David Lee King posted some great suggestions for video editing tools. One application that he left off his very-comprehensive list is Screencast-O-Matic. I’ve used SOM for several years to record the screencasts for my YouTube video tutorials and I have recently started using SOM to edit my videos as well. This has allowed me to simplify my process with a goal to create videos more regularly and efficiently.
For a few of my most recent videos, I recorded the introduction using my Logitech Webcam and included software.
Second, I recorded my screen demonstration using Screencast-o-matic.
I then imported the video introduction file into SOM and then inserted the video into the screencast recording.
Finally, I added a title and description, and uploaded directly to my YouTube channel.
While the editing functions are quite basic, if you’re just splitting, clipping, and splicing video clips together, Screencast-o-matic is an affordable tool to get the job done.
