How many times have you had to put your hand to the photos of the last holidays, because you wanted to reproduce the presentation of the same ones in a nice video clip? Or maybe you want to launch a new project, moving the steps into the world of video editing for the first time?
Whatever your purpose, if you are going to add filters, transitions or text effects to your clips, you need the right programs to make videos.
As with the vast majority of software designed for the most diverse uses, they can be divided into two large categories:
Programs to make online videos.
Programs downloaded and installed on the PC to make videos.
As far as the first category is concerned, that of free tools, we will talk about a couple of online services that stand out from the many available on the Net for their ease of use, for the pleasant result and for the vastly appreciable package of features.
This first software to make online videos is called FlexClip. Once connected to the FlexClip site, you need to click on the “Get Started – Free” button to start creating a video.
Immediately afterward, FlexClip will ask you to log in via Facebook, Google Plus or via a FlexClip account: if you don’t have one, you can easily create it by registering on the site, starting immediately to use this tool that is among the best programs for making online videos.
Here you are finally in the screen to create the video, which will allow you to juggle with photos or videos, to merge them together or to add some basic text effect between the scenes. Photos and videos can be easily uploaded, directly from the computer but also from the FlexClip library.
With this service, which is revealed as one of the most useful programs for making online videos, it is possible to choose a static or dynamic background for the final presentation, and also to add background music to the entire movie.
Once completed, it will be possible to download the resulting video or share it directly on your social networks at a maximum resolution of 1080p for free.
WeVideo is another one program for making videos on the web that are useful in case you are not at home to tinker with a program installed on your PC. Or if you still don’t want or have time to go deeper into the video editing experience.
Do you want to create a nice video without too many tools that make you lose in endless and unknown possibilities? WeVideo does just that for you: among the programs for making online videos, it is among the most appreciated, thanks to the good degree of customization it offers for free.
After connecting to the WeVideo site, you need to log in from Facebook, Google or Yahoo. Alternatively, you will need to create a WeVideo account to start the fun.
At that point, just click on the green “Create New Video” button and wait for the editor to load, which will immediately ask you the reasons that lead you to the creation of the video and the degree of experience you have in the field of video editing.
With WeVideo you can upload photos or videos directly from your PC or from the web, and in particular from Google Drive, Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Dropbox, Picasa, Box, One Drive, and DailyMotion.
WeVideo is one of the few programs for making online videos that offers a free maximum space for your creations: 10 GB, for a total of 7 minutes and 30 seconds.
Of course, it is possible to choose a background for the clip, the transition effects between the different scenes or photos, a piece of background music, a text to taste and there are also the possibility of adding a narrating voice to the entire video.
At the end of the work, you can then share the video on Youtube, Vimeo, Dropbox or Google Drive, in the resolutions available free of 480p or 720p.
Try any one of the above online video editing tools and turn your creativity into amazing video creations in a breeze.
