Verdict: Lyric Video Maker allows you to create amazing lyric videos and Karaoke videos using its features such as choosing fonts, colors, size, changing backgrounds, adding special effects, and more. I like the ability to work in one of two modes: for pro users (Full) and novice ones (Wizard). Plus, you can quickly figure out how to use the program by reading the step-by-step video tutorials available on the website.

This software will appeal to bloggers, beginner editors and videographers, as well as creators who are looking for a simple and creative tool for daily use. Another significant plus is the ability to use the program without time limits. However, there are some functional limitations.

Wizard Mode for Beginners

After I downloaded the program, I prepared the song and the lyrics files. Typically, the song file is in MP3 format while the lyrics one is *.LRC or *.TXT. Mind you should keep each line of each lyric if it is a .txt file.

When Lyric Video Maker was installed and the files were ready, I opened the program and selected the LRC button. Beginners will love the ability to create a lyric video in Wizard Mode. This option makes the video-making process extremely simple. It includes step-by-step guidelines that you should follow. When you complete each step, click the Next button to continue.

In this mode, it is easy to synchronize the playback progress of the music and the display of the lyrics. You can also set the start time and end time and choose the style. After you got the lyrics file (*.rzlrc), you need to return to the main interface. Insert this file into the Text line, fill the Audio Line with the music file, and provide background video footage/images to the Video Line.

When everything is done, you should click the "Render" button. In the end, you will get an impressive lyrics video. Before downloading or uploading your clip to YouTube, you can preview it.

Do More Customization in the Full Mode

By selecting Full Mode, you will not have on-screen instructions for working with the program. On the other hand, there will be more options for customizing the video. You will be able to choose a font for the lyrics. Besides, you can change the font size, style, color, and any other parameters, as well as adjust the video mode.

This video editor for YouTube allows you to customize various parameters, such as the lyric display mode, lyric display area, and more. What's more, you can add backgrounds and enhance colors with the basic Brightness & Contrast tools.

Plus, the program has many useful tools such as cut, trim, split, join, merge, mix, rotate, crop, fade in/out, resize, fill blur, zoom in/out, mute, adjust volume, stretch/keep ratio, change video color, etc. You can select the shape of video clips: a circle, star, heart shape, and other options.

You can mix several videos on the same screen and add music. It can be one or more tracks depending on your taste. Moreover, you can insert your own explanation instead of music.

Built-In Lyrics Templates

You can speed up your workflow with lyrics templates included in this lyrics video maker app. Just one click and you will apply the selected template. Double-click to check the result. Besides, you can use different font styles for each lyric if you like.

You can also save applied effects, video duration, position, and other parameters as a template. When you want to use the same objects again, you will need to click the "TemplateTPL" button and Lyric Video Maker will do everything for you.

Many 2D/3D Lyrics/Karaoke Video Modes

I liked that this music video maker contains many features to choose from. You can use scrolling lyrics options, 3D paragraphed lyrics, various lyric display styles, and more. Karaoke Effect Show lets you apply the Karaoke overlay font color, shine color, outline color, shade color, and more. By selecting "Margin" or "Align" you can adjust the layout of the lyrics.

To use different font types, sizes, colors, and angles, you need to click "Font+" when the Word by word option is selected. You can also add a bouncing object to your video. The program also allows you to select different fonts, layouts, and motion effects for each sentence.

To create an eye-catching 3D lyrics video, use the "Best 3D Show" option. Select the desired 3D Rhythm frequency and type by clicking the "3D Rhythm" button. There are 8 predefined 3D layouts to choose from. You can also modify various settings to build a new 3D layout.

I added scrolling lyrics to the video. To do this, I switched "Normal Show" to "Paragraphs/3D Paragraphs". After that, the first line became blue, and I saw a paragraph bar. I right-clicked on the serial number to find "Mark as a Paragraph". I repeated these actions until the last paragraph.

Lyric Video Maker provides a tool for splitting text into paragraphs automatically. You need to click “Auto Split” and select the appropriate option.

Finally, you need to set up the lyric display style. Then add the lyric file to the Text Line and the audio file to the Audio Line.

Selection of Effects for Creating Professional Videos

You can apply impressive motion and special effects when creating brilliant 2D/3D Karaoke or Lyrics videos. If you want more creativity and uniqueness, then take advantage of drawing digital graffiti and make your video stand out.

You can choose one of the built-in particle effects or create your own effect, select transitions from hundreds of special effects, or add fantastic mask effects (Light and Shadow Effects).

The program also contains a variety of text special effects. By the way, you can change the font, style, color, size, shade, change the order of the lines, adjust the duration of the animation, set the minimum individual unit of the text, and customize other parameters for each effect.

Ability to Translate Lyrics into Multiple Languages

You can create lyrics in multiple languages. To do this, you need to add a new layer and copy the lines you need from the old layer. Then open the prepared file of another language translation and copy the lines from it to a new layer.

Lyric Video Maker Prices

You can use Lyric Video Maker for free but with some limitations. For example, you cannot create 3D videos. Also, there will be a watermark on the screen recording and the maximum video length is limited to 5 minutes.

However, the developers offer several paid plans with a large bundle of features. There is a Gold Edition for $29.99 or a Platinum Edition for $49.99. The Gold Edition allows you to work with videos up to 10 minutes long and record your screen without a watermark. Platinum Edition does not limit users by video length.
