Hoping someone here can help. Rather new to it.. Looking into a GoPro or Samsung S8 for taking pics and videos and compiling them into montages of what we have done for the week..

 

I am currently using PowerDirector 10 which appears to be doing the job.. Can anyone here suggest a reasonably low cost solution? I also need music, what is the go for loading music onto the video clip and uploading that to YouTube with copyright e.t.c.?

 

 

 

Any help much appreciated..

 

 

 

Cheers.

Most "serious" YouTubers will use Final Cut Pro (Apple) or Premiere Pro (Adobe)
These are not very cheap though.

 

Don't use any music you don't have rights for.
Your video will be taken down very quickly.

Google "Royalty Free Music" as there are some sights who give you free royalty free music.

Or, YouTube actually has free music you can download or add to the video after upload:

There are also paid music sites that you can subscribe to to get good music. Although they are usually a monthly subscription and usually paid you tubers are the ones that use those types of services. The free ones that you tube provides are ok. 

 

I use adobe premiere for my videos, but it is overkill for most editing. Have heard some youtubers use microsofts movie maker software, which is a bit surprising. Sure there are you tube videos showing how to use different packages for editing videos and the lowest cost options.

I'm an Adobe Premiere user, always have been.  Is there any option for you to get a work/student license option?  If so, I'd say go that way.

If you can't do this, then there are free options that are actually really well spec'd.  They just may have less support options for example.

These two spring to mind:

https://hitfilm.com/express/

 

Re music, the game has changed.  YouTube does not take down videos anywhere near as much any more, you just can't use them to make money if a copyright song has been used.
Once detected, YouTube behaves as per the rights holders preferred option, and often nowadays that is to leave the video up, but the artist makes money from the adverts that will show on it.

If no ad popups is really important to you, then use the YouTube video library.

there is some free options if you scroll down the bottom, i have been playing with the beta, works well but beta, there is also version 12.5 for free ( so the link states), similar in use to Premiere Pro, its free to download and try out.

Your results may vary, but I've found this to have a steep learning curve.
Probably affected by learning another application first, but thought I'd mention it.

I've used the Nero Suite frequently to create video and photo montages.

 

The usual fades, etc are includes, as well as adding sound tracks.

 

Clipping, snipping, etc.

 

Not cheap, but maybe better priced than the Adobe and other products.

 

I've continually upgraded my suite over the years, for around $30-$40 per upgrade when they have the super specials. Currently $77.95NZ

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

I use open source ShotCut, works well enough for simple things like trims, brightening and putting a few clips together. Premier Elements is what I'll move to sooner or later.
