Video creatives today have a slew of options to help complete fantastic looking and well received projects. It’s no longer necessary to have high end equipment and expensive, space consuming software that requires a ton of processing power and a top of the line computer set up. Don’t you just love the internet? Of course you do… so let’s look at some of the current available options for movie makers that are hosted online and that offer at least a portion of their services for Free.

Create beautiful intros and outros with a variety of design elements, music, and clips. Create from scratch or use one of their provided templates to build your video. Trim and splice videos, overlay audio tracks, and add text in this incredibly feature rich and easy to use online video editor and creator. As far as usability and features go, has a lot to offer, though they’re not so friendly about free sharing (see screenshots). You can access Kizoa from a computer browser or from their iPhone app.
Adobe offers its own online video creating option called Spark, which allows for creating graphics and webpages also. The platform is clean and simplistic, making it a great option for beginners and people looking to make a simple video quickly. They are limited as far as free sharing goes, such as placing watermarks and not offering a lot of choices without a paid subscription. I found the site to be somewhat glitchy at times as well. I tested it on Firefox, which could’ve affected it, and I had other open processes that could’ve attributed to that as well, in all fairness.
Choose from a wide assortment of templates, add text, icons, and other elements easily, and save. Spark also allows you to add your own voice elements through a record feature. You can access this video creator via the website or you can download their app for Apple.
Generate Full Featured Voice-Overs From Any Text
ScriptVocalizer is a new, first of its kind, groundbreaking app, which allows you to generate full featured voice-overs from any text using raw and direct access to Amazon Polly pipeline without spending thousands of dollars, by simply pasting your text into ScriptVocalizer. It’s that easy. It allows even complete beginners to generate professional sounding voice-overs in just seconds.
Clipchamp is exclusive to Google Chrome.
Create a video (even lengthy ones!) in minutes with Clipchamp. Easily edit and create original video in your browser. Here you can compress, convert & record video, all for free. A one stop place to save time on uploads, save money on storage, and create an entire video from scratch. Access tips and tutorials through their blog and use a variety of targeted templates.
In addition, you can download a WordPress plugin that allows you to receive videos from your users. Just install from WordPress Marketplace, sign up for free trial, and add an upload destination for videos, and add a recorder to your pages and posts. How cool is that?!
“If your site is built with WordPress, you can use our Collect plugin to start receiving videos from your users. People can record instantly on your site or upload an existing video. Files get sent to your YouTube, Google Drive, Dropbox, MS Azure or AWS S3 account. ” –Learn More
If you’re looking for something that is clean, easy to navigate, feature rich, and less limited in its free version than some other options, then Wave Video is it. Use your own media files or choose from their built in stock footage library and combine multiple clips to create some of the very best branded video content. You can resize, add text and animations, customize colors and fonts, and add stickers and gifs.
And, as they highlight on their site – you can “Make as many videos as you want — every month, on every subscription plan. No monthly limits on the number of videos you create and no limits to your creativity.” They also offer an inspirational social calendar to help keep your ideas flowing. Note however, that Wave Video is for making short clips. The free version allows up to 15 seconds of created video. (see screenshot below for all subscription details.)
Wave Video is one of my top picks for online short video editing options. You have to try this one! I will be doing a more in depth review of it soon…so stay tuned.
