YouTube’s video editor
YouTube introduced its own video editor about a year ago and therefore basic editing is now quite easy.
Think about it, if you are in Kenya, you can shoot today, upload footage that evening – and have excerpts for your organization’s website the following day.
Moreover, it can be in HD without the need of a powerful computer because its all web-based. Google’s servers provide the editing power.
Of course, this assumes you can upload the footage from your location in the first place and live with YouTube’s restrictions on length of a clip (15 minutes). But with some planning you can do it.
Right now I use it with colleagues who are not in the same city as I am. I take professional footage – add time code – and they then select clips from interviews. All I have to do is check out the time code on the final product.
Here is a short video on CNET that explains the Google’s video editor.
