Professional application for processing digital video really provides a complete arsenal of tools for working with the footage. However, in practice it turns out that more than half of all available tools are not used. Many of the functions of video editor is practically worthless for the average user. For example, to handle the home video, are unlikely to need a video editing multikamerny or tools for creating multi-channel audio. Besides, there is support for complex video editor professional equipment, which only complicates the application, but it will not be any good for an amateur.
Not having enough experience, a novice user it is difficult to assess how useful these or other tools that are available in his chosen video editor. The abundance of tools, commands, menus, pop-up questions (whose meaning is often poorly understood by beginners Video) - all this makes the development of the profession video director, and may even cause that the user will throw this hobby.
