After filming your vacation with your Android smartphone, do you want to edit a video directly from it without having to go through your computer? You’ve come to the right place, here is our selection of the best video editing apps on Android and iOS.
With the increase in the quality of video capture on smartphones, they easily replace cameras in our daily lives and sometimes even at almost professional levels. It must be said that with recordings in 4K, even in 8K, and with particularly advanced optical or electronic stabilization, smartphones are perfect companions for video.
Once your clips are filmed, a little video editing will make them more attractive and allow you to collect a maximum of likes on social networks. And rather than going through a PC, here we present to you the best video editing applications on smartphones on both Android and iOS.
Adobe Premiere Rush, because Adobe
Premiere Rush is the video editing application made available by Adobe, the specialist in editing software. This service is extremely complete and offers a range of tools for your creations for which you can manage several video and audio tracks. Regulars will easily find their bearings and can even synchronize their projects with the computer version of Adobe Premiere. Note however that Premiere Rush remains quite within the reach of neophytes who will only need a little time to adapt to master the beast.
To take advantage of the full power of Adobe Premiere Rush, you’ll need to access the paid version of the service. Besides, the application is part of the Creative Cloud suite.
Power Director and Action Director, for all levels
If you are looking for a powerful and complete editing application, Power Director is one of the references. The application obviously allows you to apply effects and transitions to videos, but also to manage several audio tracks or slowed down videos. Power Director especially allows the export of your videos up to 4K at 60 FPS, which allows you to obtain a high quality rendering.
On Android, the creators of Power Director also offer ActionDirector, a more general public editor – and therefore more accessible for beginners – but also offering many functions.
However, you will have to put your hand in the wallet each time to unlock these applications to their full potential and without water mark.
KineMaster and LumaFusion, for experts
For advanced, even professional use on some occasions, the KineMaster app is a great solution. You will navigate very precisely — at the frame close — in your content to apply all kinds of visual sound effects or even 3D transitions. The creation of 4K videos in 30 frames per second is also possible.
You can discover the application by its free version which unfortunately adds a watermark on your videos. You will have to switch to the paid offer for a top-notch experience.
On iOS, you’ll also find LumaFusion, also very feature-rich with a design quite inspired by the Final Cut Pro interface. People familiar with Apple’s ecosystem will therefore not be lost.
Quik is simple and free
Quik is the video editor designed by GoPro which obviously has some know-how in this area thanks to its famous cameras. It is one of the easiest applications to use, even the most novice can use it to assemble clips, add music, texts and effects.
The application is not overflowing with features, but its main interest lies elsewhere: Quik is a totally free application.
InShot, the application for your TikTok
The InShot application also offers very simple functions – almost simplistic – and many filters and music for a clean and fast editing that will look great on your social networks.
This dimension is also strongly highlighted on this app which, in concrete terms, is very suitable for making viral TikToks, for example thanks to templates already ready that will chew your work.
Artisto… for artists (logic)
Finally, the Artisto application offers an original approach, like what Prisma does for photos: it allows you to transform your videos with effects inspired by works of art.
An ultra simple, but interesting application to create original renderings.
