If you need to edit it use YouTube’s editor or Adobe Premier Elements or Windows Live Movie maker or Imovie or Sony Vegas Each of the editing software have their ups and downs Windows Live movie maker is easy to use, but does not offer the ability to utilize Green Screening (advanced strategy)
Youtube is easy to use, it’s built into the place you will “store” your videos and well….it’s free =) But you can not do green screen. The effects are VERY limited Sometimes has “glitches” (your work is auto saved so its not the end of the world…just an inconvenienc)
As far as the software packages available for more advanced video marketers We prefer and use Adobe Premier Elements (they are on version 12) This is an everything type editor Does Green Screen Has multiple transitions and animations Complete “wizi-wig” for captioning Pro-Level editing software It takes a little more technical know how to use (not quite as easy as the others mentioned
