YouTube in the last few weeks or so has updated their video editing features.  Such as video trimming, audio effects (which is actually audio swap), visual effects, stabilization, lighting, and an all-in-one lighting option called, “I’m feeling lucky”.

I personally love what YouTube is doing here.  We heard about YouTube’s plan to start nurturing film-makers and enthusiasts last year, and they’ve not stopped since then.  GoAnimate was the start of it.

They now have a full video editing suite and animation section.

Vlix – video effects and text

Create great videos by applying video effects and adding text. Select from a variety of effects – fix effects, time altering effects, artistic effects and fun video borders. Add opening and closing text. It’s easy and completely free.

The YouTube Video editor lets you make quick edits to your uploaded YouTube videos. You can combine multiple clips, incorporate Creative Commons footage, enhance your clips with effects, and more.

One True Media video creation and editing

One True Media, simply powerful video creation. Robust, fast and easy video editing with real-time preview. Clip video and combine it with photos, transitions, effects, text, music and more. Edit as little or as much as you want.

  • Casey,

    What a fantastic video you made!

    I had already had a look at some of these features but your explanations made everything so much easier to get to grips with – thank you!!

    I still have to admit that, as much as I like video, not everybody comes over that well in front of the camera. That is not meant as a negative but just being realistic!


    • Thanks Nick so much man. I think that anyone can get in front of the camera. The music helps, the editing helps as well. Thanks so much for the compliment though.
