Of course, none of the extras matter if an app can't do the most basic editing tasks. At this point, however, all of the products included here do a good job of letting you join, trim, and split video clips. They also let you make use of special effects such as animated transitions, picture-in-picture (PiP), chroma-key (the technique that lets you place a subject against any background, often known as green screening), and filters that enhance colors or apply creative effects and distortions. With most of them you can add a multitude of timeline tracks that can accommodate video clips, effects, audio, and text overlays.
CutStory is a video editing app for Instagram stories. It makes it easy to chop a longer video up into the required length for Instagram Stories (15 seconds maximum per clip). This way, you can repurpose longer videos—from your brand’s YouTube library, for example—and create more robust content without having to continually stop and start the camera.
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]
Theta has two mobile 360 editing apps for photos and videos, named Theta+ and Theta+ Video respectively. The Theta+ Video app features clip trimming, filters, and background music. Four types of formats are available, namely mirror ball, little planet, equirectangular, and rectilinear. Most importantly, the app is camera-agnostic and can work almost any 360 camera.
Love FilmoraGo! This app is truly amazing! I usually download apps first and give them a good try before rating them but this right here beats any other editing app. I just made an edit and it turned out perfect. Hope to see this grow further in the near future! Also some frame rate issues could be fixed. Occurs a lot when tiny clips are combined, not allowing it to play right. Overall a great app.

CinemaFX gives your finished videos a new look with its palate of 55 effects. Stackable with up to three effects at a time, effects can be adjusted to create your own unique finished look. Videos can be previewed side-by-side against the original, and finished videos can be exported to your phone in a variety of different formats as well as uploaded directly to YouTube or emailed to friends from within the app.
I've been seeing a lot of attention paid to creating title effects in the applications over the past year. Apple Final Cut Pro X has added 3D title creation, which is pretty spiffy, letting you extrude 2D titles and rotate them on three axes. Corel VideoStudio in its latest version also adds 3D Titling, though not as powerful as Apple's. PowerDirector's Title Designer offers transparency, gradient color, border, blur level, and reflection in titles; Magix has impressive title templates, complete with animations. Premiere Elements offers a nifty title effect in which your video fills the text characters, and Corel recently followed suit in VideoStudio 2019. Look for an application that lets you edit titles in WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) mode, so that you can type, format, and time it right over the video preview.
360-degree videos, also known as immersive videos[1] or spherical videos,[2] are video recordings where a view in every direction is recorded at the same time, shot using an omnidirectional camera or a collection of cameras. During playback on normal flat display the viewer has control of the viewing direction like a panorama. It can also be played on a displays or projectors arranged in a sphere or some part of a sphere.

360 video has offered a new way for filmmakers and video editors to tell their story. Given the difference between the new medium and traditional 2D media, content creators need different tools for editing 360 videos. You might be familiar with regular video editing, but are at a loss for 360 editing, either on your phone or desktop. We’ve compiled a list of mobile 360 video editors and PC software for you to choose from.


Increasingly, new capabilities trickle down from professional-level software to the consumer category. That's a good thing for nonprofessional movie editors, since the more consumer-oriented software tends to make easier procedures that can sometimes be pretty tricky in the pro-level software. Read on for a survey of the latest trends in video editing software along with our top picks in the field.
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.
Mobile introduces some powerful new insight possibilities for optimizing your campaigns. You will be able to capture taps, gestures, swipes, pinches and zooms, letting you know exactly how users are engaging with your ads. You can also track when users exit. If there are high numbers of exits on a particular section, make changes and re-deploy your ad, watching closely for changes. The other thing to monitor is how fast users arrive at the call-to-action. Sometimes removing elements will help users find the call-to-action faster.
The Adblock Browser blocks all incoming ads by default but does allow users a measure of control. You can opt to let in advertising deemed nonintrusive or configure a list of filters based on different dialects. Depending on your browsing habits, that alone may be worth the price of admission. Nobody wanst to be assaulted with garbled foreign text. There are several other options that can help with your privacy as well by letting you disable tracking, anti-ad blocking messages, malware domains, and social media buttons.
So…you’re too cheap to buy a game for even $1, and the developers who spend months and tens of thousands building a game resort to showing you ads to try to recover some of their costs. So now you want to eliminate that option also because hey, you deserve to help yourself without limit to other people’s hard work and ensure you never, ever, ever give them a dime. Thanks for the great list of things – we’ll be changing our games so that if we detect any of these options present and active when you try to help yourself and rip us off, our apps will terminate.
The audio and video experiences are changing constantly with the application of newer technologies. And the latest addition in this regard is of course VR videos. We have so far heard the word audio headset now we have the option of video headset. Yes, you may be or may not be quite familiar with the names like The Oculus VR, Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard headsets. The demand of such headsets is increasing and so is the demand of 360 VR movies and videos.

When it comes to video editing on iPhone, no other app comes even close to the feature set that is packed inside LumaFusion. It is the only outright paid app on this list and it deserve every cent. The app is not only used by YouTubers but even mobile journalists and professional video producers who don’t want to carry heavy camera gear and editing rig where they go.

One of the unique selling points of LumaFusion is its UI. The app looks really clean with no ads or annoying popups to hamper your experience. What I love most about LumaFusion is that it not only allows users to edit videos in landscape mode but also portrait mode. Not only that, you can easily switch between the two modes without any hiccup. This comes helpful as the app  supports a variety of video aspect ratios including landscape, portrait, square, film, and more.


Quik is from a newer generation of video editor apps. It's halfway decent if you need something simple. The way it works is you add up to 50 photos and video clips into the app. The app then analyzes them and spits out a short video from them. Quik contains about two dozen video styles and you can re-order and customize your video before you export it. It’s not nearly as powerful as something like Adobe Premiere Clip or PowerDirector, but not everyone needs something that intense. It's free to download with no in-app purchases.

If you are coming from the print world, you may need to rethink some of the things you learned in design school about "simple, clean" layouts. Interactive ads tend to be visually busier than print ads, but that doesn't diminish their impact. The ad should also feel just as native on the device as the app in which it was built. At the same time, you need to strike a balance between grabbing attention not going over the top.
If you’re looking for free video editing software for Windows and don’t want to download and install any program, you can check my picks about the free online video editor, which listed 10 free video editing tools, some of them are free to use, but you need to pay or invite friends to remove the watermark. Here, I’ll just share some free online video makers with no watermarks.

Improving the result of your videos on Instagram can directly contribute to increase your fan base, get more Likes and ultimately attract more audience. If you limit yourself to publishing your videos as you record them and without using any type of edition, you will never know the true scope they can have. Therefore, we encourage you to start using some of the 6 applications that we are going to recommend and then compare the results with the videos that you already had published on Instagram.
When Instagram enabled the feature to record video , you could not load already recorded videos, so no one could apply any type of editing before publishing them and that obviously did not like the users. But since Instagram allows to upload videos already recorded from the gallery (if we are in Android) or from the reel (if we are on iPhone), the editing options are almost endless and it would be a bit absurd on your part, not take advantage of them.
Recently got interested when some apps I “lived with” started seriously larding up the ads to force their premium versions. The following block ads in both browser and apps, are free, non-root, light on resources, and open source: AdClear and BlockThis work on Android J and newer, DNS66 works on Android L and newer. I don’t think any are in Google Play, so best to google the developer’s site or GitHub for a reliable APK to sideload.
This new app allows business to target potential customers based on their proximity to their location. These businesses can choose how they wish to reward customers that log their visits in the app, such as offers and promotions, events and treasure hunts- changing these as and when they wish. Business can list for free, but also have the opportunity to access features, such as virtual tours, digital brochures and social media links, if they subscribe to the premium version of the app.

When you export your video from your camera, if you are using a 360 video device chances are it is already in one of the popular 360 monoscopic formats: equirectangular, spherical fisheye or dual fisheye. When you play it back on your computer's default video player (example Windows Media Player), your footage does not look right because this is not a 360 video player. Below is likely one of the views you are seeing when you open it in a standard video player:
In addition to replacing the camcorder, your smartphone can also be used as a video editor. There are a variety of different apps available on the market today for editing video. From basic video editors that let you trim out pieces of your video you don’t want, to themed editors that let you change the frame rate and filter of your video to make it look like an old school 8mm film.
