Free Video Editing Tools - Video Cutter

Video Cutter Trimmer online Main image

This is part 1 of our series on free Vidds tools.

At Vidds, we’ve worked hard on a powerful video creation app to create beautiful videos quickly and easily. But sometimes you just need a simple tool. We’ve made some free tools to handle basic video editing tasks, and you can use them in your browser without creating an account!

Today we’re talking about the video cutter. We created a tool to easily trim videos in your browser.

It’s super simple to use:

  1. Drag and drop your video file, or click the red box to select a file from your computer.
  2. Select the Trim option.
  3. Drag the start slider to the first part of the video.
  4. Drag the end slider to the last part of the video.
  5. Click “Go!” to trim the video.

We built this because everyone should have access to a quick cutting tool. It’s useful in many different cases, like:

  • You have a screencast recording, but parts of the beginning and end need to be removed.
  • You want to create a social media teaser for a course.
  • You want to show a clip of a YouTube video on your blog.
  • You want to create a small GIF to embed in an email.

Whatever your reason, our online video trimmer is quick and easy.

We know that privacy is important with video content. Our free tools never upload your content to our servers, so your videos are safe and secure because they never leave your laptop.

Need to chop up your video? Try our video cutter out 🙂

Need some other free tools? We also have a tool to convert videos, an app to resize them, create gif clips, add text and image overlays, and take screenshots of videos.

How to add text to a video

How to Add Text to a Video

Adding text to a video is easy in Vidds.

Often, you’ll simply select one of our existing scenes, edit the text, and make some tweaks to the style. Here, we’ll go over adding and editing text elements step by step so you know what’s available and how to create new elements from scratch.

Adding Text to a Scene

Let’s jump right in by adding a new text element. Simply click the “Add Text” icon at the top of the video canvas to add a text element to your scene.

Add text to video screenshot

Changing Text

Once you add the Text element, you can type or copy in the text you want to display, simply input it in the box at the top of the configurator on the left.

Edit text - Add Text to a Video

Positioning and Resizing the Text Element

You can click and drag your text element to position it wherever you want it in the scene. You can use the circle handles to resize as well. As you move and resize, it will snap to the sides of the video (or other elements in your scene), and you’ll see a red line showing what it’s snapping to.

Resize Text Box - Add text to Videos

Styling the Text

With your text element selected, you’ll see the most common style options at the top. Click on the font name to change the font, use the Size dropdown to change the font size, and click the “T” with color block to open the color selector to change the color.

Update Text Styles - Add Text to Videos

Two things to note: The color picker has a transparency slider at the bottom. If it’s all the way to the left, the text will be invisible. All the way to the right and it will not be transparent at all. The second thing to notice is the “HEX value” – the box with the #0045FF in the image above. This is a short code you can copy and paste to other elements to reuse the same color.

Aligning the Text

Depending on where your text is in the scene, you may want it aligned to the left, center, or right, as well as the top, middle, or bottom. You can simply click the Align button and select the new position. Also see “Padding” below to add some space.

Alignment

Changing Letter, Line, and Border Spacing

You can also experiment with spacing to add additional style to your text.

Letter: Add or remove space between each letter in your text. Below, set to -6px, it has a nice compact look, while sliding it greater than 1 pixel will give the text a bold, spread-out look.

Line: Just like the letter spacing, you can increase or decrease the space between each line by dragging the Line Spacing slider.

Padding (Border): You can add space between the element outline and where the text starts with the Padding slider. This makes it easy to drag text elements to the corners and sides of the video, then space the text away from the edge.

Spacing

Adding Text Shadows

Shadows are useful to stylize your text and help it stand out from the background. By default, you’ll see “No Shadow – Add”. Click the add button to add and customize the shadow. Choose a color (including transparency, if you’d like less of a shadow).

Use the Horizontal Offset slider to move the shadow left or right and the Vertical Offset to move it up or down. The Blur slider is used to adjust between a sharp, solid shadow or a soft, diffused shadow.

To remove the shadow, select the “X” button to the right of the Settings dropdown.

Add text shadows in a video

Animating Your Text

The point of video is movement, and we provide a number of animations you can apply to your text. Below the Animations header, you’ll see 3 dropdowns: In (how the text moves into the scene), Out (how it leaves the scene), and Highlight (an animation to bring attention to the element in the middle).

There are so many animations, we won’t explain each one here. They animate based on position (left, right, up or down), fade the text in, or scale it up or down. We also have some “Bounce” animations for a more fun and friendly movement.

animate text in a video

They usually look great in any scene layout, but you can experiment by selecting an animation and pressing the play button to watch and find the perfect animation for your scene.

Container Background and Rounded Borders

You can add a background color to your text element by selecting the color circle and choosing the color you like. You can also adjust the transparency slider to allow it to blend into the background.

You can also add rounded corners using the “Border Radius” slider.

Removing Text and Making a Copy

If you don’t need the text element anymore, you can click the trash icon at the top to delete it.

Alternatively, you might want to use similar text and styles for another element. You can click the duplicate (2 squares icon) at the top to create a new text element with the same settings.

Duplicate or delete text in a video

Positioning

In most cases, you can just drag your text wherever you want. With the help of snapping, it will likely be in the right place for you. But you can also use the Position dropdown at the bottom to enter an exact location.

The locations are percentages, so 0% is at the left/top, and a width or height of 50% is half of the width or height.

position text in a video

Showing your Text Above or Below Other Elements

When your text overlaps with other elements, you may need to change it so it is displayed above or below other elements. 

Element Layering - Add Text to Videos

You can do this within the “Element Order & Timing” Tab at the bottom of the configurator, simply expand this section by clicking the arrow.

Here, you’ll see a list of the elements within the scene. To move an element, you can click the drag icon (6 dots) and drag it to the up or down the list.

Elements at the top show at the front of the scene, elements at the bottom are shown at the back of the scene.

This should cover most of the configuration tools available to you with text elements. We’re excited to give you the tools to bring your visions to life!

Common Problems and Solutions of Adding Text to a Video

Still having trouble? Here are some common problems and fixes.

I can’t see my text.

There are a few possible reasons for this:

  1. The text element is hidden behind something else. In the scene settings, you can drag your text element to the top of the list to fix this. See Showing Your Text Above or Below Other Elements above.
  2. A color may have been set to transparent. Transparency allows some or all of the background to show through. In the text color at the top, make sure the transparency slider is on the right so it will be visible. See Styling the Text above.
  3. The element has been moved outside of the video. It’s possible to accidentally drag an element outside of the video canvas. You can click the element in the Element list in scene settings, then use the Position section at the bottom to reset the Left/Top position to 0 (zero) to update the location.

My color isn’t showing up.

This is usually because of the transparency slider. See Styling the Text above to make sure it’s not transparent.

My text is hard to see in front of a background.

This is a common problem in design. Here are a few options to help it stand out:

  1. Change the text color to see if one stands out more.
  2. Use a bold font or increase the font size so more color comes through.
  3. Use a blurred shadow with a different color to add some contrast.
  4. Blur the image behind the text.
  5. If all else fails, you can set a container background color to something that your text stands out against. Once you find a good color, you can adjust the transparency of the background color so the background is visible but the text can still be seen.

I want to reuse my text style.

You can use the duplicate button at the top of the element to make a copy with the same styles.

I don’t need a text element anymore.

You can use the delete button (trash icon) at the top of the element to remove it from the scene.

How to make videos when you don’t have content

How to make videos when you don't have content

A guide to help you make videos when you don't have any of your own content!

We’ve all been there – we want to engage our audience, promote a product or service, but we don’t have a lot of content.

Luckily, it’s so much easier to work around this problem now! There are tons of resources at the tip of your finger, and we try to help directly within your Vidds account.

First, have a goal

Remember that your goals in the future rely on maintaining good relationships. It’s important to make sure that your videos have a goal, and the goal actually helps your users. Promoting your products and services does help your audience, especially if you have the right mix of informing, entertaining, and promoting.

If you’re looking to increase your audience or engagement, informing and entertaining are great ways to get those eyeballs, likes, and shares. This might be a funny post about your industry or expertise, a behind the scenes look at how something is done, or a quote from someone. In practice, that might look like a meme, a testimonial, a quick screencast of how you accomplish a task, or recording of how your product is made.

When you’re trying to get the sale, promote your product! Of course it’s great to offer a promotional code, but that isn’t necessary. Show your existing images and videos, explain the benefits of the product, answer a question about it, etc. Social media content has a short lifespan, so don’t be afraid to reuse your content occasionally!

Creating the video!

After you have a goal and a video in mind, it’s time to start creating! This is where Vidds will really help you shine! The videos created are meant to engage your audience and keep them watching.

Start with your text and layouts

Vidds breaks down your video into “scenes” – each one is an animated design and layout. It might include a word or two, a sentence, details of a coupon code, event details, or an entire paragraph.

The great thing is, while Vidds categorizes scenes (like Beauty, Brand, Lifestyle, Science & Tech, etc), they’re completely customizable, so you can find the layout that’s perfect for your content, then swap out content and styles.

By starting with your text and layout, it’ll give you some space to think about what other content will go well with that text.

Add Images to Your Video

So you’ve created the scenes that get your point across in text. Now’s the time to find visual content to make your video stand out.

Maybe you found a scene that already has the perfect background or foreground. Congrats, your job is done!

But if not, it’s time to get searching! The Vidds integrated Stock Media search will help you find a great video or image.

Finding the right stock media is easier than it might seem. The subject of the media isn’t usually your exact product or service. It’s more likely to be related to one of the following:

  • The setting it’s used in: Maybe it’s in nature or the outdoors, a classroom/auditorium, around the house, or out in the city.
  • What it accomplishes: Does it make you comfortable or safe? Maybe it’s about the adrenaline rush and excitement. Or maybe it will make you more successful in the workplace, make for a great vacation, or promote better health.
  • The general mood and vibe: Vibrant and exciting? Bold and outgoing? Relaxing? Romantic?
  • And more: How about your brand’s style? Maybe you like a retro feel, or you’re high tech, stylish vs down to earth.

Most of these translate directly to a quick search term. Nature, beaches, and waterfalls? Concerts, night life, city, countryside? Fashion, beauty, health? Cell phones and computers, science and technology, medical research? Try a couple quick searches and start plugging them in! [Check out our 2021 guide to stock video sites here]

Found the perfect photo, but wish it were a video?

Of course, we usually want video content within our videos, but sometimes a picture fits the goal of a video better. If it’s looking a little dull, be sure to try adding the “Zoom” highlight animation. It adds some slow movement to the image you’ve chosen, which might just complete your scene!

Go for a minimalist video

One last option is to go minimalist. It might not work for all videos, but sometimes, using minimalist scenes with little or no video/image content looks great and really highlights your text content! Solid color backgrounds and big, bold text with simple shapes and underlines can look amazing. Vidds includes some minimalist scenes you can start with.

You can enhance minimalist themes further by playing with different animations. Mix and match the animation in for color backgrounds and text to allow them to flow together or contrast each other. Try different animations out, or leave some as “None” so they stick around.

You might be surprised just how much you like them, and how your audience appreciates straight-forward content!

Still stuck? Let’s go through some quick tips

  • I have image/video content, but not text.
    Adding a ton of text isn’t always the right answer. It’s ok to be a brand of few words. Use one or two words that describe your product and highlight what it is. Your audience can create their own story 🙂
  • I still want more text content!
    Follow similar brands and influencers. Look at their old posts that did well and imitate those. No need to plagiarize when there’s plenty of content out there for inspiration!
    Use your previous blog content, product/service descriptions and previous posts to round out the content. You don’t need to rewrite every sentence for every new post!
  • The scene is too fast for my calm mood, or too slow for my exciting content.
    Vidds allows you to control the animation speed of each scene. An animation speed of 1 second or less is going to move quickly, and once you move above 2 seconds or so, it’ll mellow out quite a bit.
  • How else can I set the mood?
    Use the right color for your text and outlines. Play with fonts and sizes. Use sharp or blurred shadows. Add rectangular outlines that are sharp and thin or rounded and large.
  • I want more content of my own!
    People love to see real content that doesn’t look like it’s been manipulated. Don’t be afraid to record a quick 360 of your product, goof around with it in different environments, and don’t be afraid of your poor video/photo skills (although you should make sure it doesn’t look like it’s hiding anything!) You can start with small photos or create a 3-5 second clip of your product in an existing scene.
    You can hide any recording flaws with text or borders 🙂
  • How do I optimize for longer engagement?
    Try to prolong your text. Your first scene could be a simple question or statement that is true of your audience, such as “It’s so hard to find the right X” or “Do you have trouble with Y?” Follow up with related content. If you’re promoting your product, make statements about how it helps. If you’re entertaining or informing, use common formats like “5 Tips for Improving.”
  • Social Proof!
    Yes! Obviously followers and likes help, but you can quote your customers and followers in your scenes. And if you’re starting out, you can quote influencers if it’s related to your video content

Best Stock Video Sites 2021

Best Stock Video Sites 2021

A complete guide to the Best Stock Video Sites in 2021 (original content from VReel.co)

Twenty-twenty was a year filled with uncertainty, restrictions and disruptions to not only our professional, but personal lives too. The creative industries felt the full force of the pandemic with cut budgets, travel bans and much more. Film sets were shut down, agencies went remote and freelancers lost clients. As a result, we saw an increase in stock video sites and an increase in demand for tools that assisted our remote working. It looks like this year is set for much of the same, so here is our complete guide to the best stock video sites for 2021.

In this article we’ll reveal our list of top 5 free stock video sites and top 5 paid stock video sites.

Top 5 Paid Stock Video Sites

VReel have been working really hard over the past year to build their platform into a really great stock video site. What started out as a site exclusively for drone footage has now expanded to offer “regular stock“. Their regular stock is provided in series. This means that every scene is shot from multiple angles giving you far more power to tell great stories when editing your videos.

Not only have they expanded their offering, but they also increased their contributor commissions – making them one of the fairest stock video sites in terms of contributor earnings! All contributors now earn 50% commission on all one off purchases of their footage.

On the VReel site you can purchase footage in two ways:

  1. One-off Purchase
    – 4K = €59 per video
    – 1080p HD = €35 per video
    – 720p HD = €19 per video
    – 480p SD = €12 per video
  2. Monthly Subscriptions
    – 5 videos = €69 per month [€13.80/video]
    – 10 videos = €129 per month [€12.90/video]
    – 25 videos = €299 per month [€11.96/video]
    – 50 videos = €499 per month [€9.98/video]

These prices make VReel one of the best value stock video sites .

So for affordable, incredible drone footage from all over the globe, which will bring you value across all your video projects and a growing library of normal stock series, look no further than VReel.

Also a fairly newcomer to the stock footage industry, Artgrid bring exceptionally high quality footage via annual subscriptions. Launched by Artlist.io the well known music licensing site, Artgrid.io marks their journey into the world of footage. The nice thing about Artgrid is that they work with many professional filmmakers, directors and content creators.

When broken down into monthly costs, Artgrid becomes an exceptionally value driven proposition.

Better still, the quality of the footage makes it a great choice for video editors that need more emotion driven, engaging clips.
