WeVideo Editor

WeVideo is one of the best video editing programs available, especially considering its ease of use and ability to be used on any device (wevideo.com on a computer and the app on mobile devices).  In fact, it has won the best video editing app on Android several times and is the first video editing platform to be certified by Google Classroom.

The key to WeVideo is its simplicity, ease of use, a large library of copyright-safe media (pictures, video clips, music, sounds, text, graphics, etc.), selection of pre-built video templates (that can be quickly modified or edited for quick video creation) or build it yourself from scratch.  And it even includes the ability to create and live stream videos and podcasts online.

WeVideo is all cloud-based which means you don’t have to download or install anything to use it (although the app is recommended for mobile devices) and as soon as you click the button to process a video, you can log off and not have to wait for it to finish or post online to site such as YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, and more.

Check out this webinar below for a deep dive into the WeVideo platform.

We at RETI have always been big fans of WeVideo as it has always been one of the best all-around video editors around, but with its recent upgrade, it now boasts an additional easy to use template-driven video builder that in our opinion now makes it the best video editor on the market as you get the power & versatility of its standard timeline editor and the ease and speed of the new template editor. In this webinar, Craig will provide a behind-the-scenes tour of WeVideo.

Cons:
- While the editor does include many key features, it does lack some features that are found in more robust (but also more expensive and harder to use) programs like Adobe Premier
- It can be a bit hard to find items in your export library (video files you've already created) once you've used the program for a while as the ability to search or organize things well.
- $40/mo for the pro package that includes the full library of media, maybe a bit high for some users that might have success with less expensive or even free video editing software or apps.
