagram, the evolution of smartphone camera functions has increased the number of casual shooting opportunities for everyone, which has dramatically increased the need for video editing.
Of course, simple editing in smartphone apps is getting better, but if you want to do a higher level of editing, you have to use editing software.
VideoProc is a video editing software that combines intuitive simplicity with multi-functionality.
Download from the official site
VideoProc is a desktop application available on your PC.
You can download it from the official website.
You can download it for free, so you’ll want to try it out first! That’s a low bar.
Both Windows and Mac are available.

When the application is started after downloading is completed, the following menu screen appears.
Let me explain about VideoProc’s fee structure.
The fee structure is divided into three categories.
It has a 1 year license for 1 PC “annual renewal license”, a permanent license that can be used permanently for 1 PC, an iPhone manager as a gift, and a multi-effects license that can be used for up to 5 PCs “home license”.
