How to Edit Social Media Videos with Movavi Video Editor


Social media has become a popular platform to publish videos, and the right videos could help you to build your following by leaps and bounds. Of course viewers on social media tend to have high expectations from the videos they watch, which is why it is important that yours look good or they might not be able to attract attention and engage a wide enough audience.


As you can imagine you need to be able to edit your videos in order to ensure they look good and are of an acceptable standard. That is where Movavi Video Editor can be a big help, as it will simplify the task and allow you to edit your videos in much the same way a professional would – even if you have no prior experience.

The first step you would normally take is to compile the video footage, and to do that you need only launch Movavi Video Editor, click ‘Create project in full feature mode’, then click ‘Add Media Files’ and select the videos you want to use. Once the videos have been added they’ll appear in the ‘Timeline’, and you can drag them around to arrange the sequence in which they appear and trim out any unwanted segments.

Next you can improve the quality of the video or fix any issues that are present such as shaky, interlaced, or blurry video segments. Within Movavi Video Editor you’ll find several tools that will let you manually or automatically adjust the color settings and rectify any issues that you require.

Once you’re satisfied with the structure and overall quality of the video, you can then give it some flair or polish so that it stands out. There are a number of ways in which you can do that using Movavi Video Editor, such as by:

  • Adding background music to accompany your video or a voiceover to narrate it.
  • Applying special effects and filters to transform the style and atmosphere of the video.
  • Inserting text fields that can be customized to create unique captions, titles, or subtitles.
  • Including animated transitions between video segments to link your video together seamlessly.

Depending on what you’re trying to achieve in your social media video, you can pick and choose the features in Movavi Video Editor in order to execute your vision. Rest assured each one of them is designed to be easy to use and intuitive, and it won’t take you more than a few minutes to apply it. After you’re done editing the video, you can even save it and automatically optimize it for any social media platforms with the help of the presets that are available.
