Video Editing on Mac
The quality of videos shot on iPhones has improved in recent years. That’s why many people prefer to use them instead of the photo- or video cameras. However, high resolution is one thing and footage quality is a completely different matter. Unwanted objects often spoil the shot in the corner, the camera is shaky, and such videos should be enhanced. Plus, you can make a YouTube-worth movie from your videos.
Most people may think that it takes a lot of time and effort when in reality you’ll only need easy-to-use mac video editing software. For instance, Movavi Video Editor for Mac, where you can edit your footage and create a movie, a slideshow or a video tutorial.
Video Editing on Mac with Movavi
You can upload all the files at once or add them one by one as needed – video, audio, and images. You can edit video transferred from TV tuners, AVCHD- and web-cameras as well. If you want to add your own commentary you can record it with the help of a microphone.
Take a close look at your footage. Is it far from the quality you’ve expected? There is a set of tools that you can use to fix it:
- color correction: automatic and manual
- rotating and cropping
- stabilization tool for reducing camera shake
- filter for getting rid of black bars in vertically shot videos
Working with audio track
Sound editing is an essential part of filmmaking. In the editor, you can enhance the quality of the audio in any video clip, or create your own soundtrack.
Normalize sound if it’s too quiet or adds volume points on the track so the volume changes smoothly. Work with equalizer, add audio effects and eliminate background noises and hisses in order to create clear and original audio track.
In order to create a complete movie from all the footage you have you can do any of the following things:
- precisely trim tracks
- split videos in parts
- zoom and pan
- add fades between fragments
- apply various filters and effects
A few more words about special effects. There are such tools as Chroma Key and Slow Motion that make your video really stand out – you’ll be able to change the background with any image and slow down the speed of the clip. Feel free to try any idea!
Edited video is an eye-pleaser, something you rarely can say about the raw footage. It’s important to keep this fact in mind if you are going to upload videos to social nets. By the way, you can share the result on your YouTube channel directly from Movavi Video Editor. Alternatively, you can save the video in any format you want: MP4, AVI, MOV, WMV, and more.
