The next step after shooting a video of your children is to edit it and make a proper movie. A home-made video or movie could be anything from 30-seconds long clip to an hour-long movie.
But mothers know recording a video of their kids is not an easy task. They would either keep running around, or do nothing at all when they see a camera. So to remove unwanted patches of the video and to compile the good parts, you must edit using a video editing software.
You must consider which features you'll need while editing your video. Professionals use will have very different needs than people editing their own videos. So it is better to be realistic about what you'll want, so you don't end up paying for software which you don't need.
Which video formats you'll be shooting in also makes a lot of difference, as not all raw footage will work with every program.
For editing your little ones’ videos, you will need a good editing software (or app if you are editing in your smartphone). Free video softwares like Windows Movie Maker, MPEG Streamclip, VSDC Video Editor and Avidemux.
The basic editing software which comes with all computers whose OS is Windows, is the Windows Movie Maker. It is very handy and simple to use.
Import the video from the camera to your computer and arrange the clips in the way you want it. Cut unwanted parts of the video.
The Split option allows your to cut the movie into different parts. Play the first movie, and when you get to the part where you want to put a transition or effect, click on Split.
You can add music, text, or any other effects that you want to add in the video. For example, a few minutes or seconds of it can be in black and white, while you can keep the rest of it in colour.
