Creating an edit is what you’d expect from a professional-level video editor. You have more than one layer, it can preview clips, set and process entry and exit points. Point to clips and handles at both ends, depending on where the cursor is positioned.
If you don’t want to invest a lot of money and effort into your video editing exploits, there are a few free options. Of course, if you use a Mac, the excellent iMovie comes with it. For PC users,Windows 10’s Photos app lets you join, trim, and even add background music, 3D animated effects, and titles to video. I’ve been seeing a lot of attention paid to creating title effects in the applications over the past year. Apple Final Cut Pro X has added 3D title creation, which is pretty spiffy, letting you extrude 2D titles and rotate them on three axes.
Some video editing applications now include seamlesstransition tools. Picture a scene showing people at a beach, and suddenly the sky zooms in and your in Rome or Paris, but it looks like you’re in the same place because the transition glued the two scenes together using the sky. There are plenty of other examples of seamless transition;this magnificent videoshows a good selection of them, and is partly responsible for starting the trend.
Shotcut is completely open-source and free, while another free option, Lightworks has paid options that remove a 720p output resolution limit. Note also that both Shotcut and Lightworks run on Linux as well as Windows and Mac.
Corel VideoStudio in its latest version also adds 3D Titling, though not as powerful as Apple’s. PowerDirector’s Title Designer offers transparency, gradient color, border, blur level, and reflection in titles; Magix has impressive title templates, complete with animations. Premiere Elements offers a nifty title effect in which your video fills the text characters, and Corel followed suit with a similar tool in VideoStudio. Look for an application that lets you edit titles in WYSIWYG mode, so that you can type, format, and time it right over the video preview.
The highlighted part is on the inside or outside of this tip. FlashBack is a full-motion-based screen recorder with a simple handy interface. You can capture your screen, along with webcam and mic, and then make the recording better with built-in editing tools and by adding captions, arrows, images, and highlights.
