Before the digital revolution, most of the videos we got were shot on film. But now, we can shoot our favorite videos with many kinds of camcorders like Sony Handy cam, Sony Nex-vg30, Canon C500 and more. And in the old days, it is really hard for us to do editing to these videos since it involve so many trifles such as cropping the individual frames and other things, which makes the whole process very complicated and annoying. It is really a pain for the photographers. But thankfully, we have got some useful editing software to make things much easier today. And amazingly, almost all users can get accessed to them by installing in their computers. Let’s come to have a look at what kinds of editing software are available for use now.
Firstly, we will see two editing tools for free.
In fact, Animoto is not professional or technically video-editing software, but Animono.com is a free website to allow users to create slideshows arranged in your own way. For example, you can ass some music to the slideshow or change the background by using the function provided by the website.
We all know that YouTube is the hottest and most popular video sharing website all over the world, but do you know that it also provides some editing features like trimming the videos, adding titles or effect and more? Perhaps this function is not comprehensive or powerful enough for someone who wants the videos to be edited professionally, but it is worthy trying for the people who wants to do editing sometimes.
Secondly, we will welcome another two editors especially suitable for the beginners.
1. Windows Movie Maker
It is pre-installed editing software on all Windows computers and it can be downloaded from Microsoft free of charge. It is a good editing tool for the people who are just getting started to editing. Windows Movie Maker can do the basic editing tasks such as trimming the video clips, adding soundtracks, etc, but it can’t support the conversion from one video format to another one freely.
Different from Windows Movie Maker, iMovie is pre-installed on all Apple computers. It is especially designed for the Mac and iOS (iPhone, iPad, ipad mini and iPod touch).It is a powerful editing software and is very easy to use even for the new users. Nowadays, more and more users of camcorders prefer to do post editing in iMovie thanks to its excellent performance and simple usage.
For instance, users of Sony series camcorders would choose to import sony handycam to imovie for extension editing or transcode nex-vg30 to imovie while on the other hand, users of other brands of camcorders like Panasonic or Canon find it good enough to edit HC-X900 AVCHD in iMovie or transport Canon C500 MXF to iMovie for customized editing. So, what is your choice?
Lastly, we will have a quick glance at the more advanced editing software.
1. Adobe Premiere Pro
Adobe Premiere Pro is a part of Adobe Creative Suite which is a graphic design, video editing and web development program. Compared to the editors mentioned above, Adobe Premiere Pro is more advanced with more comprehensive editing function.
2. Final Cut Pro X
Final Cut Pro X is professional software developed for OS X from Apple. It is a powerful editing tool to provide a best video or files with editing function.
