Tip #528: A Look at YouTube’s NLE
This article, written by Jourdan Aldredge, first appeared in PremiumBeat.com. This is an excerpt.
In the short but storied history of digital video editing platforms, we’ve seen just a few familiar names reign king — Apple Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, and more recently, DaVinci Resolve. However, while the big giants may still dominate the marketplace, it hasn’t stopped many other third parties and platforms from launching editing applications of their own.
Some are doing it to capture the market. While others — like YouTube — are simply trying to provide a more full, robust service to their current offerings. If you’ve uploaded a video to YouTube in the past year or so, you may have noticed that the social video-sharing platform is working hard to add tons of different functionality, controls, and analytics as its creator space continues to grow.
To get started, all you need to do is upload a video — or choose one you’ve already uploaded — and find the “Editor” tab in the studio.
Overall, at this stage the YouTube Video Editor is best for first time vloggers, or those needing to quickly edit tons of videos or long-form streams. However, I wouldn’t rule out YouTube simply using this as a first step, as they may build out the app much more in the future.
