One of the perks of the YouTube Partner program (along with being able to get paid for hosting ads on videos) is access to Creator Academy. But, did you know that the Creator Academy is also open to the public?
Here’s the main channel with all of their helpful videos – which by the way these ideas can benefit you far past YouTube – many are just great ideas. https://www.youtube.com/user/creatoracademy
If you just have a few minutes only, this 10 Fundamentals video is incredibly great:
While it’s helpful to get started with editing video right on your phone, or using tools like iMovie, etc. if you’re looking to move to the next level (and you have an appropriately powerful computer with at least 16gb of RAM) I would highly recommend checking out the full featured FREE video editing program, DaVinci Resolve. Having edited video on computers since 1997 (those of you who also did back then know how difficult that was… and how expensive) I can say with confidence this is a great program. I also use Adobe Premiere, which is most certainly NOT free, but is what I’m currently quickest with – the full Adobe suite is also a required tool for a lot of the work that I do. But, if that were not the case, I’d be using DaVinci Resolve for just about everything video editing wise. Heads up, this is a fully featured editor – so if you’re not used to NLE video editing this might be a bit overwhelming.
