Quik is another iPhone video editor app from GoPro. With Quik, you can quickly create good looking videos with just a few taps. The app has the option to import photos and videos from the photo library, or your Facebook, or Instagram account. Once you’ve selected the photos and videos you want to edit, you get the option to add Hilights to the video clips (just like in Splice). However, you get the options to change the format between cinema, and square. Also, you can change the background music for the video, as well add a plethora of filters to the video. Quik also has the option to add a title to the video.
Splice is a video editor from GoPro, the company behind some of the world’s best action cameras. You can import your photos and videos into the app, to edit them into a movie. The way the app works is simple: you just import the videos that you want to edit, and mark the important parts (Hilights, as the app calls them) of the video. You can then add music to the video, and then the app automatically clips the entire video according to the Hilights that you marked.
In the midrange, there's Adobe Premiere Elements, which is cross-platform between Macs and PCs, and offers a lot more features and lots of help with creating effects. Professionals and prosumers have powerful, though pricey options in Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere Pro. Final Cut is a deceptively simple application that resembles iMovie in its interface and ease of use, but it offers massively deep capabilities, and many third-party apps integrate with it for even more power. It also makes excellent use of the Touch Bar on the latest MacBook Pro, as shown in photo above. Premiere Pro uses a more traditional timeline and adds a large ecosystem of companion apps and plug-ins. It also excels in collaboration features.
If your camera exports a spherical fisheye or dual fisheye footage, some editing softwares require you to convert your footage into equirectangular format before you can edit them. Others, like Pinnacle Studio will work with these and convert them into equirectangular format for editing. If you have a device that captures your footage by stitching multiple cameras together (ex. a device that holds 6 GoPros to capture all 360 degrees), you will still be required to use stitching software to create a 360 file, video editing and stitching software are two very different things.
One of the capabilities that has been making its way into consumer-level video editing software is more-detailed color grading. Color wheels, curves, and histograms give editors control over the intensity of every shade. Related to this is support for LUTs (lookup tables), also known as CLUTs (color lookup tables). This staple of pro-level software lets you quickly change the look of a video to give it a specific mood. For example, think of the dark blue look of thriller movies like The Revenant. You can download LUTs for free from several sites or use those included with some video software to give your video a specific look. One well-known LUT type is the kind that can make a daytime scene look like it was shot at night.
We all know that Carl Zeiss is one of the world’s best lens makers and now they have come up with the VR Headset and Carl Zeiss VR One Cinema app. Unlike other VR apps, the best part of this one is that it supports almost all VR headsets like Google cardboard, FreeFly VR, Agnus VR on iPhones and anybody can enjoy the theatre like experience through this app. As for the user interface, this is perhaps the friendliest app of all these three apps. But there is a downside to this. This app downscale the videos during the streaming. However, the overall experience is pretty good no doubt!

KineMaster Video Editor is one of the best iPhone Video editing apps that you can use. The app offers professional level editing tools and yet makes it easy to start your video editing journey. One of the good things about this app is that it supports landscape, portrait, and square video formats. So whether you are editing your family video, a video for YouTube or for Instagram, you can edit your videos using KineMaster. Another good thing about this app is that even the free version doesn’t show any ads.
FilmoraGo is a video editor app by Wondershare. It's easily one of the best video editor apps. This video editor packs a whallop. You can do the basics like trim and cut, render, and that kind of stuff. It also includes the ability to play in reverse, do square videos (1:1) for Instagram, and 16:9 videos for YouTube specifically. It also has support for things like slow motion, transitions, music, overlays, and more. It's not half bad for what you get. There are in-app purchases that add to the power. However, most of the features are, in fact, free.
Nothing makes an impression like moving pictures with sound. That's why digital video continues to grow in importance online. Couple that trend with the ever-increasing availability of devices capable of high-resolution video recording—phones, GoPros, DSLRs—and the case for ever-more powerful video editing software becomes clear. Further, the software must be usable by nonprofessionals, and it has to keep up with newer formats such as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding) and 360-degree VR video, and it has to be able to handle 4K and higher resolution.
An extension of Foursquare, this popular app, which receives 8 million daily check ins, allows users to keep track of their favourite locations with their personal lifelog map, which they can opt to share with friends via Facebook and Twitter. Users can also add images and notes to remind themselves what was just so great about that particular business, earning sticker rewards along the way.
A great video isn’t just about images. Without clear audio you lose much of the emotional impact. Music can make a big difference in immersing your audience into your experience. Often time camera pick up white noise such as wind, which can take away from the playback experience. Why not add a soundtrack to your video to set the mood you want share. Be sure to pick a soundtrack to compliment the action on screen.

Don’t be silly. Showing me ads does nothing to recover your costs. You don’t make a cent by showing ads to people who hate ads – they’re NOT going to click them, they’re going to close them. All the ad does is briefly annoy them. How do you benefit by annoying people? You make you money from people who don’t mind ads and even click on some of them, and those people aren’t as likely to install an add blocker.
Advanced abilities continue to make their way into accessible, affordable, and consumer-friendly video editing software as each new generation of software is released. For example, multicam editing, which lets you switch among camera angles of the same scene shot with multiple video cameras, used to be a feature relegated to pro-level software. Now this and many other advanced effects are available in programs designed for use by nonprofessional enthusiasts.
If you like to use transitions and have various video clips, VideoPad includes more than 50 transition effects. After applying transitions, you can also adjust video speed to make slow motion or fast speed video effect. For audio, you can also record narations to make your video more detailed, which is a bonus for game lovers. However, this free video editor can't be used to make slideshow, so just pass it if you really care this function.
Video 360 is the first mediaplayer 360° on Windows Store. The 3D Virtual Reality Headsets are supported (such as Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard etc.) Try this amazing experience to control the camera angle : a total immersion. Use this media player with Tubecast to enjoy Youtube videos 360 degrees (4K supported). It also reads local or remote photos and videos with Side By Side (SBS) Spherical support (change the rendering mode in VR Settings) and also Cinema mode (regular or SBS). Move the camera angle with : - Device sensors (Gyrometer, Accelerometer etc.) - Your fingers - Keyboard - Mouse - XBOX Gamepad Also available on Windows Phone Store as Universal app.
360° video on some mobile devices (iOS or older Android powered phones/tablets) requires the YouTube App for correct playback. When watching on your phone/tablet – move your device in all directions or "spin" the video with your finger to take a better look around. On a desktop, a browser like Chrome or Firefox works best – Safari does *not* support 360 video currently. Use your cursor (or finger if you have a touchscreen) to move your perspective up/down, left/right or tilted directions. To enhance the immersive experience of 360 video even further, a virtual reality headset like Google Cardboard, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream or similar can be made or purchased.

VivaVideo is one of the exceptionally popular video editing apps. In practice, though, it's a very middle-of-the-road video editor. It works especially well for short clips for social media. The app uses a storyboard style of editing where you load clips, edit and trim them as needed, and then move on to the next segment. It includes over 200 video filters and various other effects, text input, and fast and slow motion support. VivaVideo has a free version that comes with a watermark and a time limit for any given video. You can remove these restrictions by buying the pro version.


Have you ever taken the perfect once in a lifetime shot, only to realize that something about the angle or perspective was a little off? It’s the smallest details like this that make the difference between a winning image and one that hits the trash can. SKRWT comes along to save your otherwise perfect images by allowing you to adjust the angle, centering and perspective.
The Android version has 5 types of 8mm film filters and a “Manual” option to adjust the levels of saturation, contrast and brightness, as well as the level of intensity of the effects. While the iOS version has a combination of 7 film filters and 10 different types of lenses, in addition to many other functions, such as a function to adjust focus and exposure.
360 content is slowly growing. Both Facebook and YouTube support this format even though cameras for it are not common. They’re also very expensive so you’re unlikely to see a huge boom in 360 content any time soon. That said, 360 content, 3D content, and Virtual Reality content are being pushed hard by giants like Facebook and Microsoft. Facebook has its Oculus headset, and Microsoft has the Hololens. With the Creators Update, Microsoft added expanded the capabilities of the Movies & TV app and added support for 360 content. You can now use the app to watch 360 videos in Windows 10. Here’s how.

The use of the term "virtual reality" to describe 360-degree video has been disputed, as VR typically refers to interactive experiences wherein the viewer's motions can be tracked to allow real-time interactions within a virtual environment, with orientation and position tracking. In 360-degree video, the locations of viewers are fixed, viewers are limited to the angles captured by the cameras, and cannot interact with the environment. The non-dynamic nature of video also means that rendering techniques cannot be used to reduce the risk of motion sickness.[21][22]
There are more video editing software applications than we can fit into this roundup of the best options, which includes only software rated three stars and higher. The best known among them is probably Vegas Movie Studio, which was recently acquired by Magix from Sony. Sony's product used a very cluttered interface that more resembled high-end professional video editing software from the early days of the craft. Magix has made some progress in simplifying it and bringing it up to par with the competition, but more work is needed for it to be included here.

It is an application with which you can create video collages and combine several into one. It allows you to include up to 4 videos in a single collage , it has 6 different sizes of frame symmetry, 72 background patterns, 7 filters for video and a very creative function with which you can rotate to the angle you want each of the videos in the collage . The only downside of this application, is that there is no version available for Android.
KineMaster is one of the most powerful video editor apps available. You can do the basics like most of these other video editors can. However, this one includes multiple video, image and effect layers. Additionally, there are audio filters, chroma key (for your green screen fans out there), various video effects, transitions, and more. It's not as powerful as a full desktop editor. However, this gets much closer than most other competitors. We would recommend this for actual video production (at least for stuff like YouTube). You can use it for free in trial mode for a while. However, you'll need the $4.99 per month subscription to get everything forever.
360-degree videos are typically viewed via personal computers, mobile devices such as smartphones, or dedicated head-mounted displays. Users can pan around the video by clicking and dragging. On smartphones, internal sensors such as the gyroscope can also be used to pan the video based on the orientation of the device. Taking advantage of this behavior, stereoscope-style enclosures for smartphones (such as Google Cardboard viewers and the Samsung Gear VR) can be used to view 360-degree videos in an immersive format similar to virtual reality. The phone display is viewed through lenses contained within the enclosure, as opposed to virtual reality headsets that contain their own dedicated displays.[13][14][15]

Another program, VSDC Video Editor Pro, simply has too outdated an interface, making common tasks difficult. Longtime pro video editors will note the absence of Avid Media Composer, which is simply too unwieldy for PCMag's primarily consumer audience. There are a couple of more interesting applications—NCH VideoPad and AVS Video Editor among them—that we simply haven't tested yet.

We still live in the days of talkies, so you want to be able to edit the audio in your digital moves as well as the images. Most of the products included here offer canned background music, and many, such as Pinnacle Studio, can even tailor the soundtrack to the exact length of your movie. All of these programs can separate audio and video tracks, and most can clean up background noise and add environmental audio effects such as concert hall reverb. A couple of the products have an auto-ducking feature, which lowers background music during dialog—a definite pro-level plus.
