Hi Ben Simon here from Media Brighton TV.
We’ll be covering the Best Video Editing Software For YouTube (Pc, Mac & iPhone). Stay Tuned Ok so we’ll be covering a bunch of different
video editing software you can us to make your YouTube videos and start on your quest
for YouTube domination. First we’ll start with the free ones and then move up the price
range to the totally pro one’s at the top end. First up we have the YouTube editor which
is free. Go to www.youtube.co.uk/editor This is an online tool so you have to upload
your clips which can take you a bit of time. It is a starting point for editing but there
are better solutions out there. But now you know. Moving on… iMovie for mac this is a free pre loaded app
on your mac. If you don’t have it you can download it from the app store for around
$10. You can make Hollywood style trailers from
themed templates. You can choose from a bunch of themes when making your videos. This adds
some nice intro and outro animated graphics and name titles. I think apple are great at
hiding the complexity so the user experience is normally really good with a super simple
and easy-to-use interface. So this is highly recommended if you’re on a Mac. Next up is Movie maker for the pc. This again
is a free application. If it’s not pre loaded with windows you can download it from the
windows site (I’ll include a link in the description below).
You can do basic stuff like importing clips, Trim, split, speed them up or slow them down.
You can add titles, music and choose from themes. It’s a good starting point. But if
you have a bit of a budget then maybe try some of the ones coming up. lightworks which is available for the mac
& PC – There are free and pro versions of this software – I haven’t used Lightworks
myself but it seems to get a some good reviews online and would definitely be worth a look
at the free version so check it out. Ok so that covers the free one’s
If you really want to know the Best video editing software for YouTube then the next
lot are worth checking out. These ones are the paid one’s… First up we have Sony movie studio platinum.
It’s $60 – I have version 12 and it is a nice bit of kit for the price. It comes with some
brilliant effects such as the old TV effect, stabiliser, 3d title designer. You’ll defiantly
be able to make some cracking videos with this video editing software. If your on a
budget just get an older version for half price. Next is Screen flow $99 – So this is only
for the Mac, The good thing is it does both screen capture and editing. It’s simple & easy
to use. I’m not a mac user so I don’t use this but I know a lot of YouTubers do. This
is highly recommended if you’re a Mac user. And it’s very good value for what you get. The next video editing software is Camtasia
for the PC & MC. It’s $299 so quite pricey. Again this does both editing and screen capture.
It quick a high price for what it does. You could get Ok so here’s adobe premiere elements which
is video editing software for both Mac & Pc. So this is Adobe’s cut down, entry level editor.
It’s $99 but you can try it out for free for 30 days. It has a simple interface and although
it’s entry level it will do a lot, so it’s definitely worth a look. It has a favourite
moments feature which means you can easily chop out the good bits from a long clip. Their
Video story feature means you can use templates to make polished looking videos too. If you
start with elements you can progress onto their pro version later on. So talking of their pro version next up is
adobe premiere pro for both pc & mac. For this you have to pay a monthly subscription
and they Start around $20/month – This is what we use in our business and it’s awesome.
It think it is pretty easy to get started but lots to master. This is the professionals
choice. It will do anything you through at it and whether you editing YouTube videos
or a feature film this will have you covered. Next up is Apple final cut pro x which is
exclusively for the Mac. It comes in at $229 Again it’s a pro solution, it does a lot of
cool stuff and makes complex things very easy to do (in that typical apple approach) but
I found after using premier pro for many years it was a tricky to get my head round it. If
you have been using iMovie then this will be a more natural progression for you. One
cool thing is it automatically syncs audio if you are using a DSLR and you have separate
sound. Very cool. And finally My recommendation for the best video editing
software on the iPhone is iMovie (IOS app version) It’s a bargain at $5 and it’s a super
simple app to use but it’s also really powerful. Apple have really thought about how to make
this incredibly easy to use. It come with a bunch of templates for your animated intros
and outros. And you can get some amazing results with this. I’ve been using this a lot recently
and I’ve been blown away with it. So there you go. Now you know the Best Video
