Once you tap on the Video screen, press the + icon to create or edit a new video. If you have already edited a video here in InShot, it will appear here as a draft. Tap on + to see it, then choose between editing it further or opening it up to an editor like your Camera Roll so you can use another app’s effects!

To start creating a video, you can either choose your photos and videos from your Roll, Albums, or Photo Library. With all the images selected, tap on Use as video clip at the top right of the screen. If you want to create a new blank video, just select Blank.

Position of Clips

The clips are arranged on the timeline in the order they were added to the video. However, you can easily change their position whenever you would like. Simply touch and hold any video clip in the timeline to enter the rearranging mode and then drag it over to a new location.

Zoom Option

When it comes to digital video, we all have a lot to learn. The pinch in and out gesture is just one of the many ways you can take advantage of video editing. It lets viewers see how large or small an image is going to be before they even hit play.

Delete Video Clip

To delete a specific video clip in your video, tap on the clip to select it. You will see a white border around it. Then tap on the Delete tool in the toolbar at the bottom of your screen.

Use Effects

When you are applying a visual effect to one of your clips, the change will be applied permanently if you hit the single checkmark icon only but if you want to apply that effect or edit to all other clips as well, then you have to press on the double checkmark icon instead.

Easily Change Video Size

inshot video size ratio

Your phone’s camera most likely operates in either portrait or landscape mode. In the same way, different video capturing apps work in either a horizontal or vertical capacity. So what happens if you need to share a video that doesn’t fit within one specific frame? The most likely option for posting it is making some adjustments like cropping, adding borders, and then reposting it. However, there’s also another option: just go into the app that produced the video and change its canvas size!

In inshot video editor, select the Canvas option to select the video size as per your requirement.

Background Change

If your video has white background due to the change in aspect ratio from one camera mode to another, you can color the background or blur it. To do this, on Android you can select the Background tool in the toolbar and then choose between color or a blur effect. On iOS devices, there is no option to select colors but only between different ways of blurring: Gaussian Blur, Motion Blur & Zoom Blur.

Crop Option

Use their sliders to adjust your photo’s brightness, contrast, and shadows, or add a vignette to focus on a specific section of the photo. For example, when taking a portrait photo of someone’s face you can darken everything around them making them really stand out more in the shot. Don’t be afraid to really push it up as sometimes it can make for some pretty cool results. All effects have an adjustable slider that allows you to fine-tune your adjustments further if needed.

The Trim Editor works to simply remove unwanted parts of your video. You can scrub through your video, and press the dots marked by “start” and “end” respectively when you find something that needs to be deleted.

The Cut tool removes content in the middle of your videos, keeping only the beginning or end. To cut a video into two parts, create two separate cuts then move one of them over the other.

Using Split, you can create multiple clips from one video to use in different social media posts or other marketing materials.

Video Speed, & Rotate
