Very disappointed as this video edit s/w is not free as you mentioned for Mac. During export, it adds watermarks and also adds sound along with bad export quality. I wasted my time and no result. Uninstalled from my mac and how to find some other good recommendation for video editing, For now not happy.

Sorry rishab. At the time of making the video there was no added watermark or sounds. They clearly have changed their business model since

kind of disappointing to use the software and when you play your exported video you see the watermark and on top of that you here a piano key strike throughout your video. I'm guessing this is their way to get you to buy or unlock the version that removes these 2 things. Wish these application vendors would simply indicate these types of things at the download page so the potential customer's time is not wasted. A simple disclaimer advising of these additions to the non-purchased output files would be greatly appreciated..More transparency in this area is needed.

I agree and I’m sorry it’s happened to you. At the tim i made the video there was no watermark nor any sound. They’ve clearly changed their business model. Thanks for pointing it out

Okay, now that I've had the opportunity to actually do this, I'm finding it far more problematic. Went through the tutorial and edited the video on HitFilm Express and it went fine. Uploaded it to Facebook and it looks terrible. Way too zoomed in and literally unusable. Not really sure what went wrong, but disappointing as just the upload to FB alone takes quite some time.
Ranking Academy (1 month ago)
Not quite sure what's happening here Jon. Difficult for me to tell to be honest. It shouldn't be the case
Jonathan Lee (1 month ago)
Tried both "fit to height" and "fit to width". Really made very little difference once uploaded. There must be more to this.

Hi Luc - another straightforward, well presented tutorial. I found HitFilm very problematic downloading and trying to get it to operate. I checked the spec of my laptop against what it states on their website and I am waaaay covered. Just couldn't get it to work :-( However, if it's of help to you to point others in another (free!) direction, I've found and used VideoPad (which looks and works almost exactly the same as your demo of HitFilm (it's uncannily similar tbh!) and installs and runs very well. You do need to have 64bit and an absolute min of 4Gb for all these editors (think you ought to mention that in the details below your video) but, once you have a few dummy runs, it's pretty simple. Thanks :-)

This doesn't work. The exported project always comes out as 1920 x 1080 no matter how much you change the project options. Rubbish software and even worse presentation.

Question. Can I make a banner that has three videos linked together as one for a cover photo for fb? For example; a video of two people then a video in the middle of the two people?
mystic watson (3 months ago)
@Ranking Academy I mean to post three videos, that when you look at it. It has three at once playing. So there would be a person video a graphic video and another person video as a animated banner.
Ranking Academy (4 months ago)
Not entirely sure i understand your question but you can definitely stich up 3 videos in to one if you want to as long as you don't exceed the time limit

Try camtasia. I think you can download a trial version
Jobayer Hossain (4 months ago)
Any other software u can suggest to edit video size? I just need to resize the video .TIA.
Ranking Academy (4 months ago)
Unfortunately it looks like since I've made the video they have introduced the watermark. Nothing you can do about it about from paying for a subscription :-(
Angelie Sarreal (4 months ago)
Thank you for the helpful tutorial! However, upon publishing my edited video, it shows the logo of the editing platform. How do I take it off? Thanks!

@Ranking Academy is it possible to remove watermark? Or any other software? Please help.

Weird. It seems they may have changed the way they work since I published this video as there was no watermark when i created mine.

Actually what I need to see is a tutorial (or a solution) to create a video using a few images of fabrics. Each “stripe” would appear vertically, in a split of a second from the previous one, ending up in some kind of a quilt (not sure if I can make myself clear).

One doubt related to Facebook friend list, What happens if we delete a friend request?, Do they remain as our follower?, Can they see our future posts on their timeline?

If you delete a friend request then tehy will not be your friend in the first place. If you delete them as friend they will no longer have access to your posts

Love your videos! Can I ask though... When I am editing in the HITFILM download and right click on anything at all I receive an error message that reads: "We're Sorry. HitFilm Express encountered a problem and has to exit. To help us fix this problem, please send the crash report to us." and then the program completely shuts down. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! :) ila.
