As the base software is concerned, I find that Movavi is a great value. I have also had an interaction with their customer support team, and had no issues.

Customer Support: I reached out to them because I purchased the Plus version thinking I did not need the features of the Video Suite. After a few weeks, I decided that I wanted to do Screen Capture (which requires the suite). I reached out to see if they would allow me to upgrade by only paying the difference in the initial purchase. They responded in less than 4 hours, allowing me to do just that, with no hassles. The representative was courteous and professional. I cannot speak for the technical team, as I have had no issues with crashing or functionality after a month of use.

Software: As someone who is new to video editing (virtually NO experience), I find the software to be quite intuitive and easy to use. Once you learn the basics, you can do some really neat things. I was able to produce a video that everyone in my organization says looks very professional.

Where I take issue with Movavi, is their incessant pricing strategy. I refer to their software as a depreciating asset, because in order to expand your collection of themes you pay an exorbitant premium. A simple theme pack (which includes a few backgrounds, stickers, and transitions) will set you back between $10 and $40. So if you purchase a few themes, the software price suddenly goes from entry level to semi-professional.

They do give you the option to subscribe to ALL the themes for $99/annually, however, again this adds up quickly. Plus, what happens when you want to refresh a video made a month before the subscription expired using multiple themes? You are stuck either purchasing the themes or having to redo everything with the basics.

Bottom Line:
If you wish to learn the basics of video editing and create some great videos using their basic tools, this is a great choice (for Windows). It is also a solid solution if you are trying to create some semi-professional videos but lack the funds to buy professional software. However, over time this software can add up to over $1000 (if you buy all their themes). If they change the basic business model this could be an amazing product.
