Nowadays, recording a video is becoming far more common, we would like to record our life, a travel, or a teaching tutorial into video using our phones or cameras. Before sharing the videos to others, you may want to quick edit the videos to make it more attractive, then you need an easy video editor to help you to do that.
For example, after I record a video tutorial about how to make a paper airplane, I want to trim off unwanted edges of the screen, trim unwanted front and back paragraphs, adjust screen color, and then quickly convert the format and compression, so that I can share on the Internet, and even make GIF animation. Today I would share a video editor called Clipchamp, Clipchamp is a free video editor that meets the above requirements, and it is really very easy to get started and run smoothly. It allows you to edit five videos per month for free and get more free video credits for each other by inviting friends to become the members of Clipchamp.
