I’ve provided 2 discussions below that need to be responded. This week’s discussion is the following:’Use a search engine to search for video-editing software. Research at least three video-editing software programs. Compare the features and cost for each. Does each software program have features for creating videos optimized for the web?’
I have searched Shotcut, Davinci Resolve 16 and Final cut pro video-editing software which can be used to edit the videos for a website. I have studied their features, cost, and capabilities which helps to better understand which video-editing software is best to edit videos.
Shotcut is a free and open source cross-platform video editing software which supports hundreds of audio and video formats and codecs. It provides native editing, high resolutions, frame rates within a project, supports resolution up to 4k and captures from HDMI, SDI, webcam, and Jack. It also offers 3-way color wheels for color grading and correction.
Davinci Resolve 16
Davinci Resolve 16 video-editing software offers 8k editing, visual effects, color correction and audio post-production in one software. This software supports all operating systems and it offers features similar to Adobe Premier Pro. This software includes the dual timeline, source tape, dedicated trim interface, intelligent edit modes, fast review, quick export, and portable editing.
Final cut pro
Final cut pro video editing software offers 360-degree video editing, advanced color grading, HDR support, and built-in controls to create, edit and deliver closed captions. It also offers time code window, Multicam and video noise reduction. Final cut pro software supports Apple MacOS operating systems only, so this software cannot be used on other operating systems.
The best video editing software which I found is Davinci Resolve 16 which offers a free version and fulfill all needs of a web designer for editing videos. As it includes features similar to Adobe premier pro which costs high, free version of Davinci Resolve can do the same thing. Davinci Resolve software is a cross-platform tool and supports multiple audio and video formats which can edit any type of video for the website.
Discussion2-)Finding the best free video editing software should be the most important part of any ecommerce entrepreneur’s success for making video. After reading about three different types of video editing software following are the discussions of them.
Lightworks: It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. It is one of the best free video editing software. It has great features. The free versions almost cover everything such as high precision video trimming, multi-cam support, a wide range of video format support and export to 720p for Youtube. The pro version costs 25$ per month that includes 4k video support for Youtube and Vimeo. It has many video tutorials and it is a very powerful video editor with many advanced features.
Final Cut Pro X: It is the best video editor for Mac. It is best for professionals and Enthusiasts. The key feature of the software is intelligent color balancing and Multi-cam editing. It has the option for 30 days free trail. But the main disadvantage is that it is quite costly to buy after the free trial. The price starts from 189.99$ to 299.99$. The great advantage is if someone uploads the whole project in Frame.io for sharing with his clients, the video edits automatically version stack and can be placed for a review link. Someone can get the feedback while instant from client’s review. Some can upload it anywhere they want to see it like Facebook or any other social media. It has a great speed for uploading the video. It can automatically pull-down source assets or auto generated proxies and drop them right into someone’s edit.
Corel VideoStudio Ultimate 2019: It is the best video editing software for beginners. It has a well-designed interface that helps the beginner to understand the editing work easily. The features include multi-cam editing, 4k video support, 360 degrees VR video support, music library and loads of effects etc. It is the best platform for Windows and the key features includes real-time effects and color correction, morph and seamless transition, video and screen recorder, tiny planet and rabbit hole effects etc.
Comparing with the other two video editing software I would prefer coral VideoStudio Ultimate 2019 though it is a bit expensive. The reasons are listed below.
- It is perfect for all skill levels as an unskilled person can learn creating impressive videos right from the start.
- It has nearly 1500+ filters and effects with multi-camera editing option.
- It supports popular formats such as 4k and 360 videos for virtually enjoying great looking movies in any format.
- The use of the software is quite flexible.
