▲ ▼ Simple Video editor for beginner youtubers
We all know video editing is hard. After talking to some people, in order to create a 4-5 minute high quality video can take 4-7 hours. Which discourages a lot of people.
I want to cut down that time ten-fold.
In other words, create a video editor that will help you all the way throughout your editing workflow - save time, create HQ videos, see your subscriber count grow.
We have been chasing the exactly same problem. Do check our https://recast.studio and tell me what you think?
What did those people say for the reason, which makes the current video editing hard i.e. what makes 4-5 minutes video take 4-7 hours to edit?
So far, the main pain points are synchronizing the video to the music, trimming clips perfectly, and finding the right order of putting clips one after another (and then resynching to the beat).
Note: I'm still in process of talking to youtubers - it's very likely going to be an on going process for the next month or so.
I was looking through a popular tech channel (I forgot the name of it) where an employee reads from a script several times and then the last take of the script (the full read-through without errors) is taken. A lot of the editing is going through and finding where the employee reads the script without errors, or taking correctly read sections.
Given a script S and voice V which, when transcribed yields S' (a transcription sufficiently close to the script), perhaps an algorithm could be created to match up the video segments and parts of the script. Then, the editor's job would be to pick the longest length of video which aligns with the script, or to choose multiple pieces which together equal the entire script. The pieces would automatically be tagged to assist the editor and they could just click on the item which is the longest.
There is always a need gap to save customer's time, definitely so in video editing and I appreciate you looking into it.
e.g. My main problems when it comes to video editing delays are -
Thanks for the feedback!
Yes, I am definitely looking deeper into the core issues. One thing I find very difficult is getting people to tell me the whole story. So I need to read between the lines :)
Any tips on getting people to spend 10-15 minutes to talk this?
Thanks for sharing your issues, I definitely appreciate it!
(of the above, masking is an order of magnitude more complex than the others, implementation wise ;))
So, it's easier to ask to the people who come here searching for 'Simple video editor for youtube' what they want than asking some random individual about building a video editor.
That said, I would suggest you to derive a mechanism to identify novice YouTubers who are having issues editing their videos and then hear their editing woes(But identifying the core problem within those woes would be completely on you.).
> Unfortunately, on average people don't know how to identify the core problem for their issue and Builders don't know how to ask for the core problem. That's the main reason I had to create this platform in the first place - To understand the grammar of problems and startup ideas.
Awesome! I wish I'd known about it sooner :D

I kinda' have found this more or less (via reddit), but it's a lot harder than I originally thought. I need to iterate through this, and improve on the process.
> True, an example to show that problems complexity varies. But, if there's one thing Machine Learning does better than humans, it is image processing and so you will find a way when you want to address this.
Agreed - if this is an issue for a lot of people, I guess I'll find a way to solve it :)
