Common features of video editing software

Not all video editing software packages share the same features, but most let you do the following:

  • create video by adding video clips, photos and music to a timeline
  • add titles and special effects
  • add and remove audio, eg music or voice over
  • trim or crop the video - remove video from the start or end, or choose the best bit and delete the rest
  • save or output a video in different file formats and at different quality settings

Some video editing software packages let you instantly share your edited video to online services.

Many smartphones now include camera software that allows limited editing facilities such as the ability to trim, add a filter to, change the brightness of or crop the video.
