Let’s take a look at each of them. 

Video 

This consists of a large collection of video processing tools. To add a video to be converted or edited, simply click the Video button or the Video Folder button for multiple videos.  

basic tasks when using VideoProc

Then choose the needed function from the bottom pane. The options for these can be accessed directly by double clicking or from the gear/codec icon next to added video.  

This is the standard process when editing videos in VideoProc. First choose video(s), then choose a function, configure related options and save the changes by clicking Done. Then finally process the videos by using the Run button.

Deshake: VideoProc makes video editing easy especially for shaky GoPro videos.
