Top 7 Best Video Editing Software For YouTube (2017)

Top 7 Best Video Editing Software For YouTube (2017)


Hi there
This is mrinal once again And a lot of you for a good video recommendation
So, here we are. After watching this video,
You have a decent idea of What good video editors are their in the market
(both free and paid one) And which one is the best for you. Now, when it comes to video editing
different people have different needs Like – Some people just want to combine few clips
And call it a day, While others
Wants total control over video editing Like color grading, chroma key, and sleek
animation So, to make things simple I’ve divided this video in 3 parts. 1st is entry level video editng apps Where the most you can do is – combine two
clips, Maybe add few text and background music
And that’s it. 2nd is the Intermediate video editing software Where you can do a little more than
Just combining two clips Like text animations, cool transition and
video effects And 3rd is the advance video editors That are powerful enough for producing an
entire movie They lets you edit your videos frame by frame
have advanced color grading options And support for 3rd party plugins. Now, obviously, we can not go in-depth in
each video editor I’ll try to pick up some of the best one
Each category. Depending on price, support for OS
And ease of use So, like always, all the download links will
be in the description below And turn on the subtitles if you want to And with that being said,
let’s get started? ——-
ENTRY LEVEL VIDEO EDITOR —— When it comes to decent and free video editing
software I guess,
Windows movie maker is the first thing to cross most our mind. 5 Years back, I made my first video on this
channel using Movie maker But, unfortunately, those days are gone As of 2017,
Microsoft, no only Ended the support for Movie maker,
But it’s also no longer available for download. Now, some of you may be thinking,
Well what about from downloading it from other sources Well, I did try that
And it simply doesn’t work. So, the most functional alternative to movie
maker I could find out is Shotcut [it’s like the word shortcut but
with no R] This video editor is
free and open source and available for Windows, Mac and linux But how good is it? Well, first time you open the app There is just one big screen window
No timeline or library options But, after watching couple of YT videos
I found out you need to enable these two from the settings. Now, it’s like all the traditional video
editing software Just import your clips And drag and drop them in your timeline. Basic options like trimming and joining two
clips are there You can also add layers
For background music And a bit of text and transitions
By going to filter options And that’s it,
At most, this is a pretty basic video editing app
But, when it comes to free This is best you get iMovie [MacOS] However, if you are rich enough to have macOS
Then look no further than iMovie It’s free and already come pre- installed
on your mac Just like all Apple products,
The interface is super intuitive When you first launch the app
It ask you Whether you want to create a movie from the
pre built template Or do everything from scratch. In the themes, you just have drag and drop
your files And it’ll take care of everything else,
from transitions, to music everything But for most part, you want to start with
no themes So, just like the previous one
drag and drop files to your library and then import them your timeline
Cut them Add some text, But, what’s different here is The timeline is magnetic So, if you mean one clip, the associate audio
file and text also movie And it also support bunch of cool text animation
and transitions Overall, as long as you don’t need fancy
stuff like keying, color correction iMovie should work find for you There are many Youtubers with more than 1
millions subs Who still uses iMovie. And the best part is,
It also works on iPhone and iPad INTERMEDiATE Video Editing Software Now, there are 3 intermediate video editing
apps That I’ll like to recommend The first two are bit easy to use,
But that comes with a price While the 3rd one comes with a bit of learning
curve And require a fairly powerful system to run But, if you can cope with that
Then it’s one of the most powerful video editor
That’s available for free. Movavi So, the first one is – Movavi
It’s cost $40, and is available for both Windows and MacOS Now, since,
I’ve done a separate video on that I’ll make it short So, what I really like about this app
It’s simple and yet have basic and somewhat advanced features Like some modern text animations,
Transitions You can even add chroma key and KEN burn etc. The only problem, I had with movavi is
They don’t have a media import windows So, everything you include goes directly
To your timeline. Which make it difficult to work with large
projects. overall, this app is a good mixture of simplicity
and features. Powerdirector But if you need a more powerful video editor
Then, try powerdirector It’s available for windows and cost somewhat
around $70 I’ve used this editor for 2 years,
Before switching to macOS And IFRC,
Another popular youtuber tim schofield Still uses it till date. Now, I won’t get into much features
As it as all That you’ll ever need
Trim, cut, join Layer supports
Animation, video effect You name it. But yeah, recently they have added supported
for 360 videos and 4k Which, most video editor in this category
does not do Overall, if you are looking for some long-term
video editor Which is easy to learn, has all the basic
features And doesn’t require an extremely power system Then Powerdirector make sense.
DaVinci Resolve by black magic This one a lot powerful and feature rich than
powerdirector And still it’s available for both
Windows and Mac OSX for free So, what’s the play here? Well we’ll come to that later on
But first Let’s take a look at the editor. And the first thing you’ll notice while
running this app is You need a powerful system
At Least 8GB of RAM, i5 and a graphic card Even on my fairly powerful PC with above specs
Was not powerful enough, But it still work So, when you open the app
there are 4 options at the bottom. MEDIA EDIT COLOR and DELIVER So, in the media option, your import all your
clips In the edi panel you arrange them and add
text and transition as you want They are pretty heavy on color correction,
which is why there is separate option for this
And finally export, with your desired settings. And as you see, you don’t get these kind
of options in a free editor So, what their play? Well, first of all the app is freemium, so
very few option are premium But, what my theory is, They want to compete the big players like
After effects And for that, they first need a good user
base, Especially the students, to learn this program. Kind of like why
Adobe tolerate Photoshop piracy Let it for for free now and make money from
the organization later on. But anyways, my point is, If you are looking for a robust video editor
for free Then there is your answer ADVANCE VIDEO EDITOR And finally the advanced video editing software
Where you can customize every bit of your editing process You can even make a movie out of it And no wonders Adobe Premier Pro has to be on this list
It’s available for both window and mac and With creative suite it cost around 240$/year
( yup the price is too high) Now, there are thousands of features in premiere
pro That there is no way, I can list all of them And honestly, Haven’t touch PP for past 2
years, So, I’m not sure
If I’m even capable of review it But there are two biggest reason,
Why you want to learn PP (now noticed, I didn’t say use PP but learned) So, first is, you have spend a good time learning
the nity gritty of this software If you like to play with a lot of frames
And move things around like we see in game theorist video
Then PP is the only and best video editing app If you have plans to say inside the adobe
ecosystem, like illustrator and After effects I choose to live with FCP It is available on on MacOS and cost $300 And I can go on and on
With its features But the real reason Why creator choose FCP over anything is
Rendering time Man the hardware software optimization is
so good that it takes less than less than 8 mins to render
a intensive 10 min video Other programs would take hours to do that.
That said, If you have macOS
Then this is the best program for for crisp yet simple videos
Where the most you do is add one layers over the other
With few animation here and there Before you go, If you get any value out of this video
And want to give it back And then join audilble By going to audibletrial.com/mrinal You get free audiobook
Amazon get a new customer And I get a small commminsion So, let’s wrapping up everything Just like for anything The more you spend you spend
The more features you get Though, the system requirement and learning
curve also increase with that as well. Overall, If you are looking for basic video editor
That gets the job done Go for shortcut or imovie if you have mac For more balanced video editor,
Like for say YouTube I would go with PowerDirector And if you need more control on every aspect
of editing Then go with premier pro Or FCP if you have mac I personally use FCP on my iMac and
I’ve no plans of switching to anything else. Well this is all for now, I’m going to explore this video editing
a lot more in future So, if you have any video request let me know
in the comments Also, subscribe, and like this video for more So, yeah, that’s pretty much it And I’ll see on Wednesday,
And yes, like always thanks for watching.
