We asked a cross-section of bloggers the below question.
What’s your go-to video editing tool and why?
Here is what they had to say.
I converted to a Mac from a PC about two years ago, and I really have never looked back. iMovie on the Mac is just so easy to use, and comes with so many excellent bells and whistles, even an editing beginning like me is able to create some great vids super fast on there. I can’t recommend it enough to everyone, or moving the Mac generally. No more blue screen of death, and great videos. What more could a girl ask for?
I always used to use Adobe Premier Pro but these days my go to editing software is definitely Final Cut Pro, it’s just so simple and easy to use and doesn’t take us long to export as Premier does!
I use my iPhone and iPad to take videos which have inbuilt ability to crop videos. I’ve also used Animoto which is s great online tool to make video and photo slideshows.
I’m not where I need to be with video, but rely on Sony Movie Studio Platinum when I do create. It’s surprisingly comprehensive, and good value for money. Now, if somebody could just point me to a decent Vine editor on Android…
PowerDirector. It has absolutely everything you could want in a video editor, is easy to pick up and learn, and comes in at an excellent price. It’s also GPU accelerated, so if you have a hefty video card, your video transcoding jobs will run a lot quicker.
I use Final Cut Pro, as it is simple to use and easy with a lot of tools to sort out problems with videos. However, I also use Windows Movie Maker if on the go and want to make a simple video because it does the job well.
Kinemaster is an awesome Android video editing app. There’s a free version, but the premium version which has a small monthly fee is full of awesome features and themes.
I love iMovie. It’s so easy to use! You can easily clip everything together, pop in some music and you instantly have a video you cannot wait to share with people!
Screen-Cast-O-Metic. Easy, straightforward. I’m not making cinema features here – I’m talking to my people, and I don’t want too much power getting in the way. My biggest challenge is making sure the light from the window is right, and then I’m off.
I use Adobe Premiere Elements which I bought bundled with Photoshop Elements. This is mainly because I had training on it in an old job and I found other options to be a little limited in comparison. I normally favour free apps and tools, but this has definitely been worth the initial expense and has saved me a lot of time.
I use iMovie to edit videos – it took me a while to get used to it at first, but now it’s a great tool and I would be lost without it!
Final Cut Pro !!!!!
iMovie – it’s just there on my Mac, free, and so many great how-to guides on YouTube that it’s easy to work out how to do pretty much anything on it.
