Default What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

Just a quick question...

What do you think is the best (and easiest to use) video editing software to make promotional videos for your sites and for You Tube?

Right now I just downloaded some editing tutorials from Youtube in order to use my standard windows movie maker, you don't always have to get that overpriced stuff if you're not planning on something too elaborate.


Besides if you're going to use other video editing software, you can always go to youtube or the other major video sites like I did for tutorials.

Depends on what you want to do. Windows movie Maker is OK for some editing of live video, but the titling is horrible.

Camtasia is great for screen capture videos, adding text to live video, creating snappy slideshows.

BTW, I'll be talking about this stuff on Willie Crawford's Blog Talk Radio on Monday evening (North America time) Internet Radio, Citizen Broadcasting, Social Media Podcasts - Blog Talk Radio

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

Jeremy,
Not the easiest program (but I wouldn't say the hardest either) is Adobe Premier. I find it much more powerful than Movie Maker (which, I find, limits my ability/creativity greatly). Premier obviously does a lot of stuff I don't need... but I also am not limited by the PROGRAM'S ability (which is the most imporant aspect in any tool like this for me).

The learning curve might be there... but as a good example, I'd say it's no more of a learning curve if one was going from MS Paint to Adobe Photoshop for instance. With video growing at the rate it is... I'd say it's a worthwhile investment of your time to make.

Thanks,
Brian

Camtasia for Screenshot Videos and Slideshow Videos.

Adobe Premier or Sony Vegas for videos made using a camcorder or webcam.

Movie Maker is the video equivalent of MS Paint. Yes you can do some tasks in the program, but it is very limited. Invest money in a good program.

If you don't already have Photoshop for graphics manipulation, then you will want to invest in Adobe Creative Suite that included Premier and Photoshop.

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

Hey Jeremy,

My personal favorite "Video Editing SOftware" is....


Sony Vegas 8.0 or Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum

And listen if you are just getting started with this stuff always remember that even with these very high priced softwares from Major Companies like Sony, TechSmith and so on you can go to their sites and download a 30 FREE TRIAL.

And this way you have 30 days to put your videos into action and get a return so they can pay for themselves!

QUICK TIP::: Make sure before you start any trials that you have everything like your scripts, setup and videos complete because you might think it will take you an hour to put together a video and then it takes you a week which gives you less time. So after the video is recorded and just needs to be edited then get your trial and rock n roll

With Vegas you can add music, another video track (for displaying your domain throughout the video), there are tons of effects and much more. Watch the Free Tutorials because they really help and best of all are "short and detailed"

Good Luck

Agreed.

I should have clarified that. Adobe Premier is overkill for a slideshow or simple screen capture video. However if I do any VIDEO work I always do it in Premier. For one, the HD options are extensive (does Movie Maker even do HD? I dunno). With my Sony HD camcorder this is very cool... especially with the camera hooked up into Premier's live capture using a firewire cable for live, on the spot, high quality recording.

...and for those who say HD isn't needed for online videos, let me just say you're wrong. The quality difference between the standard DV recording and HD method is night and day. Think of the old anology... crap in crap out... so if you start with a low quality recording and compress it for web it will (more often than not) have more noticable flaws than if you go from high quality recording to compression for web.

I also prefer to go letterbox 99% of the time now. It looks more professional (just from a prospect's standpoint) and all monitors and TVs are headed to a completely letterbox format.

Thanks,
Brian

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

Let me put a marketing spin on this. When you are producing the best quality visually speaking. Your product will stand out from the crowd of marketers just throwing videos together. When you have professional transitions and callouts and all these other neat features in good software like the background effect (chromo something)... people will be more inclined to trust your product is good, simply because your video looks professionally done.

This is because it has a higher perceived value.

Crap in and Crap out, goes for sales too. Put in a crap effort for research and development, and you will get crap in sales.

I use Windows Movie Maker almost exclusively. It's just so easy to use, and best of all it is free. I'm not making professional, polished marketing videos however, my videos are more fun (when I make them myself at all!).

You can download the free trial of Camtasia Studio for 30 days and give that a try, I had a go with it, but ended up going back to WMM. It was just easier for me. It does (as mentioned) depend on what you want to do with it.

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

Windows Movie Maker compresses your video files on output so if you are doing live motion video you will end up with crummy looking video because it will be double compressed when you upload it to youtube.

While I am not going to go into detail on youtube optimization strategies here...

It does not matter what editor you use for youtube as long as you can save your master in a DV avi format.

The key is to upload your video to youtube in the least compressed format possible taking into consideration Youtube's file size limitation.

By uploading the the least compressed format possible you will increase your image quality.

I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum but again you can use any editor that will output in a lossless DV avi format.

I think Sony Vegas has the best combination of full-features and fairly quick learning curve. FYI, there are good versions you can get for under 100 bucks, like Vegas 8 Platinum.

As others said, download the free trial first to see if you like it.

I own almost every video editor on the planet I think...LOL but:

I use Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum for almost all editing. Best value (about $90), most features, lowest learning curve, very flexible.

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

I have used Windows Movie Maker and find it is good for simple editing of video for youtube etc. Sony vegas seems to be pretty popular and has good reviews. I am using Pinnacle Studio 11 and although it is ok it seems to have conflicts with my system. When it works it works fine when it doesn't it freezes up my computer.

To put videos on site I use VideoWebWizard from Keith Gilbert. There are many options in the program and it converts your video to FLV. The latest version allows you to host the videos offsite and I am using Amazon S3 so I don't have to worry about my shared hosting bandwith and usage.

The following link shows one of the videos on a site I am hosting. Notice the program does not show the fact that I am using Amazon S3 to host the video.

I've used several, but the easiest to use without instructions was Video Studio 11. I made a video that I sell online for screenprinters on fourcolorprocessvideo.com. I had a Hi8 camera and it imported with no problem and rendered the videos very fast. Timeline was easy to manipulate. I noticed that the movie maker on the Mac doesn't even give you as much control and it cost way more.

CamStudio for screen capture video.

Depending on what you need done, Windows Movie Maker (free) or Camtasia (expensive) are the ones I use. I would say, if you only need to add basic effects like commentary/URL etc then you can get away with WMM. It's fine. If you want screen recording software, go for Camtasia.

Default Re: What's the best Video Editing software for making YouTube Videos?

First I will tell you what it is not:

1. Not Windows Movie Maker.

Yes its easy and a great little free tool but it will always degrade the end quality of your youtube videos. The reason is because it uses compression on output. Then when you upload to YT it will compress the video again. That double compression gives you poor quality. Hmmmm

2. Not Camtasia.


If you know what you are doing then the end result can be better than Windows Movie Maker but the problem is that almost no one knows what they are doing when it comes to correct formatting for best results on youtube so most camtasia videos are terrible on youtube.

So here is my suggestion:

The best editor for youtube is....

Actually it has nothing to do with what editor you choose.

To get the best results on youtube it is all about the quality of the master video file you upload and the dimensions of that master video file.

Personally I use Sony Vegas.

I challenge anyone to a dual who thinks they can get better youtube video quality than me ;-)

If you don't have a student inhouse, you can buy just the Sony Vegas Pro 8 OEM software at www.bhvideo.com for $129 (but no Architect or box and only PDF manual).

Sony vegas movie studio is only $80 and it has more features than most need.... or their is the Platinum version for around $100. Both have free fully functional 30 day trial downloads available.

The great thing is that all you have to do is search youtube for "sony vegas tutorial" and you will have all the instruction you need to get rolling.

Smoke signals works great.

But if there's a high wind, I prefer keeping it simple - Windows Movie Maker. There's a very helpful forum for it over at Movie Maker Forums .

I also love using Sony products. I've also bought stuff off Josh - I'd listen to him.

I also came across a really cool guy called Bill Myers and bought his excellent video production series. He has a really cheap yearly subscription ($10 I think) and he really puts a lot of effort into it. Heaps of really cool short tips for making movies. He will give you the exact settings for great quality clips for you tube and camtasia. I save them as save options so the clips come out very clear and clean. He goes under the you tube name of GuerillaBill. Heaps of great clips for video creation and editing and saving there for free. Once you start watching him you'll just want to keep watching.

Another cool site I've found for taking quick screen movies is www.screenr.com . You arrive at the site, press a big button to start recording, when finished it sends you a copy, saves a copy on the server and also posts it to you tube for you!

Making videos is fun.

As others have said, it depends what kind of videos you're going to make. For screencapture and Powerpoint, Camtasia is far and away the best IMHO.

For live action videos I use Serif MoviePlus HD Video Editing Software – MoviePlus X5 from Serif (not an affiliate link). You can upload to YouTube directly from the software - which is handy!

You can turn your E-book or PLR content into a profit-pulling video E-Course. Here's how...

I've never found the need for anything other than Movie Maker.

There's a reason for this though. My work is static. I develop logo's. Animation would take away from the artwork which should shine statically.

It really depends on what you're trying to achieve.

I don't need the bells and whistles other video editing software provides.

For the price and quality I don't think you can beat Sony Vegas.
I think you get a lot for under $100. Good thing it was an internet
marketer who made this software you'd be paying $997 for it.

True!

I had a rep (or so it seemed) oddly contact me to try out a trial of Sony Vegas recently. I'm happy with what I have but on second thoughts it's always healthy to step out the comfort zone!

The thread title is loaded. There is no best software for making YouTube videos.

There are best choices for software for the type of video you are making. There are best choices for easy use. There are best choices for best output quality.

YouTube cares not one bit what software you use. It's irrelevant.

Some YouTube videos are raw and unedited - no software involved, straight from the camera.

Some YouTube videos were edited in Hollywood studios using the most whiz-bang software available.

It ALL depends on what type of video you are doing and personal workflow preference. Get some free trials, check them out and decide what you like, you will find personal preferences.

I use Camtasia for everything. I LOVE this program. The 30 day trial is good but I went ahead and purchased it. The screen recording is great! Vital for internet marketing demo videos.

I would say:

Beginner:

Windows Movie Maker

Intermediate:

Camtasia

Advanced:

Sony Vegas or Adobe Premiere

Obviously with the advanced options you can do more but it depends on what you need them for.

For a simple YouTube slideshow or video stick with Windows Movie Maker.

I use Sony Vegas for all my Youtube clips. It's very easy for use, it's fast and you have everything you need with that software.

So, my vote for goes for Vegas.

I have used Camtasia. It is probably the best. You will get a 30 day free trial if you download and install the software.
