What to consider when choosing a YouTube clip maker

Want to create YouTube clips with no extra effort? With the right YouTube video clip maker, you can. Choose software that clips YouTube videos automatically for you, so you don’t spend hours trimming your videos yourself. For a more seamless experience, look for the option to mark timestamps for clipping all while you're recording. Quick layout templates and customizing tools are also a must! You’ll want templates that follow YouTube requirements, but still give you room to easily personalize your clips with logo branding, backgrounds, and more. 

Not all YouTube clip makers come with recording software, but we recommend this to streamline your clip creation from beginning to end. Look for high-resolution recording software that offers separate tracks. This will give you more editing control. Other recording features to consider include remote guests and if you’re on the go it’s worth looking if your YouTube clip maker has a mobile app. Once you’re done recording and clipping your video, sharing to Youtube should be simple and only require the tap of a few buttons.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you clip a YouTube video?
