If you are looking for an easy way to edit video without buying or installing anything, then WeVideo would be of interest to you. It’s in-the-cloud nature allows you to edit from any internet connection, even if all you have is your SmartPhone or Touch Pad.

WeVideo Makes video editing accessible to everyone with internet connection
WeVideo say they are on a mission to give everybody the capacity to edit professional-looking videos easily and cheaply. We Video is a video editing system that is all online. There’s nothing to download, no software to buy or install. All you need is a membership to we video. You can start with a free account to see if you like it.
I signed up the other day to see how well their system works. I found their claims to be very true; it was indeed amazingly robust and fairly easy to use. I was editing instantly after uploading my clips. Now, let me say that I do think it helped that I already know how to edit. The WeVideo system is very similar to standard video editing software. So it was easy to find my way around, but if you are not as familiar with video editing, then it will take a bit more time to learn, but honestly, it is still quite easy and you can absolutely master their system.
WeVideo is not an automated editing system like Animoto, although they do have a feature called the video wizard which will automate part of the process if you wish. But generally, WeVideo is more like standard video editing, it’s just that you do it in the cloud, not on your own computer. So you have complete control over how your finished video looks, which is not the case for automated systems like Animoto. But of course, WeVideo will not be as fast or brainless as Animoto either. So both systems have their advantages for different users
The video tutorial at the top of the page demonstrates the WeVideo system. Below is a written explanation.
First, I uploaded some video clips. WeVideo can accept clips taken on any device, camera or telephone, so that compatibility alone is pretty cool. Once the clips were in my account, I created a project and put the clips into the project.
Essentially, it is a drag and drop system, so you just put whatever clip you want to use down in the timeline in whatever order you want. The timeline of course is where you build your finished video, that is standard for all video editing systems.
Now, one cool thing with WeVideo is that they have royalty free music ready for you to use, all you have to do is select a clip and put it in your time line. They also have sound effects, transitions and easy titles and graphics. Some of the titles are even pre-animated. They also have a system where you can record audio and upload it as you record. I was able to use my webcam to upload some narration. I had to bring the volume control down pretty low to keep it from over modulating, so if you’re getting a lot of red in this volume meter, take it down a notch or two. But t his is a great feature, being able to record and upload the audio right into your project.
WeVideo gives you multiple video lines and audio lines, so make sure and put stuff on the correct line. Graphics and titles go on top of the video. As you can see, the music can be brought up and brought down, all you have to do is click on a point and move this line up or down. This is how you will mix narration and music. You also have lots of options for transitions, which you place between two clips. The WeVideo system lets you add as many lines as you need.
Once you are done editing, you can easily export from we video straight to YouTube, Facebook or other video destination sites. You can also post the video on your blog or website. Or, you can download it to your computer. This saves you the headache of having to convert and upload the video yourself. It’s already online, and WeVideo will automatically create the correct video file format. That alone is a big help.
Who would benefit from using WeVideo?
All-in-all, WeVideo is a good solution for people who want to edit video but do not want to invest in a huge and powerful desktop computer and the software it takes to edit. You can access We Video from any internet connection, so you can now edit video on your smart phone or tablet!
You can also invite others into your account for collaborative editing and sharing of clips. WeVideo is pushing this aspect quite hard. They’ve got a growing community so you will find plenty of like-minded people on the site you can collaborate with or learn from.
We video is brand new, it’s still in beta but the system worked flawlessly for me and I was truly impressed! WeVideo makes video editing accessible to anyone and it’s so easy a child, or even a grandparent can use it! Make your videos more fun to watch with video editing.
