For a miễn phí editing phầm mềm available on 4 platforms, it really does pack an awful lot of features. Both desktop và app versions will even allow export up to 4K resolution.


There’s also a sneaky way to địa chỉ cửa hàng multiple video tracks, like you can with LumaFusion.

VlogNow: Setting Up

After opening toàn quốc editor, you find yourself in the home window. There’s a few buttons at the very top, right corner. If you tap the settings cog you can set some basic export parameters.

*

If you know you will mostly want to export in 4K, you can mix it here, so it will bởi vì so by default. You can also phối export frame rate and bitrate too. So 4K và high bitrate will give you the highest quality but will also take up much more memory on your device.

If you toggle on Export Original, nước ta will export the same settings as the video clip you used when editing. If you are editing a TikTok video, for example, that tiện ích can only show 1080p video so you may as well leave it at 1080p here.

*

About a third of the way down the screen is a row of buttons. These are for importing various resources like templates, filters for colour, music for adding lớn your edits, sound fx và fonts.

This big blank section here is where your edits will be saved, under various headings, depending how you decided to create your edit.

At the bottom, there is another row of buttons. The one we want for starting a new project is the square button with a plus sign inside.


*

VlogNow: Starting a Project

Start a new project by tapping that plus button.

We’re taken to lớn a new screen where we need to lớn choose 1 of the following 3 options: New project, Story or Template.

New project just launches the editor interface directly. Story gives you prompts to lớn follow và then assembles the footage in the main editor for you to work on. Template uses a specific format so that you don’t have to do much editing work yourself.

If this is your first time with this software, just go with the basic New Project.

VlogNow: Importing Video

Once you choose New Project you are taken to a new screen which is basically the photo and đoạn phim gallery on your device. At the đứng đầu are 2 tabs, video and photo, & you just tap the one you want lớn select from.

You can always địa chỉ cửa hàng more videos later, so really you can just choose 1 đoạn clip here if you want. Then showroom other clips later.

The videos you select now appear at the bottom, with the duration of each đoạn phim inside the thumbnail. Click this big xanh button with an arrow. Sometimes it will say processing, this means the đoạn clip needs to be converted to be editable in VN.

*

Now you will find yourself in VN’s main editing window.

Main Editing Screen Overview

Let’s quickly look at the layout of the editing screen.

*

At the vị trí cao nhất in the middle we have a button which allows you to lớn set your frame ratio. The mặc định is original, which is square. So ok for Instagram.

But you can choose standard 16:9, for any đoạn clip you want in that regular ratio. Lượt thích for YouTube, for example. If this is for TikTok or for any vertical format, lượt thích Facebook or Instagram stories, the button with the TikTok logo, which is 9:16.

If you want that cinematic widescreen ratio, choose 21:9. You can even choose khổng lồ export your đoạn phim with a circular crop.

Well, I’m going lớn choose the cinematic 21:9. The ratio will change in the preview window, which is this area directly below the frame ratio button.

At the bottom of the preview window, you can see this thin grey line with breaks in it. This represents all the clips on your timeline. The breaks represent edit points between clips.

Below this line on the left is a time counter. On the left is the current playhead position. On the right is the total duration of all your clips together.

The 2 blunted arrows shuttle the playhead along lớn the next edit point. So if you want to move quickly to lớn the start of a particular clip, it’s very easy to do so using these buttons.

Between those buttons is the play button. Tap lớn stop and start your video clip to preview your edit.

*

And on the right of this row of controls are the undo và redo buttons. If you went wrong & need to recover, tap the left one. If you decide after all you want khổng lồ go ahead with those changes, tap the redo button.

Main Editing Window: Tracks

Next down is a row of tracks. At the vị trí cao nhất is the music track, next is the text track, then there’s the sticker track or PiP (which stands for Picture-in-Picture). Picture-in-Picture refers to an image placed on đứng đầu or within another image.

Next track down is your main đoạn phim track, where all the clips you imported at the start are now laid out. Và finally, the bottom track is the audio track. This contains the audio connected to lớn the clip clips you imported.

So if you don’t really want the sound from your videos, for example, if you are just going to be editing a montage, then you can simply mute the entire audio track there. Then the only audio you will hear will be whatever you địa chỉ in that top track.

*

You can shrink và expand the whole timeline by pinching with 2 fingers. This is useful if you want khổng lồ zoom out to get a wider view or zoom in to lớn see a section in more detail.

Splitting và Trimming

The first và most important thing to lớn know is how khổng lồ trim a clip. There’s 2 ways.

The first way is to lớn tap lớn select a đoạn clip which then opens up a bunch of options. If you drag the end of the clip, you change the length of the clip. Drag from the front to lớn cut off the beginning, drag from the back lớn cut off the end.

The second way to trim a video clip is by using the scissor tool. Place the playhead line where you want to lớn cut and tap the scissors button. Now your clip will be split at that point & one video is now 2 clips.

*

Maybe you just want lớn keep one of those clips. So tap in the đoạn phim you want khổng lồ get rid of and tap delete. In these kinds of apps, they don’t allow gaps in the edit with no clips. The clips automatically shuffle along to lớn fill the gap you created by deleting a clip.

Trim Window

There’s actually another option for trimming clips. You can see next to the split button is a trim button. If you tap this it opens up a new trim window.

The trim window is less cluttered so it’s easier lớn see what you are doing. Again you can use these blunted arrows khổng lồ skip between clips. Below the đoạn clip is a series of time duration choices.

This allows you khổng lồ quickly select a duration. Original simply selects the entire clip.

*

Just lượt thích in the main editing window, you can drag the ends of the đoạn phim to resize it. The duration of the video indicated in the centre of the đoạn phim will change accordingly.

You will see that as long as you have the window on play, nước ta will keep cycling around the selected clip. So once you have the length you want, you can now tap & slide the video clip backwards & forward.

As you slide your finger, the clip slides position below the yellow box. So this is a great way lớn get the exact position in the clip and get more accuracy in your edit.

When you are done, tap the done tick.

Reordering clips

If you want to change the order of your clips, it’s very easy. Just select and hold on a clip, all the clips now resize into square thumbnails. Then drag và drop the đoạn phim into a new position.

VlogNow: showroom Transitions

It’s very easy to địa chỉ transitions between clips in toàn nước editor. Just tap the box between the clips where you want to địa chỉ a transition. It’s a white box with a plus sign in the middle.

*

Now you will be taken khổng lồ the transition window. Below the preview window there are 2 options for different types of transitions: Normal và Matte.

You can swipe along to kiểm tra out all the available transitions under each tab. Matte transitions involve painting one video over another using a preset mask animation.

You can select a transition and then adjust the length for the transition. If you want to lớn create a very slow crossfade from one shot lớn the next choose Dissolve and then use the slider to make it really slow.

Some transitions allow you lớn apply khổng lồ all. This is if you just want khổng lồ quickly edit a bunch of clips và use the same transition each time.

Clip Controls

Let’s look at the control you have over each video when it’s selected.

*

So when you tap on a clip, this yellow box opens up. You can delete a đoạn phim from here.

Duplicate adds another copy of the clip selected next khổng lồ it.

Keyframes

Keyframes allow you khổng lồ animate aspects of the clip. For example, you can create a zoom.

Drop a keyframe where you want the zoom khổng lồ start. Move khổng lồ the where you want the zoom lớn end & use 2 fingers on the preview window lớn expand the video. A new keyframe is created.

*

Once you have 2 keyframes you can địa chỉ cửa hàng a curve. This makes the animation change tốc độ during the action, depending on the curve you choose.

For example, if you want the zoom lớn start slow, speed up và then slow down as it comes to lớn the end. Curves make your animation look much less robotic and more professional.

Replace allows you lớn switch the selected video clip with another clip. Use this if you are happy with the length of the clip, but you just want a different clip. This means if you are happy with the pace of your edit, you don’t need khổng lồ redo the edit just because you want a different clip.

How to color Grade using toàn nước VlogNow Editor

There’s a few more buttons at the bottom of the screen I haven’t yet gone over. On the left is Template. This simply puts your clips into a preset editing template as I mentioned at the start. This basically does the same thing.

Next khổng lồ that is a button labelled “filter”. This is where you find VN’s colour controls. Tap this to mở cửa the filter window.

Whichever clip was under the playhead when you use the filter button will now be in the preview window at the top. And this is the đoạn clip which will have the filter applied khổng lồ it.

Below the preview window are 2 tabs – Filter & Adjust.

*

When in the filter tab, you will apply a preset filter. There’s a secondary set of tabs which allow you khổng lồ select different preset filters.

Original is without any filter. So, if you want khổng lồ reset your colour & delete any filter you have added, just tap here.

Swiping along the filter tabs to browse the presets. Just tap on the thumbnail to thử nghiệm it out. You can also use the Intensity Slider lớn adjust the strength of the filter.

If you like the look of the filter but want less of it, slide it down from 100 to your prefered level.

Tapping the X will remove the filter và return you back to lớn the main edit window.

Tapping Apply to all will apply this filter to lớn all the clips on your timeline.

This big white plus sign allows you to lớn import new preset filters. So, if you have a LUT you want to lớn use, this is where you import it. I’ll go into adding LUTs later.

You can also adjust the look of the đoạn phim manually. Tap the Adjust tab & now you have a bunch of settings lớn swipe through.

Adjust Colour with toàn nước Editor

Let’s go through each of these hue and luma settings. Just swipe through và then use the slider control below to adjust the amount. Basically, within the range of plus or minus 100.

Exposure allows you lớn brighten or darken the image.

Contrast allows you to địa chỉ cửa hàng or remove contrast. Now, as smartphone footage often has high contrast, it’s quite useful to be able lớn rescue it. You can actually bring back details from the shadows this way.

To my eyes, this video has too much contrast. The shadows are crushed và look a bit ugly to me. So if I pull back the contrast on this clip, now these dark areas lighten a bit.

*

Brightness allows you lớn brighten or darken the image, lượt thích exposure. So what’s the difference between these 2 settings? Why vì we need both if they vì chưng the same thing?

The difference is, exposure mainly works on the highlights. Whereas brightness works on the whole image. When I adjust Exposure, the dark area remains the same while the light areas change. See how the shadows are as dark as they were, even after I boost exposure.

However, when I boost brightness you can see now the shadows also boost and look more grey.

*

The next 2 settings are saturation và vibrance. Both these settings enhance the colour of the image and make red redder, xanh bluer & so on. Again, these settings are similar so it might be confusing as to why we need both.

Well, there is a difference. Saturation boosts (or reduces) colour saturation in general. Vibrance on the other hand boosts (or reduces) only the colours which are underrepresented in the image. So the Vibrance setting is a bit more subtle.

Reducing Saturation to -100 gives you no colours (otherwise known as black and white). But reducing Vibrance lớn -100 only makes a subtle change.

Temperature is essentially xanh at the bottom & red at the top & a mixture in between. If you want lớn cool off the image, move the slider lớn the negative. If you want khổng lồ warm it, move to the positive.

Vignette adds a light or dark vignette around the edge. It’s not too subtle in this app, so not sure if I’d use that.

Sharpness allows you lớn sharpen the image. This means it will look harsher. In previous versions, they allowed you lớn reduce sharpness which is far more useful. Because a softer image is more filmic.

But for some reason the developers decided we can no longer be trusted with the mighty power of the softening of our đoạn clip clips.

Hue is lượt thích temperature, except rather than going from cold khổng lồ hot, it runs through a rainbow of hues and adds them lớn the image.

Highlight and shadow allow you to boost the highlights or shadows. In other words, you can brighten both. Again, the wise vn developers have decided not to allow us khổng lồ darken the shadows or highlights. Which is pretty weird khổng lồ be honest.

Being able khổng lồ reduce the brightness of highlights would be such a useful feature (which is why it’s available on most editing programs).

Slow Motion và Speed Ramping

To access VN’s slow motion or speed ramping features, tap the speed button. This takes you into a new window.

I’m going to use this skateboarding đoạn phim I downloaded from Pexels. We need a đoạn clip with some more dynamic movement lớn show off these features. This đoạn clip is actually already slow motion, but we can still use it.

In the tốc độ window, immediately it starts looping through the clip. There’s 2 options here: curve & regular.

Regular is when you want to lớn speed up or slow down the entire clip. When you select the regular tab, you simply get a slider lớn adjust speed. 1x is normal. Move it left lớn slow down the clip or right khổng lồ speed up the clip.

I’m going to speed this up lớn 2x to lớn get rid of this slow motion. Because I want khổng lồ create a speed ramp effect using curves.

Back in the Curve tab, it keeps the setting I mix in Regular. So if you need to, you can use both these effects simultaneously.

*

Speed ramping is when the speed of the đoạn phim changes during the clip. I’ll show you with this đoạn phim of a skateboarder here.

Let’s try khổng lồ have the video slow right at the moment he does the trick with the skateboard.

The white circles on this yellow line are points which we can drag up or down khổng lồ adjust the speed, but only at that point. I’m going lớn pull down this middle one. Now when it loops round to the trick, it creates a cool effect to emphasise the action.

But the timing isn’t quite right. So now I will adjust these circles to fine tune the ramp. I think it’s slowing down too soon, so I’ll just drag the 2nd circle khổng lồ the right. Also, I think the ramp is too long, so I’ll drag the 4th circle to lớn the left.

*

If you long-hold on these white circles, you can delete them. So that’s basically how to vì chưng a speed ramp. There’s also preset curves you can use to lớn speed up your editing process.

VlogNow: Adding LUTs

So now I will show you how to địa chỉ cửa hàng a LUT (or Look Up Table) to lớn your clip. A LUT is lượt thích a preset colour grading file. The idea is that a LUT file works on your video clip a bit more scientifically to create a certain look for your clip.

In this example, I have a đoạn clip I shot using McPro24fps using the mLog100% log profile. You can see it is washed out looking. On the McPro24fps website they provide không tính tiền technical LUTs. And these LUTs can convert your Log clips into Rec.709 which is an industry standard colour space.

*

Now I had a problem importing this LUT. Then I found out how to fix this bug. First, tap the filter button to mở cửa the filter window. Now tap the big plus button và then the top option in the next window, Import from file Manager.

So first I tried khổng lồ import using Google Drive but I got this “unsupported files” message. Then I tried to download the LUT first. Now I navigated khổng lồ the download thư mục on my phone, but again it said “unsupported files” message.

So this is what you have khổng lồ do. Instead of going directly khổng lồ the download tab here, go to lớn the next tab down – this is the name of your device, whatever it is called on your device. Mine is called Simon’s Galaxy Note20 Ultra.

*

Now look for the Downloads folder. Xuất hiện that & find the LUT. Mở cửa it và it should import into nước ta editor. You will see it appear here.

Now when you return to the filter window, you will find the LUT as one of the filter options. Just tap it and it will apply to lớn your video. Use the slider again if you want khổng lồ adjust the strength of the LUT.

Adding Music và Audio in nước ta Editor

To add music just tap the plus sign by the music note. Or just simply tap in the music track, which is the đứng top track in the main edit window.

Now you get 3 choices: Music, Effect or Record.

VlogNow: Music

I’ll choose this, by tapping it. This opens up a new window where you can place the music and địa chỉ cửa hàng a fade effect.

This white box here represents the duration of your edit. Because the music is longer than my edit, I can swipe left và right khổng lồ choose which part of the track I want khổng lồ use. I can adjust volume and địa chỉ a fade in or out.

I’m just going khổng lồ start from the beginning so I’ll click the tick lớn take it back to lớn the main screen.

*

Now you can see the music video appear in the đứng top track. If I tap on it I get some options, lượt thích with the đoạn clip clip.

If you are editing a montage, I always think it’s a good idea to lớn edit to the beat of the music. I use the visual peaks of the music lớn find the beat lớn cut on.

Now I use the scissors khổng lồ split the video and delete the bit I don’t want. I’m just going to make a few edits here khổng lồ show you how we can really create a punchy montage lượt thích this.

VlogNow: Effect

If you choose Effect, you get a series of sound effects lớn add. The first one says cartoon, but honestly they mostly all sound like cartoon effects. You can also địa chỉ cửa hàng your own from folders on your device.

VlogNow: Record

If you choose Record, you get the voice over record window. Just hit record, wait for the countdown & start talking.

Adding Text with việt nam Editor

Tap the Text track or the T button by the track to xuất hiện the text window. Choose standard or one of the preset animated text templates.

Now đầu vào your text. Change the font, change the size, change the colour, change the position. There’s really quite a lot of options here to lớn play around with.

*

When you’re done, click the done tick.

Now you can địa chỉ cửa hàng keyframes khổng lồ your text. Just select, địa chỉ the first keyframe, move the text which automatically creates the 2nd keyframe. Now showroom one of those curves lớn make it more pro.

Add Multiple video tracks (stickers và PiP)

Finally we come lớn the last track. Tap và choose between video clip / photo or sticker. So this is how we sneakily add multiple đoạn phim tracks.

Tap the clip button. Choose a clip or photo from your gallery. But if you want that extra clip track, địa chỉ a video.

Now it opens up the đoạn clip on top, but smaller. Drag the resize button bottom left and fill the frame, if you wish to lớn have multiple đoạn phim tracks.

*

Now you can edit this đoạn phim just like the clips in the main track. In fact, you get more options, because you can also showroom motion effects.

If you tap the plus sign to lớn the left of the track, you can keep adding more videos & more tracks. You can use all the filters & other buttons at the bottom.

Advantages of Multiple clip Tracks

But why would we want all these clip tracks? Well, it depends what you are editing & how you like to edit. When I’m editing something complicated in Adobe Premiere, I will have 2 or more đoạn clip tracks. At least at the start when I’m blocking out the edit.

Let’s say my main video track has me talking lớn camera. Now I want to địa chỉ cửa hàng some B roll shots over my voice over. But it’s much quicker to have a separate track, which allows me khổng lồ drop a video clip in without having to cut holes in the main track và mess about trying to get the right timing.

*

Also, using toàn nước editor, if I cut in some B roll it will cut out the audio as well. So by adding this as a video on top, I preserve the original audio. So basically, perfect for vlogs, tech đánh giá and so on.

By default, the audio from one of these clips is muted. But if you want the audio from the video clip as well, all you have to vị is select the video clip and tap the audio button và slide the volume up.

Last few features…

So that is how lớn edit using VlogNow editor. There are a few other controls such as FX, Crop, Mirror, Flip. Use Freeze to địa chỉ a freeze frame into a clip. You can reverse a video so it plays backwards. Zoom allows you to add various movement effects to a clip, lượt thích zoom in, zoom out and so on.

The Forward button here is useful, as it allows you khổng lồ move a đoạn phim from the main timeline up onto a timeline above.

And that’s pretty much it.
