#Tip of the day for journalists: Editing video using YouTube

October 22nd, 2012Posted by in Top tips for journalists

Mashable  has a guide on using YouTube’s video editor. It has advice on trimming your clips, stabilisation and transitions.

Many people don’t even realise YouTube has built-in editing capabilities — after all, the editor is not easily found on the site.

One way to access it is by going directly to the URL, which is Or click on “Video Manager”, which will make the “Video Editor” tab appear directly under the search bar at the top of the page.

Once you get to the editor, you will need to figure out the timeline. Linear video editors like YouTube’s are based around an intuitive and easy-to-use timeline. If you want to add a clip from your pool of videos into the project, simply drag it onto the timeline. You can also include any YouTube videos that were uploaded with a “Creative Commons” licence.

The guide is at this link.
