A couple of days ago, I was in New York City and with my iPhone 7s Plus, I captured a few seconds of video footage. Before that day, I had been afraid to use the video feature of my iPhone. It was very simple, and I wish that I had recorded for a longer time. When I got home, I had to figure out how to Upload the video to Youtube. The initial video caught the top of a bald man’s head, and it ended abruptly. I learned how to edit the video to eliminate those issues, and this is what I learned:
To get the movie on my computer, I used the free software Clip Grab and saved it in a file that I prepared for it on my computer.
I opened Movie Maker [also a free program]. I clicked on “Home,” and then I selected “Add videos and photos.”
From the file where it was saved, I clicked “Open.”
The bald head is at the very end.
I manually slid the video to before the moment that the bald head appeared.
I right-clicked on the video’s actual timeline, and I selected “Split.”
After you select “Split,” you will see that the video has two distinctive parts
I did not want the last part, and I clicked on that portion and then clicked “Delete” on my computer.
When I saved the edited video, I changed the name of the edited version, thus preserving the original, tool.
I did not like that the music did not fade and that it ended abruptly. To fix that problem,
Beneath the word “File,” I selected “Fade” and I applied the Fade at a Medium rate.
Go to File – Save Movie – Recommended for this project.
After the file was saved to my computer, I Uploaded it from my Youtube page.
After the tags and the title were added, I clicked “Publish.”
The following is the Edited Video:
The Following is the movie before the edits.
