get into it the video editing app I will be using in this tutorial is called cap cut who is also the sponsor of today's video now whether or not this video is being sponsored by cap cut I would still be recommending them to you for your video editing needs cap cut is the only video editing app that I found where there's no watermarks when you save to your video no ads you don't have to pay for anything to access the features plus it's available on both Android and iPhone so I tend to lean towards this app a little bit more compared to all the others because I feel it is the most universally accessible for all of us watching this video all right jumping straight into the screen recording on the top left this is what cap cut looks like I'm going to open the app and because I already have a few videos that I've edited started this is what my home screen looks like for you you will probably just see the options for new project camera and shortcut typically when people need an outside editing app it's because they probably already have all of the clips that they need in the camera roll and Instagram's not the most user friendly to piecing all of those videos together so let's do a new project and for John's birthday we went and made candles it was awesome at a place called candles on tap in Incas so I'm just going to make a little Montage for all of the fun that we had perfect so I'm just selecting all of the clips that I want to use and this one add all right let's go over all of the basic functionalities or most common common functions that I use within cap cut as you could see scrolling all of these videos still have their sounds on and when I'm making a montage that I want to add music to I want to mute everything so there's this button here that says mute clip audio when I click that it's going to mute all of the clips that I've uploaded really easily with One Click Boom video sound is off now I can edit my Clips no sounds to distract me and then I can add audio on top of that right now as you can see I have 4 minutes and 38 seconds of footage uploaded to this project I went to get this video down to 45 seconds because if you still have the version of Instagram where it's 15 seconds per story slide that's about three slides if you have the feature where your stories can now be a minute long then this is perfect for just that one clip so I'm going to shoot for 45 seconds when editing this video what I want to do is get the clip of John grabbing the candle so I'm going to start with the motion with his shadow coming in the maybe the first shot of his fingers there tap on the clip and press split this is going to split where that toggle is and now you can see there are two clips here I'm using two fingers to zoom in so that the clips look like they're a little bit bigger we have this clip on the left this clip on the right I'm going to delete the clip on the left so that this video starts with the hand coming in picking up I'm going to zoom back out I'm going to stop the clip right there there split oh I will want him putting the candle back so we're going to do that we're going to split get rid of the last half the candle back split get rid of the rest let's turn this one up here he says we're making candles what are we doing we making candles perfect so I'm going to start our entire video with him saying we're making candles I'm going to delete this part click and hold on the clip you want and drag it to the beginning now the video Starts Here continuing on with other functionalities you have when you tap on a clip you have split speed volume animation delete remove back background style extract audio edit filters adjust enhance mask chroma key overly overly overlay replay stabilize opacity voice effects copy reverse freeze Graphics so you got a lot of options and all these are free common ones that I use I use split as you saw I was splitting up the clips before speed if you want to speed up your Clips slow them down for example if you want it to look like a hyperlapse but you didn't record it in fast motion upload the clip select speed select normal speed it up however you want go back you have volume obviously you can mute Clips adjust the volumes there animations of this clip you can fade in the clip Fade Out the clip so kind of like transitions this one we could fade in adjust how long the fade in is let's do one second and you could do Fade Out let's I like the rotate and that way this next clip maybe I could have the animation in rotate the other way Shake let's see what that looks like side by side yeah that's pretty cool so you got both booom yeah so you have those animations you have delete remove background this is pretty cool if you have somebody in frame and you want to remove the background so it's just them moving around I don't really use style extract audio basic basically means you can pull the audio from that clip this is something that I do when maybe I want to use a Tik Tock sound I could show you how to do that edit this is how you can rotate Clips crop them in filters applying filters adjusting brightness Satur ation sharpening all the things let's see what else do I use stabilize is a pretty good one if your hand was a little bit shaky you can stabilize the clip let's see this one is one where I'm a little shaky while I'm walking so I'm going to click this I'm going to select stabilize I bring it up to recommended come on here we go recommended and this usually takes a while if the clip is longer so now that it's stabilized you can see there's less shaking we also have let's go back to where we were opacity voice effect if you want to change the audio effects copy reverse play the clip in Reverse fre framing Graphics cool so that's kind of the basic functionalities that you can do with specific Clips let's say I finished editing this video and I want to add the audio you could select add audio here select from sounds and if you are connected to Internet and the app is
