With WeVideo the three main steps to editing your video are:
Step 1: Add your content - With the free version of WeVideo you can store up to 5 GB of videos, images, and audio files. You can add content in six different ways:
- Upload your own files
- Import files you already have from Drive, InstaGram, Flickr, Facebook, Dropbox, Picasa, and Box
- Record live in WeVIdeo with your webcam and microphone
- Use the stock video clips and audio tracks provided by WeVideo
- Access files shared from other users
- Use the WeVideo Android app to record and sync video and images.
- Storyboard mode - This mode lets you add videos, photos, audio, and themes.
- Timeline mode - This mode add Transitions, Graphics (Text, Frames, Animations, Effects), and Voice-over Narration
- Advanced Timeline mode - This mode lets you add additional tracks for multi-track projects.
In addition to the free version, there are pay options if you wish to add more storage and more export time per month. However, even with the limitations of the free account, WeVideo is a great option for students needing to do videos for school projects for many reasons:
- It can be used by beginners to quickly make a simple, but great looking, video.
- Or it can be used by more experienced users who want all the bells and whistles of video editing.
- Since WeVideo is cloud based, users can access and work on their videos from anywhere, something that is not possible with desktop video programs.
- Better yet, the “We” in "WeVideo" means that students can collaborate on video projects together.
- And best yet, it is free!
