Wave goodbye to the days of inaccessible, high-priced video editing tools — they're long gone. For context, there are now more than 1 billion smartphones in the world, and YouTube video views surpassed 1 trillion in 2011. The YouTube editor is rudimentary, even when compared with simple video editing programs like Movie Maker and iMovie. Many people don't even realize YouTube has built-in editing capabilities — after all, the editor is not easily found on the site. If you want to remove anything from the middle of the video, you'll have to drag the same video into the timeline twice, then trim each down. Usually we don't use tripods when shooting smartphone video, which means filming can get pretty shaky.
Before anything else, check the box in the bottom-right corner of the window that reads "Preview effects side-by-side with original video." Then adjust the "Stabilize video" bar to remove some of the shake.
Before using the stabilization bar, or any other, it is usually a good idea to try the "I'm feeling lucky" option.
Or select some of the sillier ones, such as Heart and Star, for ironic or comedic purposes — if that's your goal. If you do find an appropriate track, you may choose to either completely replace the audio from your video or engineer a mix between the song and the video's audio. Finally, should you choose to use audio, YouTube will automatically add advertisements to the associated video. The YouTube editor is great for compiling footage and making minor improvements to the aesthetics of a video. If you've got great tips about how to get the most out of the YouTube editor, let us know in the comments section.

Let me know what other problems you are facing when editing videos and I may write a tutorial on it. Before You Join the YouTube Club, Get a Program That Doesn't Crash, It's Not Expensive and It's Easy To use. When you watch great GoPro videos and edits you don’t often see shots that last more than 10 seconds. When you edit all the shots, a nice GoPro edit will come together a lot easier. All those short shots you compiled will tell a rich story of the scene because the brain only needs a few seconds of each cut to paint a picture. Alberta ClipperGood idea, I made mine out of flat carbon fibre, much lighter, than, Aluminum, 50% infact!
We save you time by sorting through the hundreds of tutorials out there and gathering only the best ones. In this article I'll share with you how to easily edit GoPro HD videos without having to convert the MP4 clips beforehand using Magix Movie Edit Pro - my favorite GoPro editing program - you get pro results with ease of use. I edit my outdoor videos with Magix coz it's easy to use, has an intuitive interface and works well even on old laptops. It handles GoPro HD MP4 files, MTS (AVCHD) format, MOV clips and AVI files without needing to convert them - that saves time which you can spend on editing rather than figuring out which software to use to convert your files. You always have to keep in mind that your works starts when you press the record button on your camera.
A bird sees the scene from above so fly your camera above the subject or take aerial shots if you can (climb a tree and take some shots from there).
Of course, having a head mounted camera adds an urgency to the video and gives a realistic touch of the action being shot. When you can precisely identify the sound spikes, place the scenes slightly before the audio spikes.
After you're done editing, it's time to export your video and save it as a video file to your computer. If you run Magix on a powerful computer - if you're a gamer you may have a strong machine - you can export the video to an MP4 file.
If your computer is more than 3 years old and has lots of programs installed, you may want to close all other applications when you're editing and exporting videos.
Keep the project folder on a hard disk partition where there's enough free space available. If you convert it to MP4 before uploading, YouTube won't compress them that hard as they're already compressed.
After you download and install Leawo, click the Add button in the lower left of the window and browse for the AVI file you want to convert.
Choose an output destination folder and click the big green arrow button in the lower right of the window to start converting the video. Tip: This process takes up resources as well so it's better to keep your computer in a cool place if you don't have a cooler. Would you like me to write an in depth post or do a video screen capture with all the editing tricks in Magix Edit Pro Plus? Leave a comment and we'll have a constructive conversation that will lead to better solutions for all us adventure seekers and film makers out there. GoPro is the camera, but many people who buy it are having trouble importing the files into their video editor. The suggestions for copyright free music are very useful - the few videos I've made so far have been backed by music I ripped from CDs which meant the last one got rejected from facebook. I use Cyberlink Powerdirector - it works well for me and uploads MP4s, .MOVS for my DSLR and any other format I've tried while exporting directly to AVI, youtube or facebook.
Powerdiriector contains a bucketload of really cheesy gimmicks but does have an indispensible vibration reduction tool - probably not as good as your steadicam bt it works well enough for me. Usually when Magix meets a new kind of footage it asks you for an automatic online codec download from their servers.
If you use their application, the information travels through a longer loop until it reaches YouTube so there's no point in doing that. I have recently bought myself a GoPro HD and have started shooting some skiing videos and time lapses. However, If I do lots of cuts and add color correction - it only previews smoothly for about 10 seconds than it starts to be choppy. More RAM and a dedicated video card (with lots of memory of its own if possible) + a laptop cooler would definitely help.
Usually it's a mixture of overheating, too many applications running and weak computer altogether.
I did some research and it seems I can upgrade the RAM very easily, but unfortunately upgrading from GPU to dedicated graphics card doesn't seem possible. The new GO PRO Hero2 is awesome and I bought it to do SLO MO on my videos and does this software allow you to slo it down and then speed it up for these killer sequence videos?


The slo mo is even smoother with the new 120 fps shooting in R1 mode (available in HD Hero 2). However, if you want super slow motion (like it was shot at 500-700 fps), you need to edit with Adobe Premiere or Sony Vegas or Final Cut Pro (for Mac) and install a plug-in named Twixtor.
This basically creates extra frames and you get that slow motion which looks almost like the image freezes. Magix is limited to the actual frame rate of your original footage when it comes to slow motion. So if you shoot in 120 fps, I'd say don't go lower than 20 (15 the most) fps when you slow it down. In terms of 'moving' the camera I meant that I shot the footage in R2 and to simulate faster motion I moved the camera faster while recording.
Yup this happens a lot (the video being played poorly within the editing software) even with Adobe Premiere and other products. I guess it's because the software has to load a ton of features and playing the video is just another burden.
I can only play the files smoothly in Magix if the videos are AVI in low resolutions (lower than 720 p).
As I said: I shot lots of videos in R1 which is not HD but then converted with Leawo to 720p and the image didn't pixelate at all.
Yup Premiere is ultra proficient but takes a while to learn and needs a powerful computer to run on.
I won't have much options for offloading (possibly to a netbook) so space is probably a concern also. So if you get the HD Hero 2 you might as well get a 32 GB SDHC memory card from GoPro - this way you know for sure it performs well.
I'm saying this coz there are cards that are slower - they cannot actually record all the info that's being sent from the camera to them. So if you don't shoot super fast action, then I'd go with R2 - coz it outputs the "lightest" HD file format.
Now, if I were a diver, I'd consider buying one - check out Eye of Mine (they manufacture it).
I know Powerdirector handles MP4 files as well but haven't really worked with it so I can't tell if it's better than Magix from a beginner's point of view. As long as you export with the right settings (resolution and aspect ratio) it should't be a problem to work in a project file that has different settings. Well, it's quite easy if you have a powerful computer with tons of RAM, and enough memory on the graphics card. Then you can export directly in MP4 with Magix - so the second part of the tutorial becomes irrelevant.
Anyway, one can export in MP4 but the result may a little pixelated if the hardware resources are not enough. I started playing with Vegas but the quality of the final Video was never as good as the original. What I do is this: Hold down the Ctrl key and press the Up Arrow key until the footage track is zoomed-in enough so you can see each frame as a distinct footage segment (bordered by two vertical lines).
I think you would have to play with "distort" effects in your video editor (whatever that may be). Last summer I strapped on 3 GoPro cams and recorded POV for my Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon. The idea is simple: drag files onto your timeline, make the cuts, add the music on a lower track and export your movie. I built my computer and am running windows and want to know does Magix edit pro plus work well also for the go pro hero 3 black? I'm running MAGIX Edit Pro MX Plus (capable to export MP4 videos with H.264 codec directly), but I'm not being able to achieve the desired results.
I've noticed that previous versions (maybe yours as well) would export a grainy result in MP4 - that's why I used to export in AVI (got a sharp result) and then I compressed it to MP4 with Leawo.
Get the free trial of the latest version and give it a spin - I like the way it exports MP4 now.
Video editor Pro for Mac is an all-in-one video and photo editing and DVD burning tool for Mac.
Besides, with this best video editing software for Mac, you can export videos to a wide range of popular video formats and portable devices for sharing and enjoyment, and you can also directly upload your videos to YouTube for sharing with family and friends. Highlight the video you want to edit and click the Trim, Crop, Rotate and Voiceover button  to start editing the video or click the gear under the video and choose the function you like. If you want to get several video parts, just click the trim button to add another mark and drag the slider to select the part you like. Many free filter and text effects are provided for you to bring your videos to the next level instantly.
Filter: Choose from 34 professional filter effects and double click the one you like to apply to you video. Video: You can adjust the video brightness, contrast, saturation, and deinterface to achieve the best video effect. This video editor pro for Mac supports dozens of devices and formats, and you can also share your edited movies to YouTube and burn them to DVD. There are several video editing software programs which come with pre-built graphic and text generators.
Anyone with a smartphone and a free YouTube account can create a video that could reach millions. But while it is relatively simple to figure out, particularly for anyone with previous editing experience, there are some potential pitfalls. Or click on "Video Manager," which will make the "Video Editor" tab appear directly under the search bar at the top of the page.
Linear video editors like YouTube's are based around an intuitive and easy-to-use timeline. Unlike most video editing programs, YouTube does not let you split and cut parts out from the middle of the video.
While you're adjusting the slider on the timeline to trim a video, the video constantly reloads on the display. Simply drag multiple clips onto the timeline and arrange them in whichever order you fancy. You can find these beneath the "Video Manager" tab, by clicking on the icon that resembles a bow tie. To do this, click on the text tab, marked with a lowercase "a" and located next to the transition tab. Usually, I fix the bugs by refreshing the page or taking the video or song out of the timeline, then replacing it.
If a song is longer than your video, the song will simply end awkwardly at the point where the video ends. And using a song from YouTube's library negates your ability to monetize a video if it goes viral. Powered by its own proprietary technology, Mashable is the go-to source for tech, digital culture and entertainment content for its dedicated and influential audience around the globe. Before you buy your top original software, watch some tutorials so you know it's right for you. In YouTube you can make those areas clickable so you can promote your other videos as well.
With Magix, you simply adjust the playback speed factor and you either slow down or speed up your videos - it's very easy to do. If you want, you can make the whole image black and white and keep just one color in normal saturation. Helpful if you sell stuff online through your own shop or on other platforms like Ebay or Amazon. Synch the footage across all cameras and edit like a live broadcaster - you have a main monitor and the source cameras, then you edit by simply clicking on the cam that has the right angle at the right time. But then you end up with a large file - that's why you should compress it with Leawo before uploading it to YouTube. A basic fade and some dissolves here and there will do but stick to simple cuts for the most part. Scientists and neurologists have proven that we don’t just retain visual info quickly, we retain it fairly well too. During your next trip to the skate park, instead of turning on the camera and leaving it running, try this: A shot of the crowd of spectators watching, and CUT. Think of it like this, if you have to make a one minute video, what do you think will be more satisfying to watch—a single 60-second scene or a 60-second edit with 10 cuts? I've been using it since 2010 and I still use it for all my video editing projects in 2016.
If  you shoot thinking about how you're gonna edit then you'll be taking quite a lot of work load off the editing process. All these add to the artistry of the video - plus, viewers are used to watch this kind of steady footage from TV shows, music videos and movies. Also, the dolly zoom (vertigo effect) is another cool trick you can do to add drama to your clips. He has an interesting collection of audio tracks that are available for download and free to use for your videos as long as you give him credit.


Most of them are cool people who will accept you taking their tracks for your YouTube videos.
This grants high quality and low file size so it'll be faster for you to upload the video online. Use the same folder where the rest of the media files are stored (original footage and audio files). So when you want to ad a time lapse scene in the clip, simply import your previously processed scene and trim it accordingly. All video editors create temporary files that enables them to do their work properly - don't sacrifice that. If your video editor doesn't export in MP4, which is perfect for internet upload, then use a video converter. What I mean is you may have a sharp looking video on your hard drive but notice it gets pixelated after you upload it to YouTube.
I used to take it out in the balcony (in the shade) or in the bathroom (down on the tiles) to avoid overheating - this was before I got my laptop cooler. Compress your video with Leawo in MP4 or export your video in MP4 with Magix if you have a good computer. It looks as though you are using a single core (SLOW) processor which is kind of weak itself (1.6ghz). I have yet to purchase my gopro, but I'm a diver and heading to Belize and Roatan this year and getting ready for some good video. I've seen some suggest r3 for underwater (wider angle) but my overall video will be a compilation of above water, below water etc. LOL My friend will be on this trip and I want to get some good video and won't have time on trip to test what I've got.
So for super slow mo use R1 (even if the resolution is not HD) and for the rest use either R2 or R3.
The action and the style of shooting and editing is much more important than actually having 1080p footage.
When that's the case, the camera either stops or your clips will be recorded with breaks and jumps. And if super slo mo is not your thing but you still wanna slow down the footage a little without making it choppy, then shoot in R3, for the same reason - it's the "lightest" HD format at a higher fps.
I only shoot occasionally under water so I don't care that much about the extra sharpness I could get with this flat lens housing. I'm just about to get stuck into learning how to edit videos so I can produce travel videos in the near future.
Then when I export I am being asked about resolution and other settings and that's the part that matters.
Work with whatever presets it has and then export using your desired resolution and aspect ratio.
Im having a huge problem with my HD Hero 2 videos, I just started a bodybuilding vlog and shoot all my vids with this camera, i edit them on Premiere CS5.5, they export in perfect 1080 HD, I match all the settings with the way I shot the video, but when I upload to youtube they look horrible.
So after you upload it, YouTube does an extreme compression in order to play it online - that's when they screw up the quality of your vid. Even after you graduate from "beginner status", you'll still enjoy it for editing your GoPro clips and more. They say it's good for beginners but I can't tell you how good it is - I haven't bought it. I guess you need to fine tune the settings of the project file and then the export settings (resolution, fps, bit-rate and such). I used 3 GoPros to film my Escape from Alcatrtaz Triathlon and realized that I ended up with 8hours of videos and needed to quickly cut it up before edit. What settings would you recomend in order to export MP4 720p HD H.264 videos for youtube (directly from MAGIX)??
It is ideal Mac video editing software to edit and retouch videos with rich video and photo editing functions. If you need, Mac video editor pro also enables you to burn videos to DVD for better video preservation.
You can also click the icon which seems like a small clock to open the duration setting window and set the trimming begin and end time manually. Select the way you want to share your videos or randomly choose one since you can freely switch the tab in the Share window. If you want to add a clip from your pool of videos into the project, simply drag it onto the timeline. Obviously, you can do this more than twice, depending how much you want to chop up the footage. The best way to trim a video is to pre-decide the exact startpoint and endpoint, rather than trying to eyeball it while dragging the trim bar.
Once that is done, an easy-to-navigate yet often buggy slider will appear on the right side of the screen. I just like Magix coz it lets me import most formats (MP4, MKV, MOV, MTS - AVCHD, M2TS, VOB, etc.), it's easy to use and delivers professional results. Then you combine all those photos and create a video that looks as when you fast forward a film. It makes your video Hollywood style and it also allows you to get a better frame composition for each shot. Capture the sound on an external voice recorder and sync it with your video in post production. The point is that looking at something for a longer period of time doesn’t really help your brain take in any additional information.
Out of all the templates, you can probably count the number of cuts that are more than 10 seconds on one hand.
If you place the scenes exactly on the beats, you'll notice a delay between video and audio in the final video. This happens because YouTube does an extra compression of the initial file you upload, thus screwing the quality. Of course, what you get is not a real HD video since the original footage was shot in 480 p but still you can maintain a sharp image even when you increase the actual resolution of the clip.
Im just sceptical that the upgrade from 2GB to 4GB will give me what I need to run the playbacks smoothly. The first time I took out quite a "blanket" of dust that was basically smothering my computer, thus overheating the system. The footage was smooth as long as I was shooting smoothly, but as soon as I moved the camera faster I then had jumpy playback in Magix. This workflow seems perfect and I like the preview I watch for MAGIX software on their site (like adding slow motion, etc.) I've used Premiere previously and it seems like a resource hog. But you're saying to shoot in that, but then use Leawo to save (avi to mp4) as HD for iPad that will give it the 720 HD widescreen resolution for Youtube? Slow-mo isn't the highest priority, I'd just like to be able to slow down a few scenes just for effect. No matter what i have tried using corel or gopro sw, I can not even come close to the quality end result that is posted everywhere. It enables you to trim, crop, rotate, add stylish titles, apply filter effects, insert transition and motion effects, etc. You can also include any YouTube videos that were uploaded with a "Creative Commons" license. And always keep in mind that you have millions of YouTube fans waiting for you to entertain them; so keep practicing and try to produce something amazing.
So what I'm saying is this: if you're running Magix on a slow computer, export your GoPro HD video to AVI.
I might also add that all of my GoPro HD mp4 files run smoothly in Quick Time and Windows Media Player, just not in Magix! Even when you choose 1080 setting on youtube mine does not look anywhere near like the way i filmed it. Other than the first two (Crossfade and Crossblur), which are relatively subtle, each of the other transitions will make your video look amateur. Simply delete the "ABC" from the text box and you'll have a two-second black screen transition.
Even with the option to sort by genre or artist, the list of songs can be tricky and frustrating to navigate. Earlier versions of Magix had issues like that but the latest versions (17 or more) handles this better - now you can actually place the scenes right on the beats and the rendering will be correct. This doesn't happen with all file types but I've seen it happen with my GoPro clips that were uploaded as AVI.
I waited, and when it was FINALLY dont uploading, it said there was an error and couldn't upload. The editor does not have this preset so trying to figure out what would be the best resolution to use in this case. And I might add my work will be done on a lap top (I dont even know how to find the strength of it).
