Make movies online with Video Creator for YouTube
If you’re looking to make a YouTube video made up of various clips and images and not sure how to edit it all together, then you’re going to need a video creator. Luckily for you, you’re already in the right place.
Normally, creating and editing your own movie would involve downloading costly software or potentially harmful apps onto your device.
However, our YouTube Video Creator is online and free, so the editing will be quick and easy. The best thing is that it works on any device.
You don’t have to be worried about security either. The tool deletes your data from its servers shortly after use.
How to create a YouTube video in three steps
Upload your files
To get started and add files from your device, just tap the ‘Choose files’ button at the top of this page.
If your clips are backed up in a cloud storage account, our tool allows uploading directly from there. Simply tap the down-arrow on the right and a drop-down menu will appear with the option to transfer from Dropbox or Google Drive.
Quite cleverly, if the clip you want to use is already online, for example on YouTube, you can just paste its link in the URL box at the bottom of the drop-down menu and it will upload automatically.
Get your editing hat on
Once uploaded, you’ll be taken to the video editor where you can add additional content (up to 500MB each file) for free. Just tap ‘Add more files’ in the top right.
Under this, make sure you select the 16:9 ratio so your movie is formatted perfectly for YouTube.
You’ll notice you can change the image duration if you’ve added them, and add music for some background tunes if you’d like. Check the crossfade box for a smooth transition between files.
The Video Creator for YouTube allows selecting a new output format at the bottom left. For YouTube, we recommend MP4.
Next, hit ‘Create’ and your video will be processed.
Time to Download
Now, give your new YouTube movie a preview. If you need to make some changes, tap the ‘Back to edit’ button - this will save you from having to start over.
If you want to save the video back to your device, do so via the green ‘Download’ button. Like before, you can save it to your Dropbox or Google Drive accounts.
