Best Youtube Video Editing Software?

Best Youtube Video Editing Software? - As I continue on my slow and steady pace of creating Youtube videos to gain subscribers, views and make money (none of which I have done yet), I have finally narrowed down the video camera I’ll be using temporarily as well as the video editing software.

It has taken me quite a while because I had so many ideas and also I didn’t want to shell out a lot of money if I’m not going to fully invest my precious time into, you know?

Which Camera Did I Choose?

Honestly, I didn’t choose a video camera just yet but rather I’ll just continue using my current Flip Mino as a starter. I’m a completely noob when it comes to Youtube, video editing, etc so I figured I’d learn the ropes as I go because I’m a hands on type of person. I didn’t want to just go out and buy an expensive HD video camera if I didn’t know exactly what I was going to do as my main focus for the Youtube channel.

Here were my thoughts and ideas…

Ideas for Youtube Channel

I was putting a lot of thought into this and the end conclusion was the fact that I wanted to do something that’s comedic. A lot of you guys know me as a business type online entrepreneur but if you knew me in person you would think I’m a goofy guy that likes to make people laugh. I’m sure you guys would have no clue that I’m an online entrepreneur either. :P

I figured I would just stay with something I enjoy and that will not only keep my viewers entertained, but me as well. I’m actually going into this project expecting NOT to make any money because that’s not the point for me. I just want to do something I enjoy and share it with others who have the same taste of comedy.

Here are some of my ideas that I came up with:

Social Experiments With A Twist – I have been doing my own social experiments for years and I find it intriguing. Though, my social experiments aren’t usually stuff that crosses the line. Well, maybe sometimes. But I was thinking about things that I would find funny but weird.

For instance, take your stereotypical looking thug that you would expect to listen to rap or hiphop listen to his headphones walking down the street singing a Prince song or something. You just wouldn’t expect that because of how society is.

Skits and Parodies – I always wanted to do funny skits but coming up with the material is harder than it looks. I’ve always been like an improv person but its different if you’re trying to do skits specifically for Youtube.

Parodies are always funny as well but you have to keep up with the latest trends AND come up with the material easy and quick.

My Life – Hey, believe it or not but a lot of people can get hundreds of thousands or millions or views just on their everyday life. Of course, I would just put the funny moments and add my own twist to it.

So, those are my generic ideas. I don’t think it’s that big of a problem coming up with the material, it’s all the details you have to worry about such as filming the right things, editing… speaking of editing…

The Youtube Video Editing Software I’m Using

Editing videos is the key and if you don’t have someone to do it for you, it might be a problem. I did a little research and ended up choosing Cyberlink PowerDirector 8 as my video editing software I’ll be using. Of course, it’s definitely harder than I expected it would be but I’m sure I’ll learn it in no time.

I think it just reminds me of a Photoshop type program. I mean, you can use regular Paint or whatever default photo editing that comes with your computer but Photoshop is the more advanced stuff. This is definitely going to be a challenge but if you put your mind to it and work hard, the results will show itself in due time.

Anyways, that’s an update of my Youtube project/experiment and I know I haven’t been updating DatMoney very often but big chances may happen soon.

  1. I personally think using my iphone 3gs and uploading it is the easiest way to go for me. It is so quick and doesn’t really take all that much technical skill.

  2. Is Cyberlink PowerDirector 8 freeware or shareware?

    I’ve played around with that one a little bit. For the apst couple of days I’ve been thrown to the wolves with trying to use Final Cut Pro and since I’m not even a mac guy that is turning out to be difficult.

    If you are not doing to fancy of stuff, Windows Movie Maker or iMovie( for the macheads) works pretty well for youtube vids. I bought my kid a copy of Pinnacle studio a while back and he can do some pretty amazing stuff with it.

    Jay check your email for one from me. It could mean some dollars for you.

  4. Hey Jay, Thought your post was right on, only because I think a lot of people are thinking about YouTube being their ticket to some extra moolah. Even I thought about YT only after seeing some of these kids or stupid tricks making money, I’m not sure where that money comes from but it does sound like a great idea. I had never once thought of editing which of course would be a very important aspect of the doing a good video. Thanks for your ideas,great post.

    Getting subscribers on youtube is a great way to get exposure. I think parodies and comedy videos do the best.

    Hi ya,

    Just wondered if you were coming back? Haven’t seen a post from you in over two months.

    Would be a sham as I think a lot of people, myself included, get a lot of help and information from this blog.

    Dean – I’ve had a lot of things going on right now so I’m trying to sort out everything. Recently, I haven’t had that much to experiment with so I would rather not post crap articles, you know? I want to have good content that will be helpful and until I have time to write everything out, test, show results, it’s going to wait.

    A good example is the fact that I’m finally getting to work on the whole Youtube channel and the whole video editing takes a lot more time and a lot to learn.

    But hope you stick around!

    Hey dude, the best editing software would be either Magix Movie Edit Pro or Sony Vegas, they are the best, I know they are production heavy and they have a learning curve, but it has all the features one would need on youtube.

    I know this because this is what I use for my webseries. And it has worked out so good so far.
