I want to create YouTube videos, but don't know how to edit video. What software would be best for me to use- as a beginner- but to be able to use as I become more proficient?
Hello and good day!
The good news is that we are living in great times to produce our own videos. When I first started we needed to spend at least 20k-100k to edit professional-quality video. Now we can produce quality videos with apps that we may already own.
The best software tool I would recommend to start editing is Apple’s iMovie. It is a very powerful tool that is actually easy to use and learn. The video linked below was edited with iMovie on an iPad. iMovie is already included in most of our devices.
Once we learn iMovie and want more advanced features we can move up to Final Cut Pro which is Apple’s Professional editing tool. There are a lot of similarities between these two apps so the transition should be easy.
The good thing about Final Cut Pro is that it is a one time charge, so there is no Monthly fee as with other tools and we get to save a lot of money in the long run.
However, depending on the complexity of your videos, you may not even need to use Final Cut Pro and just stay with iMovie.
I hope this helps. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to let me know. Thank you for your valuable time and have an amazing day! :)
