Hello multimedia enthusiasts:
For years, I’ve been searching for a user-friendly, quality web-based video editing tool. Lately I’ve been playing around with a program called WeVideo. I can log into it using my Google credentials and create movies based on media I have stored on my computer or on an array of other services, including Picasa, Dropbox, Instagram, and more. You can use the tool free, but if you want to download your final product to your hard drive and use higher quality (1080p, for example), you’ll need to pay a small fee ($36.00 per year).
They have presented two ways of creating videos: the basic storyboard and the timeline. If you’ve done any video editing in the past, the storyboard view will make you bonkers. It’s very, very simple and not very flexible. The timeline view is more likely to work for you. Still, it’s no FCPX or anything. But it may just serve the purpose of getting creators on a single web-based platform.
