Hi, my name is Gijs Bodenstaff, 1 of the
Online Video Professionals. In this video I will show you how you can easily
edit your own video with YouTube editing software. First, we are going to
login to YouTube. Next, you click on the “Icon” in the top right. And you go to
“Creator Studio”. Next, you go to: “Create”. And you see 2 things here, the
Audio library, which contains among others free
music and free sound effects. You can use those for your video. But of course we
are first going to the Video Editor. Well there are several options that you
can choose from. First, you can of course edit the video that you have already uploaded
in your time frame. But there are a number of other interesting options, such as
for example “Creative Commons” videos, those are videos that are royalty free. So you can
just use those. So let’s say you want to use those, then you simply drag them here and
voilà, you can immediately start using this video. Furthermore there are a number of
other options, such as for example importing a photo or a logo. Well that is simply a matter of
dragging and it’s in. And then you have two bars here, and those can be used to
simply stretch the video, or extend it,
well yeah, move it. Then you have the option music, you can search by genre,
you have Hip Hop, you have Disco. Well you can simply drag this and play them
over your video. Furthermore there is an option those are, yes, effects. Let’s say you
want to add a star, well you just add it in. Then I drag it through to the effect.
And you see a nice star appears. Then you have the option of adding a
text. So if you enable this, then you see on the left side your original
video and on the other side you see how it will look if you add effects.
So it’s a nice option. You can still add audio, you can then lower the volume or increase
it, the bass, etc. Now as soon as you are happy, er, with your video,
click on Create Video. Then you see, it will
take a while until it is processed. And a golden rule is actually when you create a video
of about 5 minutes then it will take on average 10 minutes until your YouTube has
edited your new video. And as soon as it has been edited, it will of course be added to
your Videos. That is of course not yet the case. You also don’t see it
being edited yet. But then you can do the normal optimization as
usual. So very easily, you go to “Create”.
You go to Video Editor. And then there are a number of useful options.
Let’s say you add this, then you can, with the button on the right, zoom in.
Then you see all ‘separate’ fragments. I personally really like this option when
editing. Furthermore there are a number of other options. Yes you can set the brightness,
contrasts, the slow motion is also a nice option, you can slow down the speed a little.
Then there are a number of filters, you can for example apply black and white, text,
audio we already talked about that. So these are pretty much the basic features of YouTube
editing, this is a free program. If you want to make more professional edits, then I could
recommend you a few different options.
Er, there are of course free and paid versions, I myself use a Mac. And I use ScreenFlow,
but there is of course also iMovie which is er simply free.
For Windows there are various programs. But if you just want to edit the basics then
YouTube Editing is fine. I personally work with ScreenFlow for Mac.
I like the program, I will make another video about that. So if
you now go to the top right and click on the “i”, you will be redirected to
a short introduction video about editing using ScreenFlow. If you still have a
question after watching this YouTube video, just ask it below. Then I will answer
it for you. Is the video useful to you? Please give us a “Like” and “Subscribe” to
