AviTricks is a non-linear, non-destructive AVI video editor with real-time preview. It makes cutting and joining footage easy and includes a wide range of built-in adjustable effects that can be used separately or in combination. (Effects include dissolves, mirror image, sepia, iris effects, fades, TV-shop and many more.)
The AviTricks Video Editor is still in production but, inspired by the overwhelming response to AviSplit, we have decided to publish an advance release, freeware version with basic instructions. We hope you enjoy working and playing with AviTricks and we welcome any comments, suggestions or questions you might have. The final version should be ready by December 2004.
The tree-structure and sub-project approach allows an unlimited combination of filters, effects and overlays, and will also make it easy to stack new properties (things like morphing and opaque overlays) into existing effects as these become available. You can split large projects into workable units that can be combined at will or farmed out to different users for a joint venture. Video and audio tracks are represented individually on the timeline, as are filters, overlays, effects and transitions. The intensity of the different properties of all these different features can be adjusted gradually with a rubber-band interface that enlarges when activated.
The duration and position of all elements can be adjusted with a click of the mouse. Even video-editing novices can use AviTricks to produce professional results in either .AVI or Windows Media Format.
They’ve called it "classic" to reserve the possibility of a shareware version called AviTricks based on the same principle.

Besides the preview screen, the video you are working on is also represented clearly and graphically on a timeline and a tree-structure. Both of these fields are active and easy to work.
