YouTube Video Editing
YouTube has its own video editor, but you wouldn’t know it since they barely ever promote it. The thing is, the video editor is actually a good choice, free and easy to use. It’s a perfectly good choice to make your videos look extra special. You can cut, clip together, drop in music, and create titles, transitions, annotations and more using this free software.
You can do quick fixes, such as adjusting the light, working with saturation, contrast and color temperament. You can also make things slow motion, or faster motion and even to time lapse effects on your video. You can even automatically blur out all faces if you need to.You can immediately do these things right from the window, save, and then move on to the next feature.
