Like iMovie, Pinnacle is also considered to be a consumer-level editing program. It features an easy, user-friendly interface, with tools divided into three easy categories: capture, edit, and make movie. Unlike many other consumer-level editing programs, Pinnacle Studio Plus allows you to control brightness, contrast, hue, saturation and audio levels both before and during capture. Editing is made easy with two visual modes, storyboard and timeline, so you can easily see your movie and make creative choices.

Muvee Essentially works by “analyzing” the raw footage you give it, choosing the highest quality pieces and integrating them into a movie using predetermined “styles,” which integrate special effects, transitions, etc. Though there are customization options that do allow you more creative liberty. But, if you are looking for something incredibly simple and easy to use, Muvee is a good option.
