No matter how to edit AVI file, you need the help of a professional yet easy-to-use AVI editor.
“I was just wondering if there was a good Mac program to edit .avi files, basically just cut, add text, basic stuff like that. I recently obtained Life is Beautiful, that Italian holocaust movie with Roberto Benigni, in the form of an .avi file, but it’s in Italian with no subtitles. I realize there are places to download subtitles for this kind of thing, but I’ve tried that and I’m a complete noob at it, so I figured I’d just put them in myself, so can anyone suggest an good AVI editor for Mac help to do so?”
To edit the AVI videos taken with your phone, camera and other devices on your Mac, you have three options: video editor (the easiest but powerful AVI editor for Mac), iMovie (a popular video editing tool on Mac) and FCP (a powerful but complicated video editor on Mac). Compared the three, video editor for Mac has a broader format support than iMovie and FCP. Take AVI for example, you can import any AVI video files into the Video editor for converting, but only some special AVI files are possible to be imported into iMovie and Final Cut Pro for further editing. Here, Pavtube HD Video Converter for Mac (review) has taken as the easiest but functional AVI editor on Mac. Whether you want to trim your clips, down to size, add a soundtrack or captions, apply special effects, insert subtitles and etc., this is an affordable tool can help.
