How many of us are fans of video making, but we always have to fight against paid software?
Cool. If you love editing videos and don’t want to pay the licensing fees, you could try out FlexClip, an interesting video editing tool that will allow you to do everything you need, with just a few clicks. In this article, I will focus on explaining how to start a small project with FlexClip to edit video.
How to edit a simple video with FlexClip?
The first step in any video project is to import a video, and it is very easy to make in FlexClip Video Editor. All you need to do is click on the “+” button, so you can add videos, images and other elements that will make up the final product. If you work with only a few files, this will not be a problem. But if you create something more complicated, it is better to add them all at once and sort the resulting mess using the timeline.
Trim your video
With a click on the vertical scissors icon, you can freely cut the video and divide it into several pieces, which can be managed individually. At the same time, Horizontal scissor icons will allow you to trim the video by simply dragging and dropping.
Add the text, logo, and watermark
Selecting the “Text tab”, you can add titles and artistic elements. For each of them, it is possible to define the structure (also in terms of colors, position, dimensions) as well as establish how they should enter the scene. What’s more, it is also available to upload logo and watermark for business use.
Mix the audio
And then you can add the audio of the background music to the video. It is easy to cut the audio track based on the length of the video by dragging sliders. To play the music repeatedly, you can just click the “Loop Playback” button. Besides, it is also possible to record the voice-over directly into the FlexClip using a compatible device. Although at the moment, I do not have such devices, so I could not verify this aspect of FlexClip. For those of you who make educational videos or other similar content, this will be a big help.
With a click on the small gear icon of the panel, you can act on the different aspect ratio, including 16: 9, 1: 1, and 9:16. At the end of the work, it is possible to check the video by clicking on the “preview” icon in the top right corner. When your video is ready, all you have to do is export it by clicking on the orange “Export video” button, at the bottom right. You will find that FlexClip offers users three options to export video for free, such as 480p, 720p, and even 1080p.
As I mentioned above, FlexClip has an extremely simple and user-friendly interface so that editing video will be a piece of cake. Even if you are not an expert in this field, I believe that you will be able to get a great result in minutes.
