Top Video Editing Apps

What are the Best Video Editing Apps?

Making videos for your website (or for fun) can seems tricky, complicated, and even slightly foreboding, especially if you are a beginner. However, it really doesn’t have to be. Today, smartphones make capturing high quality footage easy and accessible. The only tricky part, it seems, is editing. If you are a just a beginner when it comes to video editing, don’t stress because it isn’t complicated. You don’t need fancy editing software like the kind Skillman Video Group uses. All you need is your mobile device.

Video Editing Apps for Social Media

If you’re looking to edit beautiful videos to promote your business on an Instagram page, then these apps are perfect for you. On Magisto, you can choose the style of video you want, the footage you have, and whatever music you want to use. It makes creating video content for your social media pages simple and affordable, because the app also happens to be free! And the videos are already formatted for Instagram so they can be uploaded without issues.

Another free video editing app for Instagram or Facebook is called Hyperlapse. It’s a fun way to capture long moments in a short amount of time. For example: a sunset or sunrise.

Apps for Longer Videos

If you need to edit a video that’s a bit longer than the typical 60 seconds Instagram time, then these apps will suit you much better. WeVideo uses cloud storage to access your footage so you don’t have to download the video and use up all your storage space. WeVideo does have a free option, but it puts a watermark on your video, which isn’t always ideal. However, it is a great app for editing quick videos on your home, without having to use up space on your device.

Adobe Premiere Clip is a free mobile version of Adobe Premiere, a popular video editing software used by most Boston video production companies. The free mobile version may not be to the industry standard, but it is easier to use and has more features available than iMovie or any other basic video editing software. On this mobile version, you can trim, drag, and edit clips to create the perfect video. You can also change the lighting and speed of the video, and then upload it directly from the app to whatever social media platform you desire.

Video Editing Programs for Desktops

Although this post is targeting mobile users, it is also important to know what desktop video  editing software is available to you in case you decide to branch out. iMovie or Windows Movie Maker are the simple editing software that are most likely already installed on your computer. For macs it’s iMovie, for Windows computers it is the latter. You can also purchase Final Cut Pro on a mac, which is essentially a more advanced version of iMovie. Most Boston video production companies use a software called Adobe Premiere Pro, which is easy to use once you figure out how to navigate it. The industry standard for most tv shows and movies is Avid, but odds are you won’t be using that to edit your videos any time soon.

Editing your videos may seem like a strange a foreign task if you’re new to it, but the trick is to start small and build your way up. Mobile friendly video editing apps are an excellent way to start, and you won’t even have to leave the couch to make a visually pleasing video for your website.
