phenomenally useful for making video clips

I had tried all sorts of video editing tools for making short video clips to use in public presentations and in class. They were all way too much trouble, with steep learning curves. Shave is fantastic! It is simple, straightforward, easy, and FAST! It just gets the job done with a minimum of fuss and time. I totally love it!

As far as I can ascertain, though, it only produces .mov files, which need to be played with Quicktime or the audio and video are slightly out of sync. So when I play clips made with Shave on a Windows PC, I have to remember not to double click, but rather to use "open with" to play the file in Quicktime.

I wish Shave were able to produce mp4 clips instead of .mov. But that wish does not diminish my incredible enthusiasm for Shave! Thanks to the Shave people!

This is the missing link.

This is truly an amazing program. It is the missing element in video editing. When the job at hand is just too small to fire up iMovie or one of the big guns, SHAVE does the trick. I am so happy I found this little gem … and I pray the developer continues to update the program frequently because there truly is nothing out there that I can find that does what this program does. I'd give it TEN stars if I could.

Simple to use and it works great

This is a very simple video editing app without a lot of bells and whistles but it works great. If all you want to do is simple editing such as removing or rearranging sections of video file or joining video files together then this is the great app. It doesn't do fancy stuff like transitions and titles, but that's what makes it so stable and easy to use. It was just what I was looking for.
