Fine-tune preferences for maximum productivity (General, Files, Effects, Sharing, Acceleration)

from the official website.

Movavi Video Editor comes with various preferences that allow users to customize the software according to their needs and optimize its performance. Here's an explanation of each preference tab and when they might be useful:

General: The General tab in the Preferences window lets you set basic options for the application such as interface language, auto-update settings, and application behavior.

Files: The Files tab provides options for setting default folders for saving different types of files created within Movavi Video Editor. This can be helpful if you want to keep all your projects, exports, and other media files organized by creating separate folders on your computer. By customizing the default save locations for each file type, you ensure that your files are easily accessible and well-organized.

Effects: The Effects tab is where you can manage content packages for Movavi Video Editor effects. This preference tab allows you to set a folder for saving all your downloaded or purchased content packages. If you frequently use Movavi's extensive library of effects, it's a good idea to choose a folder with ample storage space for these files. Keeping them organized in one place makes it easier to access and apply the desired effects in your projects.

Sharing: The Sharing tab lets you manage your social network accounts for uploading videos directly from Movavi Video Editor. By setting up your social media accounts, you can save time and effort by sharing your edited creations with your followers without having to leave the application.

Acceleration: The Acceleration tab contains options for utilizing hardware acceleration technologies, if available on your computer. These technologies can significantly speed up the encoding and decoding process of media files, allowing you to save your videos faster and enjoy smoother performance while editing. If your system meets the requirements for these hardware acceleration technologies, enabling them in the preferences can make a noticeable difference in your video editing workflow.

First of all, choose the Preferences option within the Settings menu. The Preferences window will appear.

General Tab

Language Selection: Change the user interface language by choosing a preferred option from the provided list and pressing.
Automatically Check for Updates: Enable this feature to receive notifications when new updates are available, which can include free upgrades within the same version or discounted offers for new releases for registered users.
Usage Statistics Submission: Consent to sharing anonymous usage stats with Movavi's development team to help improve the software and resolve any issues more efficiently. This data contains no personal information and is solely used for software enhancement purposes.
Software OpenGL Implementation: If your system does not support the necessary OpenGL version, use this option. This can resolve OpenGL-related errors during program startup.
Notification Sound Upon Export Completion: Enable this setting to receive an audible alert when a project is exported as a media file.

Files Tab

Change the default folders for projects, output videos, audio recordings, stabilized videos by clicking on the three dots and selecting new directories.

Effects Tab

The Effects tab lets you manage content packages and set a custom folder. Click the three dots button to choose an alternate folder for storing effects packages. After setting up the new folder, restart Movavi Video Editor for changes to take effect.

Sharing Tab

Use the Sharing tab to manage social network accounts for uploading videos. Sign in by clicking the Sign In button, then follow the authentication instructions on your web browser.

Grant permissions for Movavi Video Editor to access your account and post videos.

Click Sign Out or use a different account by repeating the sign-in process.

Acceleration Tab

Enable Intel hardware acceleration for up to 400% faster H.264 and MPEG-2 video codecs with an Intel processor that supports Intel HD Graphics technology.
Enable NVIDIA hardware acceleration for up to 50% faster H.264 and MPEG-2 video processing using an NVIDIA graphics card that supports the technology.
Enable AMD hardware acceleration for efficient video processing with an AMD graphics card that supports this feature.
Optimize HD clips: activating Fast Track HD Acceleration enhances video editing performance by generating smaller-sized duplicate project files that replace the original high-definition files during the editing process. This technique enables smoother and quicker program operation, but it requires sufficient available storage space for Video Editor to create and utilize these copies. Upon completion of your editing phase, the original high-definition files will be reinstated prior to exporting the final video.

By fine-tuning these Movavi Video Editor preferences, you can ensure optimal productivity for your video editing tasks.
