There are so many comments and I just can’t read them all. I need an simple advice. I started shooting short videos in 4k (I use Lumix G7) and I want to trim and combine them together and make a max 2min videos. So, I don’t need nothing fancy, just to add some music, transition effects etc. I saw your list but my main concern is if I could edit videos on my pretty low laptop configuration. Can you help me with this? Thank you.
Hey Paul, Iove this article and thanks for sharing. I keep reading reviews about Content Samurai but can’t make up my mind because of the price. I understand it has a ton of value which I can kind of justify for the price but then again in this reviewhttps://www.digitclicks.com/your-video-content-savior-content-samurai-review/ they are saying it is great. Would love to get your opinion on it and is it something someone needs when first starting out. Thanks again for the tips. I’m on the fence if I should sign up or not.
Here is my problem. I use a camcorder to record my pastors sermons. The audio of his voice is muddled and hard to understand, So I’ve been recording his voice on a digital audio recorder hooked to our sound board. This audio is very understandable. I’ve been using Microsoft Movie Maker, but lost it when my computer died. I cannot download it anymore and it was not that good at syncing the separate audio track to the video track. I need a simple editor that can add in a new audio voice track and sync it to the video.
As a beginner users, it is difficult to use as it is designe for pros. It is totally free to use and distribute. The interface is customizable and flexible color settings. On the other hand, if you a semi-pros or want to improve your video edting to a higher level, this free video editor is best for you. The thing is you need to spend many time and energy to learn it. You can have a try to see if you like it or not.
So there you go I'm just going through the rest of it I'm previewing it and checking it's all there and when you are done you can click 'looks good continue' and gets on to section where you are generating the final video. This just takes you a couple of minutes. You can go away and make your coffee, and you do another website and you come back and it would have done it's thing in the background that's absolutely fine as I said content samurai has an awesome image finder and actually even gives you a link you can reference just in case YouTube gets funny about you having various images and stuff in there. I always think it is good to reference where you get images from because hey the photographers put the time it's going to take them so if I can I am going to reference them and content samurai gives you a nice link straight to....you know it automatically generates it so you can link that straight away really easily and this is just going through generation slides and video. It's, I mean content samurai what it's done for my company and all my clients that I work with as well it allows me to create videos superfast and actually have impact and get found in the rankings and I can really say it's the ones who that has literally changed the way we create contents and changed the way people are receiving our contents. In another post I will talk about the ways that you can also you this video to create other contents but its endless....we create a podcast out of this, we created video podcast, we export it to slides, share so create a slide deck and it's so many more ways that people can now view my content because we run it through content samurai, so pretty much any blogger, any business owner, any startup certainly just to have this ability to create so much extra content and content that people want is just priceless.
I have read your reviews and am leaning to the Power Director 16 or the Muvee Reveal Finale. I will try both but I have 70 years of movies that have been converted from Legacy Box and now sit on my computer. My biggest issues has been finding a way just to shorten what may be 6 hours of Christmas day with the kids down to a 15 minute video that is fun to watch. Also, all of the old movies from my parents and hopefully enhancing the video quality. I am 63 years old and just starting out on this journey with little tech knowledge. I am looking for the easiest program that I can sit down for 20 minutes and not have to re-learn what to do.
Hi Lance, thanks for an informative article. I’m currently editing my YouTube videos on a 5year old laptop and Movie Maker. My problem is it crashes a lot and I have to exit and start over. I would like something with more features than Movie Maker and am also in the market for a new computer. Filmora or Power Director seems like it would fit my needs, but my question is what should I be looking for in a computer to handle all the video editing. Processor, graphics card, RAM, etc. Thanks again.
You can also use the build-in video converter tools to freely convert video/audio format to another format. It is a non-linear tool, which means you can place video clips in the timeline freely. You can also export your video to IG, FB and YouTube, which is powerful as a free video editor. You can also edit 4K and HD videos. For this point, not every free video editor can do.
