How to use the hidden video editor in Windows 10
Video editing takes a lot of focus, creativity, and most importantly, the right tools to move forward with your idea of how a final video will look. But, sometimes all we need are small adjustments in our videos like cropping, trimming or removing audio. For such small settings, you can download multiple apps. But instead of downloading new apps, you can access basic video editing features hidden in Windows 10’s Photos app.
Here is a quick guide to the Windows 10 hidden video editor.
- Open a video in the default Photos app.
Open the video you want to edit in the Photos app. Right-click and navigate to “Open With,” then click Photos.
- Click on “Modify and create”
Click on the “Edit and Create” option next to the “Share” option at the top right of the screen.
- Select from the drop-down menu options
After clicking on it, there will be a drop-down menu with lots of editing options.
- Cut video
The “Trim” will allow you to have an annotated environment in which you can stretch the length of the video and easily cut the desired part.
- Make your videos in slow motion.
Likewise, the “Add Slow Motion” option allows you to slow down the speed of the video. The more you drag the bar towards the turtle, the slower the duration of the video.
- Add 3D effects to your videos.
Using the “Draw” option from the drop-down menu shown in step two allows users to add custom brush sketches to their videos. Users can also add 3D effects by clicking “Add 3D Effects”.
- More video effects
If you want to add more aesthetic texts to your videos, “Create video with text” is the solution. It allows you to add text in multiple fonts and a variety of layouts.
These are the hidden video editing features that you can find in the Photos app. Of course, if you need more editing features to edit your video, you will need some other software for that. It’s just for those who just want to use normal features like cropping and adding text to a video and don’t have any video editing experience.
