Today we‘ll apply the Echo effect to an audio — as the name says, it is supposed to repeat an audio segment after some (milli)seconds. If you‘re new to AVS4YOU, it probably can be tricky to find this effect. Here‘s how to do it step-by-step.
Step 1. Open an audio file in AVS Audio Editor and select the segment you want to repeat.
Step 2. On the Effects tab choose Echo/Delay. To apply the effect, use one of the available presets or configure the effect parameters manually.
The following Echo settings are available for editing:
- Echo Level. Defines the volume of the echoed segment — move the slider to the right to make echo louder.
- Delay Time. Sets the point in milliseconds at which echo starts behind the original signal.
- Feedback – determines how much of the affected sound is sent back to the input to be processed again. Use it for multiple echoes.
Step 3. Click the Preview button to make sure that the changes are correct and then OK to apply the effect.
Easy done! Try out the last version of AVS Audio Editor:

If you are taking your first faltering steps in video editing, some operations on video files might sound alike to you. This is especially true when it comes to trimming, cutting and cropping. At first sight, all these operations are very similar because they are all done by cutting your video files. In this guide, we will tell you how to distinguish these notions and how to trim, cut and crop your video files with ease using AVS Video Editor.
By trimming, we usually mean the process of cutting off either a part of the beginning or the end of a video file to reduce its total length and leave the desired content.
Trimming is vitally important if you want to make sure that your video starts quickly and your viewers won’t get bored waiting for something interesting to happen.
The first seconds of your video clip are what draws the attention of your viewers and convinces them to watch the whole video. When applied intelligently, video trimming helps you remove all the unnecessary frames form the end or the beginning of your video clip leaving the content that your viewers might like.
Trimming is really easy to apply to with AVS Video Editor. You can trim any of your videos using the Trim feature. Please, refer to this guide to find out more.
Deleting the unnecessary frames from the end and the beginning of a video clipwith AVS Video Editor
Cutting is another fundamental video editing skill. It is normally understood as the process of removing a section of your video by cutting in two places and lifting out the middle section and combining the leftover video back together.
Cutting is useful when you need to polish a video clip and cut off some meaningless snippets. It might also be a good idea to apply cutting when you want to insert a section of a video clip into another one. Finally, this operation deserves your attention when you plan to share your video clip on social networks and have to cut it into several pieces because of the video length limits.
Cutting is often confused with trimming because both of them are about deleting some parts from the video. However, when you trim a video clip, you delete its beginning and /or end while cutting means cutting a piece out of your video file somewhere else. If you want to edit videos like a pro, you need to understand this crucial difference.
AVS Video Editor makes cutting a piece of cake with the Multi Trim feature. Just read this guide and see for yourself.
Cutting the unnecessary scenes out of a video clip with AVS Video Editor
Last but not least, let’s say a few words about cropping. By this, we usually mean the process of removing unwanted outer areas from your video clip or changing its dimensions to fit within a certain area.
In other words, performing this operation you can choose what part of your video will be visible to your viewers. It can also be useful for fitting the video clip to a new aspect ratio. All in all, this operation helps you to adjust the edges of your video so that your viewers can pay their attention to what is really important.
Like trimming and cutting, cropping is easy to use and master with AVS Video Editor. You just need to use the Crop Scale feature. More information in this guide.

As you can see, trimming, cutting and cropping are completely different video editing operations, although they have a lot in common. Now you know the differences between these techniques and can use any of them depending on what you are going to achieve. No matter what operation you plan to perform, be it cutting, trimming or cropping, it can be easily and efficiently done with AVS Video Editor. This tool allows you to do even more:

GIFs aren‘t so trendy today, but people still love and use them when messaging, in web articles, social networks etc. Why?
- Good for nonverbal communication — express emotions using a popular and funny movie scene.
- Lightweight alternative to videos — imagine a collection of vids and a folder with GIFs. The difference may be measured in gigabytes!
- Makes difficult things simple — many use GIFs in how-tos, articles and guides to show how something works. As you know, an (animated) picture is worth a thousand words.
- Every time and everywhere — Noise around? You won‘t hear a word in a video. Sitting in a library? No loud sounds permitted. There are no such problems in GIFs because they‘re fully about seeing.
- Easily accessible — GIFs can be displayed even with moderate Internet connection, while videos need rather stabile one.
Anyway, sometimes we want to have an animated image at hand. And here‘s how to make it in AVS Video Converter.
- Click the To GIF button at the Formats Tab of the Main Toolbar.
- Enter the Input File Name clicking the upper Browse button.
- Enter the Output File Name clicking the lower Browse button.
- Select a GIF Profile. To edit the selected GIF profile or just preview Input and Output File properties, open the Conversion Options Tab by clicking the Advanced >> button.
- Choose the Convert Now! button.
- As soon as the conversion is completed, the following window pops up:
To open the folder containing the converted video file, play it back and check its quality, press the Open Folder… button. To close the Information window, press the Close button.

If you get a nice summer holiday video, check our latest blog posts about how to turn it into a masterpiece in AVS Video Editor:
Do you want to create a professional video that will impress your audience, but don’t have expensive professional equipment? There is nothing to worry about. Achieving the good quality of your video recordings is more about using the right software than your equipment. In this article, we will tell you how to improve your video quality using AVS Video Editor.
AVS Video Editor is a powerful and easy-to-use video editing tool, which can easily improve the quality of your videos. With this software, you are able to turn your recordings into something really remarkable. Just follow our tips below and take the quality of your video content to the next level.
1. Correct colour in your videos
After shooting your home video with an analogue camera or capturing video from an old VHS tape, you might find that the hue, saturation and brightness of the original video differs drastically from the expected result. In this case, you need to even out those values to bring your video colour in line with what your eye perceives.
If you don’t have a lot of experience in video editing, AVS Video Editor allows you to correct colours automatically. You can also do it manually by adjusting such parameters, as brightness, temperature, contrast, saturation, gamma and hue. Changing these settings will make you video look exactly the way that you want it.
Learn more about colour correction in this guide.
2. Fix your blurry videos
Imagine that you captured a beautiful video on a trip to Venice and transferred it to your computer. It plays perfectly, but after a few minutes you notice the video is blurry. Video blur may occur during recording or when you save videos on your computer. You can easily solve this problem by applying the Sharpen effect offered by AVS Video Editor.
The Sharpen effect helps to bring a blurry image into focus by increasing the contrast of adjacent pixels. You can apply this video effect to the entire file or its certain parts. Adjust the sharpening level and set the area within the video image to which the effect will be applied to get the perfect result.
Learn more about restoring blurry videos in this guide.
3. Stabilize your shaky videos
If you shoot your video using a handheld camera or a smartphone, you will probably end up with shaky shots. Unless this look is intentional, you’ll probably want to stabilize your video to eliminate unwanted motion. The best way to do it is using the Stabilization effect offered by AVS Video Editor.
This effect smooths out unwanted camera shake and extraneous jitters in just a few clicks. Use the Compensation slider to increase or decrease the stabilization degree. With precise fine-tuning, you can get exactly the look and feel you want.
Learn more about stabilizing shaky videos in this guide.
4. Zoom in your videos
There is a number of reasons why you might need to zoom in your video. For example, you just want to improve the entire video record that was shot from a long distance or focus your audience’s attention on specific details in your video. To enlarge your video image, just apply the Pan and Zoom effect available in AVS Video Editor.
This effect allows you to apply smooth zooming and panning to your video. Using different ready-to-use presets in the settings (for example, Diorama, Zoom In Left/Right and Zoom Out Left/Right) you can achieve the zoom-in effect you are looking for.
Learn more about zooming in videos in this guide.
5. Rotate your videos
You have made the perfect video, but it turns out to be upside down or sideways? It can happen because when we are excited and trying to catch some moments quickly, we are holding the phone in the most natural way. You can easily fix this problem by changing the incorrect orientation of your video in AVS Video Editor.
Using the Rotate effect, you can rotate the entire video or a certain scene only in the desired direction, changing its orientation from the landscape mode to the portrait one and vice versa. You can also get an original effect rotating the video clip by an arbitrary number of degrees and setting the fade in and fade out effect areas.
Learn more about rotating videos in this guide.
As you can see, improving your video recordings with AVS Video Editor is really easy. Try AVS Video Editor right now!

Summer is about birthdays, picnics, pool parties and many other memorable events bringing funny moments! Still don’t have cool videos to have a hearty laugh at? In this article we’ll share some basic tips for a funny video, no matter if you have a pro camera or just a smartphone.
The success of our funny video consists of three components properly combined — sound, effects and captions. Off we go!
Step 1. Add epic music and sounds
Have you ever noticed how much a good audio track can add to a footage? Frightening and martial music can turn a completely neutral scene into a chilling one. Apply inspiring melodies to the most important parts in your video and make it catchy!
The Internet offers a wide range of free short sounds to emphasize necessary moments in your clip like disappointment, giggle, astonishment, laugh and so on.
If hardware allows, you can also record your own comic voiceover for a better storytelling in the video.
You can also edit the audio track — for instance, speeding up somebody’s voice will make them sound as a cartoon character. Slowing it down will accompany the slow motion effect perfectly.
Step 2. Play with effects
This is exactly where most AVS Video Editor tools rush into the game. Effects improve the footage visually but remember that measure is a treasure, so choose them carefully!
If your video has a long-lasting segment and you think it can make viewers bored, it is not necessary to cut these moments out. You can just speed up the frame instead — it looks fun and shows the process of doing something. Don’t forget about comic music.
Something suddenly (say, a beach ball) smashes the camera? Turn it to advantage with effects like Broken Glass or TV Simulation.
Find yourself in front of a fun-house mirror with the Cylinder or Sphere effects.
Got a really epic moment? Add slow motion like we see it during the football play by slowing the speed down.
Step 3. Choose captions
The text is useful not only in DIY videos and complicated tutorials, often it is good for simple entertaining videos.
Why not use Comic Balloons with possible thoughts of your dog or apply the Star Wars titles for the funny contest video?
You can enlist who participated in your footage with Black Screen Credits or just add humorous comments. After all, subtitles can help when we can’t here somebody’s speech or want to watch a vid without sound.
Finally, note that the video must give viewers the idea about the whole story within first 15 seconds, otherwise many can simply get bored. Make it short and clear!
Remember our tips list is not exhaustive, and the output fully depends on your imagination. We have something for you to make video editing easier:
