How to edit video in YouTube?


Greetings, friends! In this article, we will learn how to edit a video on YouTube. I will show how to do anatations, subtitles and the rest. These are the necessary things to promote a business through your YouTube channel. And who wants to become a real pro in his computer, I recommend getting training in "computer tricks."

In previous articles, we examined:

  • How to download video from YouTube
  • How to upload a video to your channel on YouTube and change it.

Now we’ll look at how any beginner will be able to edit the video on YouTube. Let's start with the subtitles. We go to your channel. See the picture below.

Now we select any of our videos, open it. And after the video has opened, click on the "video manager" button at the bottom right. A similar picture opens before you:

Here we look what video we want to edit. We click on the black inverted triangle, as shown in the picture, and select the anatomy.

Here you need to choose to add anatomy and in the opened submenu, select the word "callout". You have a place for recording on the video. You can move it wherever you want. Just left-click, drag to the desired location and release.

Now you can increase the field for recording by clicking on one of the black squares around the perimeter and dragging to the side. Do as I show below:

Well, now you can start writing what you want to convey to your viewers. For example, I’ll write the address of my blog.

See where you need to write? On the right, under the word leader there is a field for writing. And under this field are the tools. You can change the font size, letter color and background color. Thus, you can safely edit your video recording on YouTube.

Now all that’s left is to set how much time your record will be displayed. Below you see red brackets, with which you can set the duration of the display of your subtitle. You just need to drag these brackets with the left mouse button and set in which place your entry will appear and in which to disappear.

You can set up multiple entries this way. For example, one disappears and another appears in another place on the screen, or the same one. Thus, you can better draw the attention of viewers to your inscription.

Many people ask how to set their picture on the video. Right here, where we are now, you see the inscription “information and settings”.

Now you have been thrown to the video editing location, where in YouTube you can change the image on the video, or put your icon. I show how to put an icon by selecting it on my computer.

You see, now we edited the video on YouTube and set the icon that we need on the video. Now we click “improve video” and now “auto-correction”. So you can improve the quality if you want.

Further on, there is a very important “blur” function. Click on it. Here you can either blur all faces, or blur the desired area in the video.

Now choose the area you want your viewers to not see. Select it and click on the "finish" button. Just pre-select the duration of the blur. This is done in the same way as we set the anatomy on the roller. Watch carefully as I show in the pictures.

Next, you have the opportunity to crop fragments in your video on YouTube. I show it to you on the screenshots from my screen. By the way, you can learn how to make screenshots in my article “How to make a screen”.

I would like to note a very interesting feature for video editing on YouTube. This is slowing down and speeding up playback. In the “improve video” tab in the editor, you see the words “slowdown” and “accelerated video” to the right of the image. And under them buttons how many times you are going to change the speed. Try these features right now. This is really interesting for you and your subscribers.

So in this way, if you edit the video on your YouTube channel, then they will be different from everyone else. You ask, what will it give you? Yes, it’s clear that it will be interesting on your channel!

You will attract more subscribers and more views. Your business will go uphill because you will become popular. But it will be necessary to use the tool, which I talk about in the article "YouTube cheat". So people will find out about you.

And if no one knows about your channel, how will your views appear? I repeat that this information must be combined with the information in my article on YouTube.

I also remind you that if you want to become a specialist, then go through the training “with a computer on you in 1 day”. Now you have complete information in your hands, use it necessarily and promote your identity and your business on the Internet.
