Serif MoviePlus is video editing software created by Serif Europe that allows both professional and home users to edit digital video and digital images.
The latest release, MoviePlus X6, runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
From the early 2000s (decade), MoviePlus has developed an enthusiastic user base. Originally, it was designed largely for editing video from MiniDV camcorders, largely to produce DVDs. Version 4 released in 2004 was a complete re-write of the previous Version 1. It included the ability to edit and generate Windows Media files and MPEG files as well as DV-AVI. Version 4 ran on Windows 98 SE, Me, 2000 and XP. The current version X6 has added many new features including the capability to edit and generate QuickTime, MPEG-4 and High Definition HDV files, export as AVCHD Progressive and new QuickMovie themes.
MoviePlus is affordable and popular with home and semi-professional filmmakers. It can be used to edit material from FireWire-attached MiniDV video from a consumer digital video camera, professional DV camera or HDV camera. The software captures video onto the computer's hard drive, where it can be edited and processed. The result can be recorded on MiniDV tape, converted into a format suitable for replaying on a PC, converted into a format suitable for uploading to a web site, or burning onto a DVD. The current version of MoviePlus X6 requires a minimum of an Intel Pentium 4 Hyper-Threading processor or AMD Athlon XP processor and 1 GB of RAM.
