A video editor is a software application that can be used to edit videos. Video editors are commonly used for creating movies, television shows, and web content.
Videographers use video editors to create short videos for social media, online presentations and other purposes. The same software can be used for both professional and amateur videography. Video editors allow users to add variety to their videos by adding music and effects. They also provide other editing tools such as transitions and overlays. Some video editors also allow users to add graphics, such as logos and images.
Video editors may be stand-alone programs or may be integrated into other applications. For example, Create Studio Pro and VideoPad Video Editor both include dedicated video editing features. They may also include film-related features such as color grading tools. Some video editors are designed for beginners while others are more advanced.
In addition to being able to edit videos, video editors can also be used to trim, merge, split or duplicate clips; add transitions between clips; create titles; crop clips; and create audio tracks.
