How to Edit a Video on Android

You recorded a video resume to land the dream job that you’ve always desired and wanted so badly.

Or maybe you recorded an A-Z fitness course to help your clients get in shape.

Whatever the subject of the video is, it’s important to note that recording is the easy part. 

If you roll out unedited videos, then your audience may soon get bored. 

That’s the reason it’s important to edit your videos – which not only includes adding some music or theme but also involves adding your personal branding elements, closed captions, replacing the green screen with a professional background, and more.

If you are recording a video via your phone’s in-built camera application, then you may need to go through the trouble of importing the video to another video editing software. And if that particular video editing software doesn’t help make all the required edits, then you may need to use another software – which would just end up consuming too much of your time.

This end-to-end time-consuming process is what makes video marketers or businesses think that video production and marketing is time-consuming.

That’s where BIGVU comes in.
