MixBit 1.0.3 on iPod touch
Editing, deleting and rearranging your clips is simple with MixBit.

Vine, Instagram et al have really shaken up video and social networking, so perhaps it’s no surprise that the co-founders of YouTube have decided to get in on the act with this, their entry into the crowded world of social video.

The good news is that they’ve clearly not been standing still since inventing YouTube, as MixBit offers some novel ways of capturing, editing and sharing video with others. Like Vine, individual video clips are shot in short bursts – up to 16 seconds, but unlike Vine you can then stitch together these clips to create a video of up to an hour in total, which can subsequently be shared via Facebook, Twitter or email.

Clips are stored as independent elements, but play as one seamless video – they can be duplicated, trimmed, deleted or rearranged at will, all from your iPhone’s screen with a few taps or drag and drops.

It’s simple enough. Flick through the orientation wizard, then start building your own videos. You’ll immediately see videos contributed by other users (emphasising the public nature of MixBit), which you tap to view in their entirety or to grab individual clips from.

Alternatively, tap the + button to start shooting your own clips. It’s a little fiddly – you’re prompted to shoot in landscape mode for best results, but must tap and hold on the screen to record your footage, which can make demos and so on a little fiddly. Still, it’s easy to reshoot takes and then delete botched clips later.

Once your clips have been shot you can edit them using the controls – trim unwanted elements, duplicate for extended repeat shots, drag to a new position on the timeline or ditch entirely. Once you’re happy with your creation, publish it to the MixBit site for others to enjoy, plus share it with friends.

It’s pretty simple and straightforward to use – 16-second clips give you that bit more time for each shot, and the ability to stitch up to 256 together in a single movie coupled with reusing other people’s clips could ensure MixBit has a bright future.

Verdict:

Does the world need yet another social video clip creation tool? MixBit has enough about it to suggest that it might just.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
