Once you’ve wrapped up your recording,  the hard editing work begins. But what if it doesn’t have to be this way?

It often takes hours of post-production for your raw footage to take shape into an actual video. For some creators or businesses, spending that kind of time isn’t viable or isn’t a good use of their resources. That’s where video editing services come in. 

We’ve compiled a list of the 8 best video editing services out there, and we share some tips on ensuring you get the best bang for your buck. 


  • A video editing service handles post-production of your videos for you. 
  • They’re great for creators and businesses with a bigger budget or limited bandwidth
  • You get access to industry experts, expanded capabilities & save your own time
  • Riverside’s in-built editor is a great alternative for creators who want a quick, seamless, and cost-efficient do-it-yourself option. 

What is a video editing service?

A video editing service is a company or agency that handles all stages of post-production for you. They’re an excellent option for creators and businesses looking to outsource their video editing work. 

You pass them your raw footage, share your vision with them, and they transform your recording into a polished video worthy of publication.

What do video editing service companies offer?

A video editing service’s work is multifaceted but will cover: 

  • Choosing which footage to include
  • Cutting & trimming your clips
  • Combining and sequencing your footage 
  • Color grading & mixing 
  • Adding transitions and/or branding 
  • Responding to your revisions & feedback 

As well as additional services such as: 

  • Adding subtitles 
  • Creating short promotional clips 

Why should you consider a video editing service?

Outsourcing your video editing saves you time, but it also means entrusting your project to a third party. Understandably, some creators might feel reluctant to let go of that control. Here are some reasons you should consider it: 

Save time & stress

A significant factor in favor of video editing services is how much time they can save you. Once you’ve locked in with a service you trust can deliver on your vision, you’ll open up your availability to keep recording and creating. 

For creators or businesses with limited resources, outsourcing is a no-brainer. 

Work with experts

Outsourcing to a video editing service gives you access to industry professionals whose abilities and know-how may well exceed your own. This automatically expands the scope of your project and means you can achieve ambitious results that’ll boost the overall production value of your video. 

No need to invest in editing equipment

Working with a video editing service means you don’t need to think about setting yourself up with the necessary equipment. There’s no need for you to sign up to an editing platform or invest in other types of kit that are typical to a video editing setup. This is a far more practical approach, especially if you don’t intend to ever bring post-production in-house. 

How to choose a suitable video editing service

Video editing services will specialize in different niches, have a particular style or feel, and work at various price points. You can also choose to work with an independent freelance video editor or a dedicated business, depending on what you need. Here are a few factors to consider: 

What kind of video you’re creating 

The most important element is the type of video you want to create. Ideally, you should look for a video editor or editing service with experience creating similar content. This will ensure they can deliver on your specific vision. 


In the same vein, you should definitely browse through their portfolio (if they have one). This will give you the most insight into the kinds of work they produce, their capabilities, and who they’ve worked with previously. 

Experience & reputation

Though ample experience isn’t necessary, you may prefer to work with a seasoned professional rather than someone just starting. That said, video editing fees often align with how well-established a service is. So, if you’re on a budget, opting for a less-experienced (but promising) editing service might be the way to go. 


You should be clear on your budget before you start reaching out to video editing services. The amount you’re able or willing to spend will definitely influence which services you’ll be able to work with.

Is it worth paying for a video editing service?

Though video editing services are a great option, they’re probably not viable or necessary for all creators. If you’re looking for low-key editing or want to save on your budget, then it’s probably better to try and handle the editing side of things yourself. Fortunately, this doesn't have to be complicated!

With Riverside's text-based video editor, editing a video is as easy as editing a text document and we mean this quite literally. You can now use our Ai transcriptions to edit and navigate your Riverside recordings. We offer highly accurate AI transcriptions in over 100 languages that you can instantly download after recording. Better yet, you can use these transcriptions in our editor to:

  • Cut audio and video: Ready for precise trimming fast and seamlessly? Any text you delete in your transcript automatically removes the corresponding video or audio content. 
  • Navigate through your recording: Want to use a specific quote, you found in your transcript? When you select text in your transcript, the timeline playhead will jump to the same point in your recording. 
  • Search for specific phrases in your video: Find that exact moment without hours of rewatching everything! Use the search bar to find a specific phrase in your transcript and timeline. You can even see which speaker uses your search term.

  • Create shareable clips at the touch of Ai. Our Magic Clips tool uses AI to find key moments in long-form recordings and generates various short-form videos so you can turn one piece of content into many.

After editing, you don’t have to worry about any files going out of alignment. With Riverside’s multitrack sync, it doesn’t matter how many edits you make. All your separate tracks stay fully in sync when you export them.
