Your success with video making is mostly about what you know ... and not what you use as your video editor!


How Do You Make a Great Video?

How to make a great video!Making a great video is far more than just using the "best video editing software"...

Just as... building a fine house takes a lot more than just using the "best" hammer! Your success with video making is mostly about what you know  about video production and editing... And not what you use  as your video editor.

Knowing the craft of video editing is essential to make your videos enjoyable for everyone to watch. Videos that are just a collection of disconnected ideas are meaningless to an audience... Just remember that...

  • Software is just a tool...
  • It is you that make the video!

That is why the best software is which ever one you  find easiest for you to learn and work with.

My advice to you is...try several  different programs when looking for "the best video editing software". There are many free editing programs that are very good. Also, most of the video editing programs that are not free will give you a free trial period to evaluate them - you can then see if they're a program you would want to buy and use or not.
