I will second Elizabeth's statement: if you have not tried WeVideo recently, it has come a LONG way in the last 8 months! Big update last February (right after we used it for a project) and more over the summer and recently. One of our most-requested features (rotate images & video) just got added! Very few things MovieMaker and iMovie can do that WeVideo can't: often people miss the fact that there is are three "levels" of editing capability. I think you can only export to Drive (not YouTube) with free version now... unfortunate but still doable. The biggest challenges we have had is with sharing and collaboration: it's NOT real-time collaborative editing, and the process is a little cumbersome. *Eric Hall* *Technology Integration Specialist* *Mount Mansfield Union High School* *Chittenden East SU* On Tue, Oct 22, 2013 at 11:12 AM, Elizabeth McCarthy < [log in to unmask]> wrote: > WeVideo has come a long way in the past year as far as a web based > editor... like most applications there are free versions with limited space > and features and then premium versions where you pay.
