Video Production Software

This unit talks about the different Video Production Soft wares which can be used explaining each.


The fundamentals of ¬†video editing software haven’t changed much over the past few years: You want a program that lets you import video, stills, and sound to your PC from whatever camera or source you have, easily join and trim what you shot, and maybe add some transitions and cool effects. Also unchanged is the need for fast, crash-free performance on non-professional hardware. Finally, you want the software to be able to deliver your creation to the places you care about, whether that means to a file format suitable for your mobile device or big-screen TV, or to an online community like Facebook, YouTube, or Vimeo.

But if that’s¬†all¬†you need to do, you could rely on the simple video editing software that comes with both Windows‚ÄĒthe much-improved Windows¬†Movie Maker, and with Apple Macintosh computers’¬†iMovie¬†app.
