For amateurs and professionals alike, WeVideo makes the process of film and video production more flexible.
Overview of WeVideo:
WeVideo is a online video editing platform that lets you create and share videos using cloud storage. WeVideo accommodates amateur video producers to professionals alike with different data plans and pricing. You can upload raw footage from a camera, your computer, or a mobile device, save the footage to your online WeVideo account, and use their professional video editing software to produce to produce a film from anywhere. Making collaborative projects with WeVideo is easy because the project is stored in cloud, meaning that anyone invited to work on the project can make changes and upload video anywhere there's broadband access.
Getting Started With WeVideo:
It's free to get started with WeVideo. You just need to make an account by providing an email address, and creating a username and password. You'll also have the option to sign in with your preexisting Yahoo or Gmail account. Next, you'll need to choose the WeVideo plan you want. I recommend starting out with the free, basic plan so you can get a feel for the features the site has to offer.
Producing With WeVideo:
The first time you use WeVideo, the website will guide you through the process of producing a video step-by-step. First, click on the 'Create a New Project' button, and give your project a name. Then, invite other people to collaborate on your video by emailing an invitation or finding other WeVideo users. Now you're ready to 'Create a New Video'. Once you click on this button, you'll be directed to the online video editor. Then, you'll need to import your raw footage. We supports all video formats, so you can upload footage from any video recording device including video cameras, your web camera, the camera on your mobile phone, or any video file you have saved to your hard drive. You'll have the option to place the files in a shared media folder or a private files folder. With the free account, you'll be able to store as much as 1GB of files. That way you can select the footage that is part of the shared project while storing private footage for use on future projects.
The WeVideo editor gives you a lot of features to enhance your raw footage. With graphics, colors, text options and some basic animation tools, you have everything you need to make a professional quality video. WeVideo also provides a lot of pre-recorded sound you can use to add to your video, or you can upload audio files from your computer or mobile device.
WeVideo has a lot of options for sharing your projects both during production and after you finish. While you edit your video, multiple people can upload footage from multiple locations, and the editing can take place somewhere else entirely - that's the freedom of cloud storage. If your operation is more of a one-man-show, you'll have the ability to edit your footage wherever you have internet access.
Once you're done with your video, you'll be able to find it on the Dashboard under 'Project Videos'. If you want to share it via social media, WeVideo has one-click publishing for Vimeo, YouTube, and Facebook. You'll find this feature under the menu icon on your video.

WeVideo For Business:
Cloud storage offers a diverse platform for group production. With WeVideo for business, you can tailor your account to accommodate the scale of your project, and designate roles for each member of the production. With the WeVideo workflow you can designate administrators, who control access and rights of other team members; editors, who can upload and edit footage; and reviewers, who can view the project in its various stages. Contributors have the ability to upload footage to the site, meaning you could have production members shooting footage in multiple locations, and uploading the raw footage to WeVideo cloud storage to access it from the post-production studio.
