How to edit a YouTube video with Movavi Video Editor Plus

Anyone can make a video and post it to YouTube. However, just being on YouTube doesn’t make that video worth watching. Unedited video clips, bad music and poor looking graphics are just a few problems you’ll find on the platform. The right tools, however, can help you avoid these common pitfalls. Today, we’ll walk you through the five simple steps to making a video for YouTube with Movavi Video Editor Plus — even if you have no experience.

Step 1: Import Media into Movavi

You’ll need to bring all of your media to one place, so you can manipulate it for your video. This means importing all of your music, pictures, videos and any other assets you will be using to assemble your video. With Movavi Video Editor Plus, you can use it all; Movavi has the flexibility to support most major formats and codecs, including H.265 for Windows 10.

Step 2: Trim and Edit

The most important part of editing is choosing and organizing your clips. You’ll need to find the best part of each video clip so you’re only showing what you want the viewer to see. Trim away the unwanted parts so that your video tells the best story.  With over 100 different transitions available, Movavi Video Editor Plus gives you an abundance of tools to get your story from beginning to end. Moreover, the program’s timeline interface makes getting your cut together fast.

Step 3: Add Music

The whole feel of your video will change drastically based on the music you use. Make sure the music fits the mood you desire. It should match the content without being distracting. Finding music can be difficult too. Movavi has a built in music library ready for you to access and it’s all sharable — ready to be used for anything, anywhere.

Step 4: Create Titles and Graphics

This is an easy step to overlook, but good titles and graphics will take a video from average to amazing. Plus, effective titles and graphics will greatly improve your overall communication. Movavi Video Editor Plus includes premade animated titles that are easy to apply and customize. If you’re looking for even more options, you can use the Movavi Effects Store to expand your library.

Step 5: Render Video

This last step is when you get to let the world see your work. Rendering your video will take all of the parts you assembled during the edit and make them into one video clip, ready for sharing. If you don’t upload the video, no one will see it. With Movavi Video Editor Plus, you can render in one step directly to YouTube. Instead of having to render then upload, Video Editor Plus will do it for you — all in one step.

There you have it!

With these five simple steps you’ll be on your way to more views, subscribers, likes and comments. Import your media, edit your project down to the best shots. Then add music to set the mood and titles and graphics to improve your communication. And don’t forget to publish your video for the world to see.
