I’ve always wanted to lend my hand to video editing. Recently an advert for Canva popped up on my Facebook feed and I also begun to hear adverts for it on the radio. So I thought I would check it out.
Launched in 2013, Canva is an online design and publishing tool with a mission to empower everyone in the world to design anything and publish anywhere. It is a is a free-to-use online graphic design tool which can be used to create social media posts, presentations, posters, videos, logos and much much more.
The GUI is awesome! So easy to use, presented extremely well and the free offering gives you more than enough to get going. In fact you may never need to pay for the Pro version. You can use it online or install their app, both on your PC/Mac or on your phone so that you can create videos and all sorts on the go.
Having learnt my way around, I set up a YouTube Channel and created myself a compilation of cat and dog videos as well as an A-Z of all animals. Using Canva, I was able to add labels, transitions, music, buttons, and more.
I thought I would then take a look at a professional offering. Having already paid for a Photoshop license, I upgraded to Adobe Creative, which throws in Adobe Premiere Pro. This software is more for the professional but after watching a few videos on YouTube including https://www.youtube.com/c/Primalvideo I have found this software is really easy to use once you get going.
