Which tools are you using for making videos? Do you pay for making a promotion video or it is made by you? What would you suggest for those issues?

Have you already used Davinci Resolve? There is also VN and Inshot (mobile editors!) For Phovi, our Visual Creators team also work with filmmaking and motion graphics so we are producing new pieces in-house. But if you don't have the team or skillset for it and still want something that is 🔥, get someone/a team to do it :)

Didn't have an opportunity to use Davinci Resolve. I don't have the team and experience but will give it a try with those mobile editors for the beginning. Thank you for the info 🙏

@bikashkampo what a great list, thanks for sharing! and which one do you use yourself?
I recently used Openshot. While it's a good tool for basic video editing - additions etc. I did find it a little clunky and fadeouts and fade-ins aren't as smooth.

@yeshaswini Thank you for the info 🙏 I have also found: https://www.kapwing.com/ and manage to create my very first video for my youtube channel.

1. I use Adobe Premier Pro, but it takes a lot of time for me to edit all the videos, and then convert, render, etc. It is meant for professional usage, not to do it fast and simple )) Also looking for a good and easy to handle tool to speed up the process and make my life easier. 2. We made our videos by ourselves, learning, experimenting, making mistakes, but improving and getting better. You can check and judge yourself: https://www.youtube.com/innmind 3. Start from describing what type of videos do you plan to make? If you want to get practical advice from the community, I think you should give a better idea of your initial task, challenge and goal. There are too many tools on the market and it really differs depending on what type of videos are you struggling with. Simple promo? Animation? Interview/speech? etc?

There are a great amount of free video editing tools I and my friends use for creating amazing mini films and vlogs. For example I adore the tool of adding music in movavi software, because I can make the music louder and then turn it down a little when somebody speaks in the video. I also love to trim the video and use the reverse tool, play the video back. In the end it looks amazing. By the way if you eant to learn more about editing definitely check Movavi Blog.
